Choose Life


We've had a fine holiday week at home, mostly because the sun has shone - proper hot sun with top temperatures, the lot. So it's been Kew Gardens, the seaside, sausage barbecuing at the back, that sort of thing. We also saw the Olympic torch relay through Richmond which, hulking great sponsor lorry crassness aside, was strangely moving.

In other news...Trainspotting director Danny Boyle Isles Of Wonder live sheep Beckham torch-ball cast of thousands Macca, er, Muse. Muse?

Underworld.

Welcome to the greatest city on Earth, world.

  9. The East Beach, bit less crowded. Fish and chips from the cafe, wind break up with a brolly on top to shade us from the sun, who'd have thought, and a tide so low in arrival the sand seemed to go on forever (and had a proper seaweedy smell)

  10. There was a exclusive clip on this morning's news using Mud's Tiger Feet. Not sure if I like the sound of that.
