Maltese Falcon


After reading The Good Thief’s Guides in which The Maltese Falcon is the main characters favourite book I went out an bought  it myself .  It is fantastic!!

It has everything I look for in a book, crime, suspense and someone out to prove everyone else wrong.  It is easy to see where Chris Ewan gets his writing style from and that is no bad thing.

It follows Sam Spade as he searches to find the missing Maltese Falcon while being bombarded from every direction by people wanting to pay him to find it and hand if over to them all while he is playing his own game against them and the local police.  It’s not easy to keep up with all the comings and goings in this book but it is well worth the read.

Ups, downs and roundabouts


Lots of ups and downs over the last few weeks and to be honest there haven’t been any roundabouts but it made a better title than just ups and downs.

Last weekend was amazing, this weekend is shaping up to be quite good too but the bit in the middle was very odd, even for me.

Last weekend I went to see the Muppets and spent the whole time laughing, it is amazing. If you haven’t seen it you’d better get a move on and go.

Sunday night I went to a gig with someone who is fast becoming one of my best friends, love her to bits.  After a few missed trains and other transport issues we finally got to Oran Mor.  The gig itself was the Jezabels who are hard to describe but alternative/indie rock just about covers it.  They were supported by the John McIain Band who were brilliant as well (The saxophone sold it to me from the off).  Another missed train, entirely our own fault for going to the pub between gig finishing and train leaving, and a taxi back to town then home via another pub…

Monday morning I was a bit slow on the up and poor Hayley had been up for a couple of hours trying to work the TV then we headed off climbing.  A good session and lunch to boot :).

Monday night I had a sever case of the post weekend blues and just felt generally rubbish for some reason this carried on for most of the week and a lot of stuff has been buzzing about in my head and I’ve been generally a bit lost.  This was all changed last night with a good night in the pub with the usual bunch and a few who have been away for a while.  Funny how you don’t really miss someone until they come back then you realise you have missed them for whatever reason.

Tonight is a flat party the off to the Garage with the same bunch from last night (give or take a few), should be good 🙂

That’s enough of the rambling for just now.
