Xmas shopping at lunchtime, one item only (my method was the same last year and seemed to work quite well). Ohh and I’ll pop into Virgin and get a photo of a book for Caroline. Off to sharpen my elbows.

Stereophonics: SECC

Reading time: < 1 min

New Glasgow bridge chosen. I wonder if any of the panel who chose this design will actually use it, especially as they chose the one which looks like you’ll have to walk twice as far to cross the river! No-one I know liked that one… just who did they consult?!!
