Like many of my colleagues I am feeling the pace. I confess to feeling a bit burnt out and I need a break to recharge my batteries and do some thinking on a range of matters important to the Independence cause. I also need to devote more time to my family, particularly my granddaughter who I love deeply and I want to be the best grandpa during her school holidays.
I will however not be disappearing entirely. The important series by Professor Alf Baird will be published each Sunday as normal as I know many readers are enjoying and learning from these excellent articles. I will also publish the odd article, probably one a week as well. Just to keep my hand in!
I am also awaiting some important guest articles that should appear soon and I will of course publish them as they are received.
So it’s not a long goodbye, more a I will see you soon. I anticipate this partial absence lasting to the end of August.
Let’s hope the good weather continues and we can all enjoy a good summer after all those forced months of restricted activities.
I am, as always
Yours for Scotland
