We commend Glasgow Holiday Inn Theatreland breakfasts! After an unscheduled gathering of pyjama-clad hotel guests on the pavement outside the hotel this morning (the fire alarms work and so does the evacuation of the building). This was followed by Jake having a nosebleed. So, pleased to report that the status quo was returned by toast, bacon and mushrooms!
We headed off to Hampden Park early enough, over the Clyde on a very splendid pedestrian suspension bridge and then somewhat higgledy piggeldy to Hampden Park. Note to Glasgow City Council (need more signage for Hampden Park - not everyone has Sat Nav.)
Two lovely ladies on reception introduced us to Alex Hall who was our brilliant guide for the morning.

Whilst at Hampden Park we got a telephone call from Rob Ross at Bannerman High School inviting us over to meet some of the current pupils as well as some of next year's intake visiting the school on an induction day.
This was the second appointment of the day where we arrived bang on time! Let's hope this is a precedent we can live up to - don't hold your breath!
Rob Ross was a great host and Jake really enjoyed meeting the pupils. We had the opportunity to meet a wide range of future talents in psychology, architecture, games programming, midwifery and tattoo art to name but a few. Jake also found a bike buddy in Ben. Ben really enjoys his mountain biking and so it was a great connection.
