During the past few weeks I've helped promote the new James Bond movie and countless other celebrity ventures. Do you know what I enjoy most about my job? The invisibility, the roof over my head and the food on my table.

Now here's me being AWESOME!

i've always said, "voiceover ... it's better than running a backhoe in the rain."

From day 1 key in the door, my house has been a project. The floor in the sitting room was awful so I bought some slate quarry tiles to cover it. In order to cut them I needed a water cooled diamond bladed cutter. Using an extension lead I set up operations HQ in the middle of Cathcart Street. Once started I had to complete the project. The snow blowing horizontally up the street kept blowing and I kept cutting, tile laying, rinse and repeat until it was all done. When I had tidied the mess I'd made it was time for a shower. Thawing time for a frozen Philip Banks in a hot shower is 20 minutes. Slept like a log that night.

Do I really work for a living? Rolls Eyes

A visit to the Wee Huttie is on my bucket list, Mr. Banks. Yay for roofs over our heads- that roof in particular. Kiss

Having that the privilege of visiting it twice,
I can attest that is is worth the trip (and the fish & chips!) Laugh

Sarcastic (Moves 'Visit Portgordon' up on bucket list, right after 'See Northern Lights', Mental note: practice walking up and down hills by ocean)

Gasp OH. MY. HEAD.

You will be needing to move the chair back upstairs to the guest room, for when I move in. Gasp

I'll go with Todd. (todd disappears and changes his identity )I can't think of anything better than traveling Scotland by bike. Except of course just being there.

On my second trip I flew into Edinburgh and took the train to Aberdeen and Banksey picked me up. I love his little corner of the world.

Bengal Brasserie YES! But everywhere the food is awesome. Salmon? check. THE CIDER OMG.

And there's a bar ... I told Philip he had to take me to a dive bar - a local bar - and he basically said there's a place in town but it's not pretty and I said that's EXACTLY where I want to go. Where the locals hang out. And it was GREAT.

Though I didn't understand half of what anyone said.

And the sea. And the highlands.

Ok. As soon as I can get back to Spain, I'm going to hop a quick Ryanair flight from Malaga to Aberdeen. I have to get there at some point next year.
