So The Hundred Club give away seemed to go well...

Chris Evans | 10:14 UK time, Thursday, 26 April 2012

One hundred pairs of tickets to come join us two weeks today for a special one-off show, all part of shake it up and shift around 2Day. Can't wait to be honest. We're live at 6pm with bands to die for, Keane, Chris Rea, Bellowhead, Jamie Cullum, Jessie J and Big Tom Jones and the cast of Jersey Boys. What's not to like there ?

Tomorrow Matt Le Blanc is our guest and then next week we go CarFest North crazy.

It's all good !

Peace and Love.

    Chris, sweeties, you've not forgotten the arrival of Noah's ickle baby sibling have you ....? You're going to be such a busy, busy lad!

    But it's all for charideeeee, so keep it up, and we'll (hopefully) see you in November for our usual CiN stint.

    Thanks for all the positive vibes for Nics mum. If time permits, I will report back after we get back on the outcome.

    Baggy, chin up tiger. Perhaps bear this in mind, which is something I learnt at the networking event yesterday:-

    Next time someone asks you whether your cup is half full or half empty, just reply that you're grateful to have a cup at all!

    Hello CE & Everyone.

    No rain but looking dull here today.

    Ooh! That sounds great in two weeks time Chris. Jesse J & Tom (The Voice) Jones, two of my favourites and as for Jersey Boys I love their Frankie Vallie & The Four Seasons so much I often put the link on my fb page. Time to do it again I think!

    You certainly are very busy Chris.

    PS I did do the vacuuming & mopping last night after all and glad I did as the man who checks the work has just been and informed me that there's been a delay getting the doors so next week. This calls for a lazy day I think :)

    Hi Chris: exciting times, indeed! Really looking forward to hearing Matt Le Blanc - I think he's terrific and he was fantastic in Episodes - if you didn't see that series, get the DVD today!!

    Maddy: yes, just as well you did the cleaning, after all. Delays, delays - there are always delays!

    Bingo: lovely to see you popping in. xx

    Baggy: hang in there.

    Back to work!

    Just had a very sneaky look at the line-up for 2DAY - I need to take the day off work!

    I nearly called to try and get tickets. I'd take my best friend but she's super poorly at the moment :( She loves Keane but she's in hospital having to have LP's and scans and stuff because the docs think there is something wrong with her brain or something (It's all a bit vague at the moment but various theories are being floated) *sad face*

    On the other hand it's my birthday tomorrow :D

    afternoon peeps - Telford weather report - not as bad as yesterday, but not great. Just had salad for lunch but really fancied something warming instead. Can't drink any more tea or I'll be in the Ladies all afternoon. Sausage and mash for tea, so something to look forward to.
    Hi to the newbies.

    Deevs - love the saying about the cup. I also like the one that was in Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - something like " it will be alright in the end, so if it's not alright now, then it isn't the end"

    Chrissie - loved Episodes (being repeated on BBC4 now) but I think there is a new series in the offing (according to my brother) and this is the 2nd thing Matt has been on lately so it is probably why.

    Back to the grind, so
    ttfn, Crumpy :O) xx

    Afternoon all,
    How did it get to Thursday so quickly ?

    Raining and grey here ....

    Debs, safe journey, and next time you are here, we will have chips and pie on your balcony :-)

    Hope everyone is ok. Not much to report at the mo .

    MC xxx living life in the today is pay day lane .

  • Comment number 12.

    Crumpy: thanks for letting me know Episodes is being repeated - I'll be checking that out. I thought it was just brilliant, and yes, I am sure series 2 is on its way - can't wait! I also loved the saying from Marigold - wonderful movie. xx

    Heading out for a wee walk, while it's not raining!

    Have all the tickets to the Hundred Club been given away now?

  • Comment number 15.

    Hello again.

    Well when I said no rain earlier on that didn't last long, it's been raining all day since.

    I was putting up my freshly washed net curtains when I noticed the male & female ducks on the green outside had spotted me and were waddling over this way. So I've just been feeding them some bread.

