(08:51:14) Always a good start to the day..

(09:06:46) @stevenaybour *ends process* Arghhhh! :D

(09:07:19) @CarolKettley @justmeandluke @PRESTIGEWIGS @cancerreliefuk @RealBlokes @disco2man @ParanormalEvent @platinummind Gawd bless ya m'lady! #FF

(09:25:06) @missmayawolff Good morning, you lovely :)

(09:47:46) @SheleileighLaw @pearcen And hello to the colonies ;)

(10:32:05) This Tweet Will Make You Think Twice About Capitalising Every Word In A Sentence.

(10:32:57) @gugucachoo I use pretty much the lot.. I find Dropbox is the most versatile, but you only get 2GB.. OneDrive is 7GB.

(10:33:08) @CherryKaz1 *sighs* How frustratinging :D

(10:33:31) @demsoc Hahaha! *applies for job at Buzzfeed*

(10:56:48) @gugucachoo You can indeed - however, almost everyone I know already has Dropbox :D I think it's 0.5GB per person.

(10:57:19) @johndredge Absolutely cracking - and in your inimitable style :D

(10:57:44) @CherryKaz1 Strawberries?

(10:59:02) The last @JohnDredge "Nothing To Do With Anything" show is simply dripping with hilarity. Surface wipes are available

(11:26:35) RT @bookhive: Ok let's retweet this. @CocaCola get the hell out of Norwich. Nobody loves you here. Nobody. R

(11:27:06) @gugucachoo :)

(11:50:10) @SheleileighLaw @pearcen Oh definitely funky Friday! :)

(11:51:20) @gugucachoo That is a very kind offer. I think should work :)

(12:26:21) @gill_eddy Phew. I hate to see people I like fighting.

(12:26:46) @gill_eddy That's "I hate to see people I like, fighting." Not "I hate to see people. I like fighting."

(13:54:15) @Dreamy_lyrics It is Pizza Friday, after all! :)

(14:20:58) @kingdredge I need to get out more.

(14:36:42) @KingDredge that's.. whelming. :D Have a great weekend, and thank you for making amusing videos :)

(15:44:12) @emmafurious And yet a new chapter in your life. I hope all can be well.

(15:44:27) @Tactless_Blonde Non-shoulders, then ;)

(16:13:46) @Chocohalix @ellewadding And this is why I love Twitter #everydayisaschoolday

(19:12:05) I guess, because pre-gig music should not really be better than the performance itself, that would explain why it's generally so annoying.

(19:13:49) @brennig Arcade Fire yeah :)

(20:00:28) Just enjoyed a wonderful set by @chainsunchained - fantastic harmonies and a really great rapport with the crowd.

(20:04:21) @CherryKaz1 recorded.. I'll upload when I get home/wifi :D

(10:20:08) @perrygascoine Safe trip! :) @sm2n @davewitchalls

(12:04:04) @Doctoe Tuned in. You're looking great! (Even though you're sitting on a cat) :D

(16:32:36) @batwench Congratulations :)

(16:34:21) @Canojar Love the shade of blue/purple!

(21:59:29) Inspired by @allybrno, I saw this BT radio tower as we were driving past and felt compelled to stop…

(22:25:02) @neilcochrane1 It's a disused radio mast in Kelvedon Hatch - and apparently the highest point in Essex #trivia

(22:25:50) @ellewadding @AllyBrno Apparently it is tall enough to have line-of-sight to the BT Tower in London... sadly out of service now.

(22:26:19) @PlainTalkingHR @AllyBrno Thank you! #seizetheday #cargotabitmuddy :D x

(22:44:02) @PlainTalkingHR It was lovely - thank you :) That was at Kelvedon; I gave the children a brief tour of Essex :D Hope all's well with you! x

(07:07:09) @slandi Thanks, Stefano! I'll enjoy it when I'm back at base :) @sm2n

(16:58:54) Games from our childhood #OriginalMemory

(18:24:30) @KermitMash You are totally in my Twitter demographic :) My bio is nearly me (And would very much like to visit your theatre club one day!)

(18:29:37) @poots Very clever (and almost impossible to read out loud :D)

(18:40:16) @slandi That really is quite a compelling toy :D @sm2n

(08:22:06) Good morning from a rather damp seaside. It doesn't matter, though, because it's good to get away. Or indeed (my childhood) home.

