(06:51:12) Morning. It's the last day of August. The last day of caffeine for me this month.. down to half a cup of coffee in the morning (nearly!)

(09:49:59) Quite pleased to have got out on my bike this morning.. only 3 miles, but got the old blood going. And got some gardening gloves. Stage 2...

(13:29:27) Stopping doing gardening for a bit. Brambles, sunburn and wornoutness probably won't do me any good.

(14:12:19) Apple™ and Blackberry™ #technogardening http://t.co/PWVGAZzLcq

(14:36:35) Top tip: once you've finished using secateurs or garden shears, give them a spray with WD40 and a quick rub down... makes them smell great.

(22:19:06) Right. That'll do for August. September, then. I wonder what's inside... night night!

(14:03:57) Home and all warm and hot after a few days under the cover of trees. I'm definitely a squirrel or something. Time for a ginger nut.

(17:37:23) MT @sm2n "Da ist eine Spinne im Haus / Stahlbürste Darling http://t.co/GL4t7qbvNg " This is an absolutely cracking tune/animation. Love it.

(17:41:54) I just found myself looking into the medicine cabinet rubbing my hands & thinking "now what shall I have?" (I've got an itchy bramble bite)

(22:30:35) Time for bed. Night night to you.

(08:39:56) Time for a bit of housework - I shall listen to my new @Bowen707 CDs. It seems right & appropriate. SO good to see her play live on Friday!

(10:49:05) Yay! Time for a bit of #drivingabout #BTCC

(15:32:35) Random flea market reel-to-reel tape (£3) investigation. So far: Delilah, mainly. http://t.co/JEZT0yGtkm

(20:52:34) There is SO much subtle, hilarious humour in "A Touch of Cloth". And some very silly humour.

(21:56:29) Sitar player at Brighton Pavilion - with rain and baby seagulls http://t.co/aVJrw4on8Q via @audioboo

(22:23:28) Right.. I think that's everything uploaded.. time for bed. Night night to you.

(20:38:09) Home after a lovely, if damp day out in Brighton. Took photos. Recorded audio. Got wet. Apart from that it was pretty cool.

(08:08:08) Treating myself to the audio landscapes/mix of @grahamdunning on http://t.co/QYIzuMiqKr (Fri 8-10am) as a completely different wake-up call.

(12:19:40) Suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria and people are up in arms about an actor playing a fantasy character? I'm not sure I understand..

(16:43:20) RT @SueAtkins: RT @WomensRadio: Share Your Voice with the WORLD by Becoming a Radio Host at WomensRadio! Watch our #Video to Start http://t…

(16:56:04) Gosh.. this is mawkish but compelling.. the M4 live before a bank holiday weekend.. http://t.co/BeRQwuF8R7 (h/t @fandrews @JonathanHaynes)

(17:03:05) Not sure I meant mawkish. More... gruesome?

(17:55:26) A voyage into the unknown. London. Again. (Which is weird)

(19:18:36) Quite excited about seeing @Bowen707 this evening. I'm quite close to the front, so there may be polyester instgram action.

(20:59:46) Heading home after being thoroughly entertained at a reasonable volume by @Bowen707... love her to… http://t.co/SapFOpvoDv

(22:04:00) Added to this evening's amusement: being asked for directions on my walk to the gig. Driving directions to the north circ. In SE London(!)

(22:05:26) Hot. Sweaty. Rammed. Horrible. #Thameslink #Thamestink

(05:39:38) Good morning. If a little.. damp. Today has been planned until about 9.30am. And that's the way I like it #noagenda #until4pm

(10:16:26) I found Catrin Glyndwr (http://t.co/ZsIWg3y4JP) #cgeo #geocaching

(10:55:19) A monumentally long way down @ The Top Of The Monument http://t.co/zHsS4l4Vit

(12:24:49) I'm not a musical fascist but (yeah, I know) I just witnessed the worst aamplifiedbusker I've had the misfortune to endure. Audio to follow.

(12:29:48) I like it when I see people wearing clothes branded "SuperDry" when it's persisting it down with rain #easilyamused

(13:26:55) Mandatory cockerel photo #tourist http://t.co/QmtRPzi3sc

(20:27:20) Sounds from the South Bank http://t.co/zXkq6J2IpU via @audioboo

(22:40:10) Right.. off to be the closest I'll ever get to a degree in education. Night night to you, especially.

(07:04:54) 10 year old daughter came downstairs in her favourite dressing gown... On the label: "Age 3-4" http://t.co/Iu3n5xGKo4

(07:18:12) "@morriconespiano @LAWNMOWERDETH http://t.co/3nNWTdFfo5 Great cover of @kimwilde 's song, and apparently her favourite cover version of it."

(07:59:14) Note to self: If I'm asked for my dream dinner party guests, @JonRonson would have to be on the list. He doesn't look like he eats too much.

(18:41:51) Hello! @LateNightLoaf is live at 10pm UK (5pm Eastern) on http://t.co/d9KyhPKtLN for a 'pilot' before its return on 3rd Sept. BEE! THEIR! x

(21:02:09) Late Night Loaf takes to the air imminently.. as soon as I know what's stopping it from making any noise.. hold onto your hockey sticks!

