Can still see the strings though

Simon Mayo | 09:32 UK time, Tuesday, 11 January 2011

Late blog again, this is getting a habit. A tardy new year indeed.

A challenging school run today. A casual observation/whinge about pot holes not being mended led to a full blown attempted explanation of why councils and government have no money left. Robert Peston where are you when needed? They soon tired of my reasoned and balanced explanation. I think they wanted to me to blame the bankers. Or referee Howard Webb. Or Voldemort. Without someone easy to blame, they got bored. As do a lot of people.

Celeb overload today. Recording a chat with Matt Le Blanc and Stephen Mangan today for their new series 'Episodes' which started last night. Then it's Paul McKenna with his latest project I Can Make You Happy. 'Oh really?' you might be thinking, that depends on why I'm unhappy but Paul will explain at 6. Then I record a piece with Nicole Kidman for her new film Rabbit Hole. I know, it's a tough life. You'll hear the Nicole and Matt/Stephen interviews soon.

And those new Thunderbirds/Captain Scarlett/Joe90 stamps look magnificent. So let's do PUPPETS today on the oldies please. You know what to do.

Have an uplifting and supported Tuesday, see you after 5.
