Cool, damp, autumnal. School run complete; main topic of conversation was how much they didn't like Nick Grimshaw's record of the week (given that I insisted I had radio 1 on when my dad drove me to school, I can hardly complain). Now it didn't do much for me but I daren't say 'this is a bit repetitive' or it's not as good as Al Stewart' for fear of ridicule so I just listen to the youthful analysis. And silently agreed. I admire 'Grimmy' as he has good hair and a fearless radio style and hope he's a huge success. When the school run ceases-which will be in a few weeks time-I might not hear too much Radio 1, so I'm making the most of it.

Meantime, I'm off to see the Superman movie this morning which is lovely way to pass an hour or two before Drivetime kicks off again. Actor Dan Stephens in today, Matthew Crawley of course from Downton Abbey and he stars in a new movie 'Summer in February' alongside Dominic Cooper and Emily Browning. It's about a real life love triangle between artist Alfred Munnings (Cooper) his friend Gilbert Evans (Dan) and the girl they both loved Florence Carter Wood (Emily obvs). And another star of the film is God's own county Cornwall where most of the story plays out. You'll be booking your week their before the film is out. Even if it'll be cold and wet.

And can we do LOVE TRIANGLE oldies? Can't decide between him and him/her and her. Or even her and him, who knows. Will this work? Let's see. Don't think we've done this before so relying on your ingenuity....

Have a heroic and super-powered Tuesday, see you after 5.

    Amelia, I thought that as Simon and his guest had mentioned the name 'Florence' a few times, it might be rather nice if Florence sent in a 3-worder, but didn't expect to hear it read out! :o)

    Not quite made it to bed yet -

    Flo - I imagine like me, Shona & Hazel are super-smart - or perhaps the small clues of Florence & sending in a 3-worder with a photo attached - of a beach - gave you away (albeit we are more used to hearing your Sunday name in such circumstances) but I assumed at once it was you.

    I am sorry Shona - I laughed at gazza's post ;-)

    #127 Correction... I posted the above pics in the wrong order... the second one is where Lucie was standing on the 'island', not wanting to move in case she got her feet wetter than they already were!

    #113 Hazel and #114 Shona... haha... how did you both know the 'Sandcastle Under Construction' 3-words was me? I sent in a picture of some of the Guides on the beach last night who were making a sandcastle, for a laugh, but didn't think it would be read out!

    #116 I wonder if the smallest wizard has been going around stapling everything in the house with his new stapler whilst eating his 12 bags of crisps!

    #117 Hazel, thanks for liking my pics of a part of Scotland you like... although the ones from last night were taken over a very small area, aiming the camera in different directions, hence the light and dark as it was about 8.45pm and the sun had almost set.

    #118 Erica, I'm glad you're still around, even if you sound like you've been smoking Woodbines and I hope your thoat will clear by tomorrow. Be careful with the knife tied onto the broom handle... (why?)

    #123 Pinball Wizardess and #81 Amelia I think we would have to eat tons of apples and pips to be poisoned by the amount of cyanide in the pips but I suppose it would affect a small dog like a Terrier much faster than a large Labrador. It's more important not to let dogs eat grapes, raisins, sultanas or human chocolate than a few apple cores.

    I am off to bed now having been listening to Janice Long and joined in with her chat, so will say night night to anyone who is still up whilst thinking about Waity Katy and whether or not she's a Nana yet!

    A couple of doggy pics from tonight's walk... Lucie doesn't like deep water but she was following me across the rocky areas at low tide as I could see lots of my favourite Oystercatchers and was trying to get close to them without them seeing me and in this first picture Lucie was standing on an 'island' and wasn't sure how to get to where I was without getting wet feet so she stood for quite a while until she had plucked up enough courage to paddle to the next rock!

    Erica - glad to read you seem ok - silly woman - I am not sure it would be the blog I would be turning to in a medical emergency - have you seen some of the nonsense we post - although at least you can still make Blackadder jokes - but seek appropriate medical help if you require it!

    I have been pondering twitter tonight and how it gives a tiny insight into folks lives we wouldn’t have in any other way. I follow loads of bbc folk - mainly radio people as that is what I love - sadly the Radio 4 newsreader Rory Morrison died this evening - he’d had cancer for a long time - my feed is full of people expressing their sadness - both those who knew him in real life and those like me who just listened to him on the radio and have followed him through his treatment. His tweets meant he was someone I know a little about rather than just a voice on the radio. I like that.

    This is of course a terribly sad example but there is much joy to be had too - the slightly surreal tweets between Rev Richard Coles and his partner for example, being able to tell an author you loved his book where you would never write a letter or even send an email and of course reading the daily missives from you fine folk I follow from here.

    I’m not sure where I’m going with this but it has been rattling around in my head and there is no better place than here to let it out. Perhaps just where I started - that I love twitter for the insight it gives into other people’s lives but at the same time (well for the folk I follow anyway) is the antithesis of hideous celebrity culture. And how else would I know that Simon might be a little late tomorrow - he has 23 million soft white rolls to distribute - to celebrate the wittertainment podcast being the most downloaded podcast in the history of the world ever or some such.

    Anyway it has been a busy day for me - well done to all those who got a mention and 3-worders - proper catchup tomorrow.

    Update. Eyes still stinging and watery, northern comedian effect wheeze subsiding, spots appeared on face! Now attempting pencils up nose and knickers on head to escape nightmare :-S

    Thanks again Flo for your technical jiggery pokery. Love the colours in your photos, and particularly liked the 2nd to last one of the dogs' sandcastle. What clever hounds.

    Missed most of show but congrats to everyone who got menshes etc. Will try and listen tomorrow if nothing's happened to my ears by then :-O

    Night night all x

    Just off to bed - was up late last night with friends chatting about sofas and popping dogs bottoms and I am, as a result, quite tired. Before I go, I just wanted to say that I have listened up to the end of the song by Bastille (I like it) on the show and will tune back in tomorrow. Congrats though, to Autumn_Gale and MollyC and to Florence for your 'top castle' 3 worder. Sallie certainly liked it didn't she?!

    A couple of Parish notices:

    #57 - Julia41 - lovely to see you pooping by. Make sure you enjoy every precious moment of Little Girl's last 6 weeks at home - take lots of photos!

    #61 & #95 - Florence - Boy, I wish I could take photos like you. Do you enter competitions at all? You definitely should - even if you are put off by the standard of the Countryfile calendar comp (and you shouldn't be) there must be other more local ones you can try? Go for it!

    #64 - Vildeen - I do hope that you managed to get out and about with your friends today, especially to the beach. It's not much fun being cooped up inside with guests when the weather outside is bad.

    #81 - amelia - perhaps the pips popped out in the bird's beak which is why you didn't see them?! I always eat my apple cores. Hoping I don't keel over in the near future as a result.

    #103 - Stressed Erica - Yikes! Hope you are OK. Oh, phew! #118 - you are ok. That tin hat looks good on you.....

    Off to do my daily round up email to Mr H. It was his birthday last week. We sent him a parcel containing lots of jelly babies and a copy of the 'Simon Mayo Confessions' book to lighten the mood a little. Thank you, Simon, for signing it back in February when we met you at the South Bank Centre. Mr H was delighted.

    Righto, really going now. Hope everyone has had a good night (especially Mumma of the Mumma, the Mumma and the baby of the Mumma x)

    Have you got a hat you can hide under, Wizardess? ;0)

    'Tis nearly Friday. Shona ;0))

    Be good to see you around these parts tomorrow.

    Off to bed soon, methinks

    See you tomorrow dear bloggies (hopefully +1, eh Katy??)
