You Want The Moon?

Wowee!! It’s the 1st of December! As time starts to shift towards Christmas and we get out the cocoa, curl on the sofa and watch “It’s a Wonderful Life!” I figured it would be a good time to really embrace the fact that YES, it IS a Wonderful life and yes, I do want the […]

Wicked, Edinburgh Playhouse

Wowee! If you’ve so much as glanced in the direction of Greenside Plaza in the last few weeks, you’ll have noticed the distinct green theme. Oh yes, Wicked is in town! Set to run into the early days of January, the show has set up shop to entertain Edinburgh throughout the Christmas and Hogmanay period. […]

MacDonald Marine Hotel and Spa, Break

Hairy Times, New Bloggers and Wise Words, Girls and Boys.

And Just Like That, She Was Back…

I know right, I’ve started with that sentence so many times, but dear blog readers, (you lucky (?!) two who stayed with me) I think I am back, I am definitely still dreaming! It’s tentative, but the creative juices are flowing at Casa De Karlie. I’ve been writing a bit, I’ve been thinking a lot, […]

Edinburgh’s Christmas Winter Wonderland

       Ahhhh Christmas, such a lovely time of year. A time so wonderful it will even entice the laziest of bloggers, Moi, out of coupledom and back onto page.

Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival

Me with Mel and Sue. While I am a big lover of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, I found a deeper love this summer in the form of the Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival .
