The team and I...

Chris Evans | 10:20 UK time, Wednesday, 1 February 2012

...(and see there is no 'I' in team - it's true) - are off out tonight to see Jersey Boys. We genuinely cannot wait. A night out with Moira is always a treat and to a musical ! Jim has fixed it for me again.

Now, here's the thing : Vassos thinks it's about the story of Bruce Springsteen. Do we tell him ? Or do we wait and see if he notices ? The latter, you say. I agree entirely.

A report will be forthcoming on the radio tomorrow.

Peace and Love

    Morning Chris

    HOW ON EARTH did Vassos get the thought in his bonce that Jerssey Boys is about Bruce!?!? That's hilarious. Keep him in the dark, but make sure he buys the ickle tubs of ice cream (spoon is hiding in the lid) at half time!

    And definitely a massive YES to a new puppy for the Evans household!

    Muchos amore - and please make sure you have "Oh what a night" tonight!

    Chris: hilarious about Vassos - it won't take him long to realise Jersey Boys has NOTHING to do with Bruce! Have a fantastic time - you are going to love the show - it is utterly brilliant. xx

    Hello CE & Everyone.

    Jersey Boys is one of my favourites, I often put it on facebook.

    Maddy: oooh, that was a treat! Brought back really wonderful memories of going to see the show with my sister, and went back again with our lovely Mary. Thanks for that link. xx

    AliB: from the previous blog - yes, I can see what you mean about the Valentine's stuff. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, your knight in shining armour is out there - I am sure of it. xx

    Not looking forward to going out at lunchtime today - I do believe it's just a tad chilly!

    hello all

    Sorry for the long stay away, thinks are busy at work and I has sick last week for a bit but feel much brighter ow.

    Haven't really caught up I'm afraid, happy birthday to the birthday people, hugs to gail and hurrah for the puppy at Deev's.

    As for me, well I'm still loving my job dispite the hours, there is lots of exciting project work at the moment that I'm involved in and a real step away from my comfort zone but that is what I wanted - I'm too young to be bored!

    I'm going to the MCN show in London this Sunday with a friend, really exciting about doing something bikey again :-)

    Health and happiness to all.

    Ive seen the Jersey boys, great show! On MOnday I went with my ma in law to see leagally Blonde, we both loved it

    Hi peeps
    I am here too, just incredibly busy with the new job (and loving it btw) and don't feel that much like being on pc at home!
    Hugs to all who need them

    afternoon peeps
    Trying to stick to my resolution to do a quick post every couple of days.

    Susan - have a wonderful time at the wedding and no tears or it will ruin your makeup!
    Gail - really sorry to hear about David's mum. Please give him a hug from me.
    AliB - I love Rizzoli and Isles, also Unforgettable, Covert Affairs and The Good Wife - all American.

    Weather-check: Was -4 this morning when I set out from Wrexham at 6.20 and although I think it is still probably 0 degrees, it is beautifully sunny in Telford with lovely blue skies.

    part 2

    Just lunched on soup in a cup with home made bread to dunk - yummy.
    It's the loaf I had proving on Sunday and is still lovely and fresh, not dry at all.
    There will be just enough for the same again tomorrow, I think.

    Community choir last night and the Tenor Ladies - as I inadvertently christened the group of us ladies who sing tenor! - were on top form! dancing as well as singing our part of the 5 songs we covered. We are a bit rowdy, I'm sorry to say.

    And ... we have been asked to perform at two charity functions. One on 9th March in a local community centre and then on 19th April in the parish church! We are all so excited.

    Finally, did anyone hear Raul Malo on Simon Mayo last night? His rendition of Imagine was beautiful. Honestly it's not a song I have ever really warmed to, sorry Deev - I know Lennon is a bit of a hero - but I thought he sang it so gently it was a delight. Listen Again if you didn't catch it.

    Back to the grind, ttfn, Crumpy xx

    Hi everyone,

    Minus 2 and absolutely beautiful and sunny day here.

