Hi again, folks!
Just a couple of days to go and I have to tell you - I'm feeling a bit nervous! I can't wait to meet everyone and collect lots of letters. It's just that it's been a long time since I went touring and life's a lot different now than it was back then. Still, I've had so much encouragement from so many people, that I know I must be doing something right.
I seemed to be in front of a camera or behind a microphone for most of today - just hope I said all the right things. I'll be on Radio Scotland this Sunday morning at 7.05am (so set your alarm clock), talking to Sally Magnusson. Then I'll be Radio Scotland again on Monday morning for Good Morning Scotland. Then I'll be on BBC's Reporting Scotland and STV's Scotland Today on Monday night. You'll not miss me on Monday, that's for sure!
Anyway, here's a quick update of where I'll be and what I'll be doing 6-10 June.
