A Very Scottish Evening

Last week I was invited to ‘Jamies Traditional Scottish Evening’ at The King James Thistle Hotel in Edinburgh. As you can imagine I was rather excited to be invited to an event (especially one involving food) so said yes straight away.

Dealing with Flaky/Unreliable Friends

Do you have that one friend who always seems to cancel plans last minute? It sucks, doesn’t it!
