MARGARET drives to the village after breakfast to get stuff to make lunch for some pals passing by later…I get busy with my accounts in the office. Looks like my PRS royalties this quarter could save our (financial) ass. When Margaret’s back I accompany...

WE’RE off to the BBC’s Quay Sessions this evening, so both of us go into Glasgow early. I drop Margaret off then go for coffee and spend an few hours on the local community trust website before parking up at the People’s Palace and wandering into...

NEEDLESS to say we’re starving when we wake up – a two blueberry muffins and a large dram was no substitute for dinner – especially at 1.30am after spending the evening in the hotel bar! Premier Inn breakfast is good, but we don’t have too much time to...

ANOTHER early start into Glasgow. I drop Margaret off then take the car back to the garage in Maryhill. They need their electrical guy to reset the service interval thingy and our heater’s been playing funny buggers, so he’ll have a look at that too. I...
