Greetings bloggers. A lovely Friday beckons, weather notwithstanding (I have no basis for this statement and there is more evidence to the contrary. But I make it anyway). Child 1 should be returning to the fold which will be lovely but means we will all have to rearrange our places in the house. Just when you're used to them not being there, they're back. More food required. A lot more food required. Then, just as we get used to being 5 again, child 1 will upsticks and we'll be 4 again. Then 3 (repeat to fade).
Top book launch with Jeremy Vine last night. JV has written a book on his 25 years at the BBC and the room was awash with the nations finest journos: Jon Sopel, Steve Richards, Jonathan Friedland, Justin Webb etc Politicians like IDS and top radio talent like Ken Bruce and Sir Bob Harris. Tim Vine made a hilarious speech which, I can inform you, had IDS in stitches. Haven't read JV's book but it sounds packed with tasty morsels (just done the maths and realised I've been with the BBC for 30 years. I've missed a trick.)
2 shows today and first up it's movies on 5L and guests Robert Pattinson and David Cronenberg who are star and director of Cosmopolis which is out today. We recorded the piece a week back,but there is a frisson in the room when a top heartthrob is in the room (a bit like hanging out with Ken Bruce) and can report R Patz was charming and suave.
Then the ARF for R2 and looking forward to it already. No restrictions for today's opening tune, just the best you can possibly think of to set everyone off in the best possible spirit. Over to you bloggers and blogvets...
Have an organised and waste free Friday. See you after 2&5

    Morning everyone

    Sunny today after a wet Saturday and an OK Sunday.. let's hope it stays nice!

    Lilac Blue, I'm so pleased your surgery went well and I hope your recovery will be good and comfortable. A friend of mine had surgery last May and ran 10k yesterday in Edinburgh, and she stayed positive which it sounds like you are too.

    Like Billie and Jennie, I too have an ordinary phone, just for calls and texts, and no internet access or I'd never get anything done as I spend more than enough time on the internet but hubbs has a phone that takes pics, internet access etc and if I was desperate when we're out, I could use it, but try not to. I take pics with a little digital camera and my newest one looks like a phone as it's slim and flat with a touchscreen and it zooms without popping out!

    How lovely to see you LB. Fingers crossed you get the green light. I hope the Good Doctors (Mayo & Kermode) kept you entertained during your hospital stay.

    Hi Simon, Team and Wonderful Bloggers,

    Thank you so much for the well wishes and kindness. I'm recovering and surgery went well. I may go home tomorrow. Need to get just a bit more display independence and then the green light.

    Happy Belated Birthday Viking - queen of one liners!

    It's different to listen to S&M film reviews and DT from hospital. It's more intense and has my attention, that is for sure.
    Thank you again for your support and compassion,
    LB, x

    Morning all,

    Was a lovely day here yesterday but now we are back to the wet stuff!

    Jennie, your garden sounds wonderful, well done to the Mr and friend, especially like the critters hideout!

    Shona, I have a very nice fruity phone but have to admit it has a simple ring tone that sounds like...well, a phone! I don't go in for songs and whatnot but The Rubettes is a big improvement on some that you hear.

    Sal, great bargain on the petunias! Now all you have to do is get round to planting them all!! (If it were me there would be sitting in their pots making me feel guilty for ages afterwards)

    Billie, I've had the disappearing post nonsense too and it is most frustrating, seems such a palaver to write in word first but if needs must ....

    Anyoo, hope everyone had a great Monday and yours gets better, Mo, after the coffee incident!

    See you over the page.

    When I said 'C&P' in first sentence of #117 I actually meant just the Copy bit. The Paste bit comes later.

    OK chumsters ... this 'disappearing post' thingy

    Has not happened to me but then I usually take precautions, like C&P my post after I've 'Preview' ed it - just in case it doesn't post. [By the way - I always preview] When I press 'Post Comment' and the little wheely turny thing seems to be going on for ages - I clear the posting box by refreshing the page or just logging out and in again. Then I try again with the post I've saved.

    So when you say 'disappeared' - have your words actually posted in here - and then when you check back they've gone. Or do they actually never appear?


    Confused of South Wilts but trying to be helpful

    Hope you are going to make the most of such a beautiful day, Billie.

    I don't seem to be suffering from disappearing post syndrome.

    Should have waited for cBzz after all. Knocked over my coffee, fortunately in the kitchen area. Have been down on hands & knees cleaning & drying the floor. What a great way to start the week ;-)

    Good Morning All

    It is a beautiful one - terrific blue sky - and it's warm already. Could be a scorcher.

    Re - Disappearing posts. I'm stupid really. If there is a likelihood of it happening - and there is - and if I really want my post to be read - I should do it in Word. Then, if it does vanish at least I'd be able to copy it again.

    Live and learn ...............
