So much is happening at the mo with our pending move to west London only a matter of 2 weeks away now!
For the past few weeks, our Broadcasting team have been working various 'shadow' shifts from our new studios, or I should say 'Media and Commerce Centre'.
The building is state of the art and set in beautiful surroundings, as you can see from my photo. Our set designers have also done a magnificent job of using every inch of available space, but you'll have to wait 'til our launch to see them – sorry!
As you know Charlie, Julian and I will share a dressing room! Which will be interesting to say the least – I'll be reporting back on anything newsworthy on that front, once we've moved in. You may have therefore noticed that the usual presenter patterns have been out of sync, whilst we make sure that everything is perfect for the big day in June.
On the 16th of June I will be doing the 10 mile Breast Cancer Care walk in Marble Hill Park, Twickenham. Weather permitting, I hope to bring Toby the Wonder Dog along with me – cold, rain or wind won't prevent him – but I'm worried if it is going to be a scorcher that it will be too hot for him and his shaggy coat! I think it starts at 11.30am, 'Mad Dogs and Englishmen' springs to mind. Why not come down and say hello – I'll be blogging about it in more detail soon.
It's 'Chelsea Week' at the Q this week – no, not celebrating our newly-crowned European Champions but the world-famous RHS Flower Show.
I'm presenting a few shows with that 'Gardening Silver Fox' Richard Jackson, which is always a highlight for me, as we always enjoy working with each other, but we also have to concentrate quite hard not to start giggling like two naughty schoolboys from time to time!
Enjoy the sun, whilst it lasts – long may it shine!
Take care until next time,
