I am in our Dundee office today trying to catch-up on a few tasks before the Scottish Learning Festival. It's a beautiful clear day here with blue skies and the River Tay shimmering to a warm gentle breeze as my only distraction... well apart from email, the phone and a to do list that keeps getting longer as the day progresses. Tomorrow afternoon, in the LTS Glasgow office, I am going to be saying a few words at a presentation for Ewan McIntosh. [Ooops - just checked my diary and it has been postponed.] .