    I didn't know what Jersey Boys was about either but now that I have checked it out, I would love to see it, especially with the brekky team.

    There's nothing more they can do for David's Mum and she has been put on the waiting list to do into the Ayrshire Hospice, he went to see her last night and talked things through, a tough time for him and the rest of his family.

    Hope everyone has a good day.

    Gorgeous day here, chilly, but oh so sunny,

    Crumpy, I am giggling at your Tenor title - I still think you are secretly aiming for the Christmas number 1 , then I can say that I knew you before you were famous .

    Chrissie, you get out there and have a stroll :-) mind you, I just went downstairs to our tuck box in the kitchen and treated myself . It should be nice and light at 5pm again tonight. I am so looking forward to the light nights.

    Susan, hope the wedding went well, and certainly looking forward to the pictures please ?

    Tiggs, so glad you are enjoying your new job, keep smiling :-)

    Right, must dash, my hour of freedom has expired again.

    Hi to everyone else, take care ,

    Greetings Ter CLP 'pal' & ALL Bloggies 'pals' (boy pals and girls pals!!!)...

    Bingo Star 'ere...

    CLP 'mate'...

    A agree there is no 'I' in team but if yer Bingo Star.... 'I' is 'A' so in that sense 'I' is in team... Although not in official english..... Although a know what yer saying that there's no 'U' in team although 'U' are VERY much part of the team and the front man of the situation - Know what 'I' am sayin'!!!!!!!

    So terdee am nearly ready at me new old 'ouse for me gasman coming termorrow, ave knocked a 'ole through me wall for me boiler flue.... Ave lifted me floors boards and made the channels through though joists... for the pipes ter run!!!! (and thankfully not too big channels otherwise walking upstair would be like walking on a trampoline!!!!)..... BUT a spanner 'as been thrown inter the works of life blog pals/ mates.... The works of life!!!!!!!!
    In fact terdee a variety of spanner sizes are required.... Ter get part of me life back on track... (or the road!!!!).

    Me new old car thatta recently bought (October)... ave been putting doing some VERY important things as ave been so busy with me 'ouse!!!!!!
    When ever a buy a car.... First thing a do is service it and the number most improtant thing ter do ter any car.... change the engine oil regular!!!!! (this the one single reason why enghine sblow on cars - not changing the oil regular!!!)
    And since a don't know for sure what the previous owner 'as done.... A like ter play safe which is why me cars VERY rarely fail me!!!!!!!
    A admit ave been naughty and nursed me car through winter... with a few starting problems in the cold.... All due ter it needs servicing... Fuel filter, oil filter, air filter and oil ter keep the engine from premature wear!!!!!!!!
    AND recently a spotted something that didn't look good.... Me fanbelt/ alternator belt!!!!!!!
    It looked VERY worn.... A sign the car 'as not been a serviced as it should!!!!!!!!!
    Only 2 weeks ago a said ter mesen... 'I'.... 'A'.... A MUSt immediately change me fanbelt before it snaps!!!!!!!!!!
    But who wants te rbe outside under a car in FREEZING weather.... Which is why a always get me car ready for winter in September!!!!!!!!!
    BUT last night on the way 'ome ter work me belt snapped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thus meaning me battery will soon not be charged!!!!!!!!
    A mad eit 'ome at speed before a lost me lights.... 'eater off... radio off ter save juice on the battery!!!!!!!!!

