Way, way too many buns. They're magnificent of course and the smell of the hit and cross variety is a highlight of Easter but they taunt and mock me from the bread bin. They call to me in the night and I am weak. Soon they will be all gone and fruit and dull breakfasts will return but until then...just one more packet to go...

And as I write 893 posts to the blog while I have been elsewhere, so my guess was hopelessly out. Thanks for keeping it all ticking over so splendidly and Ryan and Richard for doing the shows. I have been very cultural and been at numerous exhibitions, galleries and whatnot. You'd have been impressed (although asking for discount at the Viking exhibition at the British Museum in London on the grounds that my DNA is Viking didn't work out too well).

Book club today with Claire North's The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August. She's not really Claire North but actually Catherine North. I'm not sure why it's been shrouded in mystery and why it is a secret at all but as you know writers are very strange. It's a memorable read. What i can tell you is that Harry August is on his deathbed, nearing the end of his eleventh life, when a little girl appears at his bedside. "I nearly missed you, Dr August," she says. "I need to send a message. It has come down from child to adult passed back through generations from a thousand years forward in time. The world is ending and we cannot prevent it. So now it's up to you."

You'll be hearing a lot about this book, starting today!

And I think we should do FOOTBALL MANAGER oldies today as David Moyes gets the boot today at Manchester United. You might have read/heard/seen something about it. I avoid football stories normally but this is a big one so tunes please! Assuming you all remember how this works...

Have a top Tuesday, see you at 5.
