Once I wore my aprons high.

The hot climbers have finally arrived!

I have taught Eurovision Spin. Italy featured because one of the regulars is an Italian friend of mine. Sweden also featured because Denmark's was awful and I wanted a Scandi one.

But class faves were Ooh Ah Just a Little bit, Viva La Diva and of course Waterloo.

We had tiaras and *fizz.

*Schloer - it's vile

I think Viva La Diva might be my fave Eurovision entry ever.

Oh and we OF COURSE had the yodelling and all agreed Romania was robbed.

Last night I liked Moldova and Romania best. Today I've been doing my usual thing of listening to all the ones I semi-liked on YouTube without watching them, to see how the song stands up when you can't see the performer or the staging (IOW whether I'd want it on my MP3 player), and Sweden and Austria are really growing on me.

I might get the Belgium one.

Oo aa Just a Little Bit is one of my favourite Eurovision songs. I was gutted we didn't win with it at the time - we woz robbed. It was much better than Love Shine A Light which then did win.

D3 just came home from a packed-lunches-for-the-week shop and discovered a new plastic £5 note in her change with what she's heard is a valuable serial number. Starts with AK47, apparently. She's checked eBay and people are asking between £2k and £5k for them. Don't know if anyone's paid that sort of price, but I suppose it's worth keeping an eye open for them.

I have bought myself quite the most spectacular hangover.

BrouTwo - 14 May 2017 12:53:30 (#9 of 2019)

I was hoping the last word of that sentence would be waistcoat. Ah well.

helenskywalker - 14 May 2017 13:14:03 (#10 of 2019)

I am in the garden listening to birds tweetling. I have put in a request for egg and black pudding.

Cordelia - 14 May 2017 13:16:20 (#11 of 2019)

I had egg and sausage and mushrooms. I really should go and finish building a filing cabinet now, but the new Jodi Taylor is calling to me.

marble - 14 May 2017 13:56:57 (#12 of 2019)

I have just had lunch in the garden and am now contemplating my options. Snooze, cut the grass, or revision.

Ricolas - 14 May 2017 13:58:15 (#13 of 2019)

Theatre again this afternoon. Sondheim today.

Sabacious - 14 May 2017 13:58:31 (#14 of 2019)

Morning. Remarkably hangover-free here due to being very careful at notorious boozehound friend's party last night. US customs need to be negotiated soon and feeling chipper is desirable. Plus I have to drive at the other end. All in all things are looking up, and it's 33 degrees there today.

LippyPongstocking - 14 May 2017 14:22:20 (#15 of 2019)

I've eaten pea and mint soup and am wondering where the promised heatwave is? Looking at the forecast for the coming week or so suggests it won't be arriving any time soon.

I've also just dusted the piano. Why is there always so much dust?

Catspyjamas16 - 14 May 2017 14:27:59 (#16 of 2019)

I would like a firm massage and a nap please. Instead I am helping to take a broken lawnmower to the tip.

Cordelia - 14 May 2017 14:29:36 (#17 of 2019)

Lunch! I had forgotten about lunch.

Lagopus - 14 May 2017 14:30:18 (#18 of 2019)

It's pretty heatwavey down here in Bloomsburgh. And the pagans are out in force on the Pagan Pride March. Where force = about 15 people, some of them with antlers and some with leaves on their heads.

Ricolas - 14 May 2017 14:51:40 (#19 of 2019)

I nearly melted earlier taking the across south London with the roof down.

Waiting at theatre now for kick off. With exhausted wide who did not get in till half five this morning. Tsk. The young eh?
