Strawberry Ripple Ice Cream

It’s summer.  Everyone is smiling because the sun is out and the days are long and warm.  The town is bustling with tourists excitedly photographing anything and everything, wandering in to the road when I’m trying to drive places…but that’s ok because I have my windows down and am blasting some happy-go-lucky pop-punk.

As if all of that wasn’t enough, the Commonwealth Games kicked off last night in Glasgow.  Living in Glasgow over the past year or so, build up to the games has been everywhere.  Posters, press, topic of conversation….the anticipation was high.  In some ways I’m a little sad that I’m not living there at the moment to truly feel part of the excitement, but I have a feeling that living less than a mile from one of the major stadiums would have gotten tiresome on day two of my work commute!  I have tickets to two events so I think I’m getting the best of both worlds, experiencing the atmosphere of the athetics (200m final and the 4x100mm relay finals!) whilst watching the rest of it from a comfortable distance away.  I’ve already been enjoying the swimming (Michael Jamieson in particular!) this morning – you really can’t beat watching sport!

Mid-week Moment


1. Commonwealth Games:  Tickets went on sale on Monday, it’s taken a bit of planning and coordination but I think I finally know what I’m applying for- 200m final for Team Jamaica, 10m platform diving for Tom Daley (don’t judge) and some swimming events for the Scottish swim team.  Hopefully I’ll be lucky with the ticket allocation!

2.  Teen Wolf Season Finale: No more Teen Wolf until the new year, what am I going to do??

3.  Panic! At The Disco – This Is Gospel:  Love this song!

4.  Ricotta Pancakes:  I love the recipes and writing on ‘Nutmegs, seven’ and this looks like a delicious breakfast.  Pancakes for one is totally OK, don’t even worry about it!
