Happily Ever After
Life in The Rural Retreat with a beautiful wife, three cats, garden wildlife, a camera, a computer – and increasing amounts about running

There must be lots of money in Glasgow. Yesterday I received an alert from the Hydro, announcing that tickets for an exhibition match between Andy Murray and Roger Federer were about to go on sale. By the time I’d tracked down Matchgirl, who expressed interest, all the tickets appeared to have gone.
This was probably just as well. The cheap seats, where we sat to see Strictly Live, were only £28 – probably because from there you'd be unable to see the ball; the best seats were £170, for which I’d expect supper with Andy and Roger after the match plus a signed racquet.
Tickets to see Omid Djalili in Inverness in two weeks time were much more reasonably priced, and in seats where we wouldn’t need to watch everything on a screen. So that’s another addition to The Year of Entertainment.
And tonight City Limits is back in action in the first date of a two-night stand at Johnny Foxes – our first gig for a month. Expect some rusty musicianship all round.
