Well hello again. The old blog has been humming along quite happily I see in my absence. Maybe I'm not really needed; you know what you're doing, just get on with it...

Not really.

How lovely to be back, a sunny day beckons and Drivetime back in full effect (as kids used to say). I have spent the week in Suffolk gently steering the good ship HMS REVISION into calm waters/onto the rocks. Then a little geocaching and quite a few chips, as is normal for these times. I'd like to tell you lots of tales about showbiz days with celebs and highlife, but I have none. Not a single one. I'll try harder.

Today I am filming some jolly radio banter with Bob, Tony, Ken and Jo to go on the website-tell you more tomorrow.

I trust all has been well in my absence and that Paddy was charming everyone (even if comedians need to stop taking our jobs. I mean am I likely to do a week of stand up at Wembley? I don't think so).

We are back with a Radio 2 Book Club choice which is The Children Of The Jacaranda Tree by Sahar Delijani. It's a powerful tale about the revolution in Iran and you can download a chapter while you are here should you fancy it. It is Sahar's debut novel and you can hear her tonight after 6.

And CROCODILE oldies please as their numbers rocket. Australia has a croc population higher than at anytime since 1971. And it is different, you have to say.

Have an encouraging and smiley Monday, see you after 5.

    #72 Jennie - just a quickie: I haven't had it done, but one of my best friends has been having her eyelashes done for years and swears by it......

    Jennie, eyelashes, sorry, no help. I used to have beautiful thick long eyelashes when I was younger but the heavy make up of gothdom put an end to that, or that's what I'm balming. I don't wear any make-up now, I really can't be bothered, and I'm not sure I'd fancy having my eyelashes tinted.

    Hazel, I like cryptic crosswords but I don't buy the Times.

    Oooh Jennie! Hark at you lady getting your eyes all tinted. Never had that done and don't wear mascara either.

    Good morning everyone

    Farmers around here are watering their crops, so a continuing dry spell must be ahead as they have always got their eye on the weather, feels like summer has most definitely arrived!

    Jennie I hope you find you're not allergic to the dye for your eyelashes. The only person I have heard say she gets hers done is Denise Welch on Loose Women and I think some time back she had her eyebrows tattooed in a dark colour... no idea why the eyebrows!

    Hazel, my husband is the one for cryptic crosswords - the more regularly you do them the easier they become. I quite enjoy trying them if I'm not doing anything else!

    I'm waffling here and the blog's probably up by now.... I wonder if it will be Coronation oldies!!

    Morning all - hope your weather is as glorious as it is here!

    No advice on the eyelashes front sorry Jenny - but enjoy your sitting in a chair day. I love those (so long as it's not the dentist's chair). Hope you've got a good book or a crossword.

    Anyone on here like the Times cryptic crossword?

    Off to unpack oodles of boxes - the unglamorous side of bookselling.

    Have a good day all.

    Good morning everyone, and what a splendidly fine and beautiful morning it is in these parts!

    Such a lovely walk with the hounds this morning. Everything seems to have woken up all at once and there's a race on to see what can make itself seen the most. I do love the leopardsbane flowers sticking their bright yellow heads above everything else like little suns shining on the mass of green. And the sweet cicely and cow parsley are doing a good battle between them, they're taller than me on certain parts of the walk. The few bluebells (and pink ones) that we have are starting to get a bit lost but their gorgeous perfume gives them away, if you manage to catch it above the oniony aroma coming from the carpets of ramsons.

    Pure delight.

    There's lots more too but I don't waffle for too long, not this early in the day.

    Oh what a beautiful morning....... (wish I could draw musical notes)

    Good Morning and thank you Scotch Git! I'll listen later when I'm at home. Blogging is tricky enough without clicking on music links here ;(((
