Sitting in the Armadillo waiting for Jools Holland. We’ve just seen the intro act, Mark Flanagan playing guitar and singing – and very good he was too.
Amazed at the number of people who wander in late to these events. Maybe we’re out of touch, but it’s really annoying. Quite sad too that there are so many incontinents having to take toilet breaks every 15 minutes. Let’s hope the zimmers are now parked, the crutches stacked and the incontinence pads wrung out and that Jools can continue uninterrupted.
Jools and his orchestra were brilliant. Just as I expected them to be. I think Scamp is ready to sign up for tickets for next year’s show DV. Special guests were KT Tunstall and Ruby Turner. Both gave of their best and had us dancing in our seats. Yes, really. Amazing night.
Got the train back to Glasgow Central without a problem and then walked up Bucky Street, past the rubber men and the lady stilt walkers teetering on their incredibly high heels “How can they walk in those shoes?“. Both groups struggling against (one last time, surely Storm Desmond)
The drive back along the M80 was interesting with gale force winds and heavy driving rain. However, we’re home now. Let’s see what tomorrow brings. Hopefully this is bye bye Desmond.
