Testing testing

Eddie Mair | 09:54 UK time, Wednesday, 22 August 2007

Tried to post yesterday afternoon unsuccessfully so will try again - and maybe email our senior blog chums if it doesn't work!

10.00 UPDATE:

Ooh. It worked and yesterday's appeared.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank fifi for sterling work last week in getting addresses out of lots of regular froggers. She did that at my request, because I wanted to send a little something to all the regulars to mark our first birthday.

Sadly, somehow, nothing I sent has arrived. We are investigating this end, but I wanted to publicly thank her and apologise to regular froggers that the small something has not appeared. Rather cross about it.

1220 UPDATE:

Big Sis and Dafydd send this from Wales "Cofion o Cymru"


And thank you to Gillian - not just for this lovely card:


but a frog - a photo of which I've been trying to post here...without success so far. Stand by.

and here is bass guitar (Fifi's Nemesis) and then there's Gossipmistress

    ooo, no comments yet. obviously everyone is in the huff with you Eric! However I'm sure it's not your fault that nothing has arrived.
    on a hapier note, isn't it lovely now the children have gone back to school?

    I must admit i've beenwaiting with anticipation every time the post has been delivered but was not concerned. Am now!

    I recently needed some documents posting to me from a health service organisation. As the parcle (recorded delivery) had missed the post it was safely locked in a cupboard and promptly forgotten about. Have you checked the post room cupboards?

    The children around here (Manchester) don't return to school for another fortnight. Where do you live?

    And the 'little something' is still eagerly awaited Eric! Don't give up.

    This mornings Twitter about the 'persistent trolls' is noted, by the way, in addition to your previous similar note. I wonder who you're referring to? In the words of the Duke of Wellington "Publish and be damned!". Name names.....

    Hmmm maybe it's all this new-fangled pricing structure from the Post Office that's done it!

    Are these email addresses or postal addresses that you needed Eddie? I managed to miss the entire thing, as usual.

    Also missed yesterday's show due to LW-Cricket unfortunately. But I'm sure that it was a corker.

    Well, if I had known what it was for I might have given my address, but I didn't, so I didn't.

    well RJ you should have had more faith in Fifi.

    And Fearless if you're there, sorry I didn't remember it was you that brought up Neverwhere - busy Mums, forgetting is what we do.

    Well I hope you're going to send whatever it is to Lissa as well. Because she was practically blog mum in those early days. What's that? You'd forgotten about her? OOOh, it really is out of sight, out of mind with you show-biz types, isn't it?

    As far as nothing reaching here - I'm not surprised. The postman doesn't seem to bother calling at all 3 days out of 6. Oddly, some days we get a real heap of stuff. They couldn't possibly be hoarding the mail until it was worth while delivering it all at once, could they?

    Annasee (11) I miss Lissa every day. She was superb. And I hear - still is!

    Indeed I still am superb. In fact, superber.

    Everyone who missed out ... you can still do it! Contact me via my weblink and I'll pass on your postal address to the BBC Black Hole!

    (Sorry am out of commission today, alas ... letting a cold have its wicked way with me, in hopes of being well enough to lug a PA kit around and sing on Sunday!)

    Thanks most welcome, Eric.

    (16) - Fifi, you should have heard from me by now.

  18. At 06:03 PM on 22 Aug 2007, Fifi wrote:

    Dr Hackenbush (17) : Yes I have.

    And I have replied.

    And I have done the deed.

    Don't worry, my lips are sealed...

    Is that it, then? Just a tempting morsel of what might have been?

    Or is there still hope?........

    Do say yes :-)

    Fifi- hope you feel 'tickety- boo'' v. soon.

    Thanks Molly (19) ... much appreciated.


    I'm afraid I am in a stroppy mood today, as visitors to yesterday's Glass Box may well find out if I'm not modded out!

    Tin hats advised...
