Scottie print detail in red

Scottish Trivia Part 1 – Football, Masala and The Big Yin

The Bay City Rollers were a Seventies worldwide  sensation and the Tartan equivalent in their day of Take That or One Direction! Who doesn’t remember the fans going crazy with their long long Tartan scarves singing along to  “Bye Bye Baby” and “All of Me Loves All of You”.  Scotland has always struggled in the football World Cup and didn’t manage […]

Scottish Nursery Rhymes and Street Songs

Any child brought up in Scotland will know, off by heart, some of our very favourite nursery rhymes.

Introducing Glasgow’s most brilliantly named charity!

I’d like to talk about one of Glasgow’s newest and most brilliantly named charities as we warm up to the festive season – Refuweegee.

Luckily, over the years I’ve been mentor and mentee, and I know mentoring is invaluable. I’m keen to share my experiences to encourage others to do it. My first mentors – […]
