A Golfing Hero...

Chris Evans | 12:22 UK time, Friday, 21 May 2010

Here it is, the long awaited picture of Brucie on the golf course:


(left - right: Chris Hollins, David Howell, Bruce Forsyth, CLP)

Thanks for all the kind wishes with regards to my wife Tash and the unfortunate and unexpected predicament which befell her this week.

She really wasn't very well at all on Wednesday night but miraculously after some fast and clever work by those genius people in the hospital - you know the ones we can never figure out how to thank properly, she's now out of danger.

The incredible thing is that from being so poorly just a couple of days ago, she is well on the way to making a full recovery and other than the need for plenty of r 'n r over the next month or so she is 100 % back in the game.

But my goodness me doesn't the odd dose of morphine make for some racy conversations?

Lots of love dudes of the blog.

    Ah jayzus 'ave bin' talkin' to meself on the last blog. I'll 'ave to see if I can slash an' plaster it.

    Any road up. Nice 'at, Christoff. An' looka that. Not only in the illustrious company a Brucie, but The Man In The Moon lookin' over your shoulder. How lucky is THAT.


    Right. 'Ang on. I've me tongue 'angin' out like a right biff wit concentratin', let's see if I can do it..

    Chris, huge big hugs to Tash, hope she's restored back to rude and gorgeous health presto pronto; and if she's got any a them tablets left, send 'em my way would yous. That's just for me, you inderstand, not for droppin' into Renee's tea; herself doesn't need medicatin' to come out wit inappropriate comments to doctors.

    And another for little Noah, who must be wonderin' where his mummy is as 'e creosotes the fence an' generally does all the Man stuff around the house.

    Funny yous shoulda had that dream. I myself had a marvellous one, just as I dropped off at around 6am (woke around 5 realised I didn't need leap outa the scratcher an' hurtle off to the Dingle Peninsula or some such Commercial Hot-Spot, so flung back the curtains, opened the window, puffed up me pillows, read me book, dropped off again.. marvellous). Anyway, there I was, flyin' me bi-plane to Paris, wearin' a bright blue swimsuit that kept fallin' down, en route to a beauty pageant (???) and accompanied by a little fat ginger kid whom I was counsellin' for his obesity problem. Suddenly all the lights went on in the cockpit an' just as I was about to push the ejector seat button (which woulda bin' most attractive upon landin' in that swimsuit) I realised the GD was callin' me.. bugger. I've always wanted to jump outa plane. An' natch, the swimsuit woulda doubled up as a parachute. D'oh.

    Any road. The Cream Tea debate. Now look. That's rubbish puttin' the jam on one side, cream on t'other an' sandwichin' 'em together. 'Ow are yous meant to get your gob round it? One attempt an' there's projectile cream all up your nose, down your cleavage an' on the dog's back, an' yous finish up wit a ricked neck an' lockjaw.

    There's only one way to eat a scone wit jam an' cream. That's wit 2 large plates, the groutin' trowel an' whilst wearin' them paper overalls the police wear at crime scenes. Oh yes. An' keep your cap handy to swat the ruddy wasps.

    Hi Chris: glad you had such a great day at the golf. I love Brucie too.

    Chris, please tell Tash that we have all been asking for her today, and that we send our love. I don't doubt for one moment that you will be looking after her and Noah beautifully. xx

    Gail: I did say it before, however I love repeating myself - have a great holiday!

    AS: thanks for your wee message. I was just being in "idiot mode" yesterday - I'm my own worst enemy.

    Clodagh: bless, I hope you moley thingy will be removed with ease. You are just so hilarious, such a tonic.

    Marjie: when you say "bye for now", I hope that just means until later today!

    JG: I have been keeping an eye on your progress - glad to see that things are getting better for you.

    Crumpy: Your hair is gorgeous ... it could be natural!

    Just want to say that I'm mystified, lovely friendly post from someone who was with CLP & Brucie yesterday been modded!

    Didn't want to remark but couldn't help it!

    Anyway, hope you are well and don't work too much on a lovely day.


  • Comment number 20.

    Oh how much betterer can my day get - 1st on the blog and a tweet back from CLP - Ta v muchly CLP you've made me smile!

    Right back to work, salivating at what I have just bought for tea - gonna make lamb koftas with greek salad, humous and pitta bread.....


  • Comment number 21.

    MK - we know that it probably is a nice friendly post, however (as proved yesterday) it may not be which is why the modders look at it first.

    There - I wasn't going to comment either.

    We would all every one of us become upset or even paranoid if our innocent posts continued to be moderated.

    It's a natural psychological reaction!

    Just 2 hours to go now AS - going slow isn't it.............
    I'm joining the CBA brigade - although it's clouded over here so only have hazy sunshine.

    A2A tonight, they reckon the writers have left the ending - sort of open. Well they would wouldn't they with a zillion folk tuning in - got to be another series - or a one off special or something.

    As you were - clouds lost - sun back out - may just have a 10 minute wander round the garden and survey the weeds.

    I wasn't having a pop at him, merely commenting that someone has grouped him with three very tall playing partners, thereby making him appear even smaller than he is.

    Hey I even voted for team Cola when they were on SCD!


  • Comment number 33.

    Can I join the CBA club as well?

    I've prepped a report, but can't be bothered to finish it off :( It needs to go out next week, along with 2 others!

