Cloudy, cool, heat promised. Coffee hot, caffeine limit reached by 8am. Full house, all asleep, I'm the only source of movement and likely to remain so for the foreseeable future. Later, when all is buzzing, I'll be the first to retire and read my Radio 2 Book Club choice 'The Son' by Philip Meyer. Rocknroll! Actually I keep reading the same chapter and falling asleep. This is an issue for me, not Mr Meyer. You can hear him on Tuesday next week, not Monday as I am, as I might have mentioned, at child 1's graduation do but it gives you another day to give the free chapter a go.

Movie show back to its traditional, non-tennis, 2 hour format today. Guillermo Del Toro is our guest as the top director responsible for Pacific Rim, one of this summer's biggest, noisiest blockbusters. Robots hitting aliens is the deal and in someone else's hands might be unbearable but with GDT (as he is not usually referred to) you still actually care about what happens. Just take ear plugs!

Then the ARF kicks of and I believe your opening year of requirement is 1988.

Have a mellow and satisfying Friday, see you after 5

    #186 Jennie, the money for charity was being raised by golfers who were firing balls at a target in the distance whilst being 'rained on' and blown about as there was wind and fog too... if anyone else wanted to stand under it they could but that was after the golfers had finished their charity bit.

    Here's some who enjoyed getting wet! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRytgBks544

    Was it 'our' Mandy on Mr Allinson's show this morning with "Tom's Toe Tapper" at 7.30?

    Florence, I showed Mr Wren the pictures of the boys under the rain cloud and he was most impressed! What a brilliant idea....hopefully, lots of money was raised for charity.

    I like the car number plate too ... I wonder what that would cost!!

    Flo, like Billie, I still have a million and one things to do today before guests arrive tomorrow so Jimmy's bath (which takes 2 of us as he hates it) will need to wait until later.

    Good morning!

    Thank you for the flowers Billie :)

    I keep hearing people complaining about the weather. I feel like taping them and playing it back when it rains solidly for a month!!!

    I have had no sudden clear and remarkable insight into the royal baby. The only thing I am really hoping for (apart from that it is healthy and the media behave themselves with some modicum of respect) is that if it is a girl they will include 'Diana' in her name somewhere.

    Off to banish the greys. I may well be some time!

    Good morning everyone on this glorious sunny day, the birds singing happily and two pigeons gently cooing in a tree a few yards from the front door... there is one nesting in there too, so let's hope a baby pigeon might appear one of these days!

    Shona, why don't you bath Jimmy during the day then he could lay outside in the sun to dry off... or do you dry him with a hairdryer?

    Jennie, Mr Wren is lucky having you! Talking of Mr Wren, I remember a 'Richard Wren' bike racer a few years back... I wonder what happened to him!
