Firstly, after months of hype the state of the art SSE Hydro finally opened its doors with a bang on Monday evening.
The legendary Rod Stewart belted out his greatest hits to a delighted Glasgow audience, some of whom had queued since 9am just to get as close as possible to their hero on stage - Harry Styles eat your heart out.
Organisers have predicted that the new 12,000-seat capacity venue on the banks of the Clyde will host about 140 events each year including music stars and sporting occasions and attract one million visitors each year - making it the fifth biggest entertainment arena in the world.
I may need to aim higher than my local karaoke bar as a result.
With the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Bruno Mars and Peter Gabriel all set to take to this new purpose-built musical stage it's more than the lights that are looking bright for this new Glasgow attraction.
Also this week thousands of hopeful Commonwealth Games supporters found out if they had received the Willy Wonka style golden email confirming their tickets to next year's games.
My social media timeline was awash with ecstatic hopefuls all bragging about their luck in the 2014 Games lottery ticket draw, the most excited being my friend who was fortunate enough to get her hands on four tickets for the men's hockey event...and after the picture she posted on Facebook of the current GB men's squad in their birthday suits with only their hockey sticks for modesty, who can blame her.
As I mentioned in last week's column, on Friday evening I very nervously made another attempt to pass my Gaelic speaking Silver Card and I'm completely relieved to reveal I did it.
It was second time lucky for me and after achieving the required pass mark, which took months of effort and studying, not to mention the series of weird dreams I had in the lead-up to my exam.
My favourite was the one where I'm on holiday with Ryan Gosling lying on a private beach wearing a bikini. Hey it's my dream, so I looked liked Kelly Brook, and he confessed his undying love for me all in Gaelic.
it now means I can go ahead with my plans to compete in this year's Silver Pendant category at the Royal National Mòd in Paisley this month.
It's not only singing and speaking at this year's event though, as spectators will also be treated to sporting competitions - and there is even a two day Gaelic comedy workshop hosted by the lovely Carina MacLeod complete with a trophy for the winner.

SO excited to be attending the opening of the lovely Robert Miller's Art Exhibition on Monday evening. Robert is one of Scotland's most gifted artists and his portrait of me during the Pop Idol finals still hangs very proudly on my parents wall. The exhibition is at Soho on Miller Street in the city centre and will be opened to the public from Wednesday October 9 until November 1.
