UP and down to breakfast at the hotel early(-ish!)...Seamus, our driver, is picking us up at 9.45am to take us to the airport.
Seamus also happens to be the director of Belfast Blues Festival and is keen to get me back to play the festival in June. Magic!
Although we flew into Belfast City airport, our return is from Belfast international. Go figure! Anyway, the place is quiet and we’re checked in and through security in no time. The guy at the scanner, though, is a grumpy cunt…and pretty rude. Given the ‘aggression or rudeness to our staff won’t be tolerated’ signs everywhere I find this pretty ironic and Margaret has to persuade me not to post/Tweet/whatever to share my thoughts!
We’re back in Glasgow and on our way to Costco early afternoon. It takes us lounger to get through the roadwork and diversion into St Rollox retail park than it did to get from Belfast to Glasgow!
We grab a late lunch in a crowded Costco, pick up some ore shopping in Tesco then head for home.
After unloading the car and putting the shopping away I chop some wood, get the fire on then head to the studio to dump video footage from the show onto the computer. While the video’s transferring I put away the gear from the trip and tidy up a little.
Back in the house I mix some sourdough dough then prepare black pepper tofu for dinner.
We watch our pal Bill’s monthly livestream from Florida while we eat.
