  1. Devoid of hats

    Good morning from the chilly estate. The price for leaving a skylight open is 1) a very cold kitchen and 2) spider webs where spider webs shouldn't be. I knew I should have been more ruthless in throwing out my squatting arachnid friends but it is too late now. An early morning flourish with a duster...

    That Autumnal chill lets you know precisely where we are and who's in charge. 2 enormous spiders in the house late last night too-I let them proceed unimpeded. There will be a moment of reckoning here as I'm sure there will be a moment shortly when certain demands are made and their ejection is called...

  5. The hat dropped

    There you all are. Well done. It's Wednesday already and we've barely broken sweat (you speak for yourself Mayo-you only put records on). The London drains are flowing with Gloucestershire's mud and the post-holiday wash is almost done. The autumnal spiders are taking over the garden and the first glimpse...

  6. So follow me follow

    Well here we are again and thanks to young Elton for sitting in for me. A great selection of songs too-he's welcome back anytime (bank holidays and weekends preferably). If you had one, I hope your bank holiday was a good one. I was at the Greenbelt festival on the Cheltenham Racecourse which was graced...

  7. Going with the flow.

    Here we go with another,in some parts, bank holiday weekend. But in others, just another ordinary one. We carry on and gloss over the differences (though taking Monday off is hardly helpful you may think). The weather forecast suggests that those with nothing planned might be getting it right; rain and...

  8. Salut!

    Simon Mayo Simon Mayo Presenter

    Morning or 'Hey' as we seem to say now. I think it's to do with Friends where everyone greets everybody else with 'Hey'. This seems to have replaced hello, watcha, and good morning. . It makes life simpler I suppose but feels inappropriate with the grandparents so we are keeping a more formal "How do...

  9. Things to do

    Simon Mayo Simon Mayo Presenter

    Here we are with a lovely Wednesday to do something useful with. I've got a movie to see and a show to do but apart from that I'm not sure what I can contribute. Oh yes I remember there's ironing, washing, dealing with kids and visitors, opening the post which i've ignored for ages, and ring your mother...

  10. Best Laid Plans etc

    Simon Mayo Simon Mayo Presenter

    Hello, morning and a good Tuesday to bloggers everywhere. The first creepings of autumn are discernible across the estate as spiders spin and leaves turn. And those nights are creeping in, damn them. Anytime now I'll start to feel nervous about going back to school and going up a year. Need a new pencil...
