    Wednesday already, the coffee is on and the sun is still out. Rain on the way, child 3 says he has a waterproof at school (we will see) and a top show on the way (though obviously you'll be the judge on that). How are all the top bloggers here on the top blog?

    Busy old show on the way! John Cleese is in today to talk Python and getting the whole show on the road one final time. I haven't interviewed him for many years but he was always a fan of radio and an earnest interviewee.

    Phew what a scorcher etc. Shorts made an appearance yesterday but no one was looking so I might have got away with it. A sunny weekend of many comings and goings, visitors and takeaways before ending up at a pub bash for Rick Wakeman's 65th birthday.

    Sunglasses needed by 5am here. It's a look, you should try it. PJ's and shades, it's a winning combo and won't lead to derision at all.

    Morning from a sunny office with blue sky and warm temps on the way (temperatures not casual staff obvs). First blogger in shorts? Maybe too early for all that sort of thing.
