With the studio up and basically functional the past couple of weeks have been devoted to fixing the little discomforts and testing the space out.  First and foremost the heating was a problem as it always got bloody cold so I tested out 3 different methods: electric convection, electric radiator and a gas cabinet heater.  …

Most of the first week was spent tidying things up and moving things in.  Before we moved in the landlord carried out some work on the property which meant there was a solid coat of dust on everything and it took washing the entire floor 5 times to remove it.  As well as that we …

I had my first civil partnership on Saturday there; was a lovely ceremony in the West Brewery on Glasgow Green.  The hall was beautiful and the couple were lovely and on great form; they never seemed to stop smiling the entire day.  I did face a problem that I’ve been warned to expect; the relative …
