(09:03:04) Did I good morning yet? Morning :)

(09:11:56) Inspired by @artistsmakers I'm totally going to try and grow sunflowers on the green space opposite our house again this year.

(17:14:01) RT @MaxTundra: Campaign and be gagged. March and be kettled. Browse and be blocked. What a scary country Britain is becoming. #gagginglaw

(19:15:49) All the way home I was trying to subdue thoughts of organising an extremely unpleasant campaign against everyone who works for OFSTED.

(19:15:56) And I'm not even a teacher.

(23:16:45) RT @djbensims: My studio was robbed at the weekend, if you live in London and are offered any of this equipment pls contact,thx! RT http://…

(08:32:48) Good morning. And what better way to start the day than at the dentists' getting drilled and filled? Expect dribbly speech...

(13:17:22) Numbness level: 4.

(15:18:53) Facing a major professional dilemma. I fear I may have to say no @Weekendery this Friday due to work commitments. ~sighs~

(16:58:38) Busy afternoon.. trying to find a gap to make myself an Emergency Coffee. Someone came over with a mug of proper coffee. Top miracle action.

(22:51:53) Off to bed. Before 11. Wednesday will be better. Certainly less drilling. Night night!

(09:34:23) Good morning. I'm in stealth mode. If you see me, it's clearly not working.

(18:02:24) Back from the dentists. Someone is going to need to take a pair of pliers to me. This is not going to end well. Tomorrow, though: filling.

(18:27:43) When I'm next asked to supply my mother's maiden name when signing up for a bank account is there anything stopping me saying Gingerspice?

(18:27:58) Apart from it not being true, of course...

(18:44:51) On hold. Smooth jazz. Fourth circle.

(09:12:34) I've only just recalled that, on my way home from work on Friday, I heard that horrible noise of one car driving into the back of another.

(09:26:07) Today: not playing Asphalt 8. It makes my time go away. There are more noble pursuits for a Sunday morning. Archery. Jousting. Regression.

(11:55:02) Happy birthday, @hedgemint!

(11:55:28) A belated Happy Birthday to @slandi - hope it was a good one, and not too cold! :)

(11:58:34) Feeling moderately compis mentis today. Or do I mean compost mentoes? Trying to motivate myself for a swim later...

(14:10:45) What is it about home electrical wiring that consistently baffles me? Either more wires than I'm expecting or not enough. Or both.

(19:25:39) Crazy busy swimming pool today... must be the Splash! effect. Or the rain. Which amounts to the same thing, some might say...

(20:41:53) A watched download never, er, downloads. Well it does. Just slowlier.

(22:53:26) I'm unable to resist.. a swift bowl of frosted flavoured flakes before bed. Have mercy on me.

(23:04:19) Went for Special K stuff in the end. Got to be able to fit into that exclusive active wear this summer.. http://t.co/QUC2wYsirS

(09:49:49) Hola! Holla! Holllaa! usw. Last night's @Weekendery radio show is available for download and podcast.. http://t.co/nyl4QW1RrS BAFFLING!

(09:51:18) Here's an EXCLUSIVE interview from last night's @Weekendery with comedy legend & penguin @JohnDredge - https://t.co/FdtGgn2F49 - more soon!

(16:47:12) RT @govindajeggy: The word 'repetitive' is only slightly repetitive. It should be more repetitititititititive

(16:49:43) Putting up lights. Not uplights. Lights. Up. Putting lights up. Should have written that before, really.

(16:55:53) Better finish the job I started. If I can remember what it was. #howmanyhalfajobsmakeajob

(22:34:45) Alan Hawkshaw did the Countdown theme? Cool.

(01:13:42) Wow.. an epic (late!) evening of playlist crafting. Tomorrow's @Weekendery show is to be a cavalcade of stuff that is Quite Lovely. Night!

(08:02:47) RT @johndredge: Daft double act King Dredge present their Facebook page. Nah den...https://t.co/WoF0sNesWP

(08:30:14) RT @TlfTravelAlerts: Friday. You wake, covered in concrete. An industrial pouring machine is parked erratically outside your house. Oh no..…

(13:09:55) I got a text message from HMPO. That's a bit modern. At least it means they got my passport application...

(13:11:05) Am I alone in preferring, when bringing a shop-bought coffee back to the office, to pour it into a mug? Which is rarely big enough, mind...

(18:30:04) Deliciously home. Time to set up the studio for some @Weekendery action at 9pm...

(18:40:00) The @Weekendery is happening at http://t.co/AHs6DdUHaY at 9pm tonight (4pm US Eastern) - why not tune in now and enjoy some 80s music? :)

(22:31:56) Playing "Future Love Paradise" by Seal. The @Weekendery. Where the music is a pallet cleanser. Fork lift drivers have never been happier.

