Playing: The Only Way Is Up by Otis Clay
BBC Radio 2
And away we go. Last show for 2 weeks from me and off we jolly well (to quote JY from a while back. One for bloggers of a certain age) I shall return fresh of mind and nimble of foot and am missing you already. I have my holiday reading sorted with the new book club choice 'I Am Pilgrim' (it ways a ton, I'll try getting a child to carry it) and downloaded a few bits and pieces for those early morning gaps. Some new shorts maybe? Maybe not.
My early guess for blog entries in absentia would be 712 and will try to remember to send the whole thing ticking over by posting a brief missive after 10days which always used to be the rule. Blog on...
Meanwhile, afore I go. Movies from 2 on 5L with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright the team responsible for The World's End, to complete the Shaun of the Dead/ Hot Fuzz trilogy. Then we roll on for a summer ARF and your year of requirement is 1971. A blistering, glamorous tune please!
Have a triumphant and poised Friday, see you at 2and/or5.
I'll send a post card.

    Blimey Charlie, 1147!?

    Jocko juice alert!

    Had a lovely day with my daughter and my niece and the now exhausted hounds at the gorgeous Northumberland coast, just walking and taking in the wildlife and sun, and taking photos, and having a paddle, even though it was VERY busy. Finished off with seaside fish and chips and a grand bottle of NZ SB when home to celebrate mine and Mr's 16th wedding anniversary (how long for murder?).

    No storms/thunder/lightning here. Just a very tired and relaxed blogger wanting her bed.

    Night night good blogfolk xxx

    I love an audiobook too, amelia. Sometimes when I'm walking the puppy it's a fight between which to listen to.. words or music.

    .....

    Right, that's my lot.

    Whoever's the last up, don't forget to turn the light off and unplug everything.

    See you Monday, sweet peas.

    gazza - it will be Christmas soon.

    Jilly - I'm just sitting here lost in the all the books I have loved and not wanted to end.

    I do think audiobook are one of the many blessing of the internet age - I get them for about £4 a time with an annual audible subscription and driving and walking they make my life better.

    Don't you just hate it when a book you love comes to an end? Sometimes I am completely bereft.

    There is another storm rolling in.....

    You and your fever tree are always welcome to play here Arthur (that sounds wrong too).

    I am almost finished listening to the new Stephen King - Joyland - even typing that has made me grin - it is a sweet, wonderful love story with a little bit of murder and a little bit of the supernatural - I said before until 11.22.63 I'd not read any of his stuff not being a horror fan but he does the whole storytelling, relationship better than anyone I think and the ones I have read aren't horror - well Under The Done was a quite horrific imagining of the horrors of small town politics gone mad - I am smitten with the characters in the new book and can hardly bear for it to end.

    We seem to be 10 minutes into the witching hour - maybe someone has pressed a magic button somewhere ...

    Am I being ganged up upon?

    I will take my fever tree and play on my own! Ok, that doesn't sound quite right.

    I'll take my leave though and leave the glory to a vet... Over to you gazza....
