Leaflet through the door on a 5K run for charity. Spam email on the benefits of the Paleo eating regime. Pals posting photo's of culinary creations on Facebook, and Im in the queue for the food bank; a hand to mouth existence.
In Scotland, half the people in poverty are working families struggle to survive day-to-day and the basics of food to live being asked to work longer hours for less money while the politicians say they have nothing more to give and the "Queen talks about austerity while wearing a £1 million hat" (I'll thank Frankie Boyle for his razor sharp insights on that) and Im in the queue for the food bank; a hand to mouth existence.
Contrary to common misconception it doesn't always rain in Scotland. This week its been 26 degrees, and Glasgow is awash in t-shirts and shorts, and beer gardens with bees.
