Review: One Square – Chocolate afternoon tea

9th November 2016

You just know that an afternoon tea beginning with a chocolate-themed guessing game is going to be good – and it didn’t disappoint!

12 hours in Dundee

8th November 2016

It all started with the wrong train ticket and a missing railcard. I remained calm because I refused to give up at the first hurdle. A drive past Dundee at the weekend was disheartening, and I was rapidly regretting my decision to visit. But I didn’t want to leave Dundee unseen – we don’t have that many cities in Scotland.

I first encountered Wahaca at the start of autumn when they were giving out free tacos in the park. It was a good taco, and it was a sunny day.

When somebody asks the question, ‘what would be your favourite superpower?’, I always say that I’d love to be able to teleport myself to anywhere in the world.

My hearing is impeccable – I could hear a tap being switched…

Make your own home recording studio

13th October 2016

I recently caught up with my brother and musician Paul at Steakpie Studios for tea and yum yums. His studio is so cool, that I had to get it down on paper in an interview, and ask him how he made it in the first place. So, as a bonus, here’s his guide featuring twelve things you’ll need to build your first homemade music studio.…
