Well 765 wasn't far out, I'm getting better at this. Thanks for keeping the whole thing buzzing while I have been eating chips and sourdough bread. Chips are nothing new of course but this sourdough thing only started when Paul Hollywood was on the show. I don't think I'd had it before and it was love at first bite. This is bad news if you're trying to keep off the wheat. A fine sourdough loaf and some butter and that's everything sorted. With a new fabulous bakery opening just around the corner it has been a week of giving in to temptation. And a week of writing (6000 words since you asked), geocacheing, and biting, fffffffffffffffffreezing winds. I return to Drivetime, paler and doughier.
Hope things have been fine here. As I have mentioned before I can't listen to Radio 2 while on holiday so I have no idea what's been going on. Drove home with lovely Paul O"Grady (while most of you were baking by the look of things) and now Chris is welcoming me back into the fold. Book Club day today with Graeme Simison's The Rosie Project. Officially described like this: "This is a story of soul searching of different kinds and the journey in which two people go on in their quest of reaching their ultimate goals."
This does nothing to explain what it is really like. It is about Don Tillman, a socially challenged genetics professor who has decided the time has come to find a wife. He draws up meticulous plans for finding the right woman but these do not account of Rosie Jarman, who turns up and turns everything upside down. Read some of it here on the book club page to see if you fancy it. Graeme will be here from 6.
And today we should try songs about LINEN, SHEETS, DUVETS AND LAUNDRY IN GENERAL. Apparently dirty laundry is the thing we hate the most on holiday. Crisp and clean is what we want, so laundry oldies please. We're back!
Have a wise and encouraging Monday, see you after 5.
