Eat For Free at Tempo Aberdeen
We are loving the concept of Tempo, the new drop in centre in the Bon Accord Shopping Centre. It is somewhere to eat, drink and have time for you. Anything you eat or drink is free, you simply pay for the time you spend there, and the money goes to ARCHIE Foundation, the charity that supports ill children and their families.
Tempo is located on the ground floor of the mall where you are greeted by a volunteer at the welcome desk. Here you will quickly register, then your time starts, at 10p a minute. You then simply find a space to suit you, from their deep relaxing armchairs to table and chairs. Then help yourself to reading material, games and something to eat and drink. You can even take your own lunch.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

You do have to load up the dishwasher afterwards, but that only takes seconds of your time.
There is free super-fast broadband and plenty of charging points.
Then when you are ready to leave, you simply go back to the welcome desk, sign out, and pay for your time – a lovely way to donation to this important charity which receives 100% of proceeds. The unit is rent-free and companies such as IKEA donated furniture.

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
