I just wanted to say how incredibly overwhelmed I am at the number of responses I had to my last post. I'd been writing it and re-writing it for a couple of weeks and was really nervous about publishing it but everyone's responses have been amazing - I can't tell you how much every single one meant to to me. Some made me smile, some of them made me do a wee cry (although if we've established anything from my last post it's that I'm not exactly slow to cry); from struggles you've been through to struggles you're going through, sometimes I think all we need is to know that you're not alone in going through something. I've saved them all in a folder on my laptop to come back but for now I just want to say a really big, full-hearted thank you.

Today's post is a wee catch up on a few things I've been up to as of late. The first thing is melting. That's right, it hit a whopping 27 degrees in London on the day that clever Amy decided to wear a wool jumper. Scotland has ruined me and I forgot a cosy jumper might not be that appropriate for the rest of the UK in May. My face might look relatively composed but the veins on my hand tell a different story: this girl is one degree away from turning into a puddle. I had been really excited to wear my new jumper though so part of me is still really happy that that happened. Would not recommend as a beach cover-up though.

The second half is some snaps from a recent stay at The Blythswood Hotel in Glasgow. I've been there a few times for meetings but never to stay over, so when my Mam came over to visit last month the hotel very kindly had us in for a wee overnight stay. It's so very grand and they've had a whole load of exciting people stay there; from Mariah Carey to Paolo Nutini (why he keeps insisting on visiting places without me I'll never know). We started our stay with a lovely massage down at the spa, which is always welcome for my grandma back, and then came back up to the room for a wee gin before heading down for dinner. I've had food there a few times and it's never disappointed and they're always so, so accommodating when it comes to allergies and intolerances. We went back to our marshmallow bed for a luscious sleep and then got up relatively early - which we only do on very special occasions, like when a bacon sandwich is on the cards* - so we could squeeze in breakfast and another wee visit to the spa. It's a really lovely wee haven to escape to if you're in Glasgow looking for either somewhere to stay or for a nice relaxing spa day!

*My Mum has said she'd like me to tell you that it's the best bacon sandwich she's ever had. And she's had a lot of bacon sandwiches in her life.

I am definitely due another trip to Glasgow - it's been a good few years since my last visit and this hotel looks hella stylish and Instagramable (that's what it's all about, right?). By the way, your little spotty dress is so sweet - and those Cher from Clueless trousers = YAS.

P.S Did your mum take these photos of you? If so, she's got mad skills!
