What a mental week.. I had the pleasure of seeing Nickelback live in the O2 Arena in London on Monday which was absolutely fantastic! Mrs Scot and I also went to watch a movie called ‘The Room’ in central London this week, which is widely renowned as being the worst movie ever made. There was a crazy cult following who knew all the words and threw plastic spoons at the screen and chanted weird phrases… was absolutely bizarre! If you want to know more here is the YouTube trailer.
On the blogging front, it has been another busy week. I have been commenting on lots of my favourite blogs this week. I would like to give a special mention/thanks to my friend Drew over at Objective Wealth who wrote a post on SavvyScot.com – The BlogNod of the month for October. If anyone else likes reading PF from a UK perspective, then I recommend you adding OW to your feeds!
The Razorpit Giveaway started this week: I am pleased to announce that I am giving away 3 Razorpit devices which allow you to clean, sharpen and reuse your razorblades – saving a small fortune! You still have a little over a week to enter.
The most popular post at SavvyScot this week was Change Your Life Series – Step 1 Exercise. Great to see lots of fellow bloggers joining in with the Change Your Life Series!
