You feeling SAD?

Anne Diamond bathed in blue light

I'm broadcasting 'neath the golden glow of a special SAD light.

I have no idea whether or not I suffer from Season Affective Disorder - but (probably like many others!) if I go to the SAD website and look up the likely symptoms, I can tick all of them!

So, since I am missing the sunshine so badly at the moment, I thought I'd get me a bit of light therapy, even if all of my guests wonder what on earth is going on! I'll let you know if it makes any difference or whether I've just been gimmicked out of £150 !!

BBC weatherman Phil Avery popped in today - always a great guest, and very much a man "going green". We were talking about the idea - for Wokingham - of being rationed to just 80 bags of rubbish a year. Phil told me he's signed up to become a local litter picker. There's a scheme in the Windsor and Maidenhead area whereby you can sign up to "adopt a street" or an area which you keep an eye on, picking up litter.

It really does sound like a fantastic idea. I think it's a shame my council (Oxford) don't seem to have a similar idea. But congrats to Windsor and Maidenhead - and to the Avery family - for making a difference!
