ANOTHER beautiful day so I move the laptop out the office and set up my workstation in the garden.

I need to get a start on the PR/media stuff for the USA tour so start putting together news releases. First up is the ‘signature guitar’ launch show in California. I also need to research local and regional newspapers/journalists/blogs/radio folks etc. I’ve already managed to set up a radio interview but we need to hit a lot more places.

After lunch I hit the studio and familiarise myself a little more with the second Christmas song. Weird doing this in blazing sunshine so far away from Christmas!

There’s still some songs needing rehearsed for the weekend’s Homesong concerts then I sort the gear ready for packing the car tomorrow morning.

Early evening we wander along the lochside to Betty and Joe’s for dinner where we have a grand night with our hosts, Willie and Sandy. Its midnight before we’re home.