    The good news is terdee.... Ave bought a new fanbelt, only 15 sheets (15 pound).... And ter sav eme messing ave found a man who will fit it for 20 sheets!!!!!!!!!
    Total 35 sheets in the 'and!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now if that was the car dealers... yer could be looking at 78 sheets.... maybe 187 sheets.... It's almost like they just make a number up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    But many will say ahhh yes but genuine parts and yer cna trust them!!!!!!
    Did you know all.... That the cheaper parts from motor factors ar eoften the same ones the dealers buy (yer often see the motor factors delivery fan outside the dealers).... And ok if it's got the name of the make of car stamped on it instead..... It usually is made in the same factory as the not stamped part!!!!!!!
    A know as ave seen it for meself in me truck when ave been at these factories!!!!!!
    Same with most things!!!!!!!!
    It's called consumerism but ter me it's a legal way off ripping people off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'd 'ate ter know 'ow much a Ferrari fanbelt would cost and ter fit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I know a cambelt costs over 1,000 sheets ter supply and fit..... What must it costs for a Ferrari Enzo?????????????????????
    Maybe 2k or more just for a belt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Ok a know for such a car they are made tougher.... But at the end of the day it's all just nuts and bolts the same as my ordinary Rover diesel...... And the cambelt is made of rubber and plastics the same..... Yet why does it cost maybe 30 times more??????? (a cambelt 70 sheets for my car!!!!)
    Many will say it's specialist service/ knowledge and special parts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To a degree yes.... but at the end of the da yit's consumerism and all about what they can get away with charging!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    CLP pal/ mate..... Next time yer need yer Enzo serving..... A know a bloke/ pal/ mate who down the Birkenhead dock road will do it for 400 sheets not 5k plus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A got me Lotus Espirit servied there for 300.... The dealer wanted 1,100 ter do the same job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Talkin' of which..... Am off ter get me car fixed know, sorry now!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Niceness ter each ;-)))))

  • Comment number 12.

    Blog postition number 11.... A like this as it's is 'alf 22.... Yer could 'alf price.... Bit like me car repair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PS DozyMac & AliB - Taking yer Ferrari ter the Ferrari dealers 'for sure' is one moment when yer will not get called 'pal' or 'mate'..... It will be Sir or Madam..... Complete with free tea and biscuuwits..... All for the grand price of as many grand sas they can get outta yer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A tell yer i've often though that if a was very rich..... It would really anger me all these types of people who try and get as much money out of yer as possible..... Can't fully avoid them if yer living the millionaire life like running a roller etc..... But man would it annoy me!!!!!!!!!

    It's like estate agents who sell very expensive 'ouses.... The are posher looking types and speak in silly english like 'this is a most well desired period town 'ouse with most excellent transportation links!' (aych included in thier case)..... What they are trying ter say in the way the rest of us speak is 'It's a 4 bed 'ouse built around 80 years ago next ter a bus stop!!!!!!'

    Tattyy bye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!@!

    Afternoon Each

    Chris, Enjoy tonight. I'd love to go and see it, may be I'll try this year, haven't been to the theater for years and years!

    Crumpy, I too love the name you gave to your choir, made me chuckle xx I too watch Covert Affairs and The Good Wife, which is my favourite progame at the moment. I'm still recovering from Will and Alicia's naughtiness a few weeks ago!! ;)

    Gail, Hugs to you, David and the rest of the family, a tough time ahead for you all. Thinking of you xx

    Hi Tiggs, Glad the job is going well xx

    MC, I must admit that this lighter nights have caught me out a few times, in a good way, as it's been later than I thought it was!

    Chrissie, Thank you xx

    Bingo ?? !!!!!!!! I started to count your exclamation marks but gave up after 121!


  • Comment number 14.

    Afternoon everyone

    Gail - so sorry to hear about David's mum. I hope you can all stay strong for each other and remember the good times over the coming weeks/months. x x x

    Crumpy - yes, I am also giggling at the name of the choir, and way to go with getting gigs already! I'd be intrigued to know what's on your after-show rider for your dressing room ...... ;-)

    Baggy - glad the job's still going well - I do worry about you, y'know! If it's any help (which it probably isn't!) every day is t aking me out of my comfort zone at the mo - good days and bad - but I'll get there. Eventually. As will you.

    Chrissie - I think we're up to Season 5 of The Sopranos, and it's just fantastic! We tend to watch it on a Friday night with our curry and some vino. It's our "Bada Bing" night!

