Being an East End girl, formerly of The Gorbals, I used to take things from pubs all the time.  Glasses mainly, usually half full, drinking while walking home, toilet paper, the odd bottle of Vodka from behind the bar if the staff weren’t looking.  Now I only take away memories, old and new.

Gia’s

Last night I put my bet on a new and very chic eatery, which is sure to be a massive hit with East Enders and anyone else who cares to take a trip down Shettleston Road!

You will love it!

Summer’s End!

Dimora 

The end of Summer Party at Dimora happened to be on one of the hottest days this month! On Saturday I spent a lovely afternoon in the Pimm’s Garden with beautiful friends and wonderful food.  Dimora,  is in Newton Mearns, on the outskirts of Glasgow.  The food is authentic and made using local produce, where possible but also Peppe, the owner, imports specialities from his home in the region of Campania in Italy.
