Thursday 18 April 2019

OFF to North Shields early for the ferry to Amsterdam. I decide to do a daily videoblog – so see above for how our day went as we drop off gig posters in Glasgow and get the ferry. After I edited the video, though, we spilled red wine on the laptop and I fear...

Wednesday 17 April 2019

LAST day before we head to Belgium and Netherlands, so lots to do. I revisit some of the Creative Scotland funding info, but until I hear back from the other parties involved I cannot do much…and with time at a premium, I cannot afford to put time into something...

Tuesday 16 April 2019

LOTS to do today…but, in typical fashion, a lot of extra stuff comes up. First up, there few Florida venues to follow up for the October trip..and submissions are open for a festival in upstate New York. I get busy. Next, I wanna take some 4G gear to my pal...

Monday 15 April 2019

I’D normally have yoga first thing this morning, but it’s too tight with my physio appointment in Stirling. We get to Stirling in good time tho’ and we’re done with my physio by late bring and into Glasgow with tome to get a couple of things...

Sunday 14 April 2019

The new ‘introduction’ to yours truly video… WE’RE up at a reasonable time as Catriona, Will and Freya need to head off sharp-ish. First, though, I make the breakfast burritos. Haven’t made them in a good while, but these are probably the...

Saturday 13 April 2019

RECORD Store Day. And I didn’t get any promo done yesterday, so first job is to edit up a wee promo for my vinyl that’s available at Love Music in Glasgow. Once its done, posted and shared I make a batch of salsa…Catriona, Will and Freya are coming...

Friday 12 April 2019

I HAVE a PRS members’ fund meeting with a grant holder in Glasgow first thing. On the way into town I decide to park in Bearsden and jump on a train which works nicely. I’m done by midday, get the train. back, pick up the car and some bits and bobs of...

Thursday 11 April 2019

LOOKS like another nice sunshiney day πŸ™‚ Once the routine stuff’s out the way I tackle the online tax return. Thankfully all the login stuff works first time and I’m able to get it all done. Going through some figures with Margaret instigates a scary cash...

Wednesday 10 April 2019

WE’RE off into Glasgow early…eye hospital appointment first thing. The wait’s a bit longer than usual – I’m always surprised when ‘the first appointment’ is often a good hour after schedule. I understand how things come up and some...

Tuesday 9 April 2019

Beautiful evening to do some grillin’… πŸ™‚ THE phone rings just after 5am. It’s Catriona. Thankfully nothing terrible happened/happening, but she’s had sickness and diahorrea all night, Will needs to leave for work at 7am and she needs some help...

Monday 8 April 2019

We go up the lochside to catch the last hour of light…it’s two years since my last ‘introduction to Dave Arcari’ video…time for an update! I’D thought I could get straight on with my tax return this morning, but with some online...

Sunday 7 April 2019

BREAKFAST and a little work are out the way when Martyn arrives to go out for a walk. Been while since we enjoyed one of our Sunday wanders which have been curtailed recently by either or both of us being away of busy…and my plantar fasciitis hasn’t;t...

Saturday 6 April 2019

AFTER breakfast I decide to send an email out to Glasgow area folks letting ’em know about next month’s (May 12) show at the Record Factory. Normally I send out just one eNewsletter a month and it goes to the entire mailing list. I think it’s...

Friday 5 April 2019

Pulled pork tacos – with home-made corn tortillas…. NEEDLESS to say I’m gubbed when the alarm goes off just after 9am…that’s what a 5am shot does to you. After a shower I’m feeling a little more like myself and we sit down with Jon and...

Thursday 4 April 2019

THERE’S some more promo to be done on the Glasgow gig that’s coming up in a few weeks. Once done I head to the studio, clear up and set up for a photoshoot…I’m doing shots of one of the new trustees on the local community trust tomorrow morning...

Wednesday 3 April 2019

We decide to give Eventbrite a try out for ticketing the upcoming Glasgow show… MARGARET’S up with Freya again and Catriona’s off to work just after 8am…Will’s back from nightshift too. I have a shower and go downstairs for breakfast then...

Tuesday 2 April 2019

WE’RE up early – and so is Freya – to let Catriona get off to work. Will gets back in form nightshift and chats a while before heading off to bed. Margaret’s busy with Freya and I get on with some work – but Margaret’s throat and cough are giving her...

Monday 1 April 2019

NOT such a nice day today – grey and damp…and Margaret’s not feeling well. Think she’s picked up whatever Freya had. She phones the doctor, gets an appointment for mid-afternoon and goes back to sleep. I’ve finally managed to migrate everything...

Sunday 31 March 2019

Lovely day to eat outside for Mothers’ Day πŸ™‚ WE’RE up early – the kids are coming for Mothers’ Day later…but Matty is coming early so he can go out for a run first. After breakfast we get busy with some stuff. No Matty tho’…he...

Saturday 30 March 2019

THE ‘kids’ are coming for a family day tomorrow (Sunday). Looks like the weather’s gonna be OK so we’ll have a cookout. We need stuff to make burgers – or pre-made burgers – for the grill and all the accoutrements…and grilling burgers is...