(21:13:03) There is natter going on during the show http://t.co/BpJUWnRBLL - please help yourself to a pamphlete

(23:11:54) An enjoyable couple of hours of trying out a couple of things on the Late Night Loaf.. thank you for allowing me to share my love of music.

(08:12:46) Morning. Again (sort of).

(09:07:00) Happy birthday, @EwenRankin http://t.co/KPqUd6HvZX (h/t @bothersbar)

(13:53:08) My thoughts go out to @KyleSwager and his family and everyone in the Philippines suffering from the floods.

(14:28:45) :D

(17:59:56) Aeroplane take-off over Memorial Park @ Luton Hoo Memorial Park http://t.co/nJETl4Puo9

(22:03:24) It's amazing what you can say/shout/sing into a microphone. God bless modern recording technology. And on that note, I'm off to bed. Nighty!

(06:50:34) Autocorrect clearly prefers Mormons to mornings.

(07:31:46) The travellers return... a little weary, I think after an overnight coach trip. http://t.co/tlU3BgzJup

(17:18:47) I don't think I have ever experienced next door neighbours who bang as much as ours do. They must like hitting things with other things.

(20:37:46) Early start for li'l ol' me tomorrow, so I'm saving all the apostrophes I can. Night night to y'all.

(17:36:49) RT @gugucachoo: This is probably my favourite @thekillers song. Why don't they release it as a single? #YoGabbaGabba http://t.co/CHlSz4WI2S

(21:52:27) Right.. better get to bed. House (re)invasion tomorrow. Can't really call them rug rats any more. Night night!

(06:41:25) A very happy birthday (if my calculations are correct) to Mr @paulums on this auspicious day.

(06:45:36) It's reached the stage where I have said the word "right" twelve times in the last thirty seconds. Better get on, really. Have a fab Friday.

(07:52:36) In the doctor's waiting room suffering the anodyne Heart 'breakfast show'. Half-hearted at best. And nowhere near as cheeky as @106jack.

(07:54:32) Gosh. A popular day for birthdays - Happy birthday, @RadioKate (and @SpaceKate!)

(07:55:17) RT @106jack: @syzygy Half-hearted vs half-arsed.

(12:16:50) OK. I think I know what a 'ship name' is. And who 'Larry' is. Otherwise, I am baffled by the behaviour of people. And Twitter. #pluscachange

(17:42:57) Hoam. Time to get burgered.

(18:53:53) I have spent the last ten minutes trying to instagram the face I make when Alan Carr is on telly. But it's just too horrific. As is my face.

(20:25:44) Oh my. Green Wing was genius... Watching Series 1 episode 1 on 4oD - they don't make 'em like that any more.

(21:24:35) custard and laughing.

(21:38:42) Looking at decent replacement motherboards for my studio PC. Conclusion: there aren't any. #outofdate #socket775 #quadcoreforheavenssake

(20:37:03) What is wrong with adverts these days? I am sure the premises on which they are based are at best spurious. I shouldn't watch telly, really.

(06:47:15) The end of one journey and the beginning of another. Hard to describe how I feel. Oh yes. "Not very well." Good morning to you.

(06:52:27) (That's to say I'm all done being on call, and the children are going to Switzerland).

(12:21:36) #FF @SheleileighLaw Fankoo!

(13:35:46) What is the maximum acceptable refresh rate for something that calls itself a 'webcam'? I think once an hour is a bit poor... so: 5 minutes?

(14:48:53) It's deceptively warm. Be careful out there.

(12:45:26) Hot @LateNightLoaf news: The show is going on a two week break - no show today or next week. Back and brazen on the 20th. BE SQUARE! :)

(15:28:16) Just when I thought we had run out of internet.. @bassdogs (via @dansumption - good luck at the wedding)

(18:48:19) Just you wait until I launch my online customised greetings card company Moonpigeon dot com

(19:00:48) I don't often do on-line renewal things, but I have to say it's generally a lot less painful than it ever used to be. User experience WIN.

(19:34:29) Well, @poots can certainly identify a technical inadequacy; to play music in my studio I have to boot a PC. "Haven't you got a CD player?":D

(10:39:10) Came home to find a BNP leaflet on our doormat. I got as far as the quote from the Daily Mail. It's now confetti.

(12:22:13) Microsoft's barcode. So obscure that Google Goggles can only recognise it's a Microsoft Barcode. Decode it? Nope.. http://t.co/ZD9a3FNeVM

(12:25:17) A meaningle: a single particle of something with meaning. There's meaning in all things. Everything, therefore, is meaningles. #Philoscopy

(16:09:42) Ooh drivey drivey... looking forward to the last #BTCC race of the day. @NewshamRacing is in pole... but can he hold it for all 12 laps?

(18:20:31) The next Doctor is John McCrirrick. #DoctorWho

(18:27:27) And Twitter lights up with Malcolm Tucker quotes. #doctorwho 

(19:54:37) Tin foil pal and the pedal bin.

(22:31:25) I'd better get to bed. A quite bonkers week by all accounts, and it's amazing how quickly 11.30pm comes by. Nightity bye!

(06:41:57) Good morning and ting. Friday AND August. At the same time.

(07:38:26) I'm very much in favour of the next Doctor being Peter Capaldi. Just think of the mashups... #DoctorWho

(09:29:57) When I top up my @ThreeUK PAYG, I get 150MB of free internets. I have generally used half of it by the time they text me to let me know ;D