(08:24:41) @fridgemagnet2 You may have spotted we're down in Sussex - don't want to derail your bank holiday, so just saying hi from here really :D

(08:27:22) @BitsyVonMuffin That sounds like a good way to start a bank holiday Monday :)

(08:28:28) @debsylee Hello lovely cheery Debs x

(08:29:56) @KermitMash I dream of getting weird emails from you: D

(08:59:44) @fridgemagnet2 Cheers - just heard my phone beep too. Might give you a shout this evening once the young'uns are settled..?

(09:05:29) Rather enjoying the long-awaited return of @Brennig's @ThisRealityPod as the soundtrack to a leisurely bank holiday

(09:06:28) @CherryKaz1 Morning :) Absolutely - nothing more than we'd expect, eh? x

(13:50:16) We saw this in a charity shop and couldn't work out what exactly it was for... #weirdesteggcupever

(14:33:03) I have the most erudite twitterpals: @boggits, @regularjen, @mssres, @koshkajay @hergiebird, @Stenbird and @miche sure know their salt pigs!

(14:34:13) @fandrews It would make the perfect damp teabag receptacle, wouldn't it! I've also been informed it is for holding salt. I love Twitter!

(14:41:16) @KermitMash ~blushes~ did I tweet that out loud..? :D

(17:02:51) @kathyclugston Please will you autograph it for me. #excited

(18:33:59) @KermitMash Well, I hope to get to know you better(!)

(15:23:37) @DavidLloydRADIO I wonder if they are as poor quality as the ones you could get for 50p at the market #mostlyhiss #allicouldafford #sakura

(15:36:53) @DavidLloydRADIO I can't remember where I read/heard it but the first advice I ever got was to avoid C120s - they were liable to stretch!

(15:37:43) @PaulLomax That is mild. If Shakespeare were alive today he would be able to describe Governor perfectly :) @guardiannews

(21:52:31) We played a game of 'Monarchy' this evening - a great way to learn the names of kings and queens!

(22:39:06) @CherryKaz1 I'd not heard of it before - quite a simple but tactical card game.. just what I like! Enjoy your wine! x

(08:14:34) In retrospect, perhaps I shouldn't have proposed with "For the sake of argument, why don't we get married?" #joke #whatwouldcheggerstweet

(08:17:49) I've always preferred the older woman, which is why I've just downloaded an online carbon dating app. #whatwouldcheggerstweet 

(08:18:59) @paulwheatley Hahaha! Oops! :D

(08:20:29) @DigitalAmoeba It's the work of satan. No other explanation as to how they fitted all that processing power into such a small space works..!

(08:25:12) Am I the only person who habitually presses 'Just once' on my Android tablet? Am I scared of commitment or do I prefer a sense of occasion?

(08:28:49) @DarrenGriffin :D Glad it's not just me!

(08:48:13) @76Wilbury Heehee! A kindred spirit :) I'm still in my jammies, belaying the housework for as long as practicable :D How about you?

(08:48:54) @DigitalAmoeba It's a very impressive feat of engineering!

(09:28:41) @ellewadding But it avoids the hassle of having to... :D Have a great (long) weekend!

(09:29:13) @sharonlangridge You and me both! Have a splendid long weekend :)

(09:30:09) @DigitalAmoeba @wpcentral #Mac #PC #Yahoo #SurfacePro3 Checking it out :) I thought David Pogue was an Apple fanboy..?

(10:15:47) @sm2n @sonicnick @iZotopeInc Ooh.. not heard it yet.. will check it out :)

(11:14:14) @tobypinder I'm reaching the stage where I'm pondering a full factory reset of my Nexus 7.. no small task :D

(11:56:21) I've said it before and I'll say it again: I hate déjà-vu.

(11:56:40) @IPTechShark These are good noises.

(12:32:47) @IanLPhotography :D

(13:38:31) Today was computer tidy-up day. It's a bit tragic, maybe, but I like to have all green on my Nagios dasboard. Not Al Green. That'd be odd.

(13:53:56) @CherryKaz1 I'm afraid so... it's how I relax(!)

(13:56:07) RT @CuteEmergency: This shirt makes me laugh so hard.

(13:57:13) @CherryKaz1 I need to get some exercise... I shall see what happens after I've had a shower and got dressed(!)

