My mother says that sometimes, being Glaswegian and all. I think I may petition for it to become part of the jargon of the Church. Of course, a muckle is preferable to a meikle but a meikle is better than nowt.

I have a confession to make. I don't want to say it out loud because then I have to admit that there is something going on. But I know fine well that I need to learn not to be so proud so here we are. You know when I say that those silent periods (like … Continue reading Confession
We met when he was in third year at high school and I in second. He was my brother's friend and a staunch atheist. He was also one of the most awkward people I'd ever met so naturally we got on well.
