Welcome to a new feature of the Yellow Bird Digital blog. While we like to mix it up on the blog in terms of our content, these monthly posts will focus more on the fun, than our usual informative and educational blogs (which we’ll still be doing).

We’ll be sharing what’s on for the Yellow Birders socially, showcasing what’s going on in and around Glasgow, Stirling and beyond! We hope you enjoy it, and if anything, find something that takes your interest.

As we enter the second half of the year (we can’t believe it either), when we’re not working we’re hoping to make the most of the glorious weather we’ve been having. Albeit when our complexions can handle it. Failing that we’ve got plenty to keep us busy this July.

  1. Order on Court – Wimbledon

From our days bashing a tennis ball off the school walls during the summer holidays, we always rejoice when Wimbledon comes around. Pimm’s, strawberries and cream, rooting for big Andy, it’s not quite July if you haven’t got totally hooked watching even one game. We’ll also be joining our clients 55 Bar & Grill in Bearsden for their Wimbledon themed party on Sunday 15th July.

  1. A Mexican Fiesta at Six by Nico

Avid fans of Six by Nico and their ethos from the beginning, we can’t wait to try the new ‘story’. Changing their six-course tasting menu every six weeks to a specific concept, we’re especially excited for cooking ‘Mexico’, running until 5th August. We’re drooling already looking at the menu.

  1. Rip it Up – Edinburgh

While we’re Glasgow girls at heart we do love venturing to the capital city for a change of scenery, especially during the summer months when festival season begins to kick off. If you’re a music lover head to Rip it Up at National Museums Scotland. Focusing on the story of Scottish pop from the 1950s to today, Lindsay will be in her element if there is anything to do with Deacon Blue. Expect stage outfits, instruments, pop merchandise (like that gig t-shirt and programme you pestered your mum & dad for money for), props, films and of course, music! Just launched you’ve got plenty of time to see it with Rip it Up with it running until 22nd November.

  1. Getting mucky for a good cause – The Lanrick Challenge

While not technically until the 4th of August, we’re both in training for The Lanrick Challenge. Never heard of it before? Imagine a less commercial Tough Mudder, and more swamps! Based on the Lanrick estate, it’s a 12k wilderness and obstacle charity event. They support two fantastic charities – The Sandpiper Trust and The Scottish Charity Air Ambulance. With over a month to go, we’re putting in the miles and practicing our monkey bars!

  1. Time to indulge – in a staycation

We’re not heading off anywhere exotic, summer is a great time to recharge the batteries and explore. While Nicola recently tried her hand at camping (not for her), Lindsay is making the most of their parents’ caravan to explore lots of local Scottish towns – with Crieff, Moffat, Oban, Dunbar visited so far over the past years and Jedburgh on the list next. Caravan or not, small visits to nearby towns even for a day are a great chance to discover their history, shop local and boost the Scottish economy. As cliché as it may sound, but if you’re not going away anytime soon you just might find there’s plenty to do on your doorstep.

To a bright and yellow month ahead.

Nicola & Lindsay
