I am a serial ranter, usually at my family but now I have this blog at anyone who’ll listen.

So far I’ve been a contemporary dancer, a journalist, a writer, press officer, a  Masters student, a Glasgow Roller Girl, a student of T’ai Chi and chief cook and bottle washer.

I despair at the state of UK politics, journalism and the lack of critical thought taught in schools.

I rejoice at the sound of the Scots language spoken loudly and without shame and at the little things my children say and do.

    Any meagre profits are ploughed back into the league. It’s all very DIY.
