Good morning, blogging in pjs again prior to another school trip and wondering again about saying 'this is breakfast' at the start of the show. This happened either because Mike Smith had just been on the news or there is still part of my head wandering backstage at the Royal Albert Hall as Art Garfunkel. And signing off the show with 'have a good weekend' would indicate the Radio 2 doctor might be popping in for a visit sometime soon. Maybe my biorhythms are in the wrong order and not in alignment with Mercury. Or I should stop waking up at 4am or something. Ho hum.
In between those 2 errors, I thought everything else was tip-top and Jacqueline Wilson great with the children reviewers and the web-chat was throbbing with excited readers. It's Kate Mosse in a fortnight and her latest 'Citadel'.
Today we welcome Neil Oliver, top historian and rugged tv host. His latest series is Vikings and tells the story of how they spread their Scandinavian prowess to America and Baghdad. They conquered of course by persuasion, art criticism and literary analysis and their empire lasted nearly 200 years. Neil will explain more and I think VIKING oldies might work splendidly.
Have a responsible and mature Tuesday, see you after 5.

    Morning all!

    Wanted to say well done to Jennie for your weigh in trip yesterday - I typed my post as you came back, I think. Keep going! You know you can do it x

    Getting into a bit of a pickle with remembering who to congratulate for a mensh - listening to last night's show live and then still listening again to the one from the night before, so congrats to all I may have forgotten.

    MollyCoddle, if I don't 'see' you before Friday, have a fab trip away.

    JBG - hope all goes well for your mum x

    Deebee, Amelia and Zoe, sending best wishes for your soon-to-arrive rendevous up North x

    Lilac Blue, hope your recovery continues well x

    Shona - keep skipping!

    Bye x

    Good morning - Mr thought it was chilly when he got up, so fired up the heating - I feel distinctly warm so have turned it off now that he has gone out - most unusual! Is it my age?? ;0))

    Mind you, Carol on BBC brekkie said it was frosty around the Trossachs this morning - ooeerr!

    #117, Autumn G. I had a similar experience with i-player. It was caused by the calendar/clock on my 'puter being set to the wrong time and date. Putting those right sorted the problem. I hope this works for you, but it might be a firewall or something. (Do I sound like I have any clue as to what I am on about? I don't!)
