Why I chose the commuter life – VW Polo 1.2 R Line.

In Lifestyle by thatmckLeave a Comment

Over the last few years the commuter life has started to take it’s toll. At first travelling in and out of Edinburgh 5 days a week isn’t all that bad. It is a twenty-minute journey by train after all. But that is on a good day. Isn’t that right Scotrail? The initial plan from the start of the year was …

Wandering in the Woods – Shot on Instax 200.

In Lifestyle, Photography by thatmck5 Comments

Sometimes even the most uninteresting days are special, like days spent wandering in the woods. The weather in Scotland has been uncharacteristically amazing the last few weeks. Cloudy, showery days are long gone, replaced solely by the sun steadily roaming across the cloud free sky. These sunny days have left myself and Katy not knowing what to do with ourselves. …

Down To The Last Drop – Drygate Brewing Co.

In Lifestyle by thatmckLeave a Comment

I am not a beer person. Sure I like Beer, like most people. But I have never really ventured past the typical Stella, Tennents and Budweiser. You know the common household names. That is the stuff I was brought up on and that is the stuff I have stuck to. If you were to go into my local and asked …

In Lifestyle by thatmckLeave a Comment

What happened, where has the time gone? As usual the start of the year is flying in and before we know it we will be in the warm sunny summer months. Where we take the little things for granted, like not wearing a jacket when you leave the house, you know that sort of thing. After a solid month of …

In Lifestyle, Photography by thatmck1 Comment

Fashion design is not normally my cup of tea, but when your girlfriend is a textiles student you make it your cup of tea. Okay that might be a slight exaggeration but when I was asked if I wanted to go the “Hello, My Name is Paul Smith Exhibition” I was a bit lost for words, I think my reaction …

What’s to come in 2016 for thatmck.

In Lifestyle by thatmckLeave a Comment

When I started this blog back in 2014, every so often I would sit down and just write. I would just speak about what is going on in my life, speak about what mattered and I feel it is only right to bring that aspect back. I don’t want this to become some faceless blog, with no emotion and shying …

Date Night – Hillhead Bookclub, Glasgow.

In Food, Lifestyle by thatmckLeave a Comment

Last week, to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday I thought it would only be right to treat her to dinner and drinks. Hillhead Bookclub in the West End of Glasgow was the bar/restaurant of choice. If I was a true gentleman I should have probably let her pick where she wanted to go but I know if I had done that …

In Lifestyle by thatmck4 Comments

I have been getting tattooed since I was 18. Ever since then, as I have been adding more and more pieces to my body I seem to get asked the same questions over and over again. Because of that I thought it would be a good idea to compile the three most asked questions that I get about my tattoos. …
