(05:54:49) @TeamESRacing Morning! Wishing you guys all the best today - staying on track and making at least one podium finish :)

(05:55:04) @Lindylooloo Hope you rest well when you can :)

(05:55:16) @vobes Morning Mr Vobes :)

(05:56:02) @AuntieJammy Good morning, earlybird :)

(05:57:03) Good morning, and happy Sunday. Looks like it'll be a damp one all day. Charging myself with coffee in an attempt at a running start :D

(05:57:30) @AuntieJammy I'm up and nearly awake.. you? :) Making coffee if you want some...

(05:59:00) @peterowen1 Have a great one nonetheless!

(07:00:47) @vobes Moderately good, thanks, Mr V - much more perky than yesterday, at least! :D

(07:01:08) @Barlie40 Mornin Jim :) I wish you a great day too!

(07:01:48) @miz_shake68 Much chirpier than yesterday.. I've had a little bit of early-morning studio time.. nice to have a tinker (and coffee!) You OK?

(07:02:23) @shona_1966 morning, sparkly! :)

(07:03:17) @brennig Why not catch all the water and store it somewhere? We can make our own reservoir :D

(07:04:13) @sharonlangridge Not a day goes by when I don't get the odd scathe here and there.. Yes. I like that. (Morning)

(07:04:40) @shona_1966 I'm still in my jammies & dressing gown.. and I've got coffee.. could be a lot worse! :D You?

(07:06:17) @miz_shake68 Eeep! I hope your netball expectations remain optimistic!

(07:06:29) @shona_1966 YAY!

(07:06:50) @shona_1966 Unfortunately, hotel rooms rarely do good coffee.. hope there's better at breakfast! :D x

(07:08:11) @sharonlangridge Same to you, Sharon! Hope there are some fabulous moments :)

(07:13:06) @dt90spt Morning dude. I've been riffing :)

(07:29:11) @dt90spt Yeah - early doors. Busy day ahead: church, car racing, mud & hardcore reading up / retrospecting ;) How's maison DT this morning?

(07:30:01) @vobes You too! Hoping for a break in the weather :)

(07:34:58) @JQP74 Morning. I am whatever the opposite of handsome is today :D Have a splendid one!

(07:35:22) @brennig Touché!

(07:36:33) @debsylee Apocalyptic weather conditions? I am ~so~ going to have to use that phrase :D Mornin' :)

(07:43:51) @JQP74 You too!

(09:00:45) @dt90spt Fabulous :) Lots of running around - are you joining them? (I never managed to avoid minor injuries so have long given up :D)

(11:32:44) A bit of a damp squib to start today's #BTCC races at #Thruxton. No great surprise, though.. all a bit damp and slippy out there.

(11:33:25) @Tactless_Claire I mostly lose.

(11:34:15) RT @Tone_720: LOL thanks to @TopGearBabe for sharing this on the Other Place http://t.co/udOO2G5u #BTCC #Thruxton Standard issue for Ra ...

(11:34:47) RT @RobJD: Red Flag = 2nd place & podium for @TeamESRacing @newshamracing :) nice one, great result! #BTCC #TeamLuton

(11:50:24) @caritas730 If I'm driving a boat, yes ;)

(11:53:18) @mostlygeordie It's the fuse used to light a cannon, I believe (wow... I knew that!) How's you? Keeping warm & dry I hope :)

(11:54:20) @mostlygeordie I do like a nice collection of boxes. Perfect weather for a trip to the tidy tip :)

(11:54:42) @PervyWilbury Uhuhyeah! :)

(12:12:04) @caritas730 good point well made! Just don't do it at Thruxton.. they don't seem capable of getting cars off the grass ;) #towtruckfail

(12:12:26) @PlainTalkingHR At the moment :) Off out on an adventure later, though. Wet weather gear ahoy! ;)

(17:59:44) A fantastic afternoon in the woods with the children, @dt90spt & family - great fun (and mud!) Lots of bluebells, too. And sticks. And mud.

(18:00:59) Catching up with the damp races 2 and 3 of #BTCC at #Thruxton (and mud, no doubt) - some drama I am fairly sure.

(19:02:10) @fionajc3 I have no idea what one is.

(19:03:29) @smartie999 Errrrr sort of. But with less movement. And, in some cases, music. @dt90spt

(19:04:06) @fandrews It was :) I would recommend it! @dt90spt

(19:06:22) @fionajc3 Oh I see. Well, I also think she has a silly name. I am clearly not the target market :)

(19:08:53) @Dappydoris Such dedication :) I hope you're doing OK lovely x

(19:57:35) @fandrews Wonderful! I love the river and the bluebells :) Gorgeous! Here is the wood we went to :) http://t.co/VYzSsBPA

(19:59:59) @Dappydoris Some seriously welly walking! This doesn't do the mud justice.. :D http://t.co/bWIjmkKC

(20:08:45) @mostlygeordie I have cracking of similar sorts to do, too.

(20:11:05) @OlorinLorien Wonderful!

(21:34:39) @PeachyPics We're approaching a time where it is as close as it can possibly be to the earth :) http://t.co/lfHpsHwi

(21:48:01) @thatsjustme0 Lordy! And night night :) XX

(21:48:12) @smartie999 Good night my non-imaginary friend :)

(21:49:52) Well, I have camomile tea and a Monday to see if I can persuade to let me have a go on. But that's all in the future. Now: Night night! :)

(07:55:28) Morning. And, indeed, bleurgh. Coffee and (later) #BTCC qualification. In the damp. Oooh ...

(08:04:53) @miz_shake68 @joanneh234 Morning :) BTCC = British Touring Car Racing... it's normal (sort-of) cars being driven like billy-oh. Great fun :)

(08:06:04) @PlainTalkingHR Morning :) I'm going to be watching it on the telly (or the internets!) I hope you have some fun things planned for the day!

(08:09:38) @joanneh234 @miz_shake68 Oh I'm only going to be watching it.. I would love to do it for real, but it's a bit out of my budget :D x

(08:43:34) @OlorinLorien Just plain damp here ;)

(08:57:53) @OlorinLorien Oh for sure! :)

(08:58:53) RT @john_self: Why does a small island like Sodor need such an extensive railway network?

(09:25:42) 150 photos saved from yesterday... some of them are actually approaching OK. Definitely a worthwhile trip (with tripod).

(09:27:08) @OlorinLorien Oh wow. That is entirely a bit moist. Pretty much permanently over Luton. Still.. saves me watering the (waterlogged) garden!

(09:33:00) @thatsjustme0 Thanks, Dee! You too :) Can't believe I'm still in my jammies! :D xxx

(09:37:02) Favourite photos from yesterday 1: Canary Wharf from Greenwich http://t.co/cuMFOeFQ

(09:37:58) Favourite photos from yesterday 2: Pigeon man http://t.co/fSYwEUqk

(09:39:11) Favourite photos from yesterday 3: Diana Memorial Fountain Gone A Bit Instagrammy (cheap Neutral Density Filters!) http://t.co/W9GhBRXt

(09:39:58) Favourite photos from yesterday 4: Mechanical http://t.co/Eb8s4rWP

(09:40:14) @AlexGFox As you'll see, you have nothing to worry about :p

(09:40:22) @thatsjustme0 Thank you :)

(09:40:50) @Dappydoris Thank You :)

(09:41:00) Right.. time for a shower...

(09:58:35) @AlexGFox I enjoyed playing - and obviously fine photographers like you and @MissyMWAC inspire me :)

(10:55:24) @OlorinLorien Absolutely.. catch the rainwater!

(10:55:30) @streakmachine Thanks, Robert :)

(11:01:57) I just got kicked off a Minecraft server by my son for misbehaving. That's what Dads are supposed to do these days (I think)

(11:02:19) @mostlygeordie Morning :) Looks lovely!

(11:10:51) @mostlygeordie Oops! The morning has gone SO quickly! :)

(11:11:37) @smartie999 What's the NSPCP? But yeah. Sounds good ;)

(11:12:06) Time to heat up some pasta. Yeah. #lunchingtons #enoughforeverybody

(11:30:09) @smartie999 Oh definitely. I will take on the secretary role if you like ;) x

(11:30:23) @ajlanghorn Heh.. that's a brilliant Saturday thing! :)

(11:30:32) @smartie999 I am if you are (and if it's not heaving down with rain ;)

(11:53:22) I am complaining about the pronunciation of 'dynamite' in that song where they say 'dy-no-mite'. I am SO old.

(12:30:52) @RobJD Hoping for playoffs! :)

(12:31:28) Audioboo: Invasion of the cheery zombies http://t.co/Wc2LVQEh #ambience #recording

(12:38:06) I think I spent my 50,000th tweet with a bit of a moan about the current state of pop music. I should really have said that I love you.

(17:16:09) @Matildamouse ooooops!

(17:16:24) @Matildamouse I bet it lights your phone up. Like it's dynamite ;)

(17:16:35) @dt90spt Thanks, mate :)

(17:16:48) @mostlygeordie No.

(17:17:17) An afternoon of Minecraft building challenges here - designed by the children. Good indoor creative fun out of the rain :D

(17:31:51) @JuliaBall I'm not sure it'll be too long until he's got it.. it's BRILLIANT fun :) #bigkid

(17:31:57) @streakmachine Thanks, mate! :)

(19:18:45) It would appear that I have completely run out of sorts. I'm tempted to go and see if I can spot some on the inside of my eyelids...

(20:06:16) @fionajc3 I gave up on Instagram when it went all Facebook.. shame, really - there are some great photos on there :/

(20:15:36) @fionajc3 (Don't tell anyone, but I'm tempted to join up again ;)

(20:34:12) @fionajc3 YAY! :) x

(20:45:36) @smartie999 Gosh.

(20:46:06) Time for bed. Curling up with a book (not even a good one). Night night!

(05:04:44) Good morning. Listening to Jarvis Cocker's "Radio Nights"- I'd not heard it before. Now THAT's how to make radio. Awash with whimsy. #Radio4

(05:07:59) @debsylee Mornin Debsy! :)

(05:08:08) @mostlygeordie I'm not :/ (mornin')

(05:08:37) @emmathegardener I'm drinking coffee and just had some nice porridge. Morning! :) It's quite a nice village (the people I live near anyway!)

(05:08:53) @AuntieJammy Morning :) And the very same to you! x

(05:09:12) @claw0101 Bah! Morning :)

(05:28:14) @AuntieJammy I'm on board the stretch limo, trundling Londonward... got a half-day today yay!

(05:28:37) @mostlygeordie Watch me stumble there in my vest and pants :D

(05:29:25) @PervyWilbury Heehee... I'm not sure there's an appropriate way to answer that. But in short: no and yes ;)

(05:29:57) @Peteatkin2 @kingfamily @AuntieJammy @Barlie40 @gemmak500 Grey but dry (so far) here... morning Pete!

(05:30:47) @emmathegardener For sure - I'm glad to have you as a neighbour :)

(05:31:50) @AuntieJammy Of course - you just might have to share it with a bunch of airport passengers ;)

(05:33:27) @vsopfables Indulge yourself! :)

(05:34:16) @JQP74 Uhuh yeah! And I've got a half day! And my camera with me :) Have a brilliant one!

(05:35:22) @emmathegardener Actually, if you've got some coffee plant seeds.. ;)

(05:36:36) @PervyWilbury All cylinders, baby. I have this feeling I should go for a run, but I can't be bothered. Also I'm on a coach :D

(05:39:16) @emmathegardener :) :) I was intrigued by the chocolate scented plants you mentioned in a recent AKG.. want!

(05:40:40) @JQP74 Thanks mate - can't vouch for the pictures but it will certainly be an interesting day :) Hope yours has lots of highlights!

(05:41:16) @emmathegardener Yay :) I miss your voice and your expertise :)

(05:42:15) @alnicholl77 That's a long commute! Hope it goes well :)

(05:46:30) @PervyWilbury Head first. With a defiant, primal cry. At 60mph on the motorway. Yes!

(05:46:41) @JQP74 Around London :)

(05:49:17) @alnicholl77 I'll bet :/

(05:49:49) I am being cooked.

(05:58:09) @italisalute Morning Alan :) Roasting! The driver clearly likes it hot! Have a great day - hope the sun is shining where you are :)

(06:02:22) Irritation is the insidious form of battery.

(06:03:15) @italisalute Haha! Seriously, though, I hope the crops survive this spate of dampness!

(06:04:06) @vsopfables Perfect! And a jolly good time of day to do the food shopping - fresh bread o'clock :)

(06:35:09) @PlainTalkingHR Thank you for your friendship and support - and good morning! #FF @poots

(07:09:46) @JoOstermeyer Oh my ow. I hope you can still drive OK :/ x

(07:10:27) @PlainTalkingHR I was at work in record time this morning.. stopped along the way to take some (fairly poor) photos.. :D @poots

(07:10:50) @joanneh234 Morning! I'm a cheery scruffbag today.. but I need to do LOADS before I can leave the office at half-midday! :D @JQP74

(07:10:58) @gemmak500 @AuntieJammy @kingfamily @Barlie40 @Peteatkin2 G'morning!

(07:15:35) Rocking the scruffbag look this morning #dressdownfriday #halfday http://t.co/A21iqXJu

(07:40:11) Doing early morning emails to the accompaniment of Vulcans Rock ( http://t.co/stBmIaJ2 ) - early morning Trekker fun heh (h/t @MissyMWAC)

(07:52:34) @goitsagch Oh my.. you forgot to put the #YPLAC hashtag on ;)

(07:52:52) @JQP74 @joanneh234 is always beautiful :)

(07:58:11) @joanneh234 Thank you! Save for being easily distracted by Twitter(!) @jqp74

(08:27:06) @sharonlangridge Now that's a plan! My colleagues in the Video specialist team went through a stage of wearing suits for a while. Nutcases.

(08:27:23) @oliwia_s And you! Happy sunshine :) x

(08:41:37) @sharonlangridge WOW! Now that is going the extra mile :D

(09:06:34) @emmathegardener I'm guessing it's not Radio 4.. ;)

(09:07:32) @WhimsicalWife It's among the best sorts of cake.

(09:10:44) A confluence of delivery people (well, OK, two) just arrived at my front door.

(09:11:52) @govindajeggy They did a mandarin Lilt for a while.

(09:14:01) @thatsjustme0 I love guinea pigs - they're among my favourite pets.. do you purr when stroked? :D

(09:14:26) @OlorinLorien The black Maria was a little ominous...

(09:14:59) @cyberdonkey Oh I like! (although it makes it sound like I should get my shotgun out as they leave my property..)

(09:15:07) @cyberdonkey Not that I have a shotgun :D

(09:15:12) @JQP74 ;)

(09:15:23) Weakly report.

(09:39:49) @govindajeggy Nobody remembers Bruce Hindsyth.

(09:40:16) @fionajc3 I like my coffee like I like my women. Fruity and nutty. (Not acidic :D)

(09:41:19) I'm a man about town.

(09:44:34) @fionajc3 (Actually I like my coffee like I like my women: I'm a little bit addicted, but won't drink instant). #thatdoesntwork

(09:45:56) @joanneh234 @JQP74

(09:55:06) @mostlygeordie I'm not Gok Wan. I'm not Gok Wan. No. No. Definitely not. Gok Wan.

(09:55:27) @joanneh234 They did look a bit damp ;) @JQP74

(10:30:17) @smartie999 You are tremendously good at hugs. @joanneh234 @jqp74

(10:30:30) @oldgoldtech @TheSocialGamer @IlRoberto @magisterrex @SkateThePlanet @gamefreakblog @CommodoreBlog @8bitcentral @Zaxxon @Dradoneez Thanks!

(11:01:25) My email server's broken. Well.

(11:26:55) @thatsjustme0 Y'know, I think I might leave the office :D

(22:25:52) Heading home after a random but very pleasant afternoon & evening of photography. I don't think I made any amazing photos, but it was fun.

(05:23:44) @MissyMWAC Hahahaha! That is so cute!

(05:24:27) @JQP74 Morning, John. Back to work today? Apparently Thursday is the most miserable day of the week. I don't buy that :)

(05:25:20) @AuntieJammy I'm not quite so early this morning.. getting a slightly later bus :D I have coffee, though, so I will perk up (eventually ;)

(05:25:34) @AuntieJammy Are you splendid this morning?

(05:26:04) @lloydbayley Welcome home ;)

(05:27:52) @JQP74 Sleepy start to the day - as always. Hope your Thursday starts well and gets even better :) I'll do some #WordsWithFriends later! ;)

(06:04:34) @kingfamily @Peteatkin2 @Barlie40 @gemmak500 Morning (again, to @AuntieJammy ;) Running late today.. oops!

(06:04:57) @miz_shake68 Good morning, handsome lass :) @JQP74

(06:06:49) Oops.. my wallet ended up in the wrong trousers (Gromit) delaying my triumphant stretch limo ride to work. Also I think hay fever's started.

(06:30:10) @streakmachine @BritishTechNews @_windrider @teresahummel Yes, Robert - you're absolutely right.

(06:35:21) If you end up speaking to a man called Gavin, please ask him what sort of day he's having. #rhymingsmalltalk

(06:36:25) If you find yourself next to a bloke called Pete, you could always ask if he wants something to eat. #rhymingsmalltalk

(06:37:49) If I find myself bothering a woman called Sue, she will often say "have you nothing better to do?" #rhymingsmalltalk #boredofthisnow

(06:39:06) @mostlygeordie Good morning :) Are these specific things? Or generic? Whatever they are, I hope you have a good do.

(06:39:27) @mostlygeordie Oooh so close! ;)

(06:41:06) @mostlygeordie If you encounter a lady I know called Amanda, please tell her how much you admire her candour. #rhymingsmalltalk

(06:42:12) @joanneh234 Good morning, Joanne :) Wishing you a fabulous flavoured Fursday (with all natural ingredients ;) @JQP74 @miz_shake68

(06:42:55) @BitsyVonMuffin Good morning, dear Liz. Left my wallet at home, so in a bit of a tizz :/ #rhymingsmalltalk

(06:43:56) @j0taylor @pj_kent If anyone asks, I'll just tell them 'no' ;) #rhymingsmalltalk

(06:45:46) @mostlygeordie Heehee.. yes I do, Amanda - on my morning meander ;) x #rhymingsmalltalk

(06:46:44) @BitsyVonMuffin Gah! Glad it wasn't just me. Of course, women ~never~ forget anything (especially things their men have said :D)

(06:47:05) @j0taylor holy crap. @pj_kent

(07:04:03) @mostlygeordie hither is a word (as in 'a "come hither" look'). But not sure about thither. I s'pose I do get lots of "go thither" looks :D

(07:04:54) @caterham7 What can I say? Trousers all look the same in the dark... #diggingmyselfahole

(07:05:20) @joanneh234 Syrup in yer coffee, lass! x

(07:08:29) @teresahummel Have you tried turning the world off and on again?

(07:14:32) RT @FloraMarriott: Here's your social media policy pre written for you in 1 sentence by @MervynDinnen http://t.co/mYZbeiWn

(07:15:00) @caterham7 Oh they're mine.

(07:15:48) @mostlygeordie You're on ;)

(07:17:30) MT @poots: wishing all the best to @nxmee today who has his Maths Challenge (http://t.co/2eNFrhTl) this morning. // Good luck, my boy!

(07:19:12) @kingfamily The accident was north of where my coach joins the M1; it's Finchley Road I'm struggling with now #schoolruntrafficjams

(07:20:12) @PlainTalkingHR Good morning :) Wishing you the most wonderful day, too! @poots

(07:20:41) @caterham7 She's my dealer ;)

(07:21:45) @caterham7 And yes.. since you've shown such a keen interest, you can borrow them if you wish (please wash them afterward though ;)

(07:22:32) @poots Thank you! I was using it to play samples last night :) x

(07:23:31) @smartie999 Morning! Got any mini-eggs left?

(07:25:20) @caterham7 Ewwwwww! :D

(07:25:45) @caterham7 That must itch :D

(07:27:06) @Manda_Jones I read that as 'bacon roll'. I think this means I want a bacon roll. Hope today is as good :)

(07:35:54) @Sk287 You make it look good, though :)

(08:09:38) @errolin Roger!

(09:07:14) @smartie999 Ooooh! Bon matin madam bonquers.

(09:07:36) Coffee time. I have a BIG bag (nice one, Doug!)

(11:18:22) I am adhering to every single one of the principles of our Change Control system. Yes.

(11:21:15) @impymcwimpy Where do you find stories like that..?!

(11:21:45) @joanneh234 *just sits here*

(11:22:28) @jopijedd I am compliant. I will comply. I am compliant. I will comply. With appropriate authorisation. And a PIR.

(11:23:24) @mostlygeordie Please send pancakes soonest.

(11:28:58) @mostlygeordie You've got a waffle maker? COOL! We do almost everything with our Billy Bob Thornton grill ;)

(11:29:19) @mostlygeordie (I've always secretly wanted an ice cream maker. Well, OK, a Mister Frosty ;)

(11:33:26) @mostlygeordie I can never remember the proper name of it, so I just say the first celebrity name that comes into my head. Ted Baker..?

(11:34:35) @mostlygeordie Can I come round once you've got it working, please? (Actually I eat ice cream really slowly on account of brainfreeze ;)

(11:35:02) @jopijedd Post Implementation Report. But I like Pie Improvement Regime. Or Pat's Intelligent Rabbit.

(11:35:50) @ajlanghorn The key is making sure you get enough greens(creens). Croma key.. get it..? Oh never mind.

(11:36:17) @PinkBlancmange http://t.co/pqd7UH0n

(11:37:16) @mostlygeordie I'll have whatever you're offering (especially if it's rum and raisin!)

(11:47:03) @joanneh234 I'm very good at hugs. And singing silly songs.

(12:29:33) @jopijedd Heh. I do what I'm told. I do what I'm told. Told to do.

(15:40:16) RT @MissyMWAC: One of the best things I've ever heard. Ever. http://t.co/4VknCjEc

(15:47:50) @MissyMWAC I have totally shared this with my team. We often talk about Star Trek. An unhealthy amount, perhaps. Isn't that right, @ErrolIn?

