(09:29:10) Morning. Best thing I did last week: turn off that "offline/online" thing that mapped drives do in Windows 7. Instantaneous data YEAH.

(10:26:22) Happy birthday to @corrie_corfield who is frankly best at everything.

(10:53:30) I'm not sure there are many towns like Luton that vary from being in the South East, Midlands, East Anglia and - indeed - ''Greater London"!

(10:55:28) It's also #EdBalls day. Happy that.

(13:05:04) Having some strange soul-searching about why I feel the way I do about Michael Gove. Feels wrong to wish suffering on him. Probably is.

(19:52:55) Thank you to @paulwheatley, @verso & @DigitalAmoeba for an entertaining, interesting @BritishTech Pocket show recording :) It'll be up soon!

(06:52:06) Morning. Fairly early start, so breaking out the big guns: Montenegro's Eurovision entries for 2012 & 2013 to perk me up. This year's? Nope.

(06:55:23) The dubstep wobble of last year's @Eurovision has been somewhat subsumed by whistling in the 2014 line-up. Hmm.

(13:26:26) Now I have the UK #Eurovision entry stuck in my head. I have decided this doesn't make it a good song.

(20:33:22) Home from a lovely trip down south to see @chepbourne, @tuid, @Mr_DW_Brighton and littlest nephew & niece. Thank you for your hospitality!

(15:19:25) Housework dealt with (I've put the hoover away... for now, at least). Time to sit down and try not to fall asleep. Stupid Computer Games..?

(17:37:04) I can't hug any cat.

(14:36:02) RT @DeeSelected: Nothing like a good bath! My starlings are having fun in the rain today. #cambridgeshire @Natures_Voice http://t.co/zdXXFB…

(20:58:10) Oh wow.. just watched #Elementary series 2 episode 19... absolutely exquisite. The big prom dress bit is just splendid.

(21:05:38) Britain's got talent: Talented people come here with talent. Either in the past or now. That's the cool thing about the UK - Global Village.

(21:40:47) We're playing a game of "is that the voice of Clive Merrison or Alex MacQueen?" To be honest I'm losing, although they are very similar.

(22:46:06) End of a peculiuliar day; time to sleep. Who knew white wine and tiger nuts could give me heartburn.. too much of a good thing! Night :)

(08:08:07) RT @roadpoliceBCH: Air ambo lands on M1. Luton. http://t.co/Z2qcwAkBHa

(08:08:59) Good morning. A narrow escape - #M1 northbound is closed at #Luton J10.. I was heading south and it is not nice at all. Best avoided #travel

(11:06:03) Taking a screen break, I am fairly sure I saw a woodpecker in the trees behind the office. It scuttered away before I could take a picture..

(18:16:12) Here's a preview of this week's @weekendery: https://t.co/5UE1kOjN42 - it's got all sorts of things in it. 9pm tonight.. Mint FM. BLING! :)

(20:07:11) Live on air on http://t.co/tbdP4Vk6S1 - it's The @Weekendery - you'll never hear a show like it. And that's in a good way. Most probably..

(20:38:05) It's a covers special of "My Genre-ation".. the answer is "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Elbow Pads" - but what's the question?

(12:40:48) Places I would quite like to visit: Kaliningrad Oblast, Nakhchivan and The Vatican. Oh, and Plovdiv. Great name.

(12:54:17) And one day I hope to go over The Bridge bridge between Malmo and Copenhagen.

(16:47:50) That second coffee may not have been wise.

(17:52:47) Welsh Royal Mail van approaching Luton (not in Wales) on St George's day... http://t.co/fbQYzfYchs

(21:21:49) Tomorrow's @Weekendery is going to be a fantastic musical journey.. with some excellent entertainment thrown in for good measure. EXCITED!

(16:04:44) An enjoyable afternoon out doing a bit of geocache maintenance (and hunting...) lots of wonderful birdsong and ... er... football cheering.

(08:07:36) What a fab idea - like @Sweden except in Hertfordshire. MT @HitchinUK: Happy Easter everyone! It's my last day of looking after @HitchinUK..

(08:13:07) A very happy and glorious Easter to you - though the skies may be grey, spring is definitely here - the season of new life has begun :)

(08:18:07) If @sweden and @HitchinUK can do it, Swindon really needs to get its act together. (Shame @Swindon and @SwindonUK are taken...)

(12:35:33) RT @SussexWildlife: What to do if you find a young bird out of the nest. Please share this important advice. http://t.co/ugJKrkDDcG

(13:12:47) Rather timely - this week's @podquiz features Pachelbel's Canon, which was played at @poots's and my wedding 16 years ago today. Lovely :)

(17:19:22) The return to wrist-worn technology is at least good news for people who like to ask what time it is when someone's holding a pint.
