I love craft alcohol and it is something I’ve felt passionate about for such a long time, I just don’t know where to start with Scottish craft drinks. Ever since I worked in a restaurant in Kelso in my teens where the owners also owned a craft beer company I’ve been interested in this industry.
I love the creativity and passion that clearly drives those who start up their own craft distilleries and breweries. Craft gins and rums are not something I’m very familiar with and I really want to move my alcohol tastes past Tesco’s Zesty White Wine. Scotland has such a booming industry of craft alcohol and I want to get involved.
I’m back with another Little Things! When I first re-started this series a few weeks back I had the intention of doing it every single Sunday as a happy little conclusion to the previous week. I love starting things on a Monday, so reflecting with closure on a Sunday really sits well with me.
However one of the reasons I re-started The Little Things was because I didn’t like the structure and just wanted to enjoy writing them. This list of little things here has been pulled from a word document I keep on my laptop and continuously add to – creating a more varied collection.
I am aware I am six months late to making this but one evening whilst watching Bad Education I was overwhelmed with the need to write up a quick fuck budget for 2018. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of a ‘fuck budget’ then you need to educate yourself ASAP with the words of wisdom of Sarah Knight in The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k.
It is indeed life changing. Sarah Knight is one of my favourite writers and I am always finding myself turning to her teachings when I’m in a pickle. Charlotte wrote up about why you need to give her books a whirl and I’m here today to share my very important fuck budget that I know everyone cares about.
I am now the biggest advocate on local libraries. Heck, I talk about them at some point now every day to anyone I’m talking to. Friends, family, people online, people I meet on the street – I’m a woman obsessed when it comes to the library. And I think this is bloody great. Local libraries are such an important and useful resource for so many people and I guess I just want to shout out them a little bit more.
My experience with using libraries first came when I was around 6-7 when my mum would take me and my younger sister to the library in our town. I absolutely adored going. I treasured my library card, always checked out as many books as possible and explored so many different genres as a result of having access to them in the library. I stopped going to my local library in my teenage years as I used the smaller library at the high school and then didn’t borrow books at all in my late teens.
Blogging is dead apparently. But I would like to disagree. Yes, content creation is changing and developing but I don’t think blogging is finished just yet. I am still spending lots of time devouring the posts my favourite writers are sharing on the internet – from travel to lifestyle to interiors to Love Island chat.
This post is inspired by Jemma at Dorkface after she shared her favourite bloggers who are keeping the community alive. I loved seeing this kind of support and enthusiasm for blogging! A few of those mention I am also massive fans of but there were a couple new ones who are now firmly included on my reading roster.
