I wrote most of today's post in advance, ready to post this evening. However, this morning, news came that Sir Terry Wogan lost his battle with cancer in the early hours of this morning aged 77.

Some years ago, I was lucky enough to meet some other TOGs online and joined a community of some wonderful and amazing people who are generous, kind, funny, clever, supportive and generally awesome, but all with only one thing in common, we all listened to Terry Wogan's radio shows on Radio 2.

I was able to listen, this morning, to the special show broadcast in remembrance of Sir Terry's long and illustrious broadcasting career, it should be on the iplayer, along with Richard Madeley's show, in what I still think of as Sir Terry's slot, which included a lot of listeners fond memories of Sir Terry and music that he enjoyed.

I can only imagine how his family feels today, but his loss is, for me, the end of an era.

Happy New Year - 2016

Annual apology because I let it slip last month. Again. Sorry.

So, this year, will be better.

Well, today is 1st January 2016, so far we've slept in late (well, later than normal), had waffles for breakfast, watched some telly... and that's about it.

My beloved family are playing Lego Batman, I'm about to stick a lasagne in the oven for a late lunch and then I shall start reading my first book of 2016.

This afternoon, we will have a family film night (we wrapped up some drinks, popcorn and a new dvd, in a box for LittleBit to open).

and that's about it for today...