    I've been busy this morning. Baked a load of spiced bicsuits (or are they cookies?!?!), boxed them up and have been hand delivering them to targeted businesses in the area. And yes, it's blimmin' cold out there. I've got to go out again later as one of the places I want to target was closed (despite their advertised opening hours), but it's not a problem.

    Right, best crack on - need to hit the phones this afternoon for a client.

    Laters, mi amigos!

  • Comment number 15.

    Peeps, I should point out that the choir as a whole is Wrexham Community Choir, the Tenor Ladies are just the rowdiest of the various sections!

    My pals Allison and Meg are in the Sopranos ...! so may start sporting horrible check jackets and talking with a pseudo Italian/American accents!

    Deev - I guess the dressing room rider would be a bucket (or possibly a bin-bag!)

    Drama rehearsals tonight, so chippy tea before turning around twice and back out the door.

    ttfn, Crumpy xx

  • Comment number 16.

    Back again...

    Back from the garrrraggge.... Car fixed!!!!!!!!

    Now back ter demolishing more of me new old 'ouse!!!!!

    PS AliB - Never count a man's explimination marks!!!!!!!!!!!
    Too many exlinination marks will only leave you with too many question marks as to why a man 'as too many exlimination marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    'ope this 'elps!!!!!

  • Comment number 17.

    Afternoon bloggies

    Dozymac/Gail Virtual hugs to you and David (and his Mum). She will be in the best place for her and you all - they are an inspiration - if that's not a cliche. Staffed by the kindest most thoughtful people who will look out for you all.

    Well it's blimming freezing here on the Welsh borders also. -4 also this morning as I left slightly (but only slightly) later than Crumpy. My friend has recently joined a choir - presume they might be rivals of yours. Think they're called something like the Border Singers. Don't think she's in the tenors ............... but is probably as boisterous.

    Longing to hear how the wedding has gone.

    Regards PJ

  • Comment number 18.

    PS Dozymac & AliB - Ave never noticed CLP calls people 'pal' alot!!!!!

    Maybe the 'pal' and 'mate' is more of a northern england thing as us northerners are known for being more friendly!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aka less formal - know what am sayin' gals and pals!!!!

  • Comment number 19.


    Nice to see a wee visit from Baggy and Tiggs.

    Crumpy: the choir sounds like terrific fun - you must be loving it!

    Gail: I am so sorry to hear the update on David's Mum. Having experienced what happened to my sister last year, I do know that what PJ is saying about the hospice is spot on. Also, I think that because David, his family and his Mum are able to talk about all this, it will be a tremendous comfort to the family, in time. xx

    MC: yes, I got myself out there for a wee walk, and it was actually quite enjoyable. It's lovely to see you here at lunchtime these days. xx

    Cheryl: oooh, well you are getting through that box set! Glad you are enjoying it - it is riveting stuff!

  • Comment number 20.

    Hi all

    Sorry I haven't been around. I have been lurking but haven't had a lot to say. Thanks for missing me Ali.

    Too many things to mention but my thoughts are with Gail and David, it is never an easy time but as Chrissie says the fact that they are able to talk about things will be a comfort - that's something I didn't really get with my mum and although my cousin was prepared for the recent passing of my aunt, they were not able to talk about it either.

    I hope the wedding went well today (was it North or South Susan?) either way I hope the snow managed to stay away.

    (((((((Hugs)))))))) to all who need or want them (I know I could do with a blog hug)

    I will be back more regularly now.

    Hey everyone, just done the speediest scan catch up of last couple of days but did want to say thoughts are with Gail and David.

    Hope mother of the bride is currently holding her Xth glass of fizz and having a ball!

    and nice to see MC, Tiggs, Crumpy, Loli, PJ, mtd & baggy popping in for a chat too

    Sorry if I've missed anything/anyone else, but it was a real speed read!

    News update - survived and PASSED the audit, phewski, so onwards and upwards.

    Right time to put tea on, feet up and catch up with the telebox
    Happy Hump day everyone

  • Comment number 22.

