The hot news for tomorrow morning is that Al will be on Radio Broadland around 7.30, when he will take part in the quiz on Rob’n’Chrissie’s show, ‘Over, Under, Or.’ Apparently, they will ask how many plastic bags Al has saved in the six weeks he has been plastic bag free. He keeps a tally, it seems, and knows. So the question will be asked and his interview will give the answer. This splendid show, which I’ve not had the pleasure of listening to yet, because I’m a Radio 4 girl at heart, is available live on the internet, so you can all listen to him, darlings; assuming you have read this before 7.30 am GMT on Friday.
Otherwise, I’ve been mightily annoyed by the vicissitudes of life, mainly technology, but it’s all sorted now and I have mellowed nicely. My iPod, which seemed for a while to be terminally buggered, is working again and I have finally persuaded the camera and the computer to live together in harmony. A large pine tree, which we were rather worried might fall on the house, has been felled and had a large crack vertically through the trunk, so we’re mighty pleased that we learned from the near-disaster of one barely missing Al & family’s house last winter and cut this down in time.
Dilly is taking on the chin the news that she has carpel tunnel syndrome in her right arm, although it wasn’t actually what she was being tested for – a sort of bonus, really, you might say.
