Lesley arrives hotfoot from a literary Dundee and a wind blasted London. In Dundee, she meets the family that reads together and has an AL Kennedy moment.

In London, she had been taking part in a debate at the Institute for Government. Her verdict; a different type of question and questioner.  

And, what about energy? Is there anything new to say? Well, you can always rely on Dundee to delight. And so it does, with tales of community energy.

Fresh from an appearance on ‘Any Question’ on BBC Radio 4 from Rothbury, Lesley still has points and observations to make about her fellow panellists. Energy came up as a topic and Lesley has more to say on the subject in response to David Willetts’ assertions. Lesley also reveals what local people said to her following the recording and the audience’s surprising reaction to the Scottish independence debate.

She also had occasion to use a machine in London which would not take Scottish notes. The resulting twitterstrom threw up some interesting points.

Lesley also managed to have an eventful time at the SNP Conference in Perth and has a tale to tell.

And, on the road with ‘Blossom’, there was a very interesting meeting at the Centre for Human Ecology which prompted lots of questions. Some of which we discuss.

This week Lesley talks about giving the keynote at the Moray College graduation ceremony and gets a good view of the local issues which are niggling folks in Moray. It’s libraries mainly. And how does that link back to being a guest speaker at the Yes group in Moray? And is ‘Vaping’ real smoking or not?

Finally, guess what Lesley thinks about ‘Sunshine On Leith’. This week’s podcast contains all the answers.

Scotland Women's Football team put 7 past Bosnia but it's Tam Cowan's comments that make the news. Equally, Lesley visits  the Wigtown Book Festival and finds as ever; feisty conversations, women who lend watches and a whole different spin on the independence debate. And then there was the Green Party Conference in Inverness, Lesley reports back from the front line.