(23:03:17) Another fantastically enjoyable @Weekendery draws to a close. You can subscribe to it as a podcast / in iTunes.. http://t.co/frVQeygsBq

(00:40:04) RT @LaceyHughes: @syzygy Here is what I was working on yesterday. When You Say Nothing At All cover. http://t.co/85BAfseEcx

(10:15:08) Good morning. Slight headache today... tempted to take a small coffee to remedy it. In other news: damp again. Like a squib on the motorway.

(10:16:58) Also: watched the end of Sherlock s2e03 again last night (The Reichenbach Fall) - I can understand why folk were disappointed with series 3.

(14:06:51) RT @Tesco: To be fair, that item you put in the bagging area *was* quite hard to identify.

(17:58:09) Offski. Not with skis on.

(21:41:13) Gosh, House of Fools is ridiculous. This is why @johndredge should be on telly. He's merely preposterous.

(22:08:41) Now having a go at Uncle. I wonder how much shouting there is in it. Nick Helm is quite shouty.

(09:52:51) Good morning. Took the precaution of putting extra layers on today. The extra t-shirt works well, but not sure about the gloss paint.

(15:27:50) Rising bollards *shudders*

(20:43:51) Getting my wirecutters out again. Brap.

(12:11:32) After midday already? No time for a 'good morning', then. I blame whoever caused the crash on the M1 spur earlier. Now: pre-lunch banana.

(19:20:11) Doing internet telly for the first time in a while. My hair is dreadful.

(20:50:10) Ooh I have got a PROPER treat for this week's @Weekendery. Really looking forward to playing it in.

(09:38:59) Right... that's May sorted. Need to put some thought into March now. #workingbackwardsfromChristmas

(09:43:25) Hotel booking failure.. flight arrives at 19:10; hotel reception is only open until 19:00. I discover this when they send the confirmation.

(13:44:19) Got a caffeine buzz and a light to put up.

(14:18:57) Outside light installed in just 30 mins using the patented method: 10 mins installation, 20 mins looking in the dirt for the screw I dropped

(14:58:07) Sending my poor faulty wearefocusrite pre-amp to the audio doctors. http://t.co/ZumxopAskm

(15:45:22) Packed up my pre-amp and ordered a MyHermes drop-off; saving that until Monday because shops don't like to store other people's stuff...

(20:11:43) No @Weekendery show this evening, I'm afraid, due to work commitments. Back next week with TWICE AS MANY songs. Playing at once. YEAH.

(23:25:27) I injured my right phone typing thumb preparing a salad earlier. What a fantastic way to remind me to eat healthily. Ow.

(10:05:19) Morning. Had CHVRCHES - Mother We Share stuck in my head until I put some weird music on to drive to work. Otherwise.. it's Wednesday. Yerp.

(20:17:48) Watching House Of Fools. Vic and Bob. It's actually quite amusing in classic idiotic sitcom style. With Matt Berry being Matt Berry. Hilar.

(23:32:04) Right. Busy couple of days ahead, so what better way to prepare than to be a bit late to bed. Night night neverthelessons! :)

(10:46:21) Morning. There is coffee necessity. Otherwise, I have no idea what today will bring.

(11:13:39) There needs to be a word for that moment, 5 mins before leaving for school, when offspring recall something essential they've lost/forgotten

(11:16:59) I have now remembered that I do exactly the same. Just before I leave the house there's hurried trouser-pocket checking for errant car keys.

(11:38:50) RT @paulwheatley: @syzygy Phnackaplanting (F-nak-a-planting)

(07:42:20) Good morrownings. Enjoying reading about other interpretations of Sherlock Holmes, including a silent movie series that Conan Doyle enjoyed.

(07:49:48) If you don't follow the remarkable @artistsmakers you are missing one of the most industrious and inspiring people: http://t.co/5Q80G6U2v3

(22:01:24) Back from the gym. Ran a bit. Rowed a bit. Very little flailing. Worked off about two and a quarter doughnuts. That's tomorrow sorted, then.

(23:06:04) Off to bed. Facing Tuesday with a sleepy head. It's the best way. Night night!

(13:00:37) G'morning. Or afternoon. Not sure I've booted up properly. Going to go into Safe Mode and uninstall some drivers. Randomly.

(16:25:42) There's a blimmin' drizzard out there. Yik. Managed to get my 1km of rubbish swimming done, though. Which means it's hot chocolate time.

(18:01:49) Why can't all kitchen equipment be made of the same material as grill pans?

(19:16:44) RT @Misty_Lee: This still gets me. Every time. http://t.co/eReuVQHZpd

(00:23:04) Finally got round to sending @WeAreFocusrite a service enquiry about my VoiceMaster Pro. It is doing my head in. Resorting to Behringer :/

(00:28:54) OK. I'd not heard of @EmAtak, but apparently she's @KateRobbins' daughter and - according to Wikipedia - comes from Luton. Who knew? Gosh.

(00:29:57) Right. It's now far too late, and although this tweet will take me one beyond the rather pretty '75,777' I need my bed. Good night to you.