(16:46:56) Trundling home - watching @BritishMac Cinema ... quite odd to see him as well as hear him. I've never been to Swanage.

(16:56:00) @crabbyknickers ~big hug~

(16:59:15) @JemStone Are you on the 7th? I'm in about the same place one floor down :D

(17:16:16) @mostlygeordie I said it, but alas, I didn't write it :/ Is there a forfeit? :D

(18:04:21) And I still haven't found my-y hou-use keys #NotU2

(19:05:51) @TheTroyKing Time to put your feet up, I think!

(19:06:25) @MissyMWAC I didn't get this tweet.

(19:06:49) @oliwia_s Dobranoc!

(19:13:13) @kingfamily Yay! You sound well blessed (innit!) x

(19:14:02) @OlorinLorien Never a truer word spoken (especially when at a court appearance)

(19:23:43) @StephenConvery Never an off-topic conversation with @claw0101 and @MissyMWAC ;)

(19:24:13) @MissyMWAC @Tone_720 @Claw0101 @StephenConvery They're called pavements. Or is it roads? Oh never mind.. just walk anywhere (it'll be fine)

(19:24:32) @OlorinLorien I heard the ending is quite a disappointment ;)

(19:24:58) @mostlygeordie Broccoli!

(19:45:45) @MissyMWAC @Tone_720 @Claw0101 @StephenConvery I'm sorry.. I can't see my keyboard.

(19:46:12) @JemStone Oooh! The home of radio wun.. I'd not realised that had come out of CDM.. must pop up there sometime :) I'll definitely say hello!

(19:46:40) @mostlygeordie HURRAH!

(19:50:29) @thatsjustme0 When it starts cough-coughing. Not a good thing to do - you can end up stirring crap off your fuel tank when you fill up :/

(20:37:44) RT @BritishTechNews: Chatroom Prizes this evening thanks to @BetsyWeber and @TechSmith. You HAVE to be in the chat though, not just watching

(20:38:46) RT @BritishTechNews: BIG Show is LIVE with @ErikLanigan @Syzygy @SarahJaneUK @HumeDini @EwenRankin http://t.co/wcv5AZlB Pls RT & come Along

(21:03:25) @thatsjustme0 Thank you for the retweet! :) :)

(22:11:20) @nathanchantrell @andytuk At least it's the PSU rather than any of the custom chips (like on the ZX81.. :/) Thanks, Andy - you're a star.

(22:11:54) @beershowjimmy Thanks, Jimmy - I appreciate you stopping by! :) LOVE my old spectrum (bought at a boot sale, I think!)

(22:12:22) @claremac82 You're making me wish I was watching it.. has it kicked off?

(22:19:04) Off to bed. Half a day of work then the weekend YEAH! Night night

(04:45:08) @PlainTalkingHR Good morning, earlyBina! Gonna be a day! ;)

(05:27:58) @MissyMWAC I don't spend enough time being 'stoked'. (I believe the British English equivalent is 'overexcited')

(05:29:10) @gemmak500 @Peteatkin2 @AuntieJammy @kingfamily @Barlie40 Good morrow. A damp hurtle to London is happening now. Yeah! Have a splendid day.

(05:31:15) @kyleswager Always worth a go! That was impressive, though :)

(05:34:23) .@alaindebotton Nice to hear your tweets receive a mention on Ed Reardon's Week yesterday - you are now part of the Grumpy Old Zeitgeist ;)

(05:34:55) @wkdstepmother Happy crookeding!

(05:36:10) Good morning. There is an obligatory toddler on the commuter service. I am becoming Ed Reardon (although I did pay for my ticket :D)

(05:36:34) @Barlie40 Good call! You too

(05:46:19) @PaulEdwards_ Listening to your show for the first time - you have a great voice. The show's kind of similar to @Vobes and @lloydbayley's :)

(05:48:01) @brennig I can imagine. That is an early desk! Happy Wednesday, by the way :)

(05:48:46) @fionajc3 Morning. It's grizzly. And drizzly. But pop outside and you'll be bringing the sunshine with you :)

(05:49:41) @poots Good morning :) Thank you! I think he's asleep... long may that remain the case! Hope you have a good day, too - see you later xx

(05:50:13) @PlainTalkingHR You are a wonder x

(05:51:12) I am truly feeling the Twitter Love this morning. It is a happy place (certainly the part of it I inhabit :) Thank you!

(06:02:41) @Barlie40 All quiet at the moment- possibly because it's so early.. :) Most of the folk in the stretch limo are asleep (except the driver ;)

(06:17:12) @fionajc3 Keeps ya on your toes ;) When are you venturing forth..? Anything good happening today?

(06:18:28) @miz_shake68 Goooood morning, Kate :) My cheeriness belies a bit of achiness. Maybe I should take up Yoga. Last time I did I got stuck ;)

(06:24:56) @Ariadnes_web Heehee :D I hope you keep warm!

(07:21:56) @caterham7 Hahaahaha! I will never be able to afford to live there ;)

(07:22:19) @vobes You set the benchmark, sir.

(07:22:45) @PaulEdwards_ Morning, Paul :) It was a good romp. That @LilyShambles is a character! :D

(07:24:48) @lloydbayley I might even say invented a new genre... at which you and @PaulEdwards_ both excel.

(07:29:28) @PaulEdwards_ I would love to hear it (although there was talk of burning everything you have recorded with her ;)

(07:40:09) @fionajc3 Don't forget your snowboots ;)

(07:54:56) @JQP74 Morning John :) Keep dry!

(07:55:31) @shellzenner I think it's the one that sits on its own, on the other side of the piazza #donotquoteme

(08:25:05) @JQP74 Thanks, mate - you can still have fun, whatever the weather ;)

(08:25:24) @joanneh234 Morning lovely! Have a great day, too :) Hope you can spend most of it indoors! @JQP74

(08:28:03) Having a nice pear.

(08:28:56) @joanneh234 I am crazy busy this morning, but have this afternoon off (using up leave) Although I daresay that'll be busy, too :D

(08:29:26) @joanneh234 YAY for the imminent arrival of @Smartie999, though - please give each other a massive hug from me :)

(08:52:36) Another day, another scheduling shambles.. :D

(08:58:19) @LilyShambles Not yet anyway ;) x

(09:13:39) @Kittybliss Ding dong!

(09:14:03) @sharonlangridge I may well be having both. Concurrently.

(10:15:13) Involved in a detailed discussion of who exactly were the captains of the Enterprise. It's all gone a bit Big Bang Theory.

(10:18:59) @streakmachine There is much hilarity. You should come and work with us. @Errolin is good value.

(10:27:04) @mostlygeordie Won't play :( I have no hope of clearing the gutters on our roof.. they're three floors up! :D

(11:15:06) @poots yes... but I'm struggling to remember - do you have some lyrics?

(11:18:55) @LilyShambles Heh. I may have a small drink later too.. I tend to be quite an overaffectionate tipsyperson :D

(11:19:34) @LilyShambles PS Sorry for sullying the name of the Shambles family ;)

(11:23:46) @LilyShambles Forever yeah :D

(13:33:55) Quite splendidly, the sun is shining for my afternoon off. I wonder if a frolic is in order.

(16:35:09) Well at least it's not raining.

(16:51:47) Oh hang on. It is raining.

(17:26:14) @errolin Something to do with me not being there, then ;)

(17:26:22) @miz_shake68 D'oh!

(17:29:51) RT @EwenRankin: If youre in the Chatroom for The BIG Show on Thursday, we have a copy of Camtasia2 & Snagit2 to give away. You gotta be ...

(18:03:55) I have only had one mug of coffee today. It was a fairly generously sized one, but still. Not really very impressive.

(19:39:00) My website's broken.

(19:43:25) @thatsjustme0 *tips the sofa up*

(20:25:57) Gah.. for information: http://t.co/STO4Zj9c #UK2 @UK2

(20:32:52) @PlainTalkingHR Unfortunately my hosting company is having trouble :/ Oops!

(20:33:07) @thatsjustme0 I hope all the blood hasn't rushed to your head ;)

(20:33:23) @mostlygeordie I will strive to improve on this tomorrow ;)

(20:33:36) @goitsagch I double-clicked like mad. MAD I tells ya ;)

(20:36:22) All tired out and two more days of work to do before the weekend. Well, one and a half. Must remember my tripod on Friday. Night night now!

(05:27:29) @AuntieJammy A slow start to Tuesday - but I have coffee ;) @Peteatkin2 @kingfamily @Barlie40 @gemmak500

(05:28:36) @AuntieJammy I have to zoom imminently though :/ The workday begins! @Peteatkin2 @kingfamily @Barlie40 @gemmak500

(05:29:26) @EwenRankin @MissyMWAC @claw0101 There was a Quantum Leap reference!

(05:29:47) @JQP74 Happy Thursday-2 ;) Have a great day :)

(05:31:38) Morning. Tuesday is stuffing a load of salad into my work bag day. I'm the pied piper of rabbits. In a commuting stylee. Bis später!

(05:58:49) @lloydbayley Ja! Das stimt ;)

(06:00:53) @miz_shake68 So good you said it twice ;)

(06:02:27) @vobes I hope you get to feed your inner Vobes soon!

(06:03:21) @EwenRankin Morning big man. Bit damp round the gills - and set to remain so.

(06:03:55) @Ariadnes_web Good morning one :)

(06:18:58) @Ariadnes_web What ho! I'm hurtling towards another workday. I'm going to have to cut down on my coffee.. it's stopped working :D How's you?

(06:20:06) @poots @ladyofessex @essexlad13 Not sneezing afterwards was the worst bit. And pulling out the wadding. Otherwise it was fine :)

(06:22:23) @ladyofessex It definitely did for me - I had really bad sinus headaches before, and it's much better now :) @poots @essexlad13

(06:25:26) @fionajc3 morning you! Please have a magical, mysterious and unexpected Tuesday. And then report back. Same to @FrankMillar & @SplashMan ;)

(06:26:31) @Ariadnes_web Oh Lordy :/ I hope the time zooms by - if you're busy with those naughty reports I'm sure the weeks will blur!

(06:28:21) @ladyofessex Me too! All the best to @essexlad13; I'm sure you'll look after him afterwards as wonderfully as my beloved @poots did for me:)

(06:28:54) @claw0101 You two are really funny :) I loved your rendition of my review :D

(06:33:35) @fionajc3 People don't use the word 'rather' enough these says. They say 'innit'.. or 'ya get me?' You occupy the cultural high ground YEAH!

(06:34:10) @JQP74 I have my fingers crossed and a meeting at 10am :D

(06:36:01) @the_anke Happy birthday to your typical teenage offspring ;)

(06:43:10) I wouldn't normally link to the D**ly M**l but I think @wmarybeard deserves the right to reply to odious tosser AA Gill http://t.co/lmSMxSMO

(06:49:21) @fionajc3 Haha! It's all good. Or, indeed, bloody marvellous :D Have a delicious day, with double-takes and daring deeds ;) x

(06:52:44) @joanneh234 You are a delight :) @miz_shake68

(07:09:07) @fionajc3 Ginger beer - definitely! But lashings? Well, that's more of a custard thing. There will be custard. Oh yes. On Kirrin Island(?!)

(07:10:21) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar @TheDizzyMama Good morning. I'm doing a big bellyflop into the work day!

(07:11:06) @OlorinLorien That is a very good idea #catharsis

(07:44:26) RT @ejdelavega: Pulling pranks at the MIT geek level: Turning an entire building into a game of Tetris. http://t.co/6VzjpGVi

(07:47:20) @CymraesCoch I wasn't very good at the 1970s.. punk and disco and strikes and TOO HOT summers are my pervading memories ;)

(07:58:11) @CymraesCoch I can barely remember the 70s.. or 80s.. or even last week, to be honest :D

(09:43:54) Mmmpistachios

(09:44:14) @SamBonham !! I can (theoretically!) see you from here ;)

(09:46:51) @PlainTalkingHR Both! Want one?

(09:47:00) @sfdrummer I think they're probably quite healthy :)

(10:02:59) @thatsjustme0 Come and grab yourself one :)

(10:03:16) @smartie999 NOT Jeremy Kyle, for sure! Come and grab a nut or two x @PlainTalkingHR

(13:52:15) @Manda_Jones @RedButtonDesign There's definitely a book in this..

(15:24:09) I think I've sprained my metabolism.

(15:29:15) @regularjen I'm doing OK then, I think! :D

(15:59:17) Help, @CathedralCity! My cheese has gone rogue and won't let me in :( :( A batch problem? NU007 16:53:47 PN2077-1 http://t.co/lSdsdP1c

(16:39:27) Heading homeward. It's warm and fragrant on the stretch limo today and the apparently obligatory toddler is asleep. Wishing you a happy now.

(16:43:22) Celebrating the journey home with a bit of @Vobes and @BeerShowJimmy "Take care one and all and join us now." (with a Hoover. How tidy ;)

(16:44:31) @JemStone Oh. Oh dear. #hashtag #radio4

(16:48:59) @fiverscarrot I nearly failed to make lunch. Had to borrow some scissors and ruined the ziplock thing. Most vexing... :D

(16:49:32) @errolin Happy then to you. And Raja.

(16:50:09) @JemStone Indeed :) PM is pretty much my perfect #Radio4 programme :)

(16:53:43) @mostlygeordie Thank you! I may well doze off :D Hope you've had as good a day :) x

(17:22:57) @emsquare_d Someone needs to have a word..! (that said, the same presumably applies to Google Docs...)

(17:24:46) @thatsjustme0 I'd get off the roll before you start the aerobics - you'll get bread mashed into the carpet ;)

(17:27:47) @JamesCridland A matter of concern..? (in the T&Cs for google services) /via @emsquare_d http://t.co/kMMMdWYx

(17:30:42) @JamesCridland ahh sorry.. I'll grab it when I get home :)

(17:56:57) So good to be home. Which is where I am. Comes highly recommended.

(18:04:32) @neilfarrimond Amen, brother!

(18:07:43) YEAH. Portal + Lego. http://t.co/wzBtk83E

(18:15:58) @poots @fiverscarrot Oy! :D

(18:23:57) @essexlad13 Glad to hear it :)

(18:37:53) I don't do failure. Because it is really inconvenient.

(18:51:31) @MissyMWAC I don't believe in the no-learn scenario ;) x

(18:51:53) @mostlygeordie I don't fail.. I learn :) But it is still a bit inconvenient :D

(19:02:56) @streakmachine Welcome to my world ;)

(19:58:47) @theilppodcast That's good, right..? ;)

(20:01:59) @fiverscarrot I'll drop some wherewithall round ;)

(20:17:41) @JaneReynolds8 I've never tried to play the Eastenders theme on a recorder... ;)

(20:18:23) @theilppodcast Hurrah! Good pizza? Is Debbie there? She's the best.

(20:21:06) I'm watching something really weird with Simon Amstell in.

(20:22:48) @fiverscarrot Allez-oup!

(20:25:34) @misscorsham Yeah.. Rebecca Front's in it. She's ace. But it's left me shaking my head at the telly with a bewildered grin on my face :D

(20:34:20) @theilppodcast yay! Love that lady.

(20:45:49) @sarahjaneuk Oh yes! No sign of mice at @BluebieH yet, though :D @CathedralCity @BushHouseMice @tvcentremice

(21:03:32) @misscorsham Coolio - it may have found its voice.. perhaps worth another watch? :)

(21:04:18) @ajlanghorn Heh. For sure! May be up there next Tuesday evening.. I'll keep you posted!

(21:06:50) Bedtime. Tomorrow is another 24 hours.. hopefully in the right order. See you quite close to the beginning! Night :)

(05:16:14) @BaronHawkey Good morning, BH. Monday's back like a bad joke :D

(05:16:34) @AuntieJammy @kingfamily Good morning lovely people :)

(05:16:52) @arronclaydon Happy St George's Day to you too :)

(05:18:18) @vobes Morning Richard. Another day begins!

(05:21:12) @kingfamily @AuntieJammy We had showers and sunshine.. and dust! (Caving party with Lenni and her school mates :D) Another week begins...

(05:21:49) @BaronHawkey Brilliant weekend, thank you.. just picking up speed for another busy week now! Hope it's a good one for you, mate.

(05:22:30) @_forky Gah, indeed. Hopefully a nice cup of tea will help..?

(05:22:46) Morning. Monday. Coffee and toast...

(05:23:20) @PlainTalkingHR Morning, Bina. Thank you! I'll take a look. Working from home today... nice not to have to hurtle ;)

(05:25:15) @kingfamily @AuntieJammy Heehee.. it wasn't too bad - it was quite clever, in fact.. only just underground and made with breezeblocks ;)

(05:25:30) @PlainTalkingHR Busy busy Bina! :)

(05:27:23) @JQP74 Happy Monday to you, too, John! Hope there's lots of interesting things on the horizon :)

(06:15:37) @_forky Ohh yes. Although I do get terrible bed-head :D

(06:15:49) @Tactless_Claire Morning. And, indeed, terse.

(06:17:09) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @Stopsleyvicar @TheDizzyMama May Monday make much magnificence :)

(06:18:25) It's only easy if you know the answer. Or have access to Google.

(06:23:44) While I remember, the man who's bought the house next door popped round to introduce himself. He's called Roger. #buytolet

(07:07:57) @FinalBullet K

(07:51:08) @BaronHawkey As the saying goes: Fail to prepare - prepare to fail :) Or in my case: prepare at the last minute and hope for the best ;)

(07:55:42) Sunny and cheerful walk to school. Actions arising: Daddy to empty some of the compost bin into ToysRUs carrier bags. #WhenIGetRoundToIt

(07:56:17) @SimplyTanny Hope it goes smoothly x

(08:54:41) Is this the shape of the future? (nonagon)

(09:52:14) Happy 30th birthday, Sinclair Spectrum! That surely deserves a quick game of Chuckie Egg! (@andytuk @oldgoldtech) http://t.co/ZCE6d1Hc

(09:59:30) @andytuk I've done that mod on the ZX81.. this is the first time the speccy's been out of the loft in several years ;)

(10:09:33) @dt90spt Hope you have a good day!

(10:09:41) @lucyrboo Tonsilitis, I'd say.

(10:10:24) Right. Coffee and working through the list. While catching up with Audioboos. That's about right.

(10:25:30) @smartie999 We have exactly that problem. Our house weighs too much now.

(10:50:43) @simontuff Your annual WHAT..?

(10:51:10) @vobes I'll not say anything if you won't ;)

(11:41:36) The devastating effect of changing my password when connected remotely. Complete lockout. Oops.

(11:42:54) @smartie999 Heehee. We are all complicit in this house. Which is, quite possibly, worse :D

(11:44:41) @lloydbayley Heh. Crash and burn <- my learning methods ;)

(11:48:41) @fridgemagnet2 Who are you again?

(14:56:51) @fridgemagnet2 Heh.. we have one of them, but it only works actually in the office - can't do it from home :D

(14:57:11) @errolin It did - thanks, mate :)

(14:58:21) @Sk287 Hahahaha! Can you just leave the icing? ;)

(16:08:07) @ms_howard Good luck!

(16:33:47) @ms_howard Hurrah! Next stop: Not London Any More :)

(17:15:35) Stopping work now. I shall see if the children fancy a go on the ol' ZX Speccy while it's still downstairs....

(17:17:50) @LilyShambles Hahahahaha! True.

(17:18:54) "Ooh.. that's the programme with Kate Humble in..." (doesn't narrow it down much..)

(17:20:02) @LilyShambles Yes. It is. You can spice it up by saying something like "if you arrive outside that time, I'm having slurry delivered."

(17:20:49) @MooseAllain I'd rather you didn't.

(17:21:05) @ClaireatWaves Maybe they're taking after Belgium..?

(17:22:26) @Tone_720 I have a theory that Kate Humble can't go indoors.

(17:23:16) @sfdrummer Drizzlewatch.

(17:23:40) @LilyShambles That's not the sort of Archers I was thinking you'd have in your house ;)

(17:35:55) @LilyShambles Are you going on a recording..? :/

(17:36:11) @Sk287 I think it might be chocolate.

(17:40:54) @Sk287 Nooooooooo! A hug, then?

(18:09:40) Audioboo: Tape loading error http://t.co/Kw1juKRe #birthday #sinclair #spectrum

(19:24:10) @Purple_Sand He does a lot with Mark Watson - worth looking on YouTube for "We Need Answers" :)

(19:24:47) @love_luton Happy St George's Day to you, too :)

(19:26:30) @Sk287 night night lovely

(19:30:12) @Pewari Heh.. there may well be an emulator for Xbox ;) Not quite the same (read: woeful ;) as the real thing, though :D

(19:31:39) @shellzenner Are you banging the endstops, young lady? The engineers won't be pleased :p

(19:46:28) @Manda_Jones I've got no intention.of growing up :D

(19:50:39) Today's schoolrun parking shame: a quartet of numpties 'cos it's rainin'. You couldn't get an ambulance through. #YPLAC http://t.co/52QTMTRb

(19:53:14) @Manda_Jones I find serendipity tells me what's best for myself ;) I have ended up in hospital twice in the last two years, though. Oops :D

(19:54:19) @Matildamouse Ha! I bloody well make them walk whatever the weather ;)

(19:55:54) @Manda_Jones You and me both. Can I come to your bouncy castle party? #tillmybackgoes

(19:57:11) @WhimsicalWife After the day you've had, I think you deserve one :)

(20:01:51) I remember typing BASIC games from Sinclair Programmer into a ZX81. My boy is doing the same: but with Java from Youtube.. for Minecraft :)

(20:07:59) @fiverscarrot Nothing wrong with parking nearby.. it's the ones who want to get so close to the school they're practically in the gates! :D

(20:09:09) @Pewari Heehee! I was fairly sure I had an Electron.. I've got a Model B, though. Love those old Acorn computers :) :)

(20:22:26) @streakmachine Bless you. You need some streakmachine antihistamines!

(20:24:30) @goitsagch @fiverscarrot That's the crazy thing - they could pay for themselves within a fortnight, and tour the schools of Luton #dimwits

(20:30:31) @Manda_Jones Vodka jelly! I am going to have to make that again. I seriously doubt its efficacy. Something to do with the kids this weekend.

