The ‘bubble mat’ from Amazon seems pretty good value – a quarter of the price of similar from office suppliers. Click the pick to find out more.

OFF into Glasgow early.

I drop Margaret off and hit McDonalds…breakfast bagel, coffee and free wifi. I’m there for three hours uploading video, blogging and working on some new Google search tools to find out how to get more organic search and visibility for gigs.

Next I drop off posters and flyers for the upcoming Glasgow show on Saturday 3 March. First stop is the venue – The Hug & Pint – then I go into town, park up and drop into Love Music before dropping more off at the Scottish Music Centre.

Shopping is next on the list. Chung Ying, See Woo then Costco where I wait 20-minutes in a queue of just six folks for a hotdog.

Some more shopping, then i pick up Margaret and we drive to Braehead where we have an appointment with the kitchen folks. We’ve been before, but only did a basic layout. Subsequent visits to Magnet threw up some great ideas, but we just can’t afford their prices. Ikea will likely come in around half the price!

Margaret’s not convinced tho’ and we’re going round in circles with ideas, costs and solutions.

It’s after 9pm when we get home. The anti-fatigue mat I ordered form Amazon has arrived. I’m pleasantly surprised how good it is given that it was twenty-odd quid as opposed to over £100 for the equivalent from office suppliers. While I;m loving the improvised standing desk, my feet were getting sore…hopefully this mat will help.
