I have just had the most superb day in Glasgow at The Big Big Sing. I went with my DD and 2 GCs. DH stayed at home as there was much walking to do. Well done Glasgow it was a truly wonderful day.

Glasgow is like marmite. You either love it or hate it.We're going to the Commonwealth Games next week. After loads of experience and family in Glasgow, it'll either be great or **ing it down with rain..

How lovely Crow - my life is singing and I arrange events like this so I know what a joy it can be and how good it is for you - so glad you enjoyed it.

That sounds like a fabulous day out.

I spoke to my DD on Skype last night, she lives in Glasgow and had been out with the family cheering on the Commonwealth marathon runners. She was so proud of the way the city is hosting the games, 'the buzz was incredible' in her words.

I'm sorry to be missing the whole thing, sods's law that I'm away.

It really is buzzing Baubles. We took our GDs into the City Centre yesterday. The atmosphere was wonderful. Very proud of my native City as it ensures the tradition of the Friendly Games continues.

I think us GNers should start teaching youngsters the words to our "National Anthems". The Scottish seem better than the English at singing during the medal ceremonies.
We sang "Jerusalem" at least once a week at school, but nowadays they don't even know "God Save the Queen" sad
