A friend from Ireland (ironically, whom I never met until Latvia, despite having a multitude of connections) was over visiting for the weekend. Friday we chilled out, had some coffee at my office, wandered round uni and the Hunterian Museum. The Hunterian is great, has some beautiful architecture. Was the first time I’d been in since it reopened.
Caught a gig in the evening: We went to the Tron to see the Fortunate Sons, who were energetic as ever, supported by Ben Sturrock, who was brilliant. First time I’ve ever heard Bens stuff, and I plan to go back for his album launch at the Tron on the 23rd Nov.
On Saturday we had brunch at Cafe Francais on Byres Road. Wow… posh. We had fun! Spent the afternoon wandering around Kelvingrove Museum and watching a DVD at the flat, before having a Latvia dinner (all the guys on team together!). Headed to the pub to catch some friends after dinner.
Sunday was church, lunch at Curlers… and randomly seeing lots of old Ballymena Academy folks! A couple of friends where visiting a friend who’s just started in Glasgow. Quite weird to be sitting around a table in the pub in Glasgow with 4 other Academy folks. Saw Atonement at the cinema on Sunday night… I don’t recommend it. ‘Nuff said!
Had another lazy day on Monday just hanging out with Jill before she left. Watched a DVD. Went to Tinderbox. (Think Jill’s getting the idea… we drink lots of coffee…) Explored the West End.
Reuben and I headed out to his grannys for the evening… wonderful evening. She’s great. We had fun!
That’ll do for now!
