Foggy morning here, primed and ready to go already. Hope the weekend was good for all bloggers. I spent most of it in a ditch. Or under a bridge. Maybe wading through marshland or staring up at a tree with a gale and driving rain doing their best to knock me over. This, in case you hadn't realised, is geogaching. Child 3 and I were to be found tramping around the Suffolk countryside, phone in hand, looking for caches buried/stuck/hidden in trees/telegraph poles/benches. I knew nothing of this world but can report that I suspect I'll be spending quite a few more murky, dank weekends hunting for tiny logbooks to sign. Adding to the pleasure was the company of Nigel Barden and clan providing extra eyes and hands. And the promise of a well chosen beer and wine selection to come.
So today we have the book club choice of 'Citadel' by Kate Mosse, another terrific yarn based in her beloved Carcassonne in south west France. It's set mainly in world war 2 with an all-female resistance group, but uses this time-slip idea again with some of the book set in AD 342. There's a chapter here while you're with us so you can see what she has done. Kate will be live from 6 and the web chat from 6.30.
And oldies please for SAINTS. The pope announced 7 new ones yesterday so your musical suggestions welcome.
Have a straightforward and hassle free Monday, see you after 5.

    Thanks for the advice Zoe. Unfortunately anything "significantly" earlier means I'd be doing it from Work, which I'd prefer not to do. As work's work and when I finish, it's time to enjoy.

    I think certainly being aware of a cut off time may be useful, but...

    Well done Arthur Loaf and Sir Cumference on the menshes.

    #77 P.J - You want to be posting your oldie suggestions a bit earlier, if possible, to be in with a chance of selection. We think before 1 p.m-ish, but if Simon is reading this, maybe he would be so kind as to furnish us with a definitive cut off point for oldie suggestions?

    Gill - I was sorry to hear of the upset with your mum, I hope you get an official diagnosis for her as soon as possible, so that you can get access to some help.

    We had a bit of a to do with my nan last week, let's call it a storm in a commode! We can laugh about it now, because it had a happy ending, but it did cause her some upset at the time. Basically, there was an old man with dementia who kept wandering into my nan's bedroom, and she complained about it, as did my mum and aunty. Then one day last week, the old man came into her room and did a number 1 in her commode. My nan was very upset, and shouted for one of the staff, then my aunty and mum found out, and complained again. The staff acted swiftly, and moved the man to another area of the residential home where he could be monitored more closely. My nan has been wanting an en-suite room since she moved in there, and now she has one. Turns out commode man had an en-suite room, and when they moved him, my nan bagged his old room!

    Have a good evening all. x

    Well done Sir Cumference on your tune... I have to admit that without any deep thinking, I didn't understand how the last Saint song had any connection with seven new saints having been chosen.. I can't even remember what the title was!

    I think Lily the Mohawk (sic?) was one of the beatified. Then there is Lily the Pink or anything by Lily Allen. Albeit a tad tenuous, there's Adam & the Ants (The Human Beings and the Title track from Kings of the Wild Frontier and Mohawk from Prince Charming being examples.

    I loved living on the West Coast a few years back. No one ever locked their houses. Not sure that would still be the case today.....

    Enjoy the show everyone!

    #72 - Good King John - there are some real pieces of work out there. Thank goodness your workmen went out and caught them.

    A neighbour's son was burgled a while ago and then again last week. The police said that what they do is wait for a while, so that the goods they have pinched are replaced and then then go back and pinch them again! Little souls..............
