Shorts week and a short week, who could ask for more ?
Loving it, loving it all...
...speaking to you live from Absolutelybeautifulsville here in sunny Berks.
Days like today fill your heart with all the right gold don't they ? Even if the backside of you is falling out the other end like mine is. I have picked up a stomach bug from somewhere, not a problem just a pain in the butt - literally. Corny but true, I daren't venture more than a few metres from a toilet at the mo', inconvenient and it means a mad dash to the studio later but I have a photo shoot later this week so at least it means I might look a little less lardy by Wednesday. Always look on the birght side eh ?
Our new website goes live today. That is the whole of Radio 2's new website. We will be launching it later on during our show. Think Yellow Submarine that's all I'm saying for now.
So hope you have been well, the family is rocking and the old man is a year older. What did I get for my birthday ? From my wife, a pair of slippers, honestly just what I wanted, I had no idea she had some idea ! Noah bought me some t shirts and a Ferrari book, damn that kid he's just too generous and my daughter bought me the coolest book of all - Ferrari Legends, maybe they'd had words. Every time I get a new Ferrari book it reminds me of being a kid as it's full of things I can't have. Not a bad discipline. My mum bought me a copy of Richard Madeley's book though I have no idea why and it's signed.
The most useful thing I have learnt in the fourteen days since we last chatted is that frozen bread makes far better toast than fresh bread by miiiiiiles. It's crispier and crunchier all the way through. Go try sweet children I promise you it is thus.