(20:36:56) @fridgemagnet2 Please poke them this way ;)

(20:37:07) @Matildamouse No messin' (except at weekends ;)

(20:37:46) @Manda_Jones That'll be why it's never featured on Masterchef.

(21:04:04) @CymraesCoch Ooh! I don't think I've got a VIC20 - one of my mates had one when I was at school.. loved playing games on it ;)

(21:16:20) @CymraesCoch I've definitely got one of them :) :) I love a bit of 1980s nostalgia x

(21:17:47) In bed, slowly drifting towards an inevitable Tuesday. It has punctuation. More I simply cannot say (or tell from here). Night night.

(07:20:27) Good morning. There are thousands of people lolloping through London today. I'm not one of them; a run to the bus stop is the closest I get.

(07:21:17) @Lycan33 Excellent news :) long may that continue :)

(07:25:21) Random tune to get me out of bed: Abba - Summer Night City. Really weird compressed production, but great bit of pop.

(07:29:31) @AuntieJammy Morning :)

(07:30:00) @Barlie40 Morning :)

(07:32:39) #NowPlaying Ryan Paris - Dolce Vita ... Europop classic. I am supposed to be getting up, but listening to 80s synth pop arrangements is fab.

(07:52:48) @regularjen Dragged myself downstairs for breakfast & @106jack - they play some good 80s stuff as well :) Hope the sun's shining for you!

(07:53:26) @GardenCity_Mark Heh :D They should bring back 'Bits and Pieces' :D

(07:54:09) @AuntieJammy Morning Jamster :) I'm sleepy but OK, thank you. How about you? x

(07:54:34) @miz_shake68 I just don't like getting sweaty :D

(07:56:04) @Tactless_Claire Morning the Claire.

(08:00:15) @JQP74 Morning, John :) Still waking up here - preparing for a busy day! Time to get showered & dressed, I think.. have a great one!

(08:00:57) @Tactless_Claire I will let you know when I'm showered, fragrant and in my Sunday Finery ;) How about you?

(08:01:20) @smartie999 Careful now x

(08:12:27) @regularjen Hurrah! :)

(08:17:19) @Lycan33 Can't beat a bit of SOAD :)

(08:17:43) @mostlygeordie Morning :) Odd dream!

(08:25:21) RT @kief: Congrats to Google on hiring fellow @syzygyuk alum and celebrated online marketing creative whiz @iaintait http://t.co/jxxfhBr6

(10:22:30) Praying for sustained sunshine - Lenni has a caving party this afternoon, AND @poots has a 'minilympics' :D

(12:03:38) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar @BronwenPTHR Happy Sunny (for now, anyway ;) Sunday!

(12:31:32) Making sandwiches for a children's party. Banana and mustard. It's a taste sensation.

(12:32:48) @Susan_Rae1 Know your enema. I mean enemy.

(12:33:19) @TheaTweets That is lovely :)

(12:35:16) @iamamro Should I be reading that ..?

(12:39:44) @_forky @jopijedd Candy floss and ham drizzle.

(17:55:08) @LilyShambles In theory :D

(18:00:59) Home after a caving birthday party thing for Lenni and some of her school pals. A great time had - I recommend Dell Farm to all Lutonians :)

(18:01:17) @LilyShambles Gosh. I would love a bit of that.

(18:03:16) @LilyShambles I think the market is somewhat limited ;) The food was appreciated but I was only doing 'reserve sustenance' - hardly touched.

(18:04:05) @BeachHut81 We've never taken that risk.:D Hope it goes OK and doesn't require too much remedial work.

(18:05:12) I forgot about the hosepipe ban - Lenni had to remind me earlier before I started washing the car.. oops.

(18:05:36) @LilyShambles battered. Then cooked in lard.

(18:09:40) @BlueMoon_11 is that proper true..?

(18:11:16) @MissyMWAC ~beams~ That is the effect you have on the world, dear thing.

(18:11:50) @fiverscarrot (I made cheese or ham rolls in the end ;)

(18:12:25) @BeachHut81 I hope the piggy isn't too traumatized :D

(18:13:43) @thatsjustme0 You can't watch #TheVoice in the bath..? Is the acoustics..?

(18:14:20) @LilyShambles Ha! Scammer scamps :D

(18:14:41) @B3tan_Tyronne Well indeed. ~sighs~

(18:48:27) @thatsjustme0 Evening :) Hope your day has remained relaxing :)

(18:51:40) Why is my body telling me it's bedtime? :/ I have come to a complete stop. This is less than ideal. Defibrillator on standby...

(18:55:27) @BeachHut81 Hurrah :) Speaking of which, our little Frisbee could probably do with a bit of spoiling :D

(18:55:55) @mostlygeordie For sure - unless I get a second wind :D

(19:45:15) RT @thatsjustme0: @syzygy the weekend has just passed far too quickly :-( oh well snuggled up now, I like Sunday evenings ~sighs~ :-)

(19:49:50) @Matildamouse Heh :D Only some!

(19:52:08) @LilyShambles Get out your harmonica!

(20:04:52) @LilyShambles oh you :p You've got the Still Alive Blues :D

(20:06:50) @thatsjustme0 I tend to try and get stuff done on a Sunday evening - good for sorting things out :) Not doing very much tonight, though :D

(20:08:50) @LilyShambles Don't make me come over there. Or send @beershowjimmy :p

(20:14:40) @thatsjustme0 Relax D - sounds like you need to build up your strength for the next fortnight x

(20:23:29) @LilyShambles You are so the new Nigella Lawson. Or Nigel.

(20:48:49) @LilyShambles ~blows a raspberry~ I'm not the boss of you x

(21:08:18) Sleepytime.. listening to the tail end of "Material World".. always quite an interesting listen. #Radio4

(21:08:26) Oooh.. goodnight!

(06:37:40) Good morning. I woke with the sensation of a wasp smashing into my neck. On the side that was against the pillow ~rudeimaginaryawakening~

(06:40:25) @lloydbayley Very very odd! The brain is a strange thing :D

(06:40:49) @_windrider I'm just glad I woke up in bed. Or at all! :D

(06:41:18) @Barlie40 Morning - I wish the very same to you :) Happy weekend!

(06:41:46) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar @BronwenPTHR @TheDizzyMama @Lindylooloo Good morning! :)

(06:46:53) @mostlygeordie hehe.. definitely! :)

(06:47:05) @nxmee Hurrah :) :)

(06:47:54) I thought for a moment I would have had to climb out the window this morning. As it is, I simply need to look at the Screwfix website :D

(06:49:37) RT @nxmee: :( we are locked in our house (the lock has broken methinks)

(06:49:39) RT @nxmee: fixed :) (thanks @syzygy)

(06:49:52) @mostlygeordie Spinning?

(06:50:19) @daisythom I find the same with paracetamol.

(06:56:30) @mostlygeordie hahaha! Well, could you have an ambulance on standby as well, please? ;)

(07:09:24) @trakgalvis @canuckuk Hahaah! What a fantastic thing to get done for. When I'm a pensioner I will do stuff like that. Second childhood :)

(07:10:04) @daisythom Thanks for the advice :) I hope you find as an ideal alternative to disappointment.

(07:14:36) @canuckuk @trakgalvis :D Indeed!

(10:03:12) @dt90spt You're doing pretty well,too ;) @poots

(10:03:56) @miz_shake68 morning! Have a fabulous weekend :)

(10:05:05) @dt90spt so if I put 50p under my pillow the wasp fairy swaps it for a wasp..? Lordy!

(19:26:11) Finally home after a day of family fun in Derbyshire :) LOADS of photos to sort (and doubtless upload to Facebook)

(19:26:33) @thatsjustme0 Ooh! Tasty! :)

(19:44:13) Comedy time. Three in a row (Argumental, Would I Lie To You and Not Going Out) and then the photo editing...

(20:20:58) @thatsjustme0 Hello :) How has your day been?

(20:32:37) @thatsjustme0 Awww :) I like Derbyshire but Hampshire's lovelier ;) I'm doing the relaxing bit now - it works really well! ;)

(20:39:59) @thatsjustme0 Never interrupting :) Have a wonderfully chilled out time x

(21:41:45) @Monika_Hale Bon nuit!

(21:41:57) @smartie999 NIIGHT!

(21:43:00) @mostlygeordie @caritas730 @_aylesbury I ate too many Pringles once. PARTY ON! x

(21:43:32) Right. After all the excitement of the day (and I didn't even go on the zipwire) I shall go to bed. Sweet dreams and NO wasps to you. Night!

(05:21:03) @Sk287 Hello! Sorry.. I would've loved to have been, but with all that's going on in London at the moment, I'm finding it hard to escape :/

(05:21:59) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @stopsleyvicar @poots @TheDizzyMama @BronwenPTHR Good morning- the weekend is just one day away!

(05:24:15) Good morning. Everything is as it should be: Take That on the radio, grey skies above & a hurtle down the M1 ahead. Best bit is it's Friday!

(05:29:39) @mostlygeordie That was a truly fascinating interview - and good to see you share your timeline with so many other Radio 4 listeners :)

(05:30:57) @PlainTalkingHR I am - I get a slightly earlier bus now, which should improve my rush hour chances.. not when it's raining though :D You OK?

(05:33:27) @mostlygeordie Thank you. I have my fingers crossed! (Good thing I'm not driving :D)

(05:34:03) @kingfamily Heh. An early morning crisis! Morning Angie :)

(05:35:49) @JQP74 Morning! Thanks for the tip.. surely @miz_shake68 doesn't use an online scrabble solver..?! She's a woman of integrity and fineness!

(05:38:16) @AuntieJammy NO YOGURT in the King Family House! (Ooh.. must try bananas and yogurt for brekky one morning.. a personal favourite ;)

(05:39:12) @PlainTalkingHR Fantastic! Safe trip up the M1 :)

(05:54:38) @kingfamily Sounds tasty :) I either have porridge or I have peanut butter on toast :) and coffee. Oh the coffee!

(05:56:07) @TheDizzyMama @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @stopsleyvicar @poots @BronwenPTHR I think I can make it out from here :) :)

(06:05:24) Chuckling quietly at The Audacity of Hype by @aiannucci as the 'news' on the radio features the story "Petrol is more expensive than ever."

(06:22:52) Very much enjoying some Ulrich Schnauss in my ears as I put away my book for the yomp to the office. Much better time today.

(06:28:46) @crabbyknickers Morning you! And yay :)

(06:38:29) That's stunningly specific to go to the lengths of printing a sign! Couldn't they have put a note through the door? http://t.co/VAqCg0VP

(06:52:30) @_forky @Vixbrix @Dappydoris @Syzygy @Rnnbrwn @Beangirl @Harzer01 @Juliethaley @BaronHawkey @Moominmamma @Smartie999 Happy #FollowFriday!

(07:38:47) @miz_shake68 *chuckles* But @JQP74 is the best player in Europe..!?

(07:39:01) @Dappydoris And the very same to you. Hope the sun is shining over the Kent countryside x

(07:39:10) @alnicholl77 I might nick it #joke

(07:39:22) @miz_shake68 *curtsies* x

(07:39:59) The massive multifunction printer photocopy thing in our office genuflects before it starts printing. Never seen a Catholic printer before.

(07:40:39) Time to do battle with everything. In other news, once again, someone has walked off with my work mug. That has photos of my family on it(!)

(07:59:10) @peterowen1 Thank you! :) @honeystweet7 @HungryHatter @HeyItsJanne @k4_ttt

(07:59:22) @BaronHawkey Ohhh yeah! Did you get home in the end..?

(08:01:31) @caterham7 It's not a very effective one :D

(08:05:28) @joanneh234 Caesar?

(08:16:58) I need to get some gold stars. #errolin

(08:17:44) @joanneh234 I will only try and catch them in my mouth ;) @JQP74

(08:29:31) MT @Maybeitwasutah Hilarious and depressing. Last one's the best. http://t.co/f1tNGJXF /via @Dappydoris

(09:03:47) @PontoonDock Stepilepsyaction. There y'go. Free branding. @epilepsyaction

(09:06:48) @Dappydoris You've a bigger beard than me. That is NOT fair. I shall grow one now. With a sharpie or something. @BrianBlessed #BeardyFriday

(09:41:43) @errolin happy anniversary, mate!

(11:05:35) @mostlygeordie I love serendipity :)

(11:05:44) Is it too early for lunch?

(11:06:30) @sharonlangridge Hurrah! I shall get in early with the microwaves :D

(11:06:45) @mostlygeordie What are the chances? :D

(11:10:44) @kingfamily Yay! You have yogurt! :)

(11:13:03) @joanneh234 I haven't any lemony puffs at work, but I can offer you some of these for dessert ;) http://t.co/FVtXeYc6

(11:21:07) @fiverscarrot Yay! It's pizza day!

(11:31:17) @_windrider Chin chin! :)

(11:32:21) @joanneh234 I can do you banana ones ;) I work in a large open plan office in central London. The area I'm in is always good for a laugh :D

(11:33:46) Thing I mean to get round to and never do: creating a google calendar of my Twitter pals' birthdays. Happy birthday, @kyleswager

(11:36:50) @leica0000 Heh. Yup.

(11:45:27) @_windrider Ohhh! You're Souperchicken (I like that name :)

(11:45:50) @leica0000 Oh totally. The best is when you realise you know someone from TWO different places :)

(11:46:19) @joanneh234 Haven't you? I work in a MASSIVE office... I'll take a photo (of some of it!)

(12:13:20) @_windrider Heh. Moments of madness are underappreciated.

(12:14:33) Staying in and buying stuff.

(13:02:54) @JQP74 Sort of... I'm investing in my musical future(?!)

(13:08:56) @JQP74 Heh.. no. Loop pedal :)

(14:30:45) @MissyMWAC I've just had coffee number two of the day. TWO. And it's half past three in the afternoon. #poorperformance. PS Good morning! x

(14:39:24) It comes to something where, to request leave in this place, you actually have to request it in person. Quite possibly with bribes #biscuits

(14:54:21) Some despicable lickspittle has turned the thermostat up in the office. My thermometer is saying 32 degrees C. @BluebieH - sort it out!

(15:04:28) @sharonlangridge I think my thermometer might be overegging it a bit, but I fear the Building Management System is a bit up the spout :D

(15:05:11) @regoodyear I think the two may well be connected :D

(16:19:47) @MissyMWAC Heehee - or power a SuperMissy! :D

(16:28:02) @MissyMWAC @Tone_720 Does it involve spinning round in a phone booth? Oh I do hope so :D

(16:39:37) @thatsjustme0 Yay colourful! (I love colourful things :D)

(16:39:52) @katchooon Oooooh! I saw ya!

(16:40:49) @FinalBullet Coolest. Thing.

(16:42:56) I are damply going home. Hungry and tired. Like one of them industrious types. I know - let's go and grab a weekend on the way.

(16:49:16) @poots Hurrah! Thank you :)

(16:52:56) @JQP74 Are you selling tickets? I would entirely watch that tussle :) @miz_shake68 @washmysocks @joanneh234

(16:56:37) @_windrider I would totally have whatever @MissyMWAC can't manage ;) I am supremely peckish now. Veritably ravenous!

(16:57:17) @thatsjustme0 Evening lovely! Sounds like you've started the weekend in fine style :)

(16:57:43) @JQP74 The luckiest, certainly :) @miz_shake68 @washmysocks @joanneh234

(17:22:18) @Ariadnes_web Cheers! To the weekend :)

(18:24:43) @thatsjustme0 The mind boggles.. not sure how you're going to be able to drink bouncing on that ball.. or are you going to lean over it? D

(18:25:45) @riggwelter ~obviously~ your fat's turned to muscle. Yeah. Reading that blog post has made me want to go and weigh myself :D

(18:26:10) @riggwelter I might even get out the Wii fit #solidarity (but I'll struggle to come off the biscuits #nonsolidarity ;)

(18:26:30) @Purple_Sand More fluids and a bit of paracetamol/acupressure? Feel better soon x

(18:29:43) @thatsjustme0 I will be encouraging you to Twitpic it ;)

(18:29:58) I think I deserve a pint this evening. I have been ~very~ good.

(18:35:43) @LilyShambles Heehee! :) :) I've only had a couple of pints and some fruity teas :D

(18:36:39) @mostlygeordie @BaronHawkey @caritas730 GROUP HUG!

(19:06:35) @LilyShambles Sometimes *looks sheepish*

(19:08:19) @brennig Have a BRILLIANT time! :)

(19:44:26) @andytuk I have always had a hankering for a BBC Master.. :)

(19:44:35) @kingfamily HURRAH! :)

(19:45:07) @smartie999 Send her to me. I'll have a word.

(19:46:52) @Ariadnes_web YES! Don't get too much down you ;)

(19:47:23) @andytuk Eventually :) There would be ADFS requirements as well, naturally. And a Microvitec CUB monitor ;)

(19:47:52) @kingfamily I may have to try that one ;)

(20:42:55) @smartie999 The main issue is that you ~shouldn't~ let her use your car. There is no reason for it :) x

(20:43:19) @andytuk *gulps* I will check my savings! I would SO love one!

(21:00:27) I have a glass of port and a computer to transplant. I'm not sure these go together ~that~ well, but it's worth a go.

(22:03:44) Audioboo: Replacing a noisy fan boo http://t.co/RQh76b73 #amazon #computer #fan #noise #somethingtodoonafridaynightisuppose

(22:10:00) @Skylar_Smythe That is BRILLIANT! :) :)

(22:10:29) @Tone_720 I'm sure the people who cleaned up afterwards toasted their success ;)

(22:10:47) @smartie999 *BIG HUG* yeah :)

(22:11:18) @Tone_720 Surprisingly it hasn't given me a near-fatal electrical shock. On this occasion. Result...

(22:11:31) @thatsjustme0 *tipsy slurs*

(22:11:56) @JoJoBass !

(22:12:48) @Davidlloydradio Are you OK? I can't remember if it's nostalgia or you've gone a bit bonkers...

(22:13:10) @sparkyannc @MegFitz One of your five a day (which is EASY for a vegetarian ;)

(22:14:09) I think there is a bed with my name on it upstairs. Not that I have been performing acts of impropriety with a sharpie. I used a metaphor.

(22:15:18) @xlaux Holy cow!

(22:27:17) @Davidlloydradio Heehee... I've never had an apple pie in Swiss Cottage. I may have to try it ;)

(22:27:34) @xlaux Fabulous! (I have this little bit of me which is kitsch ;)

(22:28:37) @Tone_720 That, I am afraid, is a startlingly (and somewhat shamefully!) accurate image. My colleagues at work will attend to that.. :/

(22:28:40) RT @Tone_720: @syzygy I now have an image of you sat there with a sharpie... or one of those label maker guns, putting your name on ever ...

(22:29:42) @caterham7 But fun.

(22:30:06) This could be my theme tune. And on that note, goodnight :) http://t.co/73wSvdv4

(05:06:31) Morning. I wonder if the hosepipe ban has been cancelled...

(05:28:02) @peterowen1 D'oh!

(05:29:27) @Ariadnes_web Pretty much. Certainly don't need it! I hope your day improves x

(06:14:10) @lloydbayley retail therapy - there are few things better after a busy day!

(06:30:34) @mostlygeordie Morning Amanda :) It was tipping down in Luton, but entirely not here on Baker St! London's odd climate :D Happy duveting!

(06:39:53) @mostlygeordie I will make sure I find time for a good basking! Have a wonderful day too :) x

(06:58:14) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar @TheDizzyMama Happy Thursday! We can do this :)

(07:17:53) @miz_shake68 Oh I pale into plain-ness compared to the radiant @JQP74 But good morning nonetheless!

(07:38:34) @mcdwebster I was referring to myself as "Mary's bitch" yesterday in the office. Everybody laughed (for some reason)

(07:38:39) @Debra_Mann YAY! THANK YOU! :) x

(07:40:40) @Debra_Mann heehee.. I don't think they'll be missed ;)

(07:40:54) @lloydbayley I love food shopping :) Especially when I'm hungry :D

(07:43:41) Just did that silly Cadbury Unwrap Vault thing. How hard is it not to use my cashpoint PIN? :D

(07:45:01) @Debra_Mann It's the damp that causes me to turn up my collar and wish for my duvet :D

(08:04:49) RT @BaldExplorer: The #BaldExplorer teaser video for episode four is now here: http://t.co/yOJMn2lD

(09:44:54) @lloydbayley That was from Misco - caused some hilarity in the office!

(10:13:41) @thatsjustme0 Morning Dee! How's Up North?

(10:18:03) @thatsjustme0 Forecast the coldest May in, like, 157 billion years.

(10:18:50) @lloydbayley Lookin' good!

(10:20:29) Readiness. Yeah. Or, well, not.

(11:09:39) @thatsjustme0 have you dug a tunnel?

(11:17:55) @Leafybear I can see it caused some vexation!

(11:23:57) @mostlygeordie ooh..! May I have one, please? #spoilmylunch

(11:36:12) @painted_duchess you're all right going down, but going up is a bit tricky (actually, that's well high!)

(11:36:24) @mostlygeordie *catches* Ta!

(12:34:41) @poots Hailing here, too! I ain't goin' out in that!

(13:02:54) @fiverscarrot Heh.. we've just had something similar.. it's a bit grey over there *points at the Gherkin* I wonder how long this'll last!

(16:31:49) @sharonlangridge @spikej77 Doing.

(16:35:05) @helenrick I got to my stretch limo stop before the thunder & lightning but I am still a drowned rat :D

(16:41:39) @BaronHawkey What gives? More work..?

(16:44:30) @schmiedesgruebl GO team Elise! x

(16:44:41) @schmiedesgruebl (and some sharks!)

(16:45:21) @BaronHawkey Gah.

(16:46:45) @Dappydoris Roger says yes - he is popping over.

(16:47:48) @Lycan33 @Dappydoris Darn it - I'm not from London. Nor am I called Roger. Also, the thunder has gone away. Except in my heart (and spleen).

