Mrs Bowman is a lady who really reminds me of my dear gran Lockhart. She was in my store last month and I spent ages with her testing pens and chatting about her life. She’s the sweetest lady I’ve ever met and she dropped this off in work for me over the weekend with a gift card for £6 to spend in Costa Coffee. I almost cried. Here’s hoping this is the start of good things coming my way. (The strawberries are to hide her address). Anyway, there are still good people in the world and Mrs Bowman is definitely one of them! 🍓
PSA: if you do good stuff for people/do charity work and then brag about it, it makes you look like an asshole. Do stuff to be good and to do good, not to look good.

the longer I’ve gone without eating meat the more I think this and at first I thought I was a bit of a judgmental bastard but oh man. don’t preach animal rights when you’re happy to ram the poor things down your gullet.
Exactly. I understand when people find it difficult or whatever, it is difficult to begin with, but eating what you profess to love is even more difficult to understand from an outsider perspective. If people want to eat meat, they can, obviously, but saying they love animals and then eating them anyway is so fucked up.
I’ve already seen 2 posts which were indirect replies to what I said, and people are completely entitled to their opinions, just like I am to mine. I’m not being rude about anyone’s personality or attacking anyone, I’m just sharing an opinion about a certain choice some people make.
I don’t understand people who claim to be animal lovers but then eat animals. Like, literally support the killing of animals for food, but apparently that’s loving them? It’s all about personal choice and I do get that, do what you want. But that’s not love. That’s not compassion. That’s convenience.
I still haven’t met anyone I trust enough to cut/dye my hair. Tonight I chopped away at it again. I’ve been doing it all myself for about 10 years and it’s really beginning to show… the front looks okay but the back is a complete shambles 💇👌
I was already heartbroken this morning about the independence results but what has happened in Glasgow tonight has completely broken the rest of me.
As a yes voter, this has absolutely nothing to do with no voters. I don’t think it’s fair to blame them either. It’s extremists and racists and bigots, using the union as a way to focus their hatred and misled views and make it ‘acceptable’ to have these opinions and act upon them.
When young girls are surrounded by grown men and have flags ripped out of their hands, and kids are out in danger, Nazi salutes are being thrown about and whole sections of town are closed off because of fighting, I am ashamed and dismayed. I’m distraught.
This isn’t the city I love, this isn’t my home, this isn’t how I want other people to see us and this is not us.
Please be safe if you’re in Glasgow tonight. I was meant to be going on a night out and patched it, it’s just not worth the risk. Look after each other.
