CATRIONA, Will and Freya head off early, Margaret goes into Glasgow and suddenly the house is very quiet.

Nice preview for tomorrow’s show in the Northern Echo – click the image to see full size…

After getting the usual start of day jobs out the way I find a nice preview for tomorrow’s (Saturday) show in the Northern Echo.

Then it’s onto the USA tour stuff. Lots of admin, promo ideas and poster art…I make a bit of dent in it over the course of the day, stopping for a break to make tonight’s pork, chorizo and butter bean stew.

By the time I accompany Margaret on her couch to 5k run the weather’s settled down and it’s a nice evening.

When we get back I hit the studio and run through some of my set for tomorrow’s show then get the gear ready for a quick getaway in the morning.