(17:06:23) @Lycan33 A good mixture.. I'm Hampshire born, Sussex schooled, Canterbury educated and now lurking in Luton.. :D @Dappydoris

(17:07:24) @Dappydoris Thank you :) Safe it is,but superslow :/ @Lycan33 #everybodydrivesinwetweather

(17:10:43) Going home after a day of work which happened, at least. Did I survive? Or is this just the weirdest afterlife? I guess it's not so bad...

(17:11:36) @Lycan33 Thank you. I'll put them with the others' ;) @Dappydoris

(18:21:06) @Debra_Mann Oh my... chin up! This too shall pass. Are you on nightshifts?

(18:50:23) @lucyrboo ! @zoe_holly

(18:51:13) Going for a shower. That's where I do l my best thinking. Just hoping I can avoid thinking about work. Or needing to write anything down...

(18:52:48) @zoe_holly I was somewhat perplexed by @lucyrboo's tweet. I can do most euphemisms :D

(18:53:15) Lemsip can be a leisure drink too, right?

(18:53:38) @lucyrboo Heh. Yes! @zoe_holly

(18:58:17) @lucyrboo @zoe_holly Hahaahaha! I honestly don't know what you mean, but it's certainly given me plenty to think about :D #bewildered

(18:58:42) @CymraesCoch Gorgeous! :)

(18:59:24) @macsessed Not ten pints at the weekend, then..? ;)

(19:05:36) @macsessed heh.. I have enough trouble with my snozzle as it is :D

(19:26:51) @mostlygeordie I'm in mine. Quite oddly with a shirt on top (don't ask :D)

(19:58:07) @ptomtom48 YUM! No ice ;)

(19:58:22) @Debra_Mann Awww.. some happy memories, though, I hope :)

(19:58:49) @dt90spt Fantastic! :)

(22:00:10) @beershowjimmy Thanks, Jimmy! :) :)

(22:00:26) @smartie999 Heehee. I couldn't open it to work it out :D x

(22:04:43) A fun bit of internet telly with @BritishTechNews, @AlexGFox, @BBusschots and @ErikLanigan - we did NASA and Windows RT. Bed now.. night!

(05:11:34) Morning. Not sure I'm doing very we'll timewise. Better zoom....

(05:16:05) Strange coloured morning.

(05:23:35) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar @Lindylooloo @TheDizzyMama G'day, superLutonians! Have a top humpday!

(05:28:32) @kingfamily @fragmentz @Barlie40 @Peteatkin2 @davcar11 Bon matin à tout! No idea why I'm tweeting in French. Contre-temps, contre-temps.

(05:28:57) @lloydbayley @vobes G'day cobblers!

(05:30:05) @danholley_ Happy birthday!

(05:32:00) @goitsagch The sort of oddness that tends to happen this time of the morning :)

(05:32:53) @akrabat Ooh! Nice shortening URL! (I guess I should read the article :D)

(05:34:45) @vobes Non stop action here! Enjoy your Wednesday :)

(05:36:38) @kingfamily Zut alors! C'est formidable :) Un jour delicieux pour nous, sûr!

(05:37:28) @PeachyPics Oh we had all of that (except with beige stripes) here in Luton... happy Wednesday!

(05:56:12) @Peteatkin2 Thanks, Pete!

(05:57:16) @BaronHawkey Mornin'! Bit early!

(05:58:02) @AuntieJammy Morning Auntie! Happy humpday!

(06:01:10) @sweynh Hahaha! I work on the principle that if I'm less than ten minutes late I'm early (drives Beth mad :D)

(06:01:50) @Tactless_Claire Take your duvet with you #plan

(06:02:10) RT @alaindebotton: Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone - and finding that that's ok with them.

(06:03:19) @BaronHawkey I've had coffee.. my synapses have been jumpstarted as I hurtle Londonwards :D You OK?

(06:04:45) @AuntieJammy I'm in that strange nether world where sleepiness meets caffeination :D Heading to work.. all a bit early really - you?

(06:05:16) @LordGibbon Not quite yet - the rain has kept a lid on it for me :)

(06:06:37) @JQP74 Morning handsome bloke! I hope the day carries on in similarly cheeky style!

(06:08:07) How is the bottom of the M1 jammed up at this time of the morning? Traffic bleh! #hatecommuting

(06:08:40) @emmathegardener hurrah! Reckon we're done with frosts yet?

(06:09:39) @BaronHawkey Bit dim, yeah.. some bouncy music is required, I think :)

(06:10:28) @JQP74 @miz_shake68 ahhh I hope it goes well - big love to you both.

(06:11:43) @emmathegardener Thank you ~admires~ x

(06:12:47) @AuntieJammy Toast and coffee. Ohhyeah! What are you putting on top? (Of the toast, rather than the coffee :D)

(06:16:46) @BaronHawkey Anything from System Of A Down to Sub Focus :)

(06:17:33) @emmathegardener Cool :) It's knowing where to look, I guess :) have a great day!

(06:18:01) @miz_shake68 I hope it goes well for you, too x

(06:22:59) @RobJD thanks, bro. I can't believe I've been part of your family for 14 years! And for many, many more I hope :)

(06:23:19) @leica0000 YES!

(06:23:59) RT @poots: I'd like to use my 5000th tweet to wish @syzygy a happy 14th wedding anniversary, thank you for putting up with me so long!

(06:27:13) Today's special is a recollection that in just a few hours 14 years ago I stood in front of a man in a dress and got married to @poots.

(06:27:42) @leica0000 Eugh.

(06:30:24) @AuntieJammy how she's put up with me I have no idea :D

(06:30:50) @JuliaBall Thank you! X @poots

(06:34:42) @JuliaBall It was a special occasion :) @poots

(06:35:20) @Moominstrudel thank you :) x @poots

(06:36:11) @shellzenner Thank you, fab radio lady! @poots

(06:37:58) @LilyShambles Thanks, Lils! What are you doing awake at this time of the morning? :D

(07:12:21) @mcdwebster Uhuh

(07:12:28) @errolin Thanks, mate!

(07:12:41) @OlorinLorien Thank you :) :) @poots

(07:12:53) @LilacNun Thank you! :) :) @poots

(07:13:39) @LilyShambles Airhorn?

(07:14:00) @fandrews Thanks, Fran! Can't believe @poots has put up with me for so long! :D

(07:14:40) @akrabat Thanks, mate! :) @poots

(07:15:02) @sharonlangridge Thank you! :) :) (and thank you to @poots for making it possible!)

(07:17:21) @brennig Intermittent.

(07:19:57) @dt90spt *chuckles* I dread to imagine what the programmes would be like. Odious, most probably :D

(07:21:24) @dt90spt Thanks, mate! :) @poots

(07:25:41) Luton: home to 1000 Islamic no-go zones. (So.. that's peoples' houses, then?) http://t.co/4U5C3M5D <- stupid numpty man.

(07:28:25) @hark_the_herald Thank you :) :) It was a damp day like today when we got married. Running to the pub in the rain was ACE though :D @poots

(07:41:26) The Metro: Free rain hat. http://t.co/JVzXWmnQ

(07:45:27) @nedtypeseagoon Thank you! I am terribly happy now :) :) @poots

(07:46:33) @Dappydoris The orange is definitely you. The 'hair netto' pun is just a lidl too witty for this time of the morning, though ;)

(07:48:05) @thatsjustme0 YUM!

(07:48:12) RT @TheMediaTweets: Daily Mail marks National Stalking Awareness Day by publishing long lens shots of 6-year-old Suri Cruise, and 34 of ...

(07:50:55) @JemStone There aren't enough words in the English language to describe the reaction I had to that page.

(07:51:00) RT @JemStone: Some of the Ceefax archive/fan sites are a bit specialist to say the least. http://t.co/a3lkSU9v (impressed none the less)

(07:51:10) @JoOstermeyer Not really that easy to massage, is it? :/

(07:51:39) RT @jilliancyork: Guys, Sweden has a country Twitter account run by "a different Swede every week." BEST. IDEA. EVER. #sif12 @sweden

(07:52:17) @Bubble2009 *blushes* Thank you! :) x @poots

(07:53:52) Some really interesting (and lovely) tweets have compensated for being hijacked while making coffee at 7.45.. back to tender docs now, but.

(07:57:21) Apparently it's our ivory wedding anniversary. I'm sure @poots will be really pleased with the elephant I've got for her. Called 'Stampy'.

(08:05:25) @mostlygeordie Eep! Dressing gown?

(08:05:48) @Dappydoris @poots Thank you dear :)

(08:06:12) @TomKei @poots :D :D There sure will be!

(08:06:29) @Dappydoris Drink lots of water. Hope you feel better soon!x

(08:06:45) @thatsjustme0 Heehee.. that's the best kind of breakfast! :) :)

(08:06:56) @poots If she's stropping.. no! :D

(08:07:20) @GHOGIT @poots Thanks, Dad. Melt a dress for us, mate.

(08:07:31) @BeachHut81 HA! :D @poots

(08:08:59) @mostlygeordie That particular mental image is one that will keep me amused all morning. I am VERY easily pleased :D

(08:30:40) @Barlie40 Thank you! :) :) @poots

(08:30:54) @thatsjustme0 And the very same to you - hope it's dry over there in the Garden of England! :)

(08:31:35) I do believe I have done @mcdwebster's bidding.

(09:37:17) @brennig That site transcends anything I could ever attempt. I shall send all my photos to them.

(09:38:17) @brennig That's not far from Luton.. gosh. I was always amused by the anagram formed by conflating the L and I when it's spelt in capitals.

(09:38:43) @Ben_Toone Uhuh yeah ! @hueymorgan

(09:39:08) @Ben_Toone I got retweeted by @BillT last week. Made my day :)

(09:56:15) @brennig And its 1000 Islamic hotspots... :D

(10:07:35) @brennig I'm sure you'll strike it lucky some time ;)

(12:19:13) I am implicating @JunkmanUK in this... Rebecca Black meets Samantha Brick. REBECCA BRICK! This is unspeakably bad:

(12:20:04) @PontoonDock Heh.. I work from home on a Monday.. it's about the best I can achieve at this stage.. :D

(13:29:25) I am so totally meetinged out. Only two more to go today. TWO.

(13:30:51) @sharonlangridge Thank you! I might make some biscuits.

(13:34:17) @Dappydoris eeep! Not something to do with your pepperiness.? :/

(13:34:48) @streakmachine Yes. Definitely. http://t.co/hWl8uCVA

(15:42:17) Rainbow over Western House :) http://t.co/dhzmoTRw

(16:25:17) @sweynh nice work, sir! My worst time was 12 minutes late today.. not bad for me!

(16:27:09) Completely drained of all meeting juice now. Small child making unpleasant noises in the stretch limo. I will be glad to be home...

(16:27:26) @TheDizzyMama Helloo :)

(16:33:59) @TheDizzyMama I'm utterly exhausted.. quite wearing this being at work thing.. heading home now, though :) How is everything with you?

(16:40:22) @fridgemagnet2 What are the servers called? Got one with the name 'compost bin' yet?

(16:40:49) @thatsjustme0 Looks a bit moist...

(16:41:12) @zany_zigzag Please email away :)

(16:45:39) @shellzenner You can do EVERYTHING (in a radio sense) Congratulations versatile shell!

(16:46:58) @caritas730 aaww :) I love mine, too.

(16:47:53) @kingfamily Be shameless!

(16:59:01) @MissyMWAC You left the calories in the other cookies ;) I have always done the opposite - I eat whatever is left over (that's worse!)

(17:04:44) Accident in the third lane on the #M1 northbound near J5 - other two lanes are open.. the traffic is slow before it http://t.co/9O3PNoQU

(17:12:48) @Debra_Mann I have neglected you - I'm sorry! But I will understand x

(17:14:24) @gilliandonovan Or dolphins (and we're in BIG trouble) #Vogons

(17:29:17) @MissyMWAC Well I entirely endorse that approach. And might take it up, myself. Although how do you stop once you've started nibbling..? x

(17:32:55) @smartie999 Thank you! And that is a splendid idea! x

(17:47:07) @crabbyknickers Thank you! It's a miracle! @poots

(18:49:15) Fabulous anniversary gifts from @poots (thank you!) It's good to be home on a day like today. http://t.co/mInWAITE

(18:50:02) @claremac82 I'm glad you put the dash there.

(18:51:53) @ruskin147 Like a pointy Eiffel Tower.

(19:02:44) @claremac82 Tough day... made it to the end, though :)

(19:08:54) @joanneh234 yay! I'll certainly save you one :) @poots

(19:14:40) @Moominstrudel Happy birthday to the youngster!

(19:24:28) @smartie999 @crabbyknickers Can I come round to play?

(20:03:24) @kingfamily Bon nuit! x

(20:34:34) @crabbyknickers @smartie999 OH YEAHHH! :) One day, for sure x

(20:34:50) @joanneh234 @miz_shake68 @smartie999 @jqp74 I got 'em right here! *shakes my lemon puffs* #notaeuphemism

(20:35:53) Right.. I'm going to take a run up & see if I can jump over the rest of Wednesday. Seeya on the other side *scrapes ground with foot* night!

(05:28:11) @mostlygeordie Just about to launch :) Toothbrush time first!

(05:29:15) @emmathegardener Happy homegoing - there's actually a small amount of rain here in the heartlands :D

(05:30:43) Good morning. I'm not terribly good at Tuesdays, so please be patient with me. I'll doubtless have dismantled it by lunchtime.

(05:48:36) @kingfamily Morning :) Are you feeling all better?

(05:49:03) @emmathegardener Oh my..!

(05:50:27) @ClaireatWaves Morning, Claire :) Have a good trip to Oxford!

(05:51:29) @BaronHawkey Good morning, BH! Don't go working too hard today, mate - the #PervyCouncil wouldn't approve! ;)

(05:54:54) @italisalute Good morning, Alan :) Oh we need that rain! Only a small amount here..

(05:56:11) @The_Devotea Happy birthday! :)

(05:57:39) @emmathegardener Heh! That's, well, a bit back to front :D

(05:58:27) @BaronHawkey uhoh! We'll go easy on you ;)

(06:17:06) @The_Devotea Now ~that~ is a birthday! (sorry for being so late to the party!)

(06:19:10) @thatsjustme0 mornin' Deedee! I'll not let you down ;) Had your coffee yet? Need to keep you perky!

(06:19:43) @JQP74 Morning super-iron-man! You too! Take a brolly ;)

(06:21:29) RT @vobes: Need a video for your website? This is just what I do! http://t.co/BxVVNa5s

(06:23:20) @nxmee I like this: @ericries: Learn to code…with this handy flowchart. http://t.co/fMjWsuvw

(06:24:30) @thatsjustme0 Heh! I've still got the buzz from coffee number one.. hoping to avoid the crash when I get to the office by having another ;)

(06:24:55) @thatsjustme0 Sounds like I've got a dependency :D #addict

(06:25:53) @TheDizzyMama Morning :) it's nice ploppy rain - fine for umbrellas :) Have a good day with your girls whatever you end up doing! x

(06:26:34) @miz_shake68 @Ariadnes_web Good morning, splendid humans :) I wish you a delectable day!

(06:32:09) @miz_shake68 He's a sucker for punishment, eh? But such a handsome one ;) @JQP74 #WordsWithFriends

(06:33:37) @kingfamily Sounds like a lovely day ahead :) Back to school for Lenni (not a big fan :/) but Chris is off till Friday! Have a fab day! x

(06:34:26) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @BronwenPTHR @stopsleyvicar @Lindylooloo Damp Tuesday greetings from the M1! We need it!

(06:34:39) @thatsjustme0 You too! x

(06:35:45) @Ariadnes_web I wish you at least three delecting opportunities ;) @miz_shake68

(06:39:48) @PlainTalkingHR I'm out of bed and heading (generally) workwards... an overall win so far today, I think! How are you?

(06:43:56) @poots Oh no! What have I done..?! Will we be calling today the Post-it Note Crisis?

(06:59:02) @poots haaahaha! I hope Chris was OK with his :)

(07:00:27) A bit of impressive kit by BBC R&D: http://t.co/RIo3L4DZ (circuitously via @meeware)

(08:08:17) I want a barrister's wig to wear to meetings. I reckon it'll go really well with my pipe.

(08:09:53) @helenduffett What ya squeeing about? Anything I can help with? ;)

(08:12:31) @mostlygeordie That should be fairly easy to do - look up what the immigration service say you're not allowed to do/be and start doing it ;)

(08:24:56) @BaronHawkey Minty in a toothpaste way?

(08:42:48) @helenduffett I can and do. MINT CHOC CHIP ICECREAM!

(11:40:15) @Barwickgreen I am but a fool ;)

(11:40:50) Running a little behind on all the things I am supposed to be doing. Mainly due to meetings. I shall have some lunch #soupandsalad

(12:10:44) @Barwickgreen Do I have to take off the barrister's wig, though? :D

(12:13:11) @awhisper I'm going for a constitutional, but, on the basis of your tale of woe, I will bring my coat!

(13:09:16) I found an Oyster card & I handed it in and heaven knows I can't really express how I feel about it now. But clearly felt the need to share.

(13:10:10) @Dappydoris Heh. Pootube. (Sorry)

(13:11:16) @RadioKate ~raises hand~ An inspiration to bedroom recording artists everywhere.

(13:11:49) @sharonlangridge ~curtsies~

(13:12:42) @Dappydoris Not yet not yet.. I'm practically standing by the letterbox :D

(13:17:45) @brennig Ohh Morrisseey!

(14:18:38) I'm at a problem management meeting. My current objective is to get my team's list to a total of 99. For comedy value.

(17:12:11) @OlorinLorien Always plenty of laughter :)

(17:13:48) Work news 1: most of my team had a haircut over the weekend. What's with that? Have our barber cycles gone into sync? Except @Errolin

(17:15:22) Work news 2: I came into the office today to see a scrolling LED message saying "we (heart) our boss" - @Errolin assured me of no sarcasm :/

(17:16:37) @thatsjustme0 Utterly, utterly glorious :) Where is that? I can't place it :D (I am a passionate adorer of the seaside :)

(17:18:28) @smartie999 I'm not really a knight in shining armour.. more a tramp in a dustbin - but happy to help! :D

(17:20:37) I am so going to watch my stretch limo driver have a go on the M1 now. Watch him go. Zoom!

(17:21:46) @corrie_corfield Not upgraded, refreshed. You WILL be refreshed.Quite possibly by an individual in an orange t-shirt. Not me. @ms_howard

(17:25:48) @mssres Good heavens! Nice work, sir :)

(17:26:57) @corrie_corfield ~blushes~ I wish it could be :/ @ms_howard

(17:35:42) @poots I am on the neutrino coach. Or should I say "I will be.."? ;)

(17:44:00) @thatsjustme0 A perfectly lovely evening for it :) Enjoy! x

(18:07:40) @BaronHawkey Are ya heading home now, chief?

(18:58:02) @BaronHawkey Cool! :) My day was back to back meetings, pretty much. Surprised I actually got anything done! :D Fewer meetings tomorrow!

(18:59:55) Bah and blah... the PSU fan on my supposed-to-be-quite-quiet kitchen PC is rattling like a bad'un. Warranty time :/

(19:24:55) @smartie999 @joanneh234 Photos or it didn't happen ;)

(19:30:24) Having a high-level Skype meeting with fellow @Jamfolder bandmember. Hold my calls. I've got biscuits between my piano keys.

(20:54:11) @joanneh234 Gosh.. I do detect the slightest hint of ankle #wishfulthinking Thank you! :)

(20:54:54) @errolin Of course, Mr Ingleton - of course. Rule number 33? ;)

(20:55:30) @Tone_720 Badum-tish! VERY good, sir. Clearly a man who understands our oevre (heaven help you!)

(21:01:09) Better get going to bed. With this thought: There are just a few too many dubstep remixes of the Pacman theme on YouTube. Just a few. Night!

(21:02:00) @MissyMWAC @Jamfolder *chuckles* Yes. Bumbags.

(06:15:39) Good morning. Listening to @ewan's @ESCInsight Juke Box Jury with @theollymann and @helenzaltzman ... it's a pop podcast confluence. Gosh.

(06:16:19) @stopsleyvicar Good morning :) I wish you a remarkable Monday @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @TheDizzyMama @Lindylooloo

(06:16:49) @thatsjustme0 Gah..! I forgot to floss ;) Mornin' (when you're awake!)

(06:26:01) @lloydbayley Morning Lloyd. Just caught up with Bayley's Banter - some interesting topics of conversation :)

(06:27:19) @miz_shake68 Morning :) Because I'm worth it? ;) I definitely will.. need to keep myself young(ish) looking :D

(06:28:03) @JQP74 Morning :) You too! Another week of potential.. fun and cool stuff :)

(06:28:38) @lloydbayley Very organically :)

(07:00:47) @thatsjustme0 I've still got my dressing gown on :D (working from home today, but I would LOVE to go to work in my jammies :D)

(07:10:55) @OlorinLorien Morning :)

(07:26:45) @OlorinLorien All quiet here, ta.. Easter hols over for me & Beth as of this afternoon; the children go back tomorrow & Friday! How's you?

(07:29:40) @lloydbayley Organic in an 'alive and evolving' scene as opposed to 'not using pesticides' (a good way to keep the cleaner away ;)

(07:51:27) @lloydbayley It's certainly a style to have in the armoury.. yeah, keep it up!

(07:56:47) @lloydbayley if I get the opportunity I'll email - although you covered all of mine... either porridge, or peanut butter on toast :D

(07:57:45) @TheGarbagePOD Unidirectional is good for interviews & just your voice (hypercardioid) Omnidirectional is good for ambience... Go cardioid.

(07:58:29) @lloydbayley Well.. I'm a bit of a human dustbin, so I wouldn't say no ;)

(07:58:58) @OlorinLorien yay for short weeks! Hope work goes well and you stay warm :)

(08:00:47) @TheGarbagePOD No. But you would have the room acoustics to counter. See how it sounds to you - it's entirely your podcast and your tastes.

(08:14:02) @TheGarbagePOD Yup.

(08:33:28) @TheGarbagePOD No probs :) Have a good day.

