This is for Everybody, Everywear, where the theme this month is polka dots. I decided to mix two dotted things and add the polka dot coat for good measure. And then for some reason I started singing ‘a polka dot, a polka dot, a mini mini mini and a polka dot’ to that kiddies tune whose name escapes me at the moment (it usually goes a pizza hut, a KFC and a burger king, or a mini, a ford escort and a ferrari). What is that song called? I am silly!

In case you are wondering about the photo location, I did a very blogger thing yesterday and found an outside location other than my back garden for taking pictures. I walked for 10 minutes to get there, dedication! I had come across this building while out for a run, as I’ve recently taken up running to give me some exercise while my writs is wrong and I can’t do yoga.
I love this building! It’s an office building built out of the remains of an old brick warehouse. I am partial to brick buildings, and funnily enough they are quite a rarity here in Scotland, where traditionally all domestic building was done in stone, or that grey pebble dash stuff called harling. Brick was only really used for huge buildings like warehouses and factories and such. There are a few brick buildings near me in a state of disrepair, which makes me sad, and I am glad this one was converted sensibly into something useful.
Sadly I had neglected to check my camera battery and it dies before I was able to take more pictures of the other sides of the building. I did get some mobile phone snaps though:
The back facade:
The side. wonder why all the paint was there!
The stone front facade. That half of the building stands empty. There are signs on it advertising new built flats for sale but the recession obviously put a stop to that since its been like that for the three years we have lived in that area.
