Goodies, Wullies and Nuptials

This is my last post as a single man! You may have noticed that my posts have lessened over the past wee while. That is because we are in the middle of wedding preparations at the moment.

Disneyboi and I are to be wed, next week in Toronto. We jet off at the end of this week and spend a couple of weeks there. The wedding itself will be just a small affair with Disneyboi’s cousin and his wife as witnesses.

Expect lots of photographs on social media whilst I am away and lots when I return in the form of blog posts!

However, in the meantime I have been sent another selection of goodies from Degustabox to sample. Usually I go over each item individually to let you see what you will get in the latest box, but as I should be packing right now, here is a photo of the contents which includes borlotti beans, jellies, bread crisps, fizzy juices, popcorn thins and more!

Remember if you want to sign up to Degustabox, you can get an exclusive discount using code BLDEG15 worth a huge £7 off your first box. Pop over to the Degustabox website for more information.

Lastly, as you may know, I love cartoons. As a wee boy, I loved watching them on TV and reading comic strips. And as I am from the Dundee area, the biggest cartoon characters on my radar included DC Thomson’s The Broons and Oor Wullie who appeared (and still do appear) in the Sunday Post newspaper each week. I used to get the annuals at Christmas too and devoured them between Christmas day and the night before going back to school.

Recently Dundee had an ‘Oor Wullie Bucket Trail’ where well over 50 statues of Our Wullie on his famous bucket were decorated in various guises and dotted around Dundee and the surrounding area. This was great fun over the summer, looking out for Wullies, all in aid of the Archie Foundation children’s charity, helping sick kids in the north of Scotland. The Oor Wullies were then auctioned off after the Bucket Trail had finished and made a whopping £883,000 for the charity.

We were lucky enough to get tickets to go and visit the Oor Wullies which had been gathered together as a final gathering before being sold off. Below are a select few of my favourite Wullies for you to enjoy. Pop to the official Bucket Trail website to see the full array.

Here’s hoping DC Thomson’s do another character from their publications. Perhaps Dennis the Menace from the Beano or Bananaman. How good would that be?

That’s it for now folks. Catch you when I am back from our holibobs, as a married man! Maybe catch you over on my Twitter, Facebook or Instagram accounts if you are around. See you soon.