(14:03:02) @davenicholls Haha! You've just reminded me! I've only got one Pi on the dashboard at the moment; yours would be a very useful interloper ;)

(14:13:08) @davenicholls The mind boggles :D

(19:24:53) @CarolKettley @platinummind Big shout out to you, too! :)

(19:32:20) @CarolKettley Thank you :) Fresh on this week ;) Thanks for the follow, @platinummind!

(07:18:53) @mostlygeordie Now that is bad form.

(07:22:19) This tiny pair of trousers keeps making it into (and through) the washing. I honestly have no idea…

(10:49:15) @GHOGIT :D

(10:49:32) @edtjones I never opt for anything less than a boil wash ;)

(10:50:17) @CarolKettley I asked my daughter and she doesn't know to whom they belong - a smartly dressed cat, perhaps?

(10:50:32) @batwench That'll learn me (but it gets the stains out ;)

(10:50:46) @DarrenGriffin :D They can do their OWN washing from now on :D

(11:18:23) The Friday before a bank holiday shouldn't be this busy.

(11:45:13) @CherryKaz1 I'm slacking on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. If by slacking you mean occupying the children for half-term :D

(12:26:01) @CherryKaz1 Oh we'll have fun and shenanigans, for sure. I'm a terribly irresponsible Dad :D

(12:56:23) @CarolKettley Meeeeow ;)

(13:39:10) @CherryKaz1 If I bring 'em home in one piece, it'll be a victory! :D

(19:21:10) @paulums And I offer the same toast to you and yours! Happy long weekend!

(21:12:16) On occasion, poots and I find the tesco website more helpful than Google.

(09:11:48) @helenduffett Nice! :)

(09:15:58) Good morning. I've caught up. It's "Bring your voting card to work" day today. For me, anyway.

(09:59:22) @topgold That's very impressive! :)

(09:59:43) @CherryKaz1 Morning lovely :) x

(10:21:08) @topgold I was pondering the artistic merits of competent sample arrangements while making coffee. Definitely skilled - but an artist..?

(10:26:09) I really loved the interval song "12" during this year's #EurovisionSongContest2014 - written by @riccowichmann & @Pharfar1 :) (h/t @jn2n!)

(10:27:22) Amusing comedy: #EurovisionSongContest2014

(11:11:47) @akbea You wouldn't catch any of my followers sharing that on Twitter! :D

(11:13:25) @mostlygeordie Magpies are more of a problem for us... Tiny birds are better #tweet

(13:21:27) @mostlygeordie That's an elegant comparison :)

(13:21:50) @topgold Quite so - certainly not one that will fit in a tweet (or, indeed, even a boo[m]!)

(13:30:19) Someone needs to invent a non-conductive umbrella. Actually, it's really not worth bothering. Quality thunderstorm action outside.

(13:30:38) @Scriblit @corrie_corfield Wish I still had a red lanyard :D

(13:55:08) @CarolKettley Heehee.. I'm sure @Faulko1 will be getting some bashes and crashes soon enough!

(13:55:20) @CherryKaz1 Maybe it'll get more tumultuous as you head south! :)

(15:05:21) @impymcwimpy I have had most of this year's Eurovision entries going round my head. This is not good...

(15:05:55) @Feexby *does a bit of indistinct singing like Oleta Adams*

(18:29:39) I'm off out of the house to exercise. Exercise my democratic right, that is! BOOM! ~drops the mic~ ~trips over cable tangled between feet~

(18:33:07) @poots You and me both. I can't even trust a party if they've got a candidate called Dave. It might end up causing re-runs of Top Gear.

(10:03:01) @VeryBritishView *chuckles* You're really getting into this :D

(10:16:13) @Feexby Tiny tiny little Tuesdays. Horrible.

(10:16:18) RT @Feexby: I know ordinary Tues are 24 hours long, but minitues?

(10:16:26) @clairerandall @CherryKaz1 Morning :)

(10:16:36) @VeryBritishView :D

(10:16:54) @VeryBritishView I wish I could be there!

(10:47:47) @LaceyHughes I really appreciate those honest, candid audioboos you are recording - heartbreaking. I hope they can sort you out soon.

(11:44:44) @LilacNun At this time of day..? Celebrating? Commiserating? Something else?

