It was so good to see so a lot of you at Lewis Capaldi’s gig on the P&J Reside in Aberdeen.

The record-breaking gig acquired a tremendous response from the native viewers who sang together with all his hits, laughed in any respect his hilarious banter and screamed for him to come back again for an encore.

Apparently, this gig broke information for being the “highest promoting indoor present in Scotland’s historical past” and to listen to the roar of the group I can fairly consider it.

Since then, we have now been again within the tour bus travelling the size of the nation and we are actually in Belfast.

The advantage of touring around the UK is that I attempt to meet up with pals I haven’t seen.

My buddy Mandy got here to the Hydro in Glasgow and frolicked together with the stage with me.

It was like a woman’s night time out as a result of Mandy and I used to hang around together with the stage at Deacon Blue gigs once we have been college students in Glasgow about 35 years in the past so we have been in actual fact re-living our youth!

In our little touring bubble it’s straightforward to neglect what day it’s and to utterly miss out on the information tales happening in the actual world.

Work/life stability

So, assembly up with family and friends type of retains me sane. That and the truth that the folks I work with are all pretty. That work/life stability is a lot simpler to take care of in case you are hanging out with good folks.

We’re all conscious that generally one in all us would possibly want a little bit of area or a little bit of firm and naturally I’m a center aged lady on a tour bus with a gaggle of twentysomething guys. Me doing my knitting whereas they play on the PlayStation is what is commonly occurring.

One factor we do on the tour bus is to observe movies and as that’s one thing I so hardly ever do at house, I’ve an enormous listing to compensate for.

Whereas I’m away, Gordon has been getting used to his new job and had his first flight as BA cabin crew with a return journey to Stockholm.

He was so blissful afterwards as a result of he remembered every part he had been taught and it went effectively.

Seashore run

I haven’t seen him in his uniform in particular person but, so I’m wanting ahead to that once I get house finally. I can’t consider that in a few days he has to fly to Barbados. He stays there for twenty-four hours then flies again.

I feel I’d in all probability discover that fairly exhausting however not Gordon after all. He’s completely excited on the prospect of waking up and going for a run on the seaside and absorbing the tropical sunshine for a day.

I have to say that whereas on a bus and a ferry to Belfast I used to be questioning whose job I’d somewhat have this week!

One little bit of world information it will have been laborious to not discover this week, was the resignation of New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

After all, as with all politicians, folks had differing views on her management.


I nonetheless was one in all tens of millions who discovered her to be a very inspirational lady.

Her potential to steer from the highest in a disaster, solid shade on many different leaders world wide, particularly with the way in which she calmly handed the pandemic. Though many individuals would have mentioned her restrictions ended up being too strict for too lengthy.

She was decisive, authoritative however all the time appeared to care passionately.

Her dealing with of the horrendous Christchurch terror assault was additionally a defining second in her management as her humanity, one thing usually seemingly missing in different politicians, shone via.

When she introduced her resignation this was additionally achieved with an honesty so hardly ever seen.

She mentioned she didn’t have “sufficient left within the tank”.

Quitting on the proper time somewhat than holding on when you might be not going to do job is once more a lesson to study for all of us.

Jacinda Ardern desires to now focus on being a backbench MP and extra importantly to be a sister and a mum.

Burns Evening

All of us need to have all of it however generally it’s essential to know when sufficient is sufficient.

I hope you all loved Burns Evening by the way in which!

I managed to have some haggis, neeps and tatties earlier than we left Glasgow.

After my daunting expertise of doing the Deal with to the Haggis final yr it was so good simply to benefit from the meals.

Have week,
