Although I had to blackmail my wife to go... we went to the Burrell Collection museum in Glasgow and thoroughly enjoyed it. Some amazing stuff in there, especially the Chinese pottery and the Persian rugs. Rodin's Thinker is such a cool piece of sculpture and the Degas paintings are special too.

After that we went to the Brewers Fayre in Springfield Quay... NEVER AGAIN!!! Had to wait 55mins for our starter then another 20mins for lukewarm food. Even the waiter, when challenged by another table about lack of choice, recommended Burger King. If my wife wasn't with me, it would have been the worst hour and a bit of my life.

We then went to the Vue cinema to see "Wallace and Grommit - The curse of the were-rabbit" BRILLIANT!!! It is such a funny film and is very inventive. It works in the same way as the Simpsons or Futurama in that it appeals to kids and adults on different levels. Very, very good... in fact, you forget you are watching a pasticine animation - it becomes a cartoon. Grommit is the star, by far...
