MARGARET drops me at the station in Milngavie at 8am…and I jump a train into the centre of town.
First stop is McDonalds for breakfast and wifi where I spend an hour or so catching up on emails and socials etc.
Next, I hit Central Station to ‘retrieve’ our train tickets to London for the blues wards next month. Despite having the booking reference and my credit card, the machine won’t give me them…says my card isn’t the card the tickets were booked with. Granted, Margaret did the booking but it’s a joint credit card..must be some difference in the cards that I’m unaware of. Gonna have to wait for the time being.
I drop into see Sandy and Manny at Love Music, then wander up to the opening of the new Assai Records’ shop on Sauchiehall Street.
The PRS (Performing Rights Society) event at the city halls doesn’t start ’til 2pm so I stop off for some ramen at Wagamama. Over-priced and extremely disappointing. Lesson learned – I’ll stick to Mikaku on Queen Street ar Ramen Dayo in the West End.
The PRS event is good and it’s nice to catch up with folks…then Margaret picks me up and we head for home.
I have a radio phoner interview on the Letty Rock Show (KFM107fm) out of Kirkcaldy ahead of my show in the town on Friday..then I make some arancini for dinner with the left over mushroom risotto from last night.
