    There are so many fantastic Gaelic speaking actors and actresses in Scotland. If a production wants Gaelic as part of their film / series / program, why on earth can they not use local talent rather than try to teach pigeon / token Gaelic and ultimately get it wrong? #Gàidhlig
    It’s 10am, no one else in the house is up yet and I’m eating chocolate for breakfast while reading Margaret Bennett’s new ‘From the Cradle to the Grave’ book. Boxing Day win!

    Lovely afternoon at @WHC_UHI graduation this afternoon, seeing all students graduate, especially our @WHC_Music students. Fantastic, perfectly pitched speech by @KateForbesMSP and moving & celebratory performances by NC / HNC Music students and our Rockschool pupils! #moiteil
    An amazing thing for this young girl to do. We don’t speak enough about periods - what is normal and what isn’t - as a result there’s a real lack of understanding, leading many women to suffer in silence, or simply feel too embarrassed to speak out or ask for help.#endometriosis…

    Went to @VodafoneUK Inverness today for help with an account / discontinued handsets which are now dying. Rude, unhelpful service, obviously wished he was somewhere else. Would have bought new handsets but came away with nothing. Not one helpful answer or attempt to be polite.
