WOOLLIE - BLETHERINGS
Nothing of note to blog about today so it's going to just be a random selection of bletherings from me!
The week passed quickly, lots to do at work and lots of play. I went to a baby shower on Tuesday, knitting group on Wednesday, where we had our first male knitter and where the weekly schedule on the notice board has the knitting group listed as the "new world terror threat" - now that one really made me laugh!!
Friday I went to see Juno at the cinema - it was a great film definitely worth watching and Ellen Page was stunning as Juno. The music wasn't half bad either and on Saturday I wandered into town to buy the soundtrack - it is every bit as sweet and funny as the film - and the fact that it has 2 tracks by one of my favourite bands Belle and Sebastian makes it all the better - you can hear Piazza New York Catcher here! Their wistful sound suited the film perfectly as did the tunes from The Moldy Peaches.
Saturday evening I went to Glasgow to go out to dinner with friends (oh and to try on a bridesmaid's dress - I'm going to be a bridesmaid again in August - 6th time!) We haven't been out in Glasgow in a long time - I studied in Glasgow for 5 years but slowly over time everyone seemed to migrate to Edinburgh so nights out in Glasgow are quite rare!
Check out this article about Greg Mortensen and his charities Pennies for Peace and CAI which build schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan - truly inspirational.
And to end the weekend, here are some of the marvellous sunrises and sunsets that I have been lucky enough to see recently (including tonight when the sky was the most amazing shade of yellow!)
1. Sunrise Dundee - the view from my window (but maybe not for much longer!)
4. Sunrise - My window again
5. Sunset - The Tay Bridge
