Saturday 8 October, 2005

My day so far has been thus:

11.00am – wake up, have shower, get dressed.
12.00pm – make humungous bacon and egg roll for lunch.
2.00pm – go to the supermarket to buy Irn Bru and a new toothbrush (rather like buying whisky and Ibuprofen together, I know).
3.00pm – listen to the first half of Scotland v Belarus.
3.45pm – nip to the barbers, find it’s shut early. Come back.
4.00pm – listen to second half.

The rest of the day will consist of eating, then meeting a couple of friends for a pint or two.

I love Saturdays.

I was reading the first few chapters of Kevin MacNeil’s “The Stornoway Way” last night – in which the narrating character muses that if we are created in God’s image, then surely we have been created to be creative. A wonderful philosophy, and something I will aspire to be in life… just not on a Saturday.

Apart from the bacon and egg roll – that was a work of art.