    Evening all,

    Dozy, i missed your post earlier today, i think it must have appeared as i was writing mine. I wanted to say how sorry I was to hear your news, and that I am thinking of you all so very much .

    Debs, so glad you passed your audit , its a great feeling isn't it.
    You get them footsies up and celebrate . :-)

    Chrissie, thanks for your nice words, glad you got out and about . I work in the sticks albeit a ten minute drive out of town . I must admit , i never go out at lunch time , I do miss working in the town centre, but its so much cheaper !!! It's so easy to shop an hour away !

    Deevs. love the idea of baking and distibuting to potential clients. :-))))

    Right, am off to wrap up in my slanket and watch the telly, these dark nights are getting "so last year "

    MC xxx

  • Comment number 23.

    Evening each

    Have googled the Jersey Boys and it sounds fabby - wish I was there and have a great night Chris.

    Hello Baggy, Crumpy, mtd et al.

    MC - beware of that slanket - daughter loves hers but I await the news that she has tripped over it and broken a limb, she is the most clumsy person I know.

    Gail - how very sad for David and his Mum. Nothing we can say helps much, but I am thinking of them. I didn't get to say goodbye to my brother and I so wish I could have told him how much I loved him. Maybe it will help David in the months to come that he and his Mum had the opportunity to talk.

    Debs, congratulations on passing your audit - have the penguins been broken out?

    Been at daughters for dinner. 9yr old gave us a preview of his presentation to his class about Venus on his ipad. He made it himself, wrote the script, and it was fascinating. So much for children today having no imagination!!


  • Comment number 24.

    Evening all

    Hugs to Gail and all your family (((xxx)))

    Have just dropped Mad Boy1 off - he and the Explorer Scouts are off hiking tonight in the cold frosty night**** (I would use exclamation marks but can't find any left£££)

    MC, I'm envying your slanket! I have but a mere fleecey blanket tucked around my feet but the house is toasty warm!

    Nice to see some lovely lurkers popping in to catch up today

    Sezza, photos on FB of the slanket - looks very dangerous to me!!!!! (I've got loads of exclamation marks left!!).

    Hope Boy1 enjoys his hike - totally mad boy.


  • Comment number 26.

    Oh, Meant to say, all sort of people get ticked off at The Great Valentines Day Rip Off$^%£ (nope still can't find any()

    Us old marrieds never pay it any attention and I get fed up with being faced by a see of sickly red every time I go into a shop!

    Annie, My heart sinks if anyone give one of my old ladies a slanket£ Broken Hip anyone! (OO There's one!)

    Sezza xxx

  • Comment number 27.

    I shouldn't laugh I know Sezza, but that's what I think every time I see that bloomin' slanket!! (need a lend of some exclamation marks?)

    Actually, even though I know Valentines Day is a ripoff, I'd quite like a bunch of red roses. Not going to get them though.


  • Comment number 28.

    Right, off to watch Celtic Connections. Night all.


  • Comment number 29.


    I would love to see the Jersey Boys, if we ever brave London for a visit (I don't do big cities) it will be on my must see list (if it's still going that is!)

    Dozy, sorry to hear about David's mum, thinking of you all xx

    Well done on the audit Debs! xx

    Just alot of waiting going on here.....and silent panicking!

    The boy is going through stages of 'when are we moving, I want to move' and 'I love this house I want to stay here' - both with copious amounts of tears, so the sooner it happens the better for my (and his) sanity.
    What is sad is he is making some really good friends at pre-school, we had someone for tea yesterday and he went to his girlfriends for tea tonight. He was one happy little boy when he bounced home!

    Sezza - Hope boy1 has at least 4 layers on! Blinking freezing!!

    No Slankets in this house, just my baby duvet - the feather duvet off my cot still with original patchwork cover!

    Keep warm all!

  • Comment number 30.

    Dear all

    Really didn't want to leave my bed this morning but I did and am now at work, absolutely freezing.

