"I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I am older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else." As we are leaving summer I can feel Glasgow is getting more and more grey again. So I thought this colorful photo would be perfect for today.
“There have been men before … who got so interested in proving the existence of God that they came to care nothing for God himself… as if the good Lord had nothing to do but to exist. There have been some who were so preoccupied with spreading Christianity that they never gave a thought to Christ.” - C.S Lewis
Always enjoy reading C.S Lewis, this is a thought provoking novel that leaves you pondering eternity.
Did a bit of shopping at the weekend, had to get some jeans and joggies, can’t really kick about wearing shorts in Glasgow unfortunately as it’s raining 🌧 80% of the time and it’s freezing ❄️
Anyhoo got a pair of jeans from @zara and there was a time I would dream to fit into any clothes from that store. I still find it incredible that I can fit into a slim fit pair (bit tight around the quads mind you) but that’s the style nowadays innit?
I remember back when none of this shit would fit me and it would demoralise the fuck out of me. The only thing I would wear that was comfortable was the XXXL tshirts and joggers from Asda George (nothing wrong with Asda George btw) but at the time I wished the clothes from these high street stores would fit, unfortunately I was that fat they didn’t.
So what? I got a pair of jeans from Zara. Am I trying to show off? Not at all. Having the luxury to go into a store like Zara and get a pair of slim fit jeans is not something I’m gonna take for granted, because it’s something I was never able to do when I was obese.
Work has been so exhausting lately. You truly don't understand how hard hospitality is until you've worked 10/12 hours a day constantly on your feet with a list of 17 different things to do in your head. Between the festivals and the championships and all the other going ons in Glasgow, I admit defeat. You have won. 💀 If someone could run me a bath, light me some candles, burn some incense and stick on Tom Waits that would be lovely.❤
We're looking forward to welcoming the multi award-winning @lochlomondmalts and @glenscotiamalts to the festival on Nov 10th. Have you got your tickets? There are a few left at @ticketsscotland for Session 2 only! Hurry!
@ajoanavalente and I are happy to announce a proposed date for “Glasgow Bread Bunch” on the evening of either Wednesday 26th or Thursday 27th September depending on location availability and your guys availability! Please let us know in the comments below or DM us! Glasgow Bread Bunch is for bakers of all skill levels who have an interest in learning more and meeting fellow bakers in Glasgow! We have a few things planned for the future but we want to hear your ideas! Today we both wanted to try @forfikasake and we both loved it! Their Reuben is one of the best I’ve had in Glasgow! Maybe we could Bread Bunch here in the future!
