The reason I am writing this today is to tell you, hold on a minute I just want to tell you about ‘ROLANDAS’ the best clothes shop in town. Battersea Square, Sheila, who looks like a model, growls like a panther and chooses clothes that make me drool like a baby, kitted me out for my photo shoot tomorrow.
Enough with the similies already although I do feel I might explode with energy.
It’s that friggin’ Barry bloke, never sleeps, wakes me with ideas, picks up the phone when I have a brainstorm and still won’t explain what will happen when I hit the airwaves although,
I watched a handsome young man present a programme last night about super stars on the internet. It may have something to do with that kind of thing.So I’ll be competing
with a piano playing cat whose had more hits than David Hay?
No the reason I am writing today is to tell you, well actually I’ve just sat down to write, taken off my ring as I mean bizness. I’ve only got three hours before I meet the old git at The Arcola to see something and meet his new cohorts.
Then I shall pop into the daughter and give her some crackers and that’s crispy ones not the Christmas variety. I thought I might buy a box in TKMaxx but I don’t need another pack of playing cards from Taiwan or pair of nail clippers from Seoul.
I did buy a cheap faux leopard skin coat though and a hat made in China for the shoot although I now look like a double for Joan Collins’ tarty sister, not Jacky, not Jacky…..
But the reason I am writing this is to tell you – hold on a minute I made the best green soup last night. Can’t remember what’s in it but I’ve just sprinkled over some cayenne pepper and pink Himalayan salt. I’ve slopped a little on the keyboard but ttthat’s seeems to be pokk.
No Jo, my agent, said I can now tell you that I am starting on January 9th on Radio London. Three hours every Sunday 9 -12. So you can have an early breakfast, late brunch or a pre dinner snack with me.
Came out of the blue. I am thrilled. Pays for the flat, keeps me in the flow and allows me to have the best mint tea in London in the restaurant/caff next door.
I think I will be in Broadcasting House, the very place I started 400 years ago. A medium called Batty Balcome told me forty years ago that if you stand still long enough the conveyor belt of life comes round again.
‘What’s for you won’t go past you.’ she said.
Well I haven’t stood still for long but this gig was definitely for me. I feel blessed.
So set your dial to 94.9. I have to find it too, and join me for some Sunday morning banter. I can’t wait, and neither can my memoir. So sod off and get on with your chores and we’ll talk 2morrer.
