I just thought I'd let you know that I won't be with you for the Morning Show on Friday, but I will be joining Claire and Debbie on Monday for an anniversary special!!
Can you believe it? – it's already a year since the first show with Debbie and Dale as your presenters. In that time I hope you agree that we've created an hour that kicks off your day with energy and enthusiasm, not to mention the chance to win £50 or more!
If you have any favourite moments or memories from our first year do let me know by commenting below.
Secret celebrations for Olley's birthday
Let's talk about Friday first. It's Olley's birthday, and it's a big one! He's not too happy about shouting it from the rooftops, so instead of an extravagant party, he's decided he'd like to do something special with the children.
Charlie's GCSE exams and Rebecca's A Levels will have finished, so the atmosphere at home will be much lighter and we'll all be ready for some fun.
As Bex is off to university in the autumn (if she gets the grades… fingers crossed!) we may not be having so many times together as a complete family, so I've planned a surprise that I know we'll all enjoy.
I can't wait, but I mustn't let you in on the secret yet in case Olley gets wind of the plan. I promise I'll tell you all about it and show you some photos next week.
Gatecrashing Monday's Morning Show
Usually on Mondays I have a busy day doing all the boring chores I didn't get done over the weekend, but this next Monday brings something different – the 1st anniversary of the Morning Show.
I'll be gatecrashing Debbie and Claire's normal show, and we've extended it to two hours as there's so much to get in, including a fantastic Kim & Co Today's Special Value.
Some brave viewers will be joining us on-air for breakfast and it will all be a bit of a party. I hope you can make it, and also for the rest of the week, which will be business as usual with Simon and me at the helm from 9am to 10am.
Can I manage five early starts next week? With the help of a restful family weekend, I'm sure I'll make it!
See you on Monday!