    We've got a few more clouds about than before, but the sun's still shining. I took a photo round the back of the office at lunchtime, as the Quays looked quite beautiful, will post it on FB if I remember!

    Really looking forward to some wine when I get home!

    Andy bless yous. Forgiven.

    Actually I was only joshin', sweetheart. Am a trial-size meself, see, known to the Brother-Outlaw as Archie Andrews. Huh.

    Harsh but fair. I wouldn't mind but the older I get, the more I get them ventriloquists' dummy lines from me mouth to me chin, jayzus.

    Anyway. The said big tall streak a p*** rugger-bugger an' meself do make a rather spectacular Hylda Baker an' Cynthia at fancy dress parties so all is well.

    Ah so that's what Tony Blair's up to these days.

    Afternoon and isn't it splendid. A whole weekend of fab weather on the cards - all chores and work-like activities are cancelled forthwith chez Boleyn. And have been teaching all my Friday pm infants "Zippedy Doo Dah" to get us all in the mood.

  • Comment number 48.

    Ah tanks JG.

    Just once I appear to have timed things right. Usually am tearin' around like a bucket a ferrets in the sunshine, then the minute I get one foot back in Blighty the ruddy sun goes in. Still. At least nobody's gettin' any nasty shocks.

    Am rememberin' the time, during a heatwave, I was out in me garden in me bikini, rubber gloves an' wellies, clearing out the fishpond, as you do; when it suddenly struck me. The solution to a particularly tricky conundrum, concerning a bridal veil I'd been working on. Said veil was embroidered and slightly heavy, and I'd been wrestling with how best to anchor it upon the coiffed head of the bride without makin' 'er look like the aftermath a Pancake Tuesday on Tiswas. So. There I am, stood on the patio lookin' in the big mirror in the lounge, in the leopardy bikini an' wellies, fastenin' the said veil on to me head with a couple a flowery combs, when there's a knock knock behind me.

    Standin' lookin' terrified at the gate was the young VW mechanic I'd forgotten I'd had to summon to collect me car, after me cat 'ad got its tail caught in the fan-belt an' whipped it off.

    I've seldom seen a car mechanic move so fast.

    The veil worked, mind.

    Disappointed with the lack of interesting coloured golfing jumpers, although Chris Hollins seems to have come wearing enough colours for everyone else as well.

    In theory I'm slaving my fingers to the bone in the office until 5, but since I'm now the only one left in the room and nobody else will notice.................... :o)

    Seza: thanks for letting us know that Chris had added to his blog.

    Chris: bless you for posting a wee message on your blog re: Tash. Yes, the doctors are incredible. Once they know what's wrong, and they get the drugs into the patient, it's astonishing how fast recovery can be. I really did laugh this morning at you saying that Tash was coming out with some embarrassing stuff!

    Debs: checked out Google - ahh, the memories!

    mtd: I will give the game a wee try!

    To everyone: thanks for the "chat" and company this week - I have really enjoyed all our conversations.

    Thanks for the update CLP. More hugs and best wishes to Tash.

    Clodagh, I have said it before and I will say it again. You are absolutely brilliant. Your posts have me in fits of giggles all the time. It is just as well I work in an office by myself or I would probably be locked up by now. I hope CLP reads them out to Tash. That is guaranteed to cheer her up but less of the "Rips in a tankini". That is just TOO much information!

    glad she is on the mend CLP but make sure she does do the r'n'r for the month if thats what the docs said - us girls are prone to "not listening" and think we are up to more than really we should be. Get her set up on twitter and we will keep her busy responding to our messages with her feet firmly UP!

    It's lovely son-in-laws birthday tomorrow and Mr CSN's on Monday, so all the family will be coming.

    Oh dear, I can't possibly keep up anymore!

    CLP, hope Tash is truly on the mend, and thanks for posting in a difficult time! Make sure she does as she is told!! xxx

    Sorry, for the absence, Mr JG did another BBQ, and very nice it was too! Salmon soaked in "stuff" I missed what it was, done nicely in foil, and pasta, salad, and florida salad, like coleslaw, but brilliant! Hadn't seen it for years, but mentioned once that I liked it, and he found it!

    AND, despite doing not-a-lot all week, he has excelled himself today! Dug the manky border out, tackled the demon stinging nettle, and cut the lawn!! As well as the shopping!!

    AND he emptied the dishwasher!!

    He's in the good books now by far, but I think it might have been to do with him going off for the weekend on his brother's stag do!!

    As long as he carries the washing basket down for me tomorrow before he leaves, he'll be OK with me!

    No vino collapso tonight. Am still on yellow alert for baby.

    I've given up on the ironing. If no baby appears overnight, I'm off to Newcastle tomorrow with man in the cupboard. He's off to see Mark Knopfler in Glasgow tonight so will be catching up with him tomorrow.

    Hello all, I'm on the gin but can I still join in?

    Been a rubbish week for me, but it's Friday and the weekend's bright (but not orange...).

    JG, lovely to see that Mr JG's keeping you happy - that's lovely that he found the Florida salad for you.

    CSN good luck with the BBQ situation, have you got something to nibble on in the meantime?

    Hi Beez and Annie xx

    Thanks for the offer Seza, but I don't like them either!! Sweeties would be safe in your house hehe. Beez, if you're not having them I wouldn't say no...

    I'm getting there Annie x Sorry I'm a bit out of the loop - are you waiting for a grandchild? Did you not have one recently, or is that my useless memory playing tricks on me again????
