A few lights, no cameras.
School run done, homework discussed, coffee poured. Boiler blessed and prayed for.
Early waking and ran tv thing round my head for an hour or so. Bit A follows bit B unless C happens in which case it's D next. Then probably E but maybe G. And don't forget to smile (which I always do). That kind of thing. A photo is required this very morning apparently, before all is revealed on Monday's blog. Clue? I bumped into one of the former hosts in the BBC car park last month. Maybe not very helpful after all. So make-up, fuss and bother, attention to my eyebrows, lights and suits will take their place very shortly and it will be fun I'm sure and the team seem lovely. But nothing will replace the lovely cardigan-broadcasting at Radio 2 which is the centre of everything. And no one cares about a misplaced eyebrow hair.
Anyway a lovely 2 show day again and first up it's movies on 5 Live with Viggo Mortensen as our special guest, "the new De Niro" according to Dr Kermode. He's playing Sigmund Freud in a new movie "A Dangerous Method' alongside Keira Knightley and man-of-the-moment Michael Fassbender. Then (and not needing to acquire loser's snacks) straight to R2 and some full-bloodied ARF duties. Who will be our captivating child of the week? Where are the hen-nighters heading to? Who has the boring DIY weekend with not much else to look forward to? All will be revealed from 5.
Have a warm and wrapped-up-well sort of Friday. See you after 2&5
