I’M about to leave for Glasgow when a music industry pal calls to discuss some USA licencing stuff.

When I try and transfer the call to the car’s bluetooth system it won’t work so I say cheerio and get on my way…until the road’s closed with no advance warning. I make a detour through Balloch, stopping at Aldi to pick up some coffee pods for the Nespresso….they’re the best ‘compatible’ pods.

In Glasgow I park at Waitrose in the west end, walk down to the Money Shop to change some Euros, hit the bank then make my way to Costco for some shopping.

Then Tesco, Chung Ying and a dash to the studio where I;m meeting one of my MusicPlus students for a mentoring session.

I’m home soon after 5pm and realise that with all the rushing around I’d totally forgotten about the mincer I ordered to ‘click and collect’ from Lakeland. Shit! I call and cancel and re-order for Margaret to pick up in Stirling later in the week. Doh!

There’s some work to be done and I accompany Margaret on the first re-run on her ‘couch to 5k’ mission then we go along to Betty and Joe’s for some dinner and a blether.