    I have a slunket but it never gets used as such, more like a blanket wrapped around the lower half od my body, it was mr bp valentine present to me last year.

    This year I shall be working so we wont do much for valentines day, but just once I would like a bunche of flowers delivered to me at work from mr bp (or a secret valentine!) but I know it is never going to happen. I guess I can still wish and hope thnough - I guess thats the fun of the day, you never quite know what will happen, even if nothing ever does!


  • Comment number 31.

    Good morning everyone,

    Another beautiful clear sky this morning and minus 4.

    Thanks for all your comments, they have been passed on.

    Hugs to MTD. {{{{}}}}

    I forgot to mention that on Saturday I did CLP's poached egg, I normally don't like poached eggs as I find them too runny, I don't mind the yolk being a bit runny but if any of the white is, I just can't eat it, however, using Chris' recipe, the egg was absolutely perfect, and it had just been laid about half an hour before I cooked it, so you don't get much fresher than that. I had it on half a bagel with butter. As David was working on Saturday, we both had one on Sunday, this time on toast, and again, it was perfect! Result!!

    Have a good day everyone.



  • Comment number 32.

    Morning peeeeeeps!

    Blimey, it's nippy round the auld nicky-nacky-noos this morning, keep 'em warm if you're out and about!


    I have mixed feelings about Valentine's Day. I absolutely cringe at some of the pure tat in the shops and yes, too many do cash in commercially. BUT like every lady, I'd love to be sent a bunch of roses (or even daffodils!). Nic ALWAYS buys the most lovely cards, with verses that usually reduce me to a quivering wreck (this goes for Christmas, birthday cards etc not just the February one). And he does buy me flowers during the year for no reason other than "just because" which is a really lovely thing to do.

    Another bug-bear is that my nan's birthday is 7th Feb, and whenever I want to send her birthday flowers I usually end up paying over the odds, purely because her birthday falls near Valentine's Day - I don't want to send her a dozen red roses, just some nice arrangement, but still the price gets Valentine's Day hiked.




    I'm intrigued to know what Tash's Terms & Conditions are for their new puppy .... come on CLP, please do tell!

    Muchos amore,

    The Virtual One

    Hi everyone:

    A very chilly one here this morning, but no ice, for which I am so grateful. Hope everyone else is coping ok with the elements.

    mtd: lovely to see you - I have been wondering where you were. And a big hug to you {{{}}} xx

    Debs: well done with the audit - I absolutely dread them!

    Annie: your 9 year old grandson sounds like a very clever boy! Very impressive.

    eb: the moving house thingy - really difficult when you want your lovely wee boy to be happy. From a wee bit of experience with this with my own daughter, I am sure he will be just fine once it happens. It's the waiting for the green light that's the worst part!

    Re: Valentine's Day - I did receive 6 red roses delivered to my office once ... about 23 years ago! Obviously MrS is not a man who likes to spoil me too much!

    Have a good day, all.

    Hi again,

    Valentine's day, I don't like cut flowers, I think they are a waste of money, but we usually always go out for dinner, my work colleague says it's just a waste of money and it's just commercialism but we tend to think it's more just a bit of fun!!!

    Morning bloggies

    It's blimming cold on the Welsh border. One of the chaps in our office asked if he could turn the heating down .................. nearly got lynched. We've no running water .................. not sure it's legal for us to be working. They've sent out for bottled - water that is.

    I've just seen that CLP is 'holding his own' - ooer Missus - in the listening figures. Well done. Who said it wouldn't last? Not me !

    hi mate my missus is being sacked this week by the BBC for not being able to work 9-6 from elstree whilst trying to bring up our 16 month old daughter meaning they would be apart for at least 15 hrs a day.
    you wouldnt believe the vile conduct the bbc management & hr have put my family through
    the only light i have seen tonight is a exert from another blog one would wish from the bbc
    not to sell all and abandon family / community responsibilities, simply to follow love / compassion / honour, in equal fellowship
