      Very forgiving too.......some of my family look like shaved monkeys in a suit.........but top notch in a kilt 👍

      My main worry is taking away attention from the people the party is for because I'm being a little different. Be fine though! ;D

      I moved to London recently for a new job/fixed term job I started. First time I've ever worked outside of Scotland and for the first half of the first week I really felt like an alien. I've been to London before but never alone - you think you know it all from what is seen of the place on tv and all that you've seen of it in the flesh in past visits but you don't. It's far deeper and complex than those facades and because of that it's challenging. I have gradually settled down and am getting a bit more familiar with my work, colleagues and surrounding and I think I'll enjoy my time here - familiarity will breed enjoyment and relaxation within the place but it still wrestles with emotions at unexpected points.

      The weird thing is, it wasn't long I was in London (less than a day) before I started pining for Glasgow, a place I've not lived in or visited for a year and a half and yet during this time I had no real desire to return there. It must be connected to resuming that city vibe but pining for an urban way of life (I'm rural northern Scottish guy) that I knew best (and trusted best) and in Glasgow that was definitely the place. I'm a terrible one for comparing and contrasting the now with the past, without giving the present a chance. My mind has a great ability to crystalise the past to perfection which never allows me to look at the present in a bright shining light by comparison and while that can be beautiful for divulging memories with it's intense focus of moments long gone it's terrible for getting yourself into a melancholic, depressive stupor that leads to saying about the present 'things aren't as good as they were'. Even if that is a load of bollocks (and it is) I realise it's a very powerful and influencing emotion/thought process and one that I can't allow to dictate my thoughts and feelings. I think that pensive mindset is a big part of my desire in wanting to go back to Glasgow ASAP - partly exaggerated  . Of course, I can always visit in the next few months and such a thought excites me a lot but I think in the long term I will look to use my experience in London to return to Glasgow as a far better and more experienced individual than when I last left. You can't turn your back on Glasgow!

      Had a dream I was banned from here because I didn’t like the controversial new 3rd kit that used a different logo. Everyone said it was disrespectful to the club and I was banned for life. I then phoned JD who’s receptionist said he was too annoyed even to speak to me ever again!

      Very weird!

      Evening dudes. You may have missed my acerbic wit over the past few weeks but 3 weeks ago my mum died. It was a sudden collapse kind of thing.

      She was one of those 60 going on 40 kind of people and because it was so sudden it feels like losing someone in a  car accident or major incident. I almost feel jealous of people who get illnesses where they can say goodbye.

      She was probably my best adult mate and if you came to any of of our forum charity nights you probably saw her. At her funeral the collection was for the same thing this forum raised money for -, Zoes Place Baby Hospice in Liverpool and we raised another £350. The crematorium was packed with her friends.

      If your mum is still with you just remember this post. 👍

      Very sorry to hear mate, I can't imagine how you're feeling. Hope you'll start feeling better as time passes, wonderful working raising more money for a truly wonderful cause at Zoes Place. RIP to your Mum John, she certainly raised a good un' in yourself. I'll make sure to make a donation to the charity in her honour.

      Very sorry to hear that Jon and sorry for your loss.

      Can't imagine my Mum not being here and it being sudden for you must have been very hard to take.

      Hope you'll feel better with time.

      Sorry for your loss mate. It’s incredibly difficult to process the loss of a parent.......because they’ve always been there. I spent a long time with a strange sense of detachment / disengagement for a while after my Dad especially. It was like I’d lost the anchor to my life and was just drifting.

      It will get easier but don’t expect too much of yourself.

      So sorry to hear that mate, my mum passed away just over 2 years ago and it feels as raw as ever as she seemed indestructible and frankly i doubt i would still be around if it wasn't for her. Just try to remember the good times

      I am so sorry to hear about that JD - it certainly gives us all food for thought. Life can be going swimmingly one moment and then the next moment it all goes to dark. But you can always emerge from that even if it is a slow process. You can never get over grief, it's just that you find a way to deal with it. Your mother's spirit lives on in you and your family and I'm sure you'll carry her pride with every step you take from now on.

      May she rest in peace.
