In 1975, aged 17, I sailed off to Glasgow University from my council house, in a steelworkers town, maximum grant, fees paid, part-time job in Woolworths, no burden on my parents, with a spring in my step, in glorious technicolour. Utterly wretched my arse.

@istolethecookie @AlanFraser7 After nearly 50 years of lost wallets (stopped using them it was so bad, then lost wage packet out of my back pocket) I can't tell you how many times it has come back to me, maybe more than 75%! People, random, ordinary people, are very good at heart.

A couple of months after Edwyn fell ill, he listened to music for the first time and broke down in floods of tears. This. So, I love Ringo. via @YouTube

@RevRichardColes At the end of this ridiculous week, we all needed this restorative reminder of the inherent goodness in a human being. A gentleman of the top drawer category.

Worth turning off the A9 to explore in more detail: Helmsdale on the east coast of Sutherland, seen across the River Helmsdale. The village's origins date back at least as far as the Vikings, who established a settlement here. More pics and info:

The instant experts of Twitter reminded me of our pal who came to see @EdwynCollins in hospital and had learned neuroscience on the internet in two weeks. Edwyn couldn’t talk but his eyebrows were going up and down. Knew then we’d be fine.

Edwyn Collins is lost in this programme. He's so excited it's back. Geniuses fixing old things up, meticulously. They're so happy at work, it makes him really emotional. He knows a number of people who work like this.