    MM xxx

    PS Welcome mandymoo59. You're so lucky to have seen The Jersey Boys live.

    Hello and welcome Dr Lou (when you get through)

  • Comment number 16.

    Back again ....

    Just a quickie to say Fracture Clinic was OK. X-Rays taken, it's healing slowly. She's been given some physio exercises to do, and we have an appointment for 6 weeks' time for the Fracture Clinic again. They're also going to send through a seperate appointment for the Physio follow-up.

    Back to the grindstone.

    Hope you're all having a good day.

    You havent seen me right.....

    Quick visit been so busy shouldnt moan really but off tomorrow will check in then as I am doing a washing/ironing and those domestic chores that still need to be done when you leave a 21 year old boy in charge of a house, should have had a girl really.... but wouldnt really swap him for the world.

    Deevs glad your ma in law is on the mend.

    Have a good evening everyone

    Han #7: I hope everything will be ok for your friend. Such a worry for you. But, I hope you have something nice planned for tomorrow.

    MC: pay day for me tomorrow - I will see it registered in the bank for all of about 15 minutes ... and then half of it will be gone in a flash thanks to the old Direct Debits!

    Mandymoo: welcome to the blog. I agree, Jersey Boys is a fantastic show.

    Maddy: bless the wee ducks!

    Dr Lou: welcome to the blog. I am sorry to say, it would appear the tickets have gone. Not to worry, Chris's show will also be on the "red button" so with a bit of luck, we'll all get to "be there"!

    Cheryl: very good news about the X-ray, thanks for letting us know. When I was doing my physio exercises with the frozen shoulder, I did them while listening to Chris, and it did help make them more bearable!

    Have a nice evening everyone, see you tomorrow.

    Evening all

    The sky has gone a funny blue sort of colour and there is a strange shiney thing up there! Very odd

    Hello New posters - good to see you here

    Debs, I recorded Chris's show from the Arch Bish's house Christmas before last but that was from watching it and pressing record - I still have it on the machine!

    I will ask a techie boy if they know how to do it!

    'Lo everybody else x x

    Debs, you can cloud plus the radio in advance. You just have to time it.

  • Comment number 23.

    Waiting for the candy man and then Matt - interested to see how that works out - to me he will always be joey

    Happy Friday everyone

    Good moring all,

    Black clouds at the moment here and it's rainining ,so nothing new to report at the mo.

    Thanks Debs I will, although checking on the weather forcast I think we need to take some waders with us for sunday ,and yes I'll give you a wave.

    The lady from the farm where we stay on our regular jaunts rang me to say that they are holding a Barn Dance on Saturday and has invited us ,how nice eh!!,so I just might be kicking some heels if thats what they say ,not been to a Barn Dance before so that should be intertesting.

    Have a good w/end all and take care ,and Henry,Gibbs and Radall,have a waggy one .


  • Comment number 26.

    Morning all

    Thank Goodness it's Friday! Why does it take so long for Friday to get here when the weeks go by so quickly?

    Bids, Have fun at the barn dance - should be a laugh!

    I'm off to a quiz night. It's an annual thing and I can't believe it's a whole year since the last one!

    Time again, never passes how you think it's going to!

    NicR: Heard your mention this morning.

    Bids: Enjoy the barn dance. You will have the best laugh of your life - the more wrong you/everyone else goes - the bigger the laughs. We've been to quite a few in the PJ household.

    Hope all have a good weekend. I'm over to Manchester again tomorrow to do the parents' shopping for them. I know I should do the internet thingy but I know Mum is feeling a little better and I will take her and 'dump' her in a coffee shop whilst I do the trolley dash. She's not been out of the house for over 3 weeks - so she can watch the world go by.

    Regards PJ

    Thanks for the mention this morning...even if you did only read out half of my tweet ;-0
    I heard you played Sit Down by James the other day and wondered if they are still going. Indeed they are and better than ever. And there is sooooooo much more to them than just that one bloomin' song that even they don't like playing!
