About Me


All you need to know about me and Realweegiemidget Reviews!


Not a me, me, me kinda person so a short and sweet version of it all.


About Me


Wee (about 5ft) Scottish lass, married just over seven years (at time of update) – but together for a lot longer – to much taller, not much younger, English husband and living in Finland. My 2 occasional Star Wars film loving stepdudes –  the supertall older stepson and his not so “wee” brother – invade every second weekend.

Then we speak Finglish and eat anything but Finnish food in Little Britain, aka the kids’ one time nickname for our home. I will be gittering on – ie talking about – about entertainment with tales about Finland, Scotland, expat stepmum life, films, music, television programmes, books, Dallas (the original series), mental health and other random topics. Often with a wee comment provided by my sofa companion, and this my Darlin Husband…

Speaking of random topics, credit where credit is due, my Gravatar and WordPress blog icon is from Shannon McGee and can be found on Flickr here, it has not been altered. This picture is also found on my blog promotion sites on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. It’s called Movie Night W/Cina and it’s just purrfect (pun intended).

Realweegiemidget translates as “real little Glaswegian”. This Scottish phrase kinda sums me up really. I’ve been square-eyed – a phrase for a non-stop telly watcher from my Gran – and obsessed with filums (as I used to pronounce this word) and TV since I was really wee. My mother used to find my head underneath the covers, watching my filums.

In the 1980s, I got obsessed with Dallas (the original series), after JR got shot and this moment and the rest are probably mentioned here in every film and TV show I review… Speaking of reviews, I’ve added a trailer for everything I review from YouTube so you can get the full cinematic experience.

If you click on those blue film and telly titles you will get to another review written by my fair hand.  Also, this is a wee explanation about how my ratings work HERE. Anyway, I’d like to say a big thank you for reading and possibly following this blog. I would love to read any feedback, comments and review suggestions you have. Also if you want me to review your book, film or TV show or even be interviewed contact me HERE.

And finally a superhuge thanks to my Darlin Husband for being my sometimes editor – and main supporter and live commenter – when writing this blog.  I would like to point out he is Darlin without the G, and it’s not as a reference to those forum sites that talk about the DH. Also, a huge thanks to my mum for her support, for editing the romantic musical sequel with Pierce Brosnan and for ensuring I add an eye candy rating when applicable…

Darlin Husband is however a homage to the great, late Larry Hagman who – on being cast as the man you love to hate, J.R. Ewing in Dallas – was called Darlin’ by Linda Gray – who was to be cast as his wife Sue Ellen  – on meeting her on their first day on the Dallas (1978-91) set. And Sue Ellen was inspiring to me as a kid, as you will discover…

Anyway, Darlin, thank you for helping me with understanding all the computer stuff (such as knowing that Stats is not a motivational pop-up of a shirtless Jason Statham when you finish a blog entry.. but it so should be). Also for your riffing, your random film facts, for providing the tissues when I sob, for stopping me from getting irritated and turning green at times and for not minding getting your hand squeezed when I get scared. I love you now, today, always and tomorrow and you will always be my no 1 eye candy (sorry to Helmut Berger and Alain Delon, who are joint 2nd at the time of writing).

PS If you REALLY must know what I look like… here is me and the late actor, David Warner. He was the dapper silver-haired actor and gent with a wicked sense of humour (and more about when I met him, HERE.)

  1. I skip ahead when I read, it is a horrid habit that ruins everything, but I skipped to the end ish of this and read STAT Jason Statham shirtless and thought that you had a feature like, comment and see a hot pic of Jason pop-up? I re-read it and sadly, no, but continued to read closely… 😉 great blog, I dig it!
