It does get better…

Watch this, buy this, share this… in any order you prefer.

It’s a very beautiful song with a very poignant message.

Sandra Macbeth is one of this fine crew of singers and also a local Portobello musical talent.

And about a month ago, on a bitterly cold and frosty January night, there was quite an insane 2 a.m. splash in the Firth of Forth involving the Shoogle Sheila herself, a crazy friend in He-man pants and me. I’m a bit hazy over who instigated it and who willingly followed but it was, all in all, a little bit hilarious. Mildly hypothermic… but funny all the same.

That’s how we live it – Portobello-style!

Happy 2012

This is the way to see in a new year – an invigorating dip in the North Sea. We held our own mini-dook for the loonies of Portobello and a lot of fun it was. A sure-fire way to eradicate the remains of any hangover and give your body an injection of fizz.

So my new year’s resolution, courtesy of Baz Lurhmann, to “Do one thing every day that scares you” is ticked off for the first day of the year.

Not sure about tomorrow – drive into an oncoming car (Ad’s suggestion)  or find a lion’s mouth to stick my head inside. We’ll see.

In the meantime, Happy New Year to you all.