(08:36:42) @SlimJimSim Excellent :)

(08:43:53) Simple plan for me and Lenni this morning - plant out these little badboys #sunflowers http://t.co/AkQjBFnY

(09:27:11) @alicearnold1 Heh.. I read that as "gave all the relationships names".. Binky, Nobby, Dilbert and Sludge...

(09:28:21) @sharonlangridge Polyamory.. what a fantastic word! That may have to go into my 'favourite sounding words' box.

(12:17:22) @Lindylooloo @PlainTalkingHR @bazmati2020 @humbershomemade @wkdstepmother @stopsleyvicar @poots @thedizzymama JAMYEH! http://t.co/Xuz7QZkQ

(12:18:06) Right.. better get on with work- in sole charge of the children, whom I have just given the chance to get hyper with a home-made smoothie :D

(12:39:31) @georgiebeaman @Lindylooloo I think what you've read says more about the D***y M*** than about England :)

(13:10:35) @Manda_Jones Hope you don't mind me tweeting you - excellent piece on Woman's Hour this morning. Articulate and sensible.

(13:17:27) Having such epic slowness with my work computer (even after pimping its memory) that I was 14 minutes late for the 2pm conference call. Oop.

(13:17:58) @caritas730 You may end up having a wine-gum hangover. Or an epic sugar rush!

(13:20:18) The next in the (steadliy growing) collection of Weird YouTube Videos my Dad has sent me: http://t.co/HQiXuaNx (quite brilliant, though)

(13:29:07) @Lindylooloo @georgiebeaman I try not to click links that lead to their online.. don't want to add oxygen! Seen this? http://t.co/6jX8iZwB

(13:42:21) @caritas730 I've been there. Keep your fluid levels up and go for a lie down :) x

(13:50:26) RT @MissyMWAC: To the Ethiopian who 1st looked at a coffee bean and said, "Hey, I wonder what THAT tastes like?...thank you.

(13:53:06) @CymraesCoch Love the colour :) I always enjoy your daily blipfotos :)

(14:13:13) Time for a little afternoon indulgence ... plenty there if you'd like some! http://t.co/YBEh7Nd5

(14:22:45) @mostlygeordie Thank heavens for that! As for grand plans.. just think yourself lucky.. I have absolutely NO capability for planning :D

(14:28:43) @mostlygeordie How do you take it? I can recommend an Americano with a touch of milk (my preferred style.. not really a fluffy coffee man!)

(14:49:39) Lenni: "Who would smoke tobacco if it's poisonous?"

(14:50:16) RT @kuramanga: Firs tweet from my new @raspberry_pi using my cmd Twitter client and a borked HDMI monitror

(15:01:35) @thatsjustme0 That's under European regulations - quick, before they prosecute you! ;)

(15:02:09) @simonlittle Epic session! :) :)

(15:02:34) @fandrews Oh no :( Hope you've got plenty of savlon!

(15:11:19) Completely broken Windows. http://t.co/Da4muZln

(15:53:27) @fandrews Understandable :) Hope it heals soon!

(15:54:00) @thatsjustme0 Yum! :) I'll call off the EU ;)

(16:07:06) @caritas730 What a recovery! :) :)

(17:50:22) If I were benevolent dictator, I would have "IGNORANT" tattooed on the foreheads of any jobsworths who let this happen: http://t.co/qL1eJVec

(18:02:01) Working late on some tender document responses. So far I've got "Your rich text is priceless" and "Your words move me to a whole new font."

(18:37:13) @goitsagch Oh that's bold!

(18:37:26) @CymraesCoch Oh no :/ *hugs* from over here x

(18:38:33) @theollymann It had all the elements of AMT but with bonus Europop and a Scotsman with a beard. What's not to like? ;) Hope you're well!

(18:39:12) Right. Down tools. Duck feathers are just SO unsuitable.

(18:45:12) @fridgemagnet2 You need to work on your Masterchef recipes...

(19:07:35) @CymraesCoch :'( My thoughts are with his family x

(19:08:37) I reckon I could be quite a good Tesco Delivery Van driver. "Good evening" *clattery whump* "Cheerio". Yeah. #nextcareermove

(19:12:32) @JoeFHall Way to lose context! :D

(19:13:26) @mostlygeordie Qu'est ce-qu'on fait a dix heurs-et-demie? (With apologies for broken Frenchishness!)

(19:17:21) @mostlygeordie Fantastique!

(20:43:01) @JQP74 Heehee! Thanks for the namecheck ;) I'm "cacophonyx" on #WordsWithFriends, @joanneh234 and @miz_shake68 (I'm ironing now, though!)

(21:15:47) @joanneh234 @JQP74 @miz_shake68 That's the spirit! :) :)

(21:16:24) @JQP74 Oh I haven't ~nearly~ done all of ours.. enough shirts for the week and a couple of the children's! @joanneh234 @miz_shake68

(21:16:42) Bedtime. Once I've put my shirts away. That's how I roll(!)

(21:18:36) @brennig Heh. That would be entirely counterproductive! Night, mate!

(21:18:46) Bon nuit! :)

(21:20:08) @sharonlangridge N'night! :)

(21:20:45) @PlainTalkingHR Dormez bien!

(07:32:38) Morning. I like the sunniness. ~approves of what God's done with the day~

(07:46:48) @Dappydoris Mornin' Ms Doris. Are ya fine and feisty today? x

(07:47:32) @mostlygeordie Absolutely! And it would be a shame to miss out on the spring goodness... off geocaching with my brother's family later! You?

(07:47:40) Right. I'm going out front.

(07:48:32) In other news, I'm considering making a doctor's appointment. Yes. I'm a bloke. Consdering a doctor's appointment (it's me snozzle)

(08:01:55) @hadenmaiden I've just been told by Doctor @Poots that actually it's my own fault for poking my finger up it :D I shall leave it a week :)

(08:02:33) @Dappydoris Heehee.. post-sleepover breakfast is (sort-of) magical :) We're good, ta.. just getting going, really! Geocaching later yay! x

(08:03:26) @mostlygeordie Can you do your coursework in the park? ;) Geocaching is like a high tech treasure hunt. I ~love~ orienteering! Go you! :) :)

(08:06:19) @Pewari But if you go, it means you can come back :) Safe drive home!

(08:09:41) @miz_shake68 Had some sinus surgery just over a year ago.. hasn't really been right since :D Simply trying to keep my fingers out of it now!

(08:10:18) @mostlygeordie I ended up playing 24 games.. several hours a day. NOT good! I've given up (also it's Zynga now, and I'm not keen on them!)

(08:10:46) @GHOGIT *early morning groan* ;)

(08:11:29) @Dappydoris Ohhh yeah! :) Have a good one, too. We should BOTH boo again soon. You are funny and interesting. I am noisy :D Happy Sunday!

(08:11:59) @hadenmaiden *badum tish* I'm lucky that @poots is keeping an eye on me. Who nose what might happen? ;)

(08:21:03) @miz_shake68 But @JQP74 is so beautiful.. how can he have bad habits? Me..? They're the only things that keep me sane ;)

(08:21:11) @Dappydoris Hurrah! :)

(08:21:43) @mostlygeordie I've got quite a few "Words with Friends" games going on.. but it can sometimes be a day or so between sessions these days :D

(08:22:11) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar @TheDizzyMama @Lindylooloo Morning morning! Enjoy the Sunday (bit chilly!)

(10:24:50) Easter lilies on the font http://t.co/x1Cf17pa

(10:43:40) @TheDizzyMama @PlainTalkingHR @bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar @lindylooloo It's up to a toasty 7 degrees C now ;) #Luton

(10:43:55) @PlainTalkingHR Thank you :)

(13:40:49) I found Forgotten Station (http://t.co/JYi7dK9n) #cgeo #geocaching

(14:14:02) Never too cold for a paddle in the river Lea :D Didn't find the geocache, though.. ~sigh~ http://t.co/uniTs9vG

(14:44:48) Happy geocaching kids... with STICKS! http://t.co/FYnpyiou

(14:45:34) @joanneh234 only a teensy bit of paddling.. I kept my boots on! :D

(14:47:15) I found King of the Castle (http://t.co/3Oka6BS3) #cgeo #geocaching

(15:05:10) I found Because You're Worth It! (http://t.co/Rt5I4TPH) #cgeo #geocaching

(16:45:31) Back home after a fun (if occasionally damp!) geocaching afternoon with @nxmee, @superalora, @Matildamouse & @junkmanuk - now: BTCC catchup!

(16:51:17) @caritas730 I'm catching up now - just saw Plato get his in the second race ;)

(16:54:05) @joanneh234 I was in my DM boots - luckily they held out the water! Can't say the same for the rain, though!

(17:56:06) @fiverscarrot Nah.. just a bit sore - I need to take better care of it ;) Hope. you're feeling much better today :)

(17:57:18) @caritas730 Holy cow. Holy. Cow. That was unbelievably cheeky! Reckon they'll adjudicate? D'you know what happened to Newsham? He went away!

(18:00:55) Wow! What a tense #BTCC day of races. Not sure Jason Plato is Mr Popular around the paddock..but was he ever? Top zoomy action, nonetheless.

(18:08:02) @awhisper Three really good races today :) Just what #BTCC is all about! Dumb question: do you know what happened to Newsham in race 3?

(19:05:56) @joanneh234 Oh my. I do hope there isn't a conspiracy to murder you!

(19:06:53) @awhisper How unlucky - one lap short of the finish! :/

(19:22:04) @newshamracing Safe drive home - and congratulations on a remarkable day at Donnington!

(19:23:20) Gosh.. not quite the final result I was expecting from race 3 of today's #BTCC! http://t.co/nLlVZzmv

(19:36:15) @joanneh234 :D Haha!

(21:14:47) @smartie999 Funnily enough I got one earlier - @Poots is VERY good at that sort of thing :) Right now I'm more concerned about my dry skin.

(21:16:31) @jopijedd What a day of racing, eh? :D

(21:21:31) @dt90spt Lovely :) Very springy!

(21:21:52) @jarbennett Sounds like you're having a BRILLIANT time :)

(21:22:41) @jopijedd Oh absolutely - it's been terribly enthralling :D But it's a Sunday, and sometimes it's good to have a day off, right? ;)

(21:23:05) @Sk287 You were right the first time :) (unless you REALLY want me to get bare with you. It's not pleasant :D)

(21:25:52) Off to bed. There is a scientific formula for it, but I am too tired to work out what it is, so I shall go and brush my teeth. Night!

(06:55:27) @mostlygeordie mornin' :) Stumbling downstairs and ineptly filling the coffee machine for me :D

(06:56:09) @miz_shake68 @JQP74 Morning Twitter Sibling Superstars :) Happy weekend!

(06:57:23) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar @BronwenPTHR @TheDizzyMama @Lindylooloo And a sleepy good morning to you:)

(07:23:19) @kingfamily Morning :) All still in jammies here.. a good place to be :) x

(07:24:03) @mostlygeordie Oh definitely not lycra - I need something a bit more forgiving :D Have a splendid day!

(07:29:05) @PlainTalkingHR Ooh no.. up an' at 'em ;) Caffeine boost is just what I need to get going :D Have a wonderful Saturday!

(07:52:40) @smartie999 You win this rather delightful plinth on which is placed a solid gold moral high ground :) (honestly - admiration!)

(07:54:26) @FlossieTeacake You and me both (if my waking dreams were anything to go by! ) Morning :)

(07:55:04) @smartie999 Wow. Sparrowhawk?

(07:55:23) @lloydbayley !

(07:56:07) @lloydbayley Clearly the bottle's not quite big enough :D

(07:57:50) @smartie999 I would never dare pick out clothes for @poots, certain age or no!

(07:58:23) @JQP74 I do hope so!

(07:58:55) @smartie999 ~hug~

(08:00:13) @kingfamily Oh I love pottering. If I could do that as a full time job I would!

(08:00:55) Time for a shower and then some tidying .. and some webcam wrestling.

(08:03:31) @akbea @trakgalvis @evilflea What a heartlifting story :)

(08:04:37) I would like to assure @poots that I do not intend to do wrestling on webcam. Wrestling ~with~ a webcam. Yes.

(08:21:11) @akbea With all the tragic stories that are so often told, a glimmer of hope like that is beautiful- I loved the bit about his mum ageing :)

(08:21:58) @smartie999 Oh that is so tragic!

(08:22:58) One of the best things to come out of Finland: http://t.co/7rd1Lq8C

(08:46:49) @thatsjustme0 Can't see the former getting much of an audience (especially since I was still in my jammies at the time :D) #notagoodlook

(09:10:12) @thatsjustme0 Clothes are optional*.

(09:10:53) @helenduffett That happens to me most weeks.

(09:12:43) @the_anke Gosh. Definitely understandable that you need to take stock. Sending you peace and calmness.

(09:17:17) @thatsjustme0 :D I've moved from pyjamas to a long sleeved t-shirt and shorts. Still not quite wrestling lycra, but hey.. nearly there ;)

(09:18:08) The webcam is now behaving. All I did was plug the cable modem in somewhere else. Utterly bewildering #ineptotech

(10:00:27) @Dappydoris Here are @smartie999's lovely boos: yesterday's buskers: http://t.co/0Ph7J8ta; boo she thought of for you: http://t.co/evi7Dqmi

(10:01:07) @thatsjustme0 I'm trying to do screw some screws into an awkward chest of drawers. Not nearly as fun as carrot cake. Or wrestling(?)

(11:00:18) @ajlanghorn I find I have to replace my headphones because they get broken:/ The more expensive, the more frustrating it is when they break!

(11:04:17) @claremac82 Heh. Both can be considered something of a result :D Have a brililant weekend :)

(11:06:40) Made the most of a miraculously recovered webcam and @poots being out to tidy "Technology Corner". Plugs are now labelled. @Nxmee helped :)

(11:08:15) @mostlygeordie D'oh! There were a LOT of avoidable mistakes on that voyage, I understand. Mainly it was the hitting the iceberg one, though.

(11:20:10) @ajlanghorn Even the ones with replaceable cables have.. well.. very expensive replaceable cables! :D

(12:31:57) @thatsjustme0 On or off?

(12:37:37) @awhisper @TouringCarTimes Hoping for another front of the grid position for @newshamracing after qualifying :) Splendid!

(12:52:22) About a million half-completed coffee loyalty cards: YES. Library card: NO. Oh dear.

(12:53:02) @thatsjustme0 Aoooowwwwww! :/

(12:53:24) Wearing my spare hoodie. It's not quite as big. Or purple.

(14:21:58) Nice bit of @DunlopBTCC qualifying, I think: http://t.co/XsOoZpmw MUCH better than Formula 1.. :D

(14:40:28) That Plato chap is SO jammy. Quite a good driver, but very jammy. #BTCC

(14:50:07) @_forky Oh my goodness. VERY.

(14:50:24) @caritas730 Heh. Nicely put!

(15:00:59) @crabbyknickers Ninja Squirrels? :/ I'm keeping mine in pots until the last moment!

(15:01:08) @TeamESRacing @newshamracing @ChrisJamesBTCC Congratulations!

(15:02:59) @crabbyknickers I may well begin work on some kind of deterrent (electrical or water-based) for the anti-sunflower lobby... :/

(15:04:05) @caritas730 Absolutely.. better encourage him to keep driving - we wouldn't want him to move into commentary, though, would we? ;)

(16:33:20) @PhillipaJC Hello! Welcome back :)

(16:45:27) @PhillipaJC I'm doing OK, ta - been enjoying the spring weather :) How have you been?

(16:59:37) @PhillipaJC Wow.. sounds like life is moving on apace! Good to have you back - hope you can stick around!

(18:55:02) In this evening's musical endeavours (cacophonous, since the children were 'rocking out' on electric guitar & bongos) I broke two nails. Ow.

(18:55:30) @thatsjustme0 You sure like yer carrots ;)

(19:17:50) RT @nxmee: Rocking out with @syzygy and lenni in the studio!

(19:18:40) @PhillipaJC I wish you love and laughter on the way - and if I can offer a smile here and there, too, all the better! :)

(19:22:50) @SimplyTanny The World has got Talent ;)

(20:01:31) @thatsjustme0 That's the cake effect, dear Dee!

(20:59:56) @kingfamily Oh no! I hope you get lots of sleep and your sinuses feel ALL better in the morning. Night night, and God Bless you x

(21:18:37) @BaronHawkey Night night! I hope you have a most fabulous sleep! :)

(21:19:56) @riggwelter #Fizzyvitamin (best I can do :D)

(21:36:53) Cat ding. It's true. Well it was until I broke it. Again.

(22:53:26) @lloydbayley Mornin' Lloyd. You're on point.. I'm just about to take my rest! ;) Night!

(22:53:40) @shellzenner If you insist! :D

(22:54:13) A late goodnight.. some ponderings this evening, yes.. but also some technological conundra. Like a tundra. etcra. Night night!

(05:33:18) @TheIrishHorse @Zararugosa Morning :)

(05:34:05) @JQP74 Morning mate. ~whispers~ I've got a half day today yay!

(05:35:10) @vobes @lloydbayley Morning/evening gents! Great to hear the Vobes show is back - always great listening! Have a great day/sugar buying ;)

(05:35:58) Good morning. Hoping for an early arrival in the office so I can be all done by 1pm... the weekend starts early yay!

(06:01:33) @trevypoos It's a great way to start the weekend - have a good one!

(06:01:55) @JQP74 You too!

(06:02:57) @mostlygeordie It is a bit froggy :D Have a lovely day - drive safe!

(06:04:04) @vobes I do believe it's where Lloyd was off to :)

(06:10:14) @gilesbabbidge and a what-ho to you too!

(06:11:20) @BaronHawkey Happy Friday, mate. The weekend is merely hours away!

(06:42:23) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @stopsleyvicar @poots @BronwenPTHR @Dizzy_Mama And a very happy, lucky #FF to you too!

(06:44:56) @PlainTalkingHR All done - super early this morning :) Just topping up with coffee before I get on with the work of the day :) :)

(06:55:04) @miz_shake68 @JQP74 Hurrah! :) Enjoy yourself!

(06:55:23) @painted_duchess I am NEVER cheeky *pinches your bottom* :D

(06:55:30) @painted_duchess PS Thanks lovely! :) #FF

(07:04:08) @painted_duchess Oh my! I'll see if I can find the time! No idea what to perform yet. Might have to raid Lenni's Miley Cyrus karaoke CDs ;)

(07:11:49) @mostlygeordie Oh my.

(07:12:15) Right. Well. Today hasn't started quite as expected, but I'm going to carry on as if nothing is amiss. And not swear at the printer.

(07:13:34) Although I am not looking forward to going to the schedulers to find out why I've got an extra day payment in April. *sigh* Totally rubbish.

(07:19:23) @johndredge HURRAH! I'll listen and retweet!

(07:21:14) The man's done it again.. @johndredge has made some more comedy:

(07:22:02) @johndredge I'll save it till later, then tweet it again ;)

(07:31:57) @mostlygeordie What about the scheduling system? Can I give that a good what-foring, too? :D

(07:32:15) @BaronHawkey Thank you! :) :) #FF

(07:32:51) @mostlygeordie No. Just a rather unpleasant mental image ;) I'll go and have a word with him at half-nine if you like? :D

(07:33:19) @_forky @pervywilbury @painted_duchess @sqfreak @ian262 @melodimen @harzer01 @juliethaley Thank you, your forky loveliness! :) #FF

(07:33:39) @mostlygeordie "other" *shudders*

(08:23:56) @mostlygeordie Oh I will. I do like a bit of what-foring. Especially at this one of the morning ;)

(08:51:45) @106jack I believe light pollution has an effect on nocturnal birds, too - they can't mate (maybe it's too off-putting with the light on ;)

(08:53:40) @thatsjustme0 Impressive!

(09:27:53) I'm a little bit late (one hour twenty-seven minutes) for a meeting with my boss.

(09:28:15) @dt90spt But still styelish.

(09:49:53) @ShortyMcStompy I have since not been able to locate him. I just hope he's not gone away to cry somewhere ;)

(10:36:03) @brennig What..? @prodnose has got a podcast? *rummages*

(10:37:12) @brennig His rightful place!

(11:12:08) @Dappydoris It's the rather savage ear piercing of small children in the window of Claire's that does my head in.

(12:13:42) All too much rushing about in this life.

(12:56:14) @poots stumble, maybe :D see you soonish - doing the Bricket Wood Detour now xx

(12:59:07) Octopus.

(14:21:27) @riggwelter Kies truly does suck - it failed to update my Galaxy S because there were long filenames (non 8.3) in the SD card :/ Awful!

(14:23:42) @LutonNewsConnie Back of Dallow Road? One of the industrial units, I'd guess..

(15:14:33) The UK prides itself on its poorly organised shambleses, I'll have you know.

(15:34:45) @riggwelter How's it looking?

(15:42:35) @PlainTalkingHR Yes, now I've seen some bewildered looking lads in their early twenties trying to give instructions to a crowd of families:D

(15:43:56) @Moominstrudel That's a gorgeous photo!

(15:56:35) @riggwelter Gutted! (Although I took matters into my own hands & splatted a custom ICS ROM for my old-school Galaxy S) ~slight smirk though~

(15:58:24) @MissyMWAC No......! (Well, OK, yes) @BritishTechNews @claw0101

(16:11:19) @Pewari And the downside of iPhone battery life is the non-replaceable battery :/ (got a USB charger?)

(16:35:26) @Pewari Oh my..! Glad you made it.. the street of Edinburgh are narrow & catacombian(?!) Hope you're having a brilliant time :)

(16:56:47) @gilliandonovan Not if you sprinkle them on a table and lick 'em up with your tongue. Actually... yik.

(17:24:27) Why are lemon puffs so expensive? WHY? £1.69 absurd. I daresay you'd not get much change from a thousand pounds.

(17:29:59) Decapitated Easter Bunny. 35p. http://t.co/l1rECdqx

(17:55:33) Could someone tell my daughter that air freshener is NOT a suitable alternative to soap..?

(17:58:16) @MissyMWAC It is NOT a euphemism.Jacobs Lemon Puffs are among the most gorgeous of biscuits. http://t.co/Eo0zqiHQ <- HOW MUCH..?

(19:06:29) @JuliaBall Ha! Not till she's a student :P

(19:08:33) @artistsmakers Worthing. YEAH.

