That's for the one Spaniard who's had a peek as to what's going on here.
Be warned, the Second Ashes Test is underway at Lords so Test Match Special is on. Blowers in fine fettle talking about pigeons, cranes and strawberries.
I've been shopping. For shorts. I live in shorts in the summer but have a problem with pocketage. Keys, phone, iPod, money, fags, lighter. Not easy in two pockets. And one pocket had given up the ghost in my old shorts. Pocket number two gave up yesterday, not surprising given it had to do all the work.
So, as per, go to shop that sells shorts, buy shorts, leave. But it would seem all that is available is either Sponge Bob Square Pants shorts or ones that would go perfectly with white socks and sandals. And the amount of pockets is poor. Looks like I'm taking a pair of scissors to an old pair of jeans.
I'm ignoring the cricket 'cos England have made a woeful start.
It's Tramlines Festival in Sheffield this weekend. If anything though there's just too much going on. Gotta be something in the region of 400 acts across about 40 venues. Planning who to see, where and when is a logistical nightmare. I've decided to just pick 2 bands I really want to see and work out the rest when I'm there. I promised to take Cherry Blossom but it could get messy.
Just found out I'm on The Leadmill guest list for tomorrow though. That's a bonus and saves too much thinking. And we all know I love a guest list!
I've done it again!!! Too much blogging and not enough concentrating on the oven. Cheese and onion crispbakes burnt.
The good news is the temperature control on the shower is moving again and no longer on a permanent gonna take my skin off 45 degrees.
Sick Note Tez (Terry Dunn) joined me on today's show for the Do It Unplugged session. A couple of new songs and quality stuff they were too. He's becoming an angry old man.
I'm off to try out this shower and hope that England don't lose any more wickets while I'm up there.
