Good luck with the plot Bea. It looks like you have inherited something really good. I have had one in Norwich for 15 years now. Hard work but rewarding.

Glasgow is ideal for psychogeography. You’ll be wandering around gazing at derelict buildings or graffiti under flyovers, saying to yourself “What is the meaning of these strange hieroglyphs? Is rune related to ruin?” & a guy, cycling past with no top on, will shout “Fannybaws!”