(12:04:32) I am now watching the Party Election Broadcasts for the EU elections. I am none the wiser. And none the more foolish.

(14:03:23) @RobJD And a happy half birthday to you! :)

(14:32:11) @RobJD Hope your day's going well, bro :)

(15:37:12) @IPTechShark My expectations are often dashed... I have modified them. And had a bit of a moan :D

(17:01:39) @RobJD I may well be getting to go home in a mo.. and I only had one conference call today - sorted in a record 5 minutes :D Cheers!

(17:02:14) @IPTechShark I'll get them to do it next time :) Shall we start a campaign? The "Clean my blimmin' car, please'" campaign..

(09:23:01) Morning. Tuesday. That's Tuesday morning. Lordy. I'm going to wish you a lovely day, and then I'm going to hide. From Tuesday.

(09:26:35) @Dreamy_lyrics At least with Monday we've got an excuse ;) Morning!

(09:27:42) @paulums There will be stumbling...

(09:29:25) @MariaBoedeker @76Wilbury *coughs* Helical :) But beautiful!

(09:30:28) @claw0101 It was good timing - I had a moment & spare bit of real estate on my laptop screen - I tweeted as I watched :) Really enjoyed it!

(09:30:56) @Richard_C Fantastic :) I still have mine, too :)

(09:58:04) @SheleileighLaw Literally just finished drinking mine before I had the chance to photograph it. @paulums - bit close to the table edge..?

(09:58:52) @clairerandall Morning, Claire. I have long been a member of the Abolish Tuesdays campaign (Whizzer & Chips comic, 1978) :D

(09:59:01) @CarolKettley Morning, Carol. Coffee..?

(10:02:15) @CarolKettley @skitty007 Haha :)

(11:42:09) @76Wilbury I'm moderate/good (for a Tuesday) ta! I've been enjoying some gallivanting of late. It's good for my health! :) How about you? xx

(11:43:14) @PontoonDock @poots @catmacdonald Hiya. I'll ask around... I know a few folk fairly nearby, but it's all about their availability :)

(11:44:04) Pro photographer in #StAlbans needed by @epilepsyaction - Fri 23 May for a 1 hr photo shoot. Please email with rates.

(11:44:52) @LutonOnSunday I have a creme egg left from Easter that I think I'm going to eat. Because it's a Tuesday. I was never any good at Tuesdays..

(11:50:36) @76Wilbury Huzzah :) *raises a glass* (poor show.. only water)

(12:59:08) @manytypesoftea I tolerate you with every beat of my spleen.

(12:59:30) @emtgates Makes for a crap rainbow...

(14:22:39) @VeryBritishView Haha! :D Science!

(15:28:25) @thenewbrunette

(16:33:54) How come it took me so long to find the little option on Facebook that says "I don't want to see posts from The Daily Mail" ..?

(16:58:55) @clairerandall If someone posts an article from the Daily Mail, there's a little button you can click at the top right of the picture..

(16:59:20) @DeanOrmond I think I've got away lucky so far #notmanypeopleIhangaboutwithreadthedailymail ;)

(16:59:33) @CherryKaz1 Heh... I'll send 'em on ;) :P

(18:35:04) @CherryKaz1 I can assure you you're not x

(19:29:55) Quite enjoyed the music at @Asda this evening. PARTY ON, SHOPPERS.

(19:36:03) @the_335 What a very silly man. There will need to be some wet fish slappage.

(19:36:49) @CherryKaz1 It is perfectly legitimate to hotstep up the biscuit aisle. @asda

(19:37:43) @the_335 Large wet shark.

(19:39:06) @the_335 Y'know, I think you've got it there.

(20:23:33) @goitsagch That actually gives rise to more questions than I have space for one just a single tweet... :D @asda

(20:24:35) @CherryKaz1 I'm going to have to careful what I do with my pack of jammy dodgers, then..! @asda

(20:24:51) @GHOGIT They play some interesting music.. often in stereo across the shop :D

(20:47:09) @PontoonDock I'm fairly sure it does... we have it on our internet radio, but haven't listened for while... Yup!

(20:48:02) @LizzyWelshCake I'm struggling to work out what that is..!

(20:49:03) I'm still not quite sure what @fridgemagnet2 has got me roped into...

(21:40:25) @SheleileighLaw LOVE. IT.

