Morning. A hint of sun and the promise of more to come (by June at least). And a weekend to round things off. I have no idea what we are doing so will once again be in awe of all the callers tonight who have it all detailed. We have a number of options, one of which is to do not very much at all. This is unlikely to come to fruition but you never know. It would be nice to write a few words for book 3 as this leads to a general sense of well-being. I'm vaguely on target but it doesn't feel like it and if I could conjure a few extra chapters from thin air that would be great. But in the meantime....
So the mystery voice was Thom Yorke and it went much quicker than I thought. This has been fun this week but I fear social media has effectively killed off this kind of competition. As soon as someone has the answer, it spreads virally and everyone knows the answer extremely quickly. So those wonderful 'it's-been-running-for-months!' quizzes are not likely to return I think.
Show 1 today with movies on 5L with Dr Mark and Steve Coogan talking The Look of Love in which he plays porn magnate Paul Raymond. Then we'll bring you some ARF action with your opening year of requirement being 1982, which was quite a jolly one I think but we'll see what you come up with.
Have a bright-eyed and sparkly Friday, see you at 2&5 on 5&2.

    @ PC - I have never spoken about this before.

    I was truly a brilliant teacher. I won accolades for my teaching. I was especially good at teaching Performing Arts. That involved many hours of Extra Curricula Activities - unpaid - but SellOut shows - 9 perfomances - 2 matinees – All worth while!

    Then I realised that I had an affinity with children who were underachieving - for example - I took a weedylooking child who had bad grades and had been bullied because of his stature - and I made him the star as Buttons in Cinderalla. Did his life change? Ha!
    Then – Only God Knows – I moved to teaching in a school for Children With Behaviour Problems – used to be called “MallAd”.
    The stories I could tell –
    A boy kept in a cupboard because he wasn’t a girl –
    A boy who had escaped from a House Fire – and was so enamourted by it – that he tried to recreate it by throwing anything flammable on the fire!
    Goodness! Memories!
    So then I applied for – and was accepted for the post of something that of title I cannot now remember. I loved it! I truly loved it!
    When I first started I had 8 children – ages 8 – 12 – Ooh! “Star of the Week”! Ha! And “ Nigel, That was not good! That was Brilliant!”
    Anyway – to go back to PC where this all started –
    I used to get home at night and think “ I’ve not spent any time today with a certain child.
    Then – the Bad Dreams – My hitting a child – and it’s head separate flying!

    And – one morning – I breakfasted – showered – went to the car – and sat in it and cried! I sat in it and cried ! Mr. came to rescue me.

    This post was in response to PC - I don’t know what one can gleen from this.

    Except – Enjoy!

    Billie - I too tend to have bad dreams on a Sunday night. Or else I don't sleep at all. It's always been the same!

    Time to head in the direction of bed, though, as I have a very early start in the morning. It is easier to do when there is daylight, but it's still not my favourite time of the day. I could sleep in all day if I didn't have to get up, I'm afraid...

    It's been a lovely weekend, though, and I'm grateful for that. Wishing all you lovely bloggers a fantastic week, with lots of mentions. I do like knowing the names of those who have chosen the songs for each night's theme.

    Phew! Jennie, I'm as whacked as you with the marathon etc. Was that you in a chicken costume I passed around the half way line?

    My field consists of other people doing all the work and me oohing and ahhing in the right places but I popped on to say an assistant producer of Radio 2 is following me on Twitter. How coooooool is that?

    I know, I know, he's probably just out of shorts and still has pimples but way hay! I'm chuffed!

    Hello again -

    #132 - PerfectCircle - I used to teach and completely understand "Sunday Evening Syndrome" - and I understand that by 10am you'll be over it. I loved my job - but on a Sunday night - more than any other - it was daunting!

    Sunday night was the night when I would have bad dreams - Ha!

    Nothing much has been achieved today but isn't that what a Sunday is for? I've read loads of papers. I've loved the Radio today - as I do every Sunday - EP, JW and now PO'G - I LOVE Mr. O'G !

    I shall KB while MB is on - I switch off as soon as he says "Hello, My Lovelies"! even though I know he plays fine music! How does it go - ? Bleuurgh?

    Then back for CravatClad - Russell Davies! Will he enjoy our supper? Pork Steaks cooked with Onions & Apple in Cider - Cream added later - Mash, Cabbage - and rather strangely - Courgettes - Scouse reference - "they were left over from a job"! Ha!


    Should the ? mark or the ! mark go inside or outside the brackets? These things are sent to try us!


    Ah! BCR - love it! I play it! Yummy!

    Evening all.

    Like everyone else, I think my weekend just passed me by. Maybe work is to blame for that. I think Tuesday and Wednesday are the new Saturday and Sunday for me.

    However, a Sunday roast is always a must and just grabbing a quick breather while things are a cooking in the kitchen.

    Katymaty, I just love the picture of Stonehenge and Jennie, yes, what a wonderful image that portrays. The engineering feats required to build Stonehenge and the amazing technology of the space station both worlds apart, yet coming together in one picture.

    OOps, time to drain the spuds.....
