Stage fright



Hi there. Hi new followers. Just a wee bit blog-shy, in front of all these welcome strangers. I'm going to do the blogging equivalent of imagining you all naked, to settle my nerves. GOSH. An attractive bunch, aren't you?

I've not done much in the past couple of days [except for refreshing my stats page periodically and giggling gleefully] due to this horrid exam hanging over my head on Monday. I did of course manage to fit in a spot of shopping and a boozy tapas lunch [pigs cheeks and scallops, so decadent. I plan on acquiring an elegant case of gout] - but multitasking is what we women do best.

And there was that spot of bother earlier when I realised that I don't have a passport, yet I'm going on holiday in 4 days. Easily rectifiable, so they tell me. Excuse me while I hyperventilate with relief.

And so, a musical offering. It's some lovely acoustic-y folk-y stuff. I never quite know the genre for it. Indie-folk? Well anyway, here it is, small and half-formed. I'll be back on form soon enough.

  13. Your blog is entertaining and quite aesthetically pleasing. Hope I get the chance to check out some of your recommended tunes sooner than later. Do you take photographs as well or just have a kick ass eye for imagery? Whatever the case you've got a new follower here. Hope you return the favor =)

  18. I was going to study in University of Edinburgh before I decided to go to Montreal, Canada. It was a drastic change but I was delighted to learn about Scotland, its history and culture. I like your writing, especially how you're able to emphasize and highlight the small details of life in a captivating way. The idea you had for your blog is also original, I recently started mine. If you're any interested in.. well, pretty much anything, check it out you might like it http://attitudeandawareness.blogspot.com/
    Good luck.
