Sniff 'n the tears.

Good morning and happy Mondays all round. Even if this posting is written through a veil of tears. I went to the Edinburgh Book Festival on Saturday and at Kings Cross I sneezed. I spent the whole journey north with a cold that gathered speed so that by the time I reached Edinburgh I was in full manflu mode. My presentation/talk/reading was punctuated by sniffs and dabs, a pathetic sight. In the signing afterwards (can't read the blog posts at the moment but this may well have been discussed above-a wee bloggers convention was held! Good to meet you!) I'm sure I must have spread my London cold far and wide so apologies to all. But I had a great time anyway. I love meeting the people you write for and broadcast to; fine folk indeed.
Today we welcome Jon Snow to Drivetime to talk about Chanel 4's coverage of the Paralympics which starts on Wednesday but Jon has a programme which features Clare Balding Jonathan Edwards and Jimmy Carr(!). Jon's been the face of C4 news since 1989 and always essential viewing/listening .
And oldies today for a HAPPY MONDAY as 'researchers' have 'found' that the blue Monday feeling is a myth. People's moods are no worse on a Monday than any other day bar Friday. Apparently. The Blue Monday is a myth but don't tell Fats Domino or New Order. Just remember that as you trudge around the place today. It's a myth. Stop it.
Have a smart and astute Monday, see you after 5