(19:10:30) RT @artistsmakers: Sussex Police filming teenagers in local park. Teenagers told off for playing Enya too loud #fb

(19:10:54) Now playing Enya to Lenni to explain how hard it is to play too loud. /cc @artistsmakers

(19:17:27) @SimplyTanny Honestly.. we just played Book Of Days at high volume in the kitchen. It was a true bonding experience :) :) @artistsmakers

(19:55:49) My studio is SUCH a heinous mess at the moment. I shall tidy as soon as I've finished this fruitcake. http://t.co/uvG7DPlG

(19:58:51) @riggwelter @fiverscarrot Porpoise. Full.

(20:03:29) @riggwelter @fiverscarrot Is there any other sort? :D

(20:18:28) @mostlygeordie It was in my hand - the crumbs are on the bit of kitchen roll just to the right of the orange fizzy vitamin ;) Still there :D

(20:28:43) @fiverscarrot They're very versatile. And cropped up at the end of a busy day. They should train them to type.

(20:34:53) Not Going Out is back. And already some proper laughs :) Proper comedy - and on #BBC1 :)

(20:38:07) @BaronHawkey Yup. And Tim Vine :) Quite amusing.

(21:24:41) @Barwickgreen I've just spotted how close the laptop is to its balance point on the edge.. I just put it there for a moment - honest! :D

(22:45:07) @smartie999 I loved your cacophony boo. WELL music. @Dappydoris

(22:45:59) Completely ridiculous IP camera behaviour bothering me this evening. Not a wi-fi signal strength or PSU issue. May well be rust, then...

(22:46:31) @smartie999 I need to make more music and boos and the like. And no.. my studio is even worse now. Got all geeky and tried to fix something.

(22:53:24) @smartie999 I would love to. But also I'd love to play myself. PLAY! Going to bed now, though, cos it's late. N'night!

(22:53:43) Off to bed. I think I have a plan. Night!

(06:33:04) @JQP74 Morning early bloke! I do believe it's Thursday. Quite possibly!

(06:33:34) @Genloo o no! Hope the egg was tasty nonetheless (and didn't taste of burnt washing up sponge!)

(06:34:11) Good morning. I shouldn't be typing at this time of day, but I am. I think there will be the need for coffee soon, too. Definitely.

(06:40:48) An interesting (if slightly morbit) view of Luton - pedestrian and cyclist casualities 2000-2010: http://t.co/gtjsT7Sl (via @GuardianTech)

(06:53:49) @claremac82 You have all the required qualifications ;)

(06:54:15) @PlainTalkingHR Mornin' Bina :) It is a very hurtly week, isn't it! :) :) :)

(08:04:50) @PlainTalkingHR Doing much better now I've had coffee and breakfast! Nearly human, in fact ;) Busy day ahead, though.. where's my list? :D

(08:05:12) @Genloo Amazing exploding eggs :/ Hope the replacement was more successful :)

(08:05:31) @mostlygeordie I have had coffee and breakfast, so now I can type. Nearly. :D Have a good day! x

(08:07:10) @gilliandonovan *spits out virtual coffee*

(08:16:58) @lloydbayley Listening to your RR - funnily enough Wells' Banana Bread Beer is my tipple of choice :) :) Not so fond of Hobgobin, though!

(08:17:30) @vobes @lloydbayley Morning/Evening gents! Happy podcasting! (Just spotted a half hour special from you in my feed, Richard YAY!)

(08:17:45) @Rebs_41 Pineapple juice! Feel better soon x

(08:18:15) @Monika_Hale Don't you just click the 'favourite' button again, and it unfavourites it..?

(08:19:19) And so to work (again)

(08:19:51) @Monika_Hale If I click the little 'star' by a favourite tweet, it unfavourites it for me (on the Twitter website, anyway).. I'll try it! :)

(09:21:53) @Monika_Hale from my experience they automatically disappear from the list - I do exactly the same with YouTube videos I'm waiting to watch!

(09:23:14) Captivated. No. That's not it. Captive.

(09:50:30) @willowHart I am a captive captain called Captain Captive, capably capsizing ;)

(10:10:38) @willowHart Well. That's for me to find out. Or something :D

(10:18:08) 5 minutes of sitting on my foot waiting for a conference call to start, and now I have pins & needles. What's the number for Claims Direct?

(10:18:33) @willowHart I have a dark blue fleece. Quick drying, so halfway there ;)

(10:18:43) @mostlygeordie plinth #excellentwords

(10:19:01) @warriorgrrl No. It is horrible and evil.

(10:19:24) @warriorgrrl (or it wasn't when I thought I might have done a couple of years back.. it might be better now :/)

(10:38:18) @HellenBach I did the wibbly wobbly ankle dance.. sorted it out (and looked like a numpty)

(10:38:48) @mostlygeordie @lydiahear That is a GOOD name. Plinth Charming.

(10:39:14) @willowHart I have no idea.. it'll be on the ironing label thing, won't it? :D

(10:47:04) @HellenBach Wow fantastic! I'm in BH most of the time, yeah (occasional visits to Salford execpting!) What you up to at the old ice rink? ;)

(10:47:33) @willowHart :D It says "Technology Operations" on the chest and in large letters on the back. Quite embarrassing ;)

(10:50:36) @caritas730 @mostlygeordie @imagit I'm on my PC and can understand none of this :D

(11:06:51) Project and survive.

(11:33:09) @HellenBach *admires* :) :) :)

(11:33:45) Coffee and chocolate. Purity in delight. And the breakfast of champions.

(12:26:56) @peterowen1 Again?

(12:28:19) @LilyShambles Entropy.

(12:28:30) @LilyShambles Both. And yet neither.

(12:34:00) You really get a different type of banter on LinkedIn... the difference being there is none at all.

(12:44:20) I do believe I've said this before, but it bears repeating: I think I might be immune to electric hand dryers.

(12:44:47) @streakmachine And those that aren't seem to be quite, well, anodyne :/

(14:21:42) @Wymroyal That would explain the rather nasty shock I get when I wash my electric hands ;)

(16:06:20) Having a rather poor Twitter experience while hurtling. Slightly worse than normal. Has someone stolen their stylesheets..? Or is it me.. :/

(16:24:18) @TemplesMinistry Have you changed your password? It may also be worth reviewing what apps have access to post to Twitter on your behalf...

(16:34:07) @PlainTalkingHR I hope you ate well - you need plenty of energy to supervise the moving of furniture!

(16:58:21) @LilyShambles I always hurtle over any hurdle :p Hope you're enjoying some kind of sunshine - still got a hurty head?

(17:00:53) @mostlygeordie I try to avoid hurling of any description :D Bucks is bright this afternoon! (Trundling, now, in the Milton Keynes area :D)

(18:00:32) @streakmachine are you being followed around by a cellist..?

(18:02:44) @streakmachine I think it would make an interesting Audioboo ;)

(18:04:28) @RuthBlackett ~sympath~

(18:45:59) @Lumesse I've got your back :)

(18:51:02) @RobJD @poots I have a suspicion @GHOGIT is still there :D

(19:21:17) @fridgemagnet2 Get yer angle grinder out :D

(19:38:02) @LilyShambles I appreciate your big cares :) My heart's tickety boo (literally?) ta :) Enjoy your evening - please :)

(20:58:11) RT @BritishTechNews: BIG Show NOW with @ErikLanigan @SarahJaneUK @Syzygy @EwenRankin and Carey Holzman http://t.co/D5Vfj7qY

(22:14:14) @smartie999 Oh you. I'm going to bed. Night!x

(22:14:33) @helenduffett Lordy.

(22:15:32) Off to bed. An entertaining show with @ErikLanigan @SarahJaneUK @EwenRankin and Lego Hard Drive Gunboy this evening. Night night then!

(04:48:24) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar Super early good morning to you. Wednesdays hold potential. Probably :D

(04:48:50) @LilyShambles lost consciousness?

(04:50:41) Morning. Coffee now then.

(05:39:39) @JQP74 Mornin' John :) You're up early!

(05:42:21) @BaronHawkey I'm sure there's an app for that. Sleep app-nia (badum-tish!) Morning, mate :)

(06:15:51) @Ariadnes_web Have a splendid trip! Looks like it might be a good day for it :)

(06:28:47) @thatsjustme0 Morning :) Good sleep?

(06:29:21) @sharonlangridge Good rule! :) What about another rule for while the coffee brews?

(06:29:49) @JQP74 Hope you don't have millions of emails to catch up on!

(06:32:38) Listening to Thinking Allowed at 1.5x speed is about as much brainial overload as I can take. I've no chance with In Our Time at that speed!

(06:34:01) @stuartdj Supremo? You don't work for a local newspaper, do you? ;)

(06:37:28) @miz_shake68 Good morning :) Yup - plying my trade.. Wednesday tends to be my meetings day(!) I'm saving myself for a second coffee! @JQP74

(06:38:38) @miz_shake68 Good luck with the opticians - getting new glasses? If so, do we get a photo? ;) @JQP74

(06:40:46) @thatsjustme0 Thank you :) The yearning to return to bed (with associated wiggling :D) is merely lurking.. the day begins! Have a good'un ☀☕

(06:41:15) @PervyWilbury Daily greet! @BaronHawkey

(06:42:08) @miz_shake68 I've been up for two hours ;) Have a good day too! @JQP74

(08:40:59) I am struggling to operate without further coffee action. Mustn't have slept all that well last night :/

(09:18:39) @ixdStudio Brilliant idea! In fact, I may do a weekly Archers podcast, which features one not-necessarily salient word from each episode :D

(09:21:04) @Mad4mogzz hehe :D A cuppa? ;)

(09:21:29) @warriorgrrl NOOOOOOO!

(09:21:52) @WhimsicalWife This too shall pass x

(09:22:20) @jarbennett I'll do my best :) Your inspirational aphorisms help x

(11:15:51) Listening to @MissyMWAC and @Claw0101's fine podcast, I wonder if Missy's ever had the best food in the world: Beer Battered Onion Rings.

(11:16:07) @PlainTalkingHR True.

(11:16:40) @Mad4mogzz Did ya get your doughnuts? ;)

(11:16:54) @jarbennett It's flashing. Quite distractingly ;)

(11:55:26) So far today I have had a sugar disaster and a sandwich disaster. One more for the full set!

(11:55:48) @claw0101 *chuckles* *checks cholesterol* @MissyMWAC

(11:56:02) @LilyShambles Morning!/Afternoon!/Yes!

(11:57:45) @mostlygeordie *gulp*

(12:28:08) @stopsleyvicar Hope it went OK, David! @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots

(12:30:32) @paul_steele Wow!

(12:31:16) @mostlygeordie But how much? And by whom? :D

(13:11:00) @Purrfunct ~snif~

(14:25:42) There's definitely some kind of bug apparent in this video.. just watch for ten seconds..! http://t.co/qvKPeJ28

(14:26:51) @Purrfunct Oh Bleshoo for asking ;)

(15:48:29) @LilyShambles Welcome! (I think!)

(15:48:43) @BaronHawkey @PervyWilbury But avoid spillage :)

(15:49:18) One more meeting today and then.. er.. a bit of work.

(15:49:52) @BaronHawkey @PervyWilbury I'm afraid so. jay cloth ahoy!

(18:48:13) @jarbennett Moderately well, thank you - lots of laughter around me, which is always a good thing :)

(18:48:58) @fiverscarrot still working on that one! :D

(21:25:13) Sleeping. Underrated under most circumstances. Night!

(05:41:49) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @stopsleyvicar @poots @BronwenPTHR And an early good morning to you as I hurtle towards London..

(05:44:23) @BaronHawkey Mornin BH! Post-bank-holiday Tuesday... hope it's a copable-with one!

(05:47:20) @Zararugosa Good morning :)

(05:49:20) @PlainTalkingHR Yup.. Going for an earlier bus this morning - hoping to beat the rush hour :)

(05:49:46) @BaronHawkey There will be coffee :)

(05:50:29) Good morning. Tursday... how many ways do I tolerate you? Let me count them: about two.

(06:16:35) @TheIrishHorse Heehee... administrative error! Still only seven days :) But that's still a lot of days to be working :/

(06:17:25) @miz_shake68 Mornin' :) Enjoy your day!

(06:17:47) @PlainTalkingHR That's what I just did ;)

(06:18:48) @italisalute Morning, Alan :) Lots of warmth and photosynthesis ahead, I hope! Have a great day!

(06:19:05) @mostlygeordie Shhhhhh yes ;)

(06:20:32) @vobes Safe drive!

(06:20:55) @PlainTalkingHR have a happy day too!

(07:19:25) @PervyWilbury Pfftt! Great concept! (And I'd buy one ;)

(07:38:31) If you like your comedy weird with electronical music in the background, this is quite a marvel:

(07:43:09) Nice and blippy noises:

(07:43:35) @BitsyVonMuffin Good morning, Liz. A lovely weekend, thank you :) Hope you're in fine fettle this sunny morning! :)

(07:49:58) @BitsyVonMuffin (Secretly, I quite like the rain.. especially since there's such a shortage of water ;) Enjoy your day! :) :)

(07:59:49) @JQP74 Mornin' mate :) Enjoy your day off!

(08:00:16) @BitsyVonMuffin Heehee... I like 'em both (but yeah.. summer rain is excellent!) I draw the line at horizontal freezing drizzle :D

(08:00:36) @iamamro You're in a room.

(08:07:31) @JQP74 I'm a bit sleepy, but definitely alive (and enjoying the sunshine!) Working today.. busy busy busy.. trying to avoid meetings!

(08:23:39) @Moominstrudel Sometimes, dear strudel, I think you're just chasing rainbows ;)

(08:39:57) @BlueMoon_11 @willowHart Morning you two gorgeous people :) x

(09:18:11) @BlueMoon_11 @willowHart Such wonderful decadence.. I've been working for nearly three hours ;)

(16:30:32) What a type of day! Only 33% frustrating, and 58% productive. I'm now on a completely full stretch limo home, which is warm at best.

(16:36:54) @Dappydoris Lenni still tries to fly from time to time. I admire her indefatigability.

(16:38:16) Hey, @BluebieH, why do you not have a meeting room called Count Arthur Strong? Eh? We've been diddled.

(16:40:46) @Mizzuks Maybe you should? It is brilliant (Had the League of Gentlemen on yesterday - utterly exquisite)

(16:41:08) @JuliaBall Cool! Late birthday present? ;)

(17:03:58) @katchooon Heehee! I'd love it to be more exotic than a commute to London from Luton airport and a limo like this.. :D http://t.co/bpHvVD2z

(17:06:13) @heatherrhian how's your voice doing? large things tend to be quite loud in my experience.. (except pylons)

(17:07:06) @Mizzuks iPlayer is good and fun for that sorta thing ;)

(17:08:07) @Tactless_Claire Standing clear. Behind a perspex sheet for maximum visual effect.

(17:33:56) Oh dear.. traffic southbound on the M1 from J9 is horrible down to J7.. not a good day to be out driving...

(17:57:49) @Dappydoris @miz_shake68 Y'can! ;)

(18:16:28) @mostlygeordie Guinness, duvet and sofa. I approve! Smile :)

(20:32:59) @mostlygeordie NIIIIIGHT! :)

(20:33:38) Right. Time to fill my bag with good things for the morning, and then escape to bed. Night night night night! DOUBLE ACT!

(07:38:25) @miz_shake68 @JQP74 Good morning, fine Twitter siblings :) Hope you've both got a Bank Holiday off!

(07:43:01) @kingfamily Good morning :)

(07:44:23) Join me and master @Yoda to help video-game maker @ea stand strong against dark forces of anti #gay hate http://t.co/KZrijxig

(07:45:27) Coffee's made. NUM.

(07:47:59) @mostlygeordie How d'ya like it?

(07:58:50) @mostlygeordie I'll find a frother specially ;) (and a nice big mug!)

(08:05:07) @PervyWilbury @_forky A happy Easter Monday to you both!

(08:06:23) @mostlygeordie Why the heck not? :D

(08:07:59) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar Morning :) It is a bit damp, isn't it!

(08:37:18) The sound of Lenni's glee is because there is a Doctor Who mod for Minecraft (http://t.co/X9QYL0eJ) - that's intense!

(08:38:07) Minor technical support issue... the children's ethernet switch stopped working. P2 :D

(09:16:35) @Lycan33 I say get rid of it. Or just the right hand side.

(09:18:07) Cuppa tea and a game of Harry Potter Uno (and just the one if Lenni loses :D)

(10:33:08) I have a question from my daughter: "Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of @TheMallLuton?"

(10:33:41) @mostlygeordie I'm not in a position to tell you what I've been doing (but Beth was in Asda at the time :D)

(10:34:10) @lloydbayley It's a learning experience, right..? :)

(11:17:10) @Tactless_Claire Like in your profile pic, then ;)

(11:17:35) @BlueMoon_11 Hold down the colour list and scroll right.. or do I mean left? Anyway, you have to scroll ;)

(11:20:01) @mugpi *chuckles* :D

(11:21:52) @PlainTalkingHR Heehee... with that and what appears to be coverage of the 1992 General Election appearing on Twitter, it's a retro-day! :D

(11:22:20) Why are people talking about the 1992 general election? I bet it's on telly or something...

(11:22:36) @vobes Ooh.. you've got a DSLR video camera? What ya got? :)

(11:25:34) @italisalute Oh no.. not again ;)

(12:45:39) @vobes Great quality, though - I very much enjoyed watching the NE video from Harriet's front room! :)

(12:46:12) @sarahjaneuk Ahhhh! I see :) I thought most general elections were in May.. bit of an oddity!

(12:47:37) @leica0000 Oh definitely. If there aren't any least ten 'badum-tish' moments in this house a day there's something definitely wrong! D

(12:48:12) @Tactless_Claire that mental* image made me chuckle :D

(13:50:37) @mostlygeordie I'm going up to the loft for a rummage/clearout shortly, too - meet you up there!

(13:53:37) @LutonNewsConnie New series on CBBC this afternoon (unless you've got an advance copy!) I hear there's a League Of Gentlemen reunion !

(13:54:12) @miz_shake68 Congratulations! :)

(14:06:59) @mostlygeordie Heehee :D I'm having a Good Sit Down before I head up the ladder :)

(14:08:04) @daisythom Are you expecting one?

(16:14:01) Oooooh #horriblehistories! I reckon CBBC will have record audiences :)

(16:41:54) @mostlygeordie I just have some box stacking to do and part one of Operation Loft Tidy is complete :)

(16:43:50) Right. #HorribleHistories is done (and was as excellent as always) - now to make something healthy to eat before attacking the loft again.

(16:45:19) @mostlygeordie Heehee! What were you putting up there?

(17:04:48) @jarbennett I like that. But one should still keep a look out, for fear of missing a chance for that place to do the finding!

(17:05:52) RT @BeeStrawbridge: When a bumblebee lifts her leg like this (sometimes 2 legs) she is asking you politely to back away... http://t.co/R ...

(17:07:25) @mostlygeordie It's about the same for me! Going to need to do some Freecycling soon.. always a bit of a chore :/

(17:09:41) This time of year, salad is almost entirely water #soggytomato

(17:23:44) @mostlygeordie It's more that Facebook bought it that I have a problem with ... (hmm.. that wasn't very good English - sorry!)

(17:24:46) @PontoonDock Hope you feel better soon, mate.. I'm feeling a bit peaky, too!

(17:25:51) So.. do I go to Hipstamatic for interesting photo shenanigans..? Oh dear.

(17:26:08) @Moominstrudel It's all gone a bit untidy, hasn't it? I'm pondering hipstamatic...

(17:27:42) Hmm... what to do, what to do..? http://t.co/f2iOJWu2

(17:28:30) @Dappydoris Ooh.. interesting! I'll take a look. If it works on Android, all the better! :)

(17:29:05) @claw0101 I like Instagram's social network.. but it's been ruined. Ruined, I tells ya. :D

(17:41:53) Going for CameraZoom FX and Picplz... nice to have an opportunity to review my photo tools :)

(17:47:11) @mostlygeordie http://t.co/yDTiVVEB ..?

(17:58:30) @claw0101 Indeedio.

(19:23:55) The newly edited 'tower of boxes' after this afternoon's clear out. Good to do some recycling... http://t.co/6ZnnWbj6

(19:25:22) @goitsagch So much to choose from! Thank you :) :)

(19:34:43) @streakmachine A difficult proposition.. unless one writes ones own, in which case there's not a great deal of serendipity.. :/

(19:41:47) @streakmachine I know that feeling.. it's so easy to have too much! :) :)

(19:42:08) @Dappydoris Unfortunately it's not, yet.. I love the concept! Might have to download it on my work phone :D

(19:43:07) Ironing time. Ooohyeah. Luxury ironing ooh yeah. Nope.. doesn't make it any more fun :D Might try it with TWO irons.

(19:43:25) @heatherrhian Bit harsh.

(19:44:45) @Tone_720 Just don't phone me up while I'm doing it.

(20:02:25) They call me Jimmy Three-irons (yeah, I know.. best I could do) /cc @riggwelter http://t.co/0X0WdrLN

(20:31:23) @riggwelter @goitsagch It's probably a good thing I didn't read your tweets while I had the iron(s) out. I find a challenge hard to resist;)

(21:08:17) @PlainTalkingHR You really shouldn't be - I am a very silly man ;)

(21:08:37) @poots A bridge? COOL! @riggwelter @goitsagch

(21:41:49) @Tactless_Claire I'm already late to bed, so night night to you too!

(07:16:51) @kingfamily Thank you :) A happy Easter to you and your family too! /cc @superalora @poots

(07:18:02) Good morning. I do believe I slept moderately well - marvellous :) Time for coffee, hoovering and Easter observances.

