Hello everyone not at Glastonbury! How're y'all doing? Let me hear you say Yay! We're warm and dry with access to a well upholstered mattress and a shower! Yay! Let me hear you at the back! Everyone say we don't want to eat pies and noodles all the time but just occasionally ! Yay! I have toilet paper on a roll hanging on the wall!

And so on. I'm happy to let BBC MUSIC do the the hard work for me. Jo's there so I don't have to be. Meantime back in the (dry, lovely) studio, we declare 1976 to be the year of decision. Yesterday's confession has me in the mood for some 70s heat wave nostalgia. ACDC and Van Der Graf Generator at Reading, James Callaghan becomes PM and the Sex Pistols are on Bill Grundy's TV show. What do you fancy?

Meantime I must wash my hair with hot water and a dry towel that hasn't got grass and rice all over it.

Nice.

    Good Morning All

    Me writing this post will ensure the new blog arrives...

    Hope you all had great weekends. Mine seemed to go by in a flash - I swear they're getting shorter. The Rock Choir gig was fun - our son was exhausted afterwards but quite understandably. They did 2 shows, each two hours long and with only a couple of hours break in between. And they had to learn all the songs by heart - no words or music. I'm not sure I could have managed it.

    Yesterday I did a sailing course. It was a freebie put on by the marina where we keep our boat - a WAGs day out. It was good fun. The theme of the day was "what would I do if I was out on the boat with my husband and he fell overboard". One woman said "open the champagne" but I think she was missing the point... I was quite chuffed to be complimented a couple of times by the instructor. I think I was probably the most experienced one there, but I played it down.

    Busy day at work today - don't think I'll have time to tune choose. Had more than my fair share of mentions last week though, so never mind...

    :o)

    Morning all

    Just heard the Pause for Thought guy on CE talking about an ancient word for elation in drinking coffee. I need to know that word. But I'm doing it anyway - I have an excellent cup of coffee and 30 mins left for tune choosing - now where's that new blog??

    Shona enjoy your day off - hope you're not achy from the gardening.

    Hope Monday's bearable for everyone else stuck at work - like me.

    Good morning from a sunny place.

    I expect Jennie is smiling this morning with her lovely Mr Allinson on the radio!

    I doubt there's many tickets left for the Edinburgh Castle BBC show he was talking to Alex Jones about as they've been on sale for several weeks. I'm looking forward to the Kaiser Chiefs, Smokey Robinson and Alfie Boe but didn't realise Culture Club are reforming to appear to! :o))

    I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend. I bet those at Glastonbury will be pleased to be back home away from the mud and disgusting toilets and have showers and sleep in their beds!!

    Good morning all. Mrs P and I had a fantastic time yesterday at Bannockburn Live. Yes we went back. A much happier place because of the nice weather. Great music especially Roddy Hart and Julie Fowlis. We took a packed lunch this time which was a much better idea.

    Another beautiful day in prospect here. Far too nice to be in the office.
