…. and I am pleased to say that I chose the quick route. Currently, if I was driving, it would apparently take me 6 hours and 20 minutes. No thank you!
Instead, I am sitting people watching at Bristol Airport awaiting my short hop via aeroplane. Only the second time I have ever crossed the border I think and my first ever visit to Glasgow. Exciting….
Tomorrow is the first day of the Who Do You Think You Are? Live Show at the SECC and I am delighted to be lecturing on Women at War in Scotland Theatre 1. Sadly, the event has been cut short and is now only running on Friday and Saturday so my second lecture will not be aired on Sunday – well I guess it could be, but to my empty hotel room! The highlight of the weekend will be catching up with lots of current ‘genie-friends’ – fellow family, local and social historians from across the globe – and meeting many new faces who, to date, I have only be in touch with via social networks.
Looking forward to boarding the plane and joining you all up there in Bonny Scotland for the weekend. See you soon!