(07:28:40) @MyUIBarome Kudos for MyICS Ultimate fusion - c'est fantastique! :) Thank you for making it :)

(07:29:22) RT @claw0101: Want more @MissyMWAC? Check out Worlds Apart - Food & Fings http://t.co/LPY869H2 You have to put up with me too though. :)

(07:29:39) @claw0101 You, sir, are quite splendid :) @MissyMWAC

(07:29:52) @JQP74 And a wonderful day to you, too! Happy Easter :)

(07:34:18) @CymraesCoch I'd never heard that phrase before! Good morning, too :) x

(07:34:45) @vsopfables Nothing wrong with snuggling husbands! :D

(08:35:00) @CymraesCoch That's the one - I'll try to use it ;) Have a great day! X

(08:35:20) @Bubble2009 @GHOGIT @RobJD @poots @nxmee @superalora Amen to that! Joy and hugs to all :)

(08:35:44) @vsopfables @poots At least five hugs a day to keep healthy :)

(08:36:19) @leica0000 Oh definitely religious hoovering :D

(08:37:03) @AuntieJammy Happy Easter to you too! Hope it's an ovoid complete one!

(09:04:31) @AuntieJammy For sure :) Glad for the rain, too! x

(10:28:50) Easter candle service http://t.co/8i8TcYWO

(10:40:15) The panoramic photo mode on my phone has some rather odd side-effects when @nxmee gets involved.. http://t.co/uRLv8U3H

(10:42:37) @Davidlloydradio Did @DavidGArnold compose the @BBCNews theme? That will explain its epic wondrousness. Happy Easter, radio bloke!

(11:05:55) Dicussion on the way home from church: what does 16, 32 & 64 bit mean..? Cue surprise to hear we all still use a 7 bit system... old-school!

(11:07:53) @ultgames @arronclaydon @claw0101 @EwenRankin @AlexGFox @clothheadhq @sarahjaneuk @longball @betsyweber @AceHerbert @kyleswager You too! :)

(11:13:09) An Easter treat that maybe @MissyMWAC might like? http://t.co/Lmq4xtNf - all the major food groups... (although we're opting for sausages)

(11:14:20) @warriorgrrl Megaphones are an underappreciated member of the brass musical instrument family.

(11:29:31) @Tone_720 yummy indeed :) Happy Easter!

(11:35:36) @Davidlloydradio @davidgarnold @bbcnews Ahh... makes sense. Great bit of music, nonetheless! :)

(11:35:50) @AlexGFox And to you and yours - big hug for Mrs G Fox :)

(11:36:25) @mostlygeordie Thanks, lovely :) Happy Easter to you - hope there are LOTS of smiles in MillyMollyMandytown today! x

(11:52:39) Lenni and her tower of chocolate treats! http://t.co/KYC9PEkA

(11:55:09) @BaronHawkey She has a generous Nana & Grandad and uncle! :)

(11:55:50) @jonBCFC They'll be on special today ;)

(12:32:54) @BaronHawkey It's been a lovely weekend so far, thank you! Lenni turned nine yesterday - she's had a good one, too :) Hope you're chillin'!

(13:05:11) @kingfamily Boden'd out. Blimey ;) Enjoy!

(13:05:42) @jonBCFC Perfect :)

(13:27:32) @mostlygeordie Naughty Instagram! ~boooo!~

(13:29:08) @kingfamily Heehee :D I spend most of my time wishing I was wearing clothes ready for bed ;)

(13:37:01) @mostlygeordie That is really indiscreet :/ Can I test anything for you?

(15:00:13) @mostlygeordie I've been rather spoiled with a rather delicious Easter cake that @poots made & fed with brandy just after Christmas :D

(15:32:19) RT @DarienGS: These people (supposedly) broke into the Shard and took pictures. Unbelievable. http://t.co/Xm4IzN42

(15:37:58) @mostlygeordie Time to get your cookies out! #notaeuphemism

(18:42:53) Another visit up the hill to sort out fellow churchgoers' email woes... in doing so I set their clock to BST and uninstalled AVG :/

(18:43:55) @MissyMWAC Lovely! Bon appetit :) Happy Easter!

(18:56:49) Why are my eyelids so heavy again? Is this a mascara thing? I'm not even wearing mascara.

(19:34:09) Oh my goodness.. http://t.co/bN25Viwv

(19:35:18) @ajlanghorn Go you! Where are you sourcing that from..? Got a bit of cesium under the stairs? ;)

(19:35:43) @ajlanghorn (PS they simply didn't have the "adjust for daylight saving time" clicked.. NTP time does UTC anyway ;)

(19:35:57) @dt90spt @sarahjaneuk They'll do it.. just you wait and see!

(19:36:41) @canuckuk All the way to my ears.

(19:37:19) @timoncheese @canuckuk Did you see how they took it..? http://t.co/MGcsIqtB

(19:45:48) Thing I learned about today: http://t.co/scudgdGh

(19:51:18) @vobes Good stuff! Rest well, when you do :) Loved your NE from yesterday.. fantastic banter with Harriart! :)

(19:58:37) @canuckuk I'm glad I don't have to go up there to take the sights in for myself.. not so good with heights! :D @timoncheese

(19:59:51) Hmm. I never went for 'Layar'.. am I failing to encourage something cool and new, while jumping on the bandwagon of such as instagram? :/

(20:16:43) @ajlanghorn Heehee.. that's still pretty good! :D

(20:27:32) I'm going to attempt an early night.. race you there. Or.. well.. maybe not.

(20:44:11) Nice work, @SiDawson - @TwitCleaner is quite clever! (H/T to @TheDizzyMama for the link!)

(20:44:23) Bedtime. Definitely. Night!

(20:49:12) Good heavens.. cut down my list of applications that I've given access to my Twitter account from nearly 50 to 21. That's still quite a lot!

(20:49:35) Right. Off, before my eyes get too heavy! Night night to you.

(20:50:39) @Zararugosa @brennig Night, lovelies! x

(20:50:56) @canuckuk Definitely. And I lie, too (in the horizontal sense!)

(20:51:09) @miz_shake68 Night, Kate! x

(20:51:26) @PlainTalkingHR heehee.. you are queen of the early tweets! Sleep well x

(06:43:59) @smartie999 Cracking. I can see why you might say that. It is truly a confluence.

(06:45:17) @lloydbayley ohhhhhh! I thought you had a really lethal pot of coleslaw! ;)

(06:46:02) @ajlanghorn I do hope you're well enough for coffee - certainly the acid (or do I mean caffeine? :D) test...

(06:46:48) @JQP74 Good morning mister! Super it will be :)

(06:47:29) @EwenRankin Congratulations :)

(06:51:15) @stu4art Morning stu :) happy Saturday! Yeah.. Not bad, ta.. bit achey for the time of morning :D you? @lloydbayley

(06:51:21) @smartie999 :)

(06:52:24) Right. Time for some birthday celebrations for @superalora, who is nine today. Well, when she emerges from her pit, anyway. Good morning :)

(07:15:04) @linseyt Thank you! I'll pass it on :)

(07:15:37) @stu4art D'oh! :/

(07:15:59) @smartie999 Ohhhhh no. I am not really the preparing sort :D

(07:16:24) @gruppox Morning :) have a great day :)

(07:17:12) @tamarakuzminski I'll pass it on to @superalora, who's being spoiled this morning :D

(07:17:48) @caritas730 Thank you! Have a great day :) I'm sure @superalora will be spoiled rotten ;)

(07:18:39) @paul_steele Thanks, mate! Have a brilliant weekend :)

(07:23:21) @corrie_corfield I support your case against @Telegraph. Gave us opportunity to explain internet rights to Lenni "That's not fair" she said.

(07:24:19) @caritas730 ~chuckles~ Bring it! @superalora

(07:27:28) I did it again. One hand had the dead phone battery; the other had the charged spare. Sleight of hand & idiocy put the dead battery back in.

(07:49:19) @corrie_corfield The world of newspapers seems a murky one. This does nothing to prove otherwise... :/ @telegraph

(07:49:33) @miz_shake68 Morning lovely :) @JQP74

(09:59:52) @ajlanghorn Oh man. Hope you're feeling much better soon :)

(10:00:02) @PlainTalkingHR @poots Will do! Have a lovely day, too!

(10:00:09) @davenicholls Just. Like that.

(10:04:59) @davenicholls Foil?

(10:09:43) @davenicholls Swings and roundabouts. Or do I mean Abbott and Costello? (Russ and Elvis, obv)

(10:10:41) @AlexGFox Nope.. I understood none of that. C'mon, @claw0101 ... dictionary it up! :D

(10:11:13) Shame... but not unexpected: http://t.co/fDoB0yF4

(10:17:55) @lloydbayley Yup.. :/

(10:49:25) Purple tea and Harry Potter Uno #LenniBirthday http://t.co/N94abhWq

(12:05:31) @vobes @gilesbabbidge Good afternoon, both! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend and you're stretching your legs in this gorgeous weather!

(12:05:41) @thatsjustme0 Yes. No. Oh.. er.. maybe?

(12:05:57) @gilliandonovan @mariaguatella Audioboo or it didn't happen.. :D

(14:47:00) Home from swimming and utterly exhausted. The children are certainly fit! Time to do more phone tinkering.. it's stilll not ~quite~ right..

(14:59:10) @claw0101 Demented reality :D

(15:01:37) @fridgemagnet2 Check behind the traffic lights near the A27.

(15:17:40) RT @WstonesOxfordSt: We couldn't watch the boat race so we put some Cambridge dictionaries and Oxford University Press books in a sink a ...

(19:00:07) Home after a lovely afternoon with @RobJD, @Bubble2009, @GHOGIT, @Poots and @nxmee celebrating @superalora's birthday. Family tweetup! :D

(19:01:47) Now, though, I'm heading for the studio.. I have stopped playing with my phone - moderately happy with "MyICS Ultimate Fusion" for Galaxy S.

(19:24:13) @fridgemagnet2 Spot on! That's all I really need.. except maybe it should be a picture of 'Your Not Sibling' :D

(19:24:45) @thatsjustme0 You would not ~believe~ how up my feet are right now ;)

(20:44:02) @dt90spt Hopefully.. just seeing what emerges. May just be noodling :)

(22:24:07) @dt90spt I did make some musics in the end. Guitarry stuff.. just practicing, really. Have a good sleep when you get there!

(22:25:43) @kingfamily *hug* x

(22:26:03) Night night night night. Happy nearly Easter!

(08:37:00) Good morning. Caffeine imbued ready for Good Friday solemnities (mainly a walk of witness on Farley Hill) #goodfriday

(09:15:49) Outside the shops on Farley Hill singing Good Friday hymns (with @GavinShuker doing a reading) #GoodFriday http://t.co/tkHtO6Mb

(09:17:09) @lloydbayley and a Good Good Friday evening to you, sir!

(09:18:33) @sharonlangridge And a Happy Easter to you and yours, too!

(09:20:21) @JQP74 Mornin' John. It's Good with a capital G - so on balance, I hope it is, indeed, a good one for you, mate!

(09:20:55) @Tactless_Claire Amen to that :D Have a splendid day - enjoy the sunshine!

(09:21:32) @_forky @bagpusspostgate @lycan33 @xerxescfox @dappydoris @boigen And a Happy Easter to you fab folk too! #FF

(09:22:13) @CalamityMaclean @thenewbrunette I'm happily clunking along, ta :) :) Have a fab weekend!

(10:01:07) @PlainTalkingHR And to you! Enjoy the sunshine - it's amazing outside!

(13:56:15) Back from Wigmore Park, where it is traditional for one of the children to have a meltdown/injury. Now: Easter cards.

(13:56:56) In other highly trivial news, I have had my first keyboard failure in years. The P key stopped working during an email. With "p"s in it.

(14:01:12) @canuckuk That is the uestion (the 'Q' key stopped working as well)

(14:20:23) @PervyWilbury Your musics are GOOD.

(14:32:33) @PervyWilbury I love a bit of static eclecticity :) Me? I'm well, thank you; what more could I want than Hot Cross Buns & a good sit down ;)

(14:33:09) @canuckuk It's a delicate UI operation... UIOP-eration.. get it.. oh never mind :D

(14:35:32) @OmarRaza COMEDY MUSLIM! :)

(14:39:17) @PervyWilbury I have just had some fruit tea, but I may be tempted to have a Coffee Upgrade ;)

(16:46:55) @BaronHawkey @AirSprite27 @Forestinjersey @scyrene @StinaiLondon @Dappydoris @_forky @nick_hubert @chickenprincess Thanks, BH! :) #FF

(18:56:28) @GHOGIT Had a job to keep ctrl and not just shift it onto the floor..

(19:16:06) Catching up on 8.13pm Not-Live. All tired out now, although it's not actually Saturday...

(20:00:11) @smartie999 Nooooo. I have been busy pottering. Can't lay eggs when I'm pottering. Can you?

(20:02:27) @EmmaTofi It's like Christmas!

(20:03:39) @smartie999 @miz_shake68 I wish you realised how excellent your side is.

(20:04:44) @miz_shake68 @smartie999 Boy is 13 in August; girl is 9 tomorrow - but behaves like a teenager. Doomed.

(20:05:52) @mostlygeordie Is that an odd spelling of pizza?

(20:12:12) @smartie999 @miz_shake68 That's an offer I can't rephrase.

(20:12:48) @mostlygeordie Brap brap is it lookyouboyo!

(20:45:33) @miz_shake68 We should have a PARTY. @smartie999 can bring the pretzels. In her bag of fun x

(20:55:05) @smartie999 I will know when I have slighted you when my buns end up a bit singed ;) @miz_shake68

(20:56:20) @mostlygeordie I honestly have no idea what any of this means. Watching comedy instead. And playing with my phone :D

(21:00:18) A wonderful boo by @GrahamGudgin about Wardown @MuseumsLuton being saved: http://t.co/ze4KNVsP - support from a distance! Wonderful.

(05:08:07) Good morning. Listening to Ed Reardon's Week.. he's less grumpy than me at the moment... :D

(05:30:31) Last day of term yay :) Time to amble up the hill and ply my trade. Always good to do plying.

(05:48:16) @vsopfables To be honest, I'm not known for compliance ;) Good morning!

(05:49:08) @vobes Morning Mr V :) Listening to your NE - amazing to hear about your blizzardy journeys...

(05:51:06) @italisalute Morning, Alan :) The Easter break is almost within reach.. hope you have a good one, and the garden/earthworks are nice & damp!

(05:53:05) @MissyMWAC @claw0101 Too cute to eat..! If you blow into the tail, does it go PEEEEEP..? Like your Wiener Whistle :D

(05:54:39) @JQP74 Morning, mate.. nearly there.. ! Have a good Thursday :)

(05:55:27) @gruppox good morning :) And sorry!

(05:57:24) @claw0101 @MissyMWAC They do GOOD sweets (or candour, I believe it's called there) in America. Can't say the same for chocolate, though ;)

(05:58:47) @goitsagch Not wrong at all :) All the major food groups!

(06:00:28) @lloydbayley I didn't know you'd gone :D welcome back aboard noneverthelesser.

(06:01:23) @Zararugosa Bit not damp :D Morning!

(06:06:59) For what it's worth, I now get the exclusive Commuter Stretch Limo which stops almost outside my house. I share it with commuters. Luxury.

(06:12:08) I think the word 'executive' may well be meaningless. I'm going to put it in front of and after my job title. Looks good in my signature...

(06:12:48) @Lycan33 Morn' dude.

(06:13:27) @BitsyVonMuffin Oh yeah - there are seats and everything.

(06:14:34) @vsopfables Well strike me down with a charcoal briquette - happy birthday! You don't look a moment older :) :)

(06:21:38) @BitsyVonMuffin Toots. I mean, er, whatever ...

(06:22:23) @BaronHawkey You can be the Executive Baron... ;)

(06:23:09) @vsopfables I hope you get some fantastic presents :) Please show pictures!

(08:41:35) @Dappydoris Mornin'. I have no eggs... but it does feel a bit Eastery. Actually, it feels rather Christmassy. Which is odd.

(08:46:41) @Dappydoris I'll pass on the birthday wishes to @VsopFables, but I'll add a Bon Voyage and a Congratulations on passing your driving test!

(08:47:01) @Littlebit_Bod Not sure I like the sound of that.

(08:47:18) @njh I'm back to back meetings, but might be able to pop out at 2.30... :/

(08:47:32) @edtjones Yes. Oh I like that. Thems was the days! :D

(08:47:55) @BaronHawkey @BitsyVonMuffin I am hoping the weekend will be executive summery ;)

(08:53:40) @BitsyVonMuffin @BaronHawkey If you're offering ;)

(08:55:55) Here a death metal track, ready for a remix competition:

(08:56:09) @BitsyVonMuffin @BaronHawkey I AM MENDACIOUS.

(09:54:01) @mostlygeordie Executive yes :)

(10:22:38) @Dappydoris I was very busy not saying anything :)

(12:30:33) @streakmachine ~offers you a key~

(12:30:45) @boggits ~offers you a public key~

(12:30:56) @lloydbayley 500 - infernal server error!

(12:32:53) @BaronHawkey @mostlygeordie That's really cool :D I always wondered what a stills room was :D

(12:33:49) @lloydbayley I've always said.. never loopback ;)

(12:34:21) @streakmachine You are eaten by an angry zombie. GAME OVER

(12:36:03) @ms_howard That is within the Optimal Child Age Range. LOVELY :)

(12:36:47) @Moominstrudel Gosh.

(13:21:36) @streakmachine It was a crap adventure anyway ;)

(13:28:36) @njh I'm afraid I am.. just about to dive into another one with nary a moment to scoff lunch :/

(17:36:01) good heavens.. still working! At this time of day! going to the pub now. Only for one or two small snifters of ale or similar...

(17:37:21) I mean an Executive snifter.

(20:42:51) A mahoosive moon tonight.. waiting for the late coach home after a very entertaining team meeting. Easter weekend yay! http://t.co/ZeZROVnZ

(21:03:25) @thatsjustme0 And you, lovely! Xxx

(21:04:15) @BaronHawkey heading home from an ale-house-based team meeting :) Have a top quality weekend! Beers soon - for sure!

(21:04:48) @mostlygeordie executive beer evangelism is GOOD :) Happy weekend!

(21:53:05) @thenewbrunette @CalamityMaclean You two are wondrous x

(21:55:22) @smartie999 G'night! X

(21:56:05) @corrie_corfield There is a BIG moon, too.

(22:09:32) @corrie_corfield It's beaming rather brightly from the southern sky. Fullsome as you like, with nary a thought for the dark.

(22:13:47) @mostlygeordie Emoticon? Enterprise? Eeeeee reet canny lass? EasyJet? Egregious? Ectoplasm? Efficacious? Ephemeral? I'll NEVER guess it.. :D

(22:15:48) @mostlygeordie Yes! How could I forget that? :D Happy weekend, incidentally x

(22:16:54) I am going straight to bed without any supper. My kidneys have had quite enough to do as it is. Night night.

(22:18:43) @mostlygeordie Heehee! SLEEP, mainly :) And spend time with my fambily - Lenni's birthday this weekend (she'll be 9 :) Bedtime now.. night!x

(08:29:08) @BaronHawkey I hear there's something afoot at Swiss Cottage.

(08:38:24) @willowHart I had to move several rows back on the coach because it was a woman driver and she kept turning back to look at me. Poor love.

(08:38:36) @BaronHawkey Oh my :/

(08:51:14) @willowHart Oh it's SO embarrassing when that happens...

(15:11:03) Straight from a workshop to a conference call. Bigtime...

(15:12:46) @sparkyannc I'm going to avoid Chingford, I think. Looks a bit smoky :D

(15:13:24) Do I risk going to fill my pint glass with water while I'm on this conference call..? Yes. Yes I do.

(17:17:29) I've seen more people carrying petrol cans in the last week than I did in 2011... they're the bright new fashion in boutique pets, right?

(07:56:58) @BritishTechNews PS I surfed to http://t.co/dWWEVjGU and was surprised it hasn't redirected to http://t.co/cG1xBbTg ...in the pipeline?

(08:23:52) @vobes Morning mr v. Yeah.. plodding on, thank you - just about to have my heart appointment (hoping for good news :)

(08:26:27) @BritishTechNews reet grand (as they say In The North)

(08:26:57) @lloydbayley @vobes Hahaha! Fantastic - can't wait to hear it!

(09:32:34) @BitsyVonMuffin Thanks, Liz. I remain optimistic :) They have not threatened to remove any limbs at this stage (to aid circulation)

(09:34:39) @Dappydoris Merci bouquets Madame. I'm being seen. There is frantic writing going on (no great surprise that doctors scribble :D)

(09:35:47) They want to send me for a precautionary CT Angie-o-gram. I hope it's a nice one, like @kingfamily :D

(09:36:19) @BitsyVonMuffin Diddle iddle iddle um.

(10:13:17) @kingfamily Not really - they just want to be cautionary. Like a tale. Or tail? :) They expect it'll come up clear, though :) xx

(10:14:09) @Tactless_Claire This could be the new Glamping. Loft camping. Lomping (we invented it yeah!)

(10:15:59) @Dappydoris I think it said "This is a very silly man who needs a bit more poking about." ;D Still, I got a CT scan out of it ~pow-pa-pow!~

(10:17:10) @claw0101 I hear he's an up and coming star... (AND @MissyMWAC is on it, too!) What's not to like? :)

(10:18:54) Heading back to the Tower Of Power where I believe some Spreadsheets Of Doom await me. But I'll be back, hospital. Oh yes. Me. back. Soon.

(10:19:59) @Dappydoris I have that joy and magic to come... they did give me an ECG, mind you. I have stickers in the most opportune of locations.. :D

(10:21:11) @leica0000 Yarp. A morning's work to catch up on! :D Sounds like you're having a bit of a challenging onezz

(10:21:42) @Dappydoris It's a hurty job but someone's got to do it :D

(10:22:02) @BitsyVonMuffin Joy. Yes.. oh joy :D

(10:23:46) A sincere thank you to @poots for coming with me to orsbitol and holding my hand. And giving me the correct answers to the questions :D

(11:33:10) @AlexGFox Never heard of ya ;) @claw0101 @MissyMWAC

(12:31:08) @Dappydoris Oh my. :/

(12:31:39) @thatsjustme0 But... why?

(12:52:24) @thatsjustme0 Ahh.. hope it's not overly far. Or rainy!

