Tonight really is the night.

Will find out tonight whether my Gare du Nord facade has survived the firing of the glazes.

Will it have cracked?

Or, perhaps worse, what colour will it have ended up?

Too light - not a problem.

Too dark - a very real problem.

I'm hoping to take it home tonight so have prepared a large artist's case filled with bubble wrap.

A reminder of how it was when last I saw it:

2 hours to go and everything will be revealed.

I like books about musicians: their lives and times.

Here are two I've enjoyed recently:

Stuart Murdoch's "Celestial Cafe" really brings Glasgow to life.

Louise Wener paints a vivid picture of an ordinary British teenager ending up in a successful rock band and touring the world.
