Peter Donaldson

Peter Donaldson - once the voice of nuclear Armageddon - was this week the voice of Your News, our bulletin of events in listeners' lives.

Here's the script he read:

The young man who spent six months is jail for cutting my throat at the end of July will be back living with me in May: brilliant.

My daughter has a cold so I have been breastfeeding a lot. Good job too, as I woke up at 4am to a fire next door and called out the fire service.

The frogs have been busy in the pond only for their offspring to be eaten by hungry, winter-dopey fish.

I'm going to to have new knees very soon, it will be great!

Remembered how glorious it is to sing my heart out.

I've just qualified as a first aider at work!

Approached by chap who wants to view some of our 50-year-old documents with the intention of launching a new search for sunken treasure.

At 10.15 in the evening, I looked out of my sitting room window to see the local poacher and his dog heading for the pheasant-rich farmland.

Told the staff that we won't have to make anybody redundant at present, but there are unlikely to be any pay rises this year.

I couldn't face seeing my mother, who has Alzheimer's disease, because I was scared.

Here I am at 75 and have just met an uncle for the first time! He has photos of the grandfather who I never knew.

Near Milton Keynes I met Dr Johnson and David Garrick, who were walking to London; together we admired a shopping trolley in the canal. (What? It's all explained here.)