(21:40:39) @fridgemagnet2 WOO bloody OOF.

(21:41:48) @LizzyWelshCake @JuliaBall I am entirely going to kick myself, aren't I :)

(21:42:25) @LizzyWelshCake I have a feeling you're going to need to put me out of my misery :D

(21:42:56) @LizzyWelshCake You know my goldfish memory.. I always love to hear about your gigs! You will be ACE :) x

(21:43:35) @CarolKettley It is baffling. It's a radio advert :D @fridgemagnet2

(21:45:57) @LizzyWelshCake AHHHHH! *delicate kicks self*

(21:49:16) @LizzyWelshCake They will love you, I'm sure! :)

(21:49:32) @JuliaBall @LizzyWelshCake I was told. There was kickage ;)

(21:49:48) @CarolKettley Exactly :D @fridgemagnet2

(21:51:26) @JuliaBall @LizzyWelshCake Mild shin pain. I can take it :D

(21:52:08) Right, well, having recorded the most puzzling thing I have ever (possibly) had put into the public domain, I shall go to bed. G'night you!

(21:53:56) @fridgemagnet2 I've sent you a couple of emails. Hopefully they're OK - I'm not entirely sure I'm capable of better. Or, indeed, different!

(21:55:14) @LizzyWelshCake A little satisfaction can mean a lot :) Bring it on!

(21:55:30) @CarolKettley Night, ma'am! :)

(21:56:47) @LizzyWelshCake Nos da, cariad! x

(10:10:20) @stu4art Morning Stuart! :) Indeed it does..! :D

(10:13:30) @Tesco I would refer you to the excellent @RealCarrotFacts for #VegHeroes knowledge.

(10:53:59) I have no idea who to vote for on Thursday. I have a lot of ideas of who NOT to vote for. That doesn't help much, does it..?

(10:54:47) @Barwickgreen Is @Richard_C one of them..? I do miss you guys.

(10:54:57) @Dreamy_lyrics YES!

(11:01:16) @PrincessBagel The stickers..?! NOOOO! (they never go on again). I used to dismantle it.. never worked properly after that :D #RubiksCube

(11:21:55) @PrincessBagel Heh. I got a bit wiser and managed to learn how to do two layers.. still can't do the third... :D

(11:22:09) @GShang It may end up being a spoiled ballot! :D

(11:23:32) @GShang It is indeed. And I don't think I do...

(11:44:41) @GShang I would say, on reflection, probably not. :D

(11:45:01) @tobypinder It's a sad state of affairs when it works out that way! :D

(11:45:32) @CalmWaters73 Dare I ask who you represent? If it's the Shang or, indeed, Mint FM party, then you have my vote ;) @GShang

(11:47:54) @mostlygeordie COOOOOOL!

(13:10:57) @CherryKaz1 I for one would vote for you. Where do I sign up for the Kaz fan club? Or should I say party? :D @CalmWaters73 @GShang

(13:11:17) @CherryKaz1 And with you running the UK and @CalmWaters73 running Europe, how could things not be frankly splendid? @GShang

(13:11:56) @fridgemagnet2 Go and live somewhere where they don't sell local honey.

(13:12:57) @ms_howard @Barwickgreen @Richard_C Heh...

(13:15:33) @brennig I'm sure a quick call to Foundation Media (+1 (562) 948-3008) would sort that out... maybe a little short notice, though...

(13:15:57) @edenGD02 @GShang @CalmWaters73 @CherryKaz1 Amen brother.

(13:18:48) @CherryKaz1 @CalmWaters73 @GShang Do I get a badge and special member privileges? First dibs on the ice cream in the parlour etc? ;)

(13:21:47) Thinking of moving to Iceland. Making a bed in the freezer section near the lasagne.

(13:24:39) @CherryKaz1 I'd rather feast in your parlour. That wasn't supposed to sound so filthy.

(13:25:00) @Richard_C Please tell me you still proffer a pipe.

(13:28:08) @CherryKaz1 YUM! x

(13:49:17) @CalmWaters73 You're not starting to sound like a megalomaniac or anything... ;) @CherryKaz1 @GShang

(13:58:43) @CalmWaters73 And that is how empires are built ;) @CherryKaz1 @GShang #PowerToThePeople #PowerToThePerson ;)

(14:06:48) @slandi I won't get scurvy! BONUS! :) Hope it's warmed up where you are.. back on the scooter yet? Missing your boo(m)s!

