It's been a busy few weeks since Christmas. I've been adapting to my new job, flat hunting (big fat tick, moving in just a few weeks, I'm so excited!) and volunteering with Celtic Connections (18 days of amazing live music and partly the reason why I moved here). Have petted quite a few pooches along the way, but it was always too dark or they didn't have much time to chat and take pictures.
This sign on Bath Street made me smile and, while it's nothing that special, also a bit emotional. It's nice to be welcome, it means being accepted for who you are and this sort of openness is still what I love most about this city. We're still not sure where the future will take us in this country, especially those of us with EU passports, but it's important to keep being pawsitive and live in the present, like all the fabulous doggies out there!

Yesterday was a great dog cuddling day. Met ten year-old Sasha (isn't she beautiful) and her dad Scott at the bus stop and as the bus didn't arrive for about ten minutes there was plenty of time for some good back scratches. ❤️ She's just had a health scare, but luckily it wasn't serious. Her dad lost his previous dog to bone cancer, so he was very worried. When we got on the bus a lady who came out put her heavy shopping bags down for a cuddle with Sasha before we could all could get on, gotta love this city. When I got off later, Sasha gave me some licks on my hand on the way out, awww, hope I'll see her again! Then at our choir party in the pub I met Dougle the cockapoo, not quite as boisterous as Sasha, but more cuddles and tummy scratches when he was not busy hunting for food under the tables 😂

I can't believe it's already December! Opened the first door of my two advent calendars today, mulled wine scented candles are out and got a mini Christmas tree to decorate later. In Germany we never do this until just before Christmas but I won't be in Glasgow for the holidays, so am making the best of the next three weeks here.
I met adorable Rufus on Buchanan Street today, he's a rescue from the Dogs & Cats Home in Cardonald and was ready to head home to his cosy blanket. So was I, have a bit of a cold at the moment. Rufus' mum was waiting for the group in the video to finish their busking for Palestine. Have just been to some films by Palestinian filmmmakers part of @documentfilmfestival last night, fascinating, check it out if you're in Glasgow or online for anyone else.
Have a lovely first Advent 🕯️wishing you all a peaceful weekend with many cuddles!
