Best days of our lives etc...
This clear blue sky thing is quite fun still really. The jumpers from a few days ago seem so heavy and lumpy and unnecessary. We really don't need that kind of thing anymore. We are trim and slimline and perky here. How about you?
No shorts on view at Speech Day, I'm delighted to say. Even as temperatures in the hall rocketed and sweat poured from all pores, standards were maintained. This was in no small part due to the Chairman of Governors being Mr Justice Leveson himself. As he gazed at us all, the feeling that we were under examination was impossible to ignore. If we hadn't switched our phones off already, we certainly did as his Lordship's steely gaze swept the hall. Top man Hugh Dennis gave out the prizes and we all headed for the pub/revision/land of nod.
2 show day starts with 5 Live and movies and Charlize Theron. In 'Snow White and The Huntsman' she plays the wickedy-witchy queen and gets to say the 'Mirror mirror' line quite a few times. She is great in it and possibly one of the most beautiful women I have interviewed. This will not distract me from my task, especially as she is in a lovely hotel and I am in the studio. Which is a shame but maybe just as well.
Then to radio 2 and a wonderful ARF which really needs to start with THE BEST HOT WEATHER TUNE EVER RECORDED (and that Steve won't have played a few minutes before. I realise that makes things tricky). By this time, shorts are de rigueur of course.
Have a nimble and light-footed Friday, see you after 2&5.