(12:52:38) @smartie999 No. Not fixed. Well, probably. :D

(12:53:03) @Dappydoris That'll blessed-well learn 'em. I hope you gave them a stern talking-to, too.

(12:53:21) @truesilveruk Lurrvely :) My day? Fragmented. I have too much to do but not the brainpower to do it :/

(13:00:27) @smartie999 Normally it's just "turn me off and on again" :D

(13:02:25) @truesilveruk Y'know, you might just be right. Asda 'Extra Special' brand here, mind :D

(15:57:43) @smartie999 @Dappydoris I'm up for that...

(16:09:16) @smartie999 I was thinking more along the lines of spraying you with cooling water. @Dappydoris

(16:11:27) @vobes Welcome back :) How's Harriet's computer? :)

(17:15:23) Tired and stressed. That's not normal for me. But it appears to be happening more often... I think the Easter weekend will be very welcome.

(17:17:48) @emmathegardener ~hug with an after dinner mint aroma~ (loved your chocolate podcast!)

(17:18:38) @poots Indeed :) and it was lovely to have some Beth time earlier :) xxx

(17:23:11) @mostlygeordie In celebration of you I shall say your twitter name in a mostly geordie accent :D (It's pronounced "sizzujee" I think!)

(17:26:45) @TheIrishHorse :) :)

(17:29:06) @mostlygeordie Why aye! Taramasalata!

(17:32:06) @willowHart ouch. Poor you! #sympathetictweet

(17:34:54) @contrarywitch Very poetic :)

(17:35:28) @mostlygeordie Heehee :D just be glad you've got an accent.. my voice is just.. well.. southern :D

(18:47:20) @mostlygeordie Sorry.. didn't unnerstand a word of that ;)

(18:47:29) @AlexGFox I will do my best, Alex. Thank you :)

(18:48:49) @kingfamily Wow! Epic and healthy :) I was heartily fed on my arrival home - thanks to @Poots - with bonus Yorkshire Puds! :) x

(18:50:29) @mostlygeordie Take a look in your heart. That's where you are most beautiful.

(18:51:50) @drhappymac Hey, let's leave Radio Comedy on the radio. If it ain't broke.. (two words: Little. Britain)

(18:53:20) RT @instagram: Instagram for Android — Available Now. http://t.co/paDHsKAp

(18:54:15) @Barwickgreen Hurrah! :)

(18:56:10) @Tactless_Claire I read that as "frankly soulless" - but maybe that was my work day :D Hope you're back home now :)

(18:57:35) @mostlygeordie Indeed. I don't read the Daily Racist but even ~I~ heard about that. Beauty is all in the eyes, smile and chuckle for me :)

(18:58:36) @sarahjaneuk JAMYEH! :)

(18:59:17) @mostlygeordie You has ALL the good Englishes, innit.

(19:00:22) @GardenCity_Mark It's a niche that's not been covered. I'm not really in a position to comment.. Luton ain't got one & MK is borked!

(19:01:16) Dear Downcast, please make a version for Android. I will pay you FIVE POUNDS.

(19:02:35) @GardenCity_Mark Is it open again? It was a building site for quite a while.. I was thinking more the one out the front of the rail station.

(19:04:59) @drhappymac Arguably, Mitchell & Webb (although Numberwang is GENIUS) League of Gentlemen, Radio Active, Blue Jam, People Like Us.. :D

(19:05:13) @drhappymac Yes.. I wented here: http://t.co/YZaiUwzN

(19:07:50) @Tactless_Claire Can cats climb loft ladders? :D

(19:12:52) Was going to leave a comment about brands & access on @Matt's blog post about @Audioboo http://t.co/wlc4RYKH but lost the will to live.

(19:13:14) @drhappymac Heh. Touché :)

(19:15:48) @matt Bit sad about radio at the moment. I'll get over it.

(19:16:14) @Tactless_Claire Heh. YEAH! :)

(19:16:58) Right.. I'm going to have a shower and then contemplate horizontality. Actually, ironing THEN horizontality. Which is similar. BEYOND!

(19:19:06) @MissyMWAC Little and often. Ironically. x

(19:19:42) @dragonhistory You seriously have no idea #doesagangsign #owwwcramp

(19:22:15) @dragonhistory I'm home, warm just about to get naked and toddle around the house. If it's good enough for me at 4, it's good enough at 40.

(19:22:45) @heatherrhian Is it the one where you go to Wizard school? #harrietpotter #youaremagic

(07:00:23) Morning. Playing with "Downcast" - finally. Nice interface... just SO many podcasts to fine tune.

(07:06:12) @mostlygeordie Morning :) Did ya get up good and early..?

(07:06:33) @PlainTalkingHR @poots Good morning - a short week to boot!

(07:08:01) @BitsyVonMuffin Morning :) I'll keep it down ;)

(07:15:07) @crabbyknickers Funnily enough, I need to contact my boss, take library books back, and do dad stuff. I think it's a Monday thing :D

(07:24:08) @BaronHawkey Yeah... it's an alternative to iTunes for podcasts - the good bit is that it can download podcasts over wi-fi/3G :)

(07:24:15) @lloydbayley Evenin' LB :)

(07:25:08) @crabbyknickers Yes. Me too. This dressing gown is TOO comfortable. But I ought to get on.. stuff won't go in the loft on its own.. :D

(07:25:28) @mostlygeordie Funnily enough, I'm thinking of going back to bed. Trying to resist the lure :D

(07:25:44) @BaronHawkey Fabulous weekend, thank you! :) You?

(07:26:25) @BaronHawkey iPhone/iPod Touch only :)

(07:26:41) @lloydbayley Moderate to good, thanks.. just getting going. Need to tidy like a crazy fool.

(08:02:10) @lloydbayley Hope your Monday's gone well and that you're back in sync after the clock change!

(08:02:38) @BaronHawkey Yeah.. lots of folk I know speak very highly of it.. I've got loads of podcasts to sort, though :D Have a fantastic day!

(08:02:56) @crabbyknickers ~whispers~ Have you had your shower yet? I'm.. er.. just going now :D

(08:03:17) @lloydbayley Perfect! :)

(08:05:24) @mostlygeordie Gosh. I missed that memo :D

(08:05:40) @BaronHawkey It has a pretty huge library, yeah.. :)

(08:20:53) @Dappydoris Morning :) Ooh.. I shall take a listen :)

(08:21:15) @miz_shake68 @crabbyknickers Morning lovely :) I'm working from home later.. this morning I'm entertaining the children. Well, sort-of :D

(08:22:10) @poots Oh no! Want me to come and rescue you? /cc @BaronHawkey

(08:22:34) @mostlygeordie Heehee :D As are you!

(08:22:55) @BitsyVonMuffin A podcast is like a radio programme that you can download and listen to whenever you like :) @BaronHawkey

(08:24:14) @miz_shake68 @crabbyknickers HAHHAHAHAHAAHAH *dies*

(08:24:32) @canuckuk @BitsyVonMuffin @BaronHawkey It'll never catch on ;)

(08:28:52) That explains a lot.. the NPL MSF radio clock signal has been off for a week! http://t.co/kEcExwaF - don't trust your clock! /cc @poots

(08:29:59) @mostlygeordie Oh most definitely. I've just discovered a birthday present I bought for Beth is (probably) not faulty :D Gave me a boost!

(08:31:14) @Dappydoris We had a lovely weekend, thank you, and I think @poots had a good time :) Back to the week (albeit a short one!) You doing OK?

(08:31:50) @edtjones Fortunately those dear @BBC_GTS pips will be on time because they have their own atomic sauce (yum!) @BBCRadio4

(08:32:22) @mostlygeordie Yup. The clock (not the most romantic of gifts, but practical :D)

(08:32:54) Right. Time to get dressed in a celebratory fashion. As opposed to a celebrity fashion.

(08:34:35) @Dappydoris Careful with that twitchy nose.. who knows what you might magic up! :D I'm OK, ta.. some serious rummaging in the loft required!

(08:55:21) @edtjones The Leitch ones we use are wired to the wordclock, but the ones in offices may well drift a few seconds :D

(08:59:07) @JQP74 Morning John! I'm doing OK, thank you... just about to head for the loft for a bit of a clear out :D Have a great day too!

(09:01:09) RT @sonyxperiagb: Ever wanted to take a group shot & be in the picture at the same time? See how a Smart Watch lets you do this http://t ...

(09:01:22) @oliwia_s Good morning, Oliwia :) It's 5 degrees here, but sunny :)

(09:02:35) @pauldmorgan It's "Bring your kids to work" day..?! Bah.. that's frustrating.. I would've loved to have taken my little'uns to BH...

(14:24:10) @ajlanghorn It's Wednesday? #noidea

(15:01:41) @ajlanghorn Ahhhh I see :D

(15:05:14) @T_Northernbloke That's the one we've got (or a variety of the same). Very good for the money (the same sort is on Amazon for £41, mind)

(15:20:51) Since my laptop's been 'refreshed' to Windows 7, it's been running like a dawg and the HD light is permalit. Time for more memory, I think.

(15:24:29) @poots That is SO cool. Can I put make-up on her? Can I? Can I teach her to dance like a Goth? Can I? http://t.co/CLlWm5Nt

(15:25:19) @zany_zigzag A TV cuddle? I'd never heard of one of them! :D

(16:13:07) @ptomtom48 With a work laptop, there's not a lot of choice, unfortunately :D

(16:13:24) @zany_zigzag I like it. I shall have to start employing it in daily conversation :)

(17:04:28) @arronclaydon @MissyMWAC @streakmachine @claw0101 Yes. Yes Missy is.

(17:04:53) That'll do for work today.. if I do too much I won't have anything to do tomorrow. AHAHAHAHAHHAH etc.

(17:10:45) @AlexGFox @arronclaydon @MissyMWAC @streakmachine @claw0101 I often find myself referring to http://t.co/FQoRVr7a *cough cough* Often.

(17:11:35) I fired a mastic gun for the first time ever today. If that's the correct verb. Bit disappointed it didn't have a laser sight.

(18:17:36) @MissyMWAC @AlexGFox @arronclaydon @streakmachine @claw0101 I work on the principle that if I don't know what it means it's probably rude :D

(18:18:11) @arronclaydon @claw0101 @sarahjaneuk @MissyMWAC @streakmachine We normally blame @AlexGFox, but on this occasion... #blameKarl :D

(18:58:17) @Barwickgreen It was the beginning of last week. I'm getting the sense that it's spending a lot of time paging.. I'll keep an eye on it :)

(19:01:03) @MissyMWAC @AlexGFox @arronclaydon @streakmachine @claw0101 Like 'orifice', 'flange' or 'dirigible' The latter is often used for evil.

(19:02:06) Watching series 1 of Big Train. They don't make comedy like that any more. Not even in series 2...

(19:12:42) @poots @fiverscarrot @riggwelter Big trains.

(20:02:05) @nxmee Goodnight - sleep well!

(20:27:16) Beddingtime is here again. Once I've moved all the boxes off the lofthatch #halfajob

(07:11:05) @painted_duchess We have a rather depressing number of those. And CDs :D

(07:13:45) @painted_duchess Hahahaa! That's harder than it seems, isn't it? (not that we've done that, oh no :D)

(07:14:32) Good morning, and happy April Fools' Day. I have so far resisted indulging my mischievous side...

(07:15:00) @painted_duchess :D

(07:15:48) @brennig Not really on top form.. I'd say "fighting something off" :D Good morning to you, sir :)

(07:16:28) @painted_duchess Oh you certainly do... #PervyCouncil :D

(07:16:57) @miz_shake68 Bring it on! and please send photos of the fallout :D

(07:17:10) @brennig Funnily enough.. :D

(08:04:50) @mostlygeordie Thank you :) Just some noodling :) And good morning to you too! x

(08:05:08) @brennig *blushes* I truly wish I was.

(08:05:16) @miz_shake68 @JQP74 He's a cheeky one!

(08:05:57) @lloydbayley Mornin' Lloyd! Double beer show action.. I think you and Mr @Vobes were recording practically at the same time! :D I'm spoiled!

(08:06:24) @mostlygeordie Once? Shame on me!

(08:10:25) @mostlygeordie Shame on you! ;) x

(08:12:39) @mostlygeordie PS I wouldn't want to.. you're too lovely. Also you might get REALLY cross :D

(08:13:53) @painted_duchess Always happy to take that opportunity if I'm given one!

(08:14:15) @brennig I was just about to get the water cannon out #notaeuphemism

(08:14:45) @emmathegardener I think it is.. (actually, it's even longer ago for me!) Oceania, perhaps? Tanzanianiania?

(08:53:07) @mostlygeordie That only serves to make me like you more :) Me? I'm definitely a soft Southerner ;) #pushover

(08:53:46) @lloydbayley I'll look forward to listening. Or listen forward to looking :D

(10:11:56) @brennig They are good thoughts - thoughts of cranking up the music!

(11:11:47) Avoiding Twitter since I'm catching up with #BTCC - so much anticipation on this first race of the season.. all 2 litre NGTC turbos woo!

(12:15:44) @jo_whit That sounds fab :)

(12:16:30) @fridgemagnet2 That good, was it? #recyclingcentre

(12:16:45) @brennig "Sorry I missed your call - I was hoovering" ;)

(12:36:19) @MrsGumpy CASSETTE! :D

(12:37:05) @mostlygeordie Lovely day for it! :)

(13:32:26) @Tone_720 Nice to see how neat they are underneath - to keep 'em tidy, I guess :)

(13:33:16) @ms_howard Heh :D

(16:07:03) @mostlygeordie Please don't try to vacuum outside :D

(16:15:44) Last of the #BTCC races.. Hoping @TeamESRacing actually gets both cars to the finish line this time! A good first day of the season so far:)

(16:22:22) RT @jfraseruk: Everything you think about this Government is captured in this picture: http://t.co/5D79UHCS

(16:23:40) Wasn't expecting that. All went a bit wonky - I wonder if the cars that came off will get another go..? #BTCC

(16:26:32) @DunlopBTCC Will the cars that came off be able to go on the grid if they're still running? #BTCC

(16:33:52) @mostlygeordie There are worse ways to have fun than hoovering :) Crank the music up... (but don't miss any calls like Mr @brennig did :D)

(16:36:09) Druid destruction #BTCC (seeing as it's trending!) It'll be interesting how the rest of the race goes, once they've removed the borked cars.

(17:05:56) I have no idea what KX is, but I fancy a glass of that now. Nice work, Plato #BTCC

(17:08:37) Well done @newshamracing - podium finish for @TeamESRacing. #BTCC

(17:09:58) @smartie999 Yes! Chin chin :) It's the driving around of cars - something of a new enthusiasm of mine (to watch, anyway!) :D Zoooooooom!

(17:11:35) @caritas730 Seems to work! @TeamESRacing

(17:55:06) @caritas730 I was most impressed that it was colour co-ordinated :D Can't wait till the next raceday in a couple of weeks :)

(17:56:01) @PlainTalkingHR @smartie999 There was plenty of both today!

(18:28:31) Just popped by some fellow congregants to help them go from dial-up to broadband. Bonus 1GB memory upgrade.. their XP box only had 512MB :/

(18:56:08) @caritas730 Oh I would ~love~ to... I have yet to go to my first BTCC race day.. hoping to go with @RobJD, given the chance :) Thank you!

(18:57:13) Don't heave loam without it.

(18:59:12) RT @awhisper: Shedden, who finished fourth, has been excluded from the race results as his car was not running at the time the red flag ...

(19:00:12) @PontoonDock That is SO cool! :) :)

(19:01:35) @mostlygeordie It's all the rage. In fact, I might put mine on in sympathy.

(19:17:39) @mostlygeordie In jammiecahoots :D

(19:51:13) @kingfamily I'm sure it's on YouTube :) I remember "Music and movement" :D We did that in the mid-70s too #springchicken

(19:55:32) @brennig Oooooh! What's the mic? #getmygeekon

(20:12:49) @brennig Mmm... lovely and crisp! :) :) I have a very limited selection of microphones.. saving up for a Neumann U87 (I think!)

(20:16:24) @brennig Maybe it's a phantom power thing? Sometimes mixers don't deivery enough; I don't know whether this ribbon mic needs a separate PSU?

(20:22:29) Listening to @Ruskin147's boo about his PC 'under attack' http://t.co/0WFG22k5 - I hope he says "I'm the BBC's technology correspondent" :D

(20:25:44) @crabbyknickers You are the BEST! :) *sighs*

(20:39:46) Time for some @ESCInsight catch-up. My shiny new nephew is being Christened on Eurovision Final day. Good choice (hope we're home in time!)

(20:55:46) @kingfamily and good night to you xxx

(21:13:16) Yes, @ewan. I ended up playing the Epic Sax Game. http://t.co/Yqff0PTy (came in at number 22, and didn't do the 10 hour YouTube thing :D)

(21:26:23) @neilfarrimond Not so much 'steampunk' as 'bogstandard' ;)

(21:28:48) Somewhat sadly, I'm uninstalling "Draw Something" because it will vacuum up my WHOLE LIFE.

(21:29:36) @ruskin147 Thanks for the follow. Might see you in New BH sometime (when you arrive!)

(21:31:20) I am also uninstalling Draw Something because they've shilled out to Zynga. Although I kinda knew that was going to happen ~nods sagely~

(21:35:13) Going through the rest of my Android apps.. ones I never use include "DigitalSpace" and "Layar" (factory installed).. never did AugReal.

(21:36:02) @mostlygeordie I have 17 games of Words With Friends going (I think that used to be Scrabulous :D) Just too much for my busy life #eeeee!

(21:36:51) @claremac82 WHY WERE YOU WORKING AT THE WEEKEND MISSUS? Don't make me come over there. This is all completely mental. :/

(21:46:55) RT @rhodri: Finally getting the hang of Draw Something. http://t.co/NLGDWrLB

(21:48:11) @mostlygeordie Night, you :) Sleep well!

(21:48:31) @ajlanghorn Heh.. I would LOVE a game, but it's all gone a bit Farmville :D

(22:04:55) @claremac82 YAY for short weeks.. and another 4-dayer the next week. It's been a good'un, thank you :) Hope yours was.. well.. tolerable! x

(22:09:16) Right.. off to bed with me, shortly. Last bit of tidying to do. Last LOT of tidying.

(07:39:30) Happy birthday to my beloved @poots :)

(07:46:29) @JQP74 Thanks, mate - and a very good morning to you, too!

(07:47:08) @miz_shake68 Oh most definitely! Mornin' ;) x

(07:47:45) @vsopfables Thank you :) Good morning!

(07:48:24) @handlebarnose Careful now!

(07:49:19) @hadenmaiden That must be ~such~ a relief!

(07:50:54) @vsopfables I shall endeavour to remember! :) :) I may well make a "Twitter birthdays" Google calendar to remind me ;) x

(07:52:00) @106jack I read that as the "hyperactive brunch" but it's Chris, not Steve presenting it, so it can't be :D

(07:53:02) @miz_shake68 I feel for @indecisive96 - I was diagnosed with that a few years ago.. I hope it goes away again soon x

(07:53:26) @hadenmaiden Computer says yes ;)

(07:54:41) @handlebarnose Sounds v. sensible :) The only viable alternative is a curly straw, but that is only for professionals :D

(08:49:29) @miz_shake68 I am sure @indecisive96 is quite pleased about that :D

(08:51:48) Apparently the first of tomorrow's @DunlopBTCC races will be held in a queue outside the Esso petrol station near Brands hatch. #BTCC

(09:14:13) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar @BronwenPTHR And a good morning to you :) x

(10:06:22) @AlexGFox Thanks, mate. @poots is worthy of everything I say about her :)

(10:06:54) @RobJD Two kids on a treadmill ;) @poots

(10:07:39) @TheaTweets Wasn't me! :) Maybe Twitter pinged it away. It has a (bad) habit of doing that :/

(10:09:05) @RobJD :D

(10:09:30) @RobJD (To be honest, I can't wait to install it. And then have a powercut :D) @poots

(13:18:23) @goitsagch Weird! Where is that? I shall endeavour to avoid it :D

(13:23:41) @vobes Thanks for the namecheck on yesterday's/Thursday's NE!

(13:24:53) @painted_duchess :D

(15:24:05) @Rebs_41 good heavens... I'd be all over the place after two bottles of wine! In fact after one large glass :D

(15:26:05) Just been to see Pirates (Adventure with Scientists) - brilliant film.. SO many subtleties :)

(15:38:56) @smartie999 That's so lovely :) x

(15:39:59) @Rebs_41 Cheers! *raises a mug of tea* :D

(15:43:10) Go @TeamESRacing! That cheeky @newshamracing has got pole position at the first #BTCC race in the Esso Petrol station queue tomorrow.

(15:55:09) Heehee.. google maps in 8 bit.. http://t.co/JsXUxFiK (h/t @skattyadz)

(16:47:58) @smartie999 most definitely - there is cake and extended family :) :) want some? (cake not extended family)

(16:48:39) @goitsagch What a waste, eh?

(16:50:05) @painted_duchess I ought to keep an eye out! Must get sorted with the karaoke thing :) x

(19:10:36) @daisythom WELL glowy!

(19:26:13) @Purple_Sand Bless you. Retrospectively, and, indeed, quite possibly in the future. And now.

(19:26:52) @willowHart Outside, definitely. But inside it's toasty :)

(19:35:27) @mostlygeordie I second that intention. Although I might just go down to my studio and sit in the dark for a bit :) x

(19:40:22) Derp.. how ignorant! I had no idea that Pirates! in an adventure with scientists was originally a book (http://t.co/2fQzjis8) by gideondefoe

(19:41:15) @Matildamouse You and @willowHart both..? Time to get your duvets and the sofa and a nice glass of something warming! :)

(19:48:57) @mostlygeordie Not a pretty sight, I can tell you! Now put that telescope down :D

(20:01:18) @Matildamouse @willowHart Cheers *raises glass of water* (that's fairly poor, isn't it!) :D

(20:02:21) @mostlygeordie Heh.. of course! I promise to resist doing 'entertaining' dancing (surely that's what Bruce Springsteen was singing about!)

(20:03:14) @fiverscarrot I'm sure it had them, too :D

(20:17:33) @Tone_720 Me too :)
