Mucking About

4 Oct

My friend Jack Scott writes an hilarious blog “Perking the Pansies “. He and his husband Liam escaped the hustle and bustle life of London in 2011 for the expat world in Turkey. What followed are no less than five eye rolling, belly laughing books and a whole new career.

I remember the first time Jack commented on the Dos Tortas blog. I was thrilled to have my first celeb and REAL author comment on the blog. His Saturday posts always give my weekend a chuckle which is especially appreciated these days. I’ve also added some British slang to my vocabulary which feels worldly and helps me translate the movies and TV shows he recommends. This week, it’s muck, as in mucking about. Translated into Spanish, perder el tiempo, or waste time.

Thank you Jack, we can all use a bit of mucking about in our weekend.

      Love your sense of humor. We’ve pulled up All Things Great and Small. They’ve done a good job but makes me miss the old characters. 😪