(14:12:37) @slandi Ahh.. keeps you in beer and cigarettes, though, eh? (Or should I say spare parts for your electronics collection ;))

(14:12:59) @PrincessBagel Bring in the cows #bitharsh #buteffective @BBCNews

(14:34:00) @fridgemagnet2 There is a fridge in the kitchen that I am fairly sure I could fit in. The temptation has so far been resisted. So far.

(15:14:28) @mostlygeordie hahaha! I'd better keep an eye on the skies :D What prompted you to invest on one? Starting your own delivery company? :D

(15:35:32) @tobypinder True. I think establishing a personal rapport with one's representative can help in that respect.

(16:09:36) @emmathegardener Maybe once (I did as a kid :D)

(16:26:30) @emmathegardener It hurts. Tingly-y.

(16:36:35) @emmathegardener So I don't recommend it :) My tongue is aching just thinking about it :D

(17:43:36) @contrarywitch I worry there'll be nothing left than a spoiled ballot :D

(18:01:19) @contrarywitch Sounds like he has got his wires crossed - and is wasting his time and money (but hopefully not much of yours)...

(18:08:05) @claw0101 That's really lovely! Really captures the friendly atmosphere and colourful trains :)

(20:10:06) @contrarywitch My fingers are well and truly crossed too, while also touching wood. And doing something unspeakable to a black cat(!)

(21:12:29) Nothing to report. Well, nothing of any consequence. Pondering tactical sleep... while it's cooled down a bit! Oh, and good evening.

(21:21:02) @SheleileighLaw Now that looks just the ticket! :) And a very good evening to you!

(09:45:39) @missdianemorgan That would cause me to look at him a little askew.

(10:55:52) Good morning. What remains of it. Blue skies in Watford... that's as far as I've got.

(10:56:26) @tweeting_frog Bon appetit!

(11:14:02) @CarolKettley Hurrah! :) :)

(11:14:45) @LizzyCrone Ohh lovely! :)

(13:02:05) @jopijedd (There are loads of other games there, too.. but Labyrinth was always my favourite. Never could get past the psycho biscuits)

(13:02:29) @edtjones Yup... I am going to have to wait until I get home to play this, otherwise my productivity will hit rock bottom :D

(13:23:00) @LizzyCrone I think we've all learned something this afternoon. Thames Water should put that on a poster :D

(15:58:40) Buzzing from some delicious @AMTCoffeeLtd coffee - the staff at the Watford Junction stand make the best coffee this side of London :)

(15:59:43) I am, however, left baffled by a conversation with @sm2n about Beats by Dr Dre being bought by Apple. I'm not sure what exactly it is...(!)

(16:09:24) @neilcochrane1 I imagine that's because they've all gone home :D #nodetention

(16:09:50) Interesting @Engadget piece on the HTC phone that offered Beats technology:

(16:53:30) @kimhillyard Just annoying they only count as one of your five (or seven) a day. What sort did you have? Pink ladies are the best :)

(18:36:33) @imule Ah.. so Apple have bought a pair of headphones. That's not like them.. I've just read this engadget article..

(18:37:24) @imule I think Apple like their bass :D

(15:43:14) @poots Thank you, my love. Looks like the usual rush hour nonsense but I'll keep an eye on it over the next hour or so. Eep, indeed. x

(15:54:39) @poots That's disappointing at best. *sigh* I hope they manage to sweep it up soon...

(15:59:38) @SarahMillican75 I think you're funny and that's all that matters. Actually, you seem like a nice person as well. Fine by me. @RadioTimes

(15:59:57) @Stenbird That poor juncture. It will never know what is going on.

(16:00:18) @MissyMWAC That's a fine philosphy, ma'am.

(16:30:58) @Dreamy_lyrics I am perplexed much of the time. Thank you for the boo, by the way - just found it! I don't have the app, so no notification.

(16:41:29) @canuckuk Please say hello back. If you're not too busy.

(16:51:48) @thatsjustme0 Gosh :) Wish I had time for that :) x

(21:51:39) @IPTechShark I would record it for posterity. And, indeed, lols.

(21:52:38) My options are: go into politics or go to bed. Good night.
