H is Two Months Old

I cannot believe it’s already been two months with Harrison: it’s completely flew in, but at the same time, I can’t remember a time before he was born. I can’t remember a full nights sleep, or what it feels like to have clean jeans on, or what a hot meal tastes like, and to be honest, I don’t mind at all. I’ll apologise in advance for the length of this post – in the month since the last update, my little newborn…

The Entertainer: Glasgow’s Newest Toy Shop

Earlier today, myself and Harrison had the pleasure of a quick whistle stop tour of the new Entertainer Toy Shop in Silverburn Shopping Centre, ahead of the grand opening tomorrow. Founded by husband and wife team Gary and Catherine Grant in 1981, it is very much a family business, and the family values translate to the store. Never has an Entertainer store opened on a Sunday,  and gives 10% of all annual profits to childrens charities. The shop is located directly across from…
