Apologies for the quick rambling blog post. Totally shattered for tonight’s show. No idea why. Thing 2 slept great last night. I suppose that 7 months of sleep deprivation takes a while to wipe out. Anyway, here’s a podcast. It has music in it. Listen.

An earlier than normal podcast this week… Thing 2 woke up this morning at the terrifying time of 4am. Which I suppose is somewhat excusable for a 7-month-old. His brother, Edinburgh Man Junior, woke up an hour later at 5am. Just as we were getting back to sleep. This is less excusable. All of which has resulted in the live podcast being brought forward an hour due to extreme tiredness on the part of your host. Apologies for any confusion. The normal schedule should (hopefully) be resumed next week.

Last night’s podcast was a rambling shambolic mess, and I was so shattered afterwards that I didn’t even have the energy to upload it! So it’s a Friday morning update, for which I apologise.

Yesterday was “World Book Day” and for some strange reason, Edinburgh Man Junior’s school is allowing pupils to eschew their school uniform and dress as their favourite character from literature (or just their regular clothes) today. I had a panic yesterday when I thought I’d sent him to school in his uniform and all the other kids would be dressed up, but no. Turns out his school is doing it today. Phew. All week he’s been saying he’d just being going in jeans and a t-shirt until last night when, with no time to prepare an outfit, he declared his desire to go as Willy Wonka. So this is the best me and his Mum could do given the time. A fake Wonka chocolate bar. Coupled with his best ripped jeans he can claim to be Charlie Bucket. That is until he eats all the chocolate, and we get a phone call from the school telling us he’s been sick in the playground. Next year I’m not going to listen to him and secretly prepare an outfit just in case…

Just a couple of days ago I found myself wondering how long I’d been doing this podcast thing, so I decided to try and figure it out. And would you belive it? The podcast is seven years on this Saturday. Seven years! There’s nothing like a birthday to make you wallow in nostalgia, so that’s exactly what we’re doing on tonight’s show. I look back at every birthday the podcast has ever had, and play a track from the corresponding show. I through in a couple of extra tracks for good measure too.

I was about to end with “here’s to another seven years”… but then realised I’d be an even old fart then than I am now, so maybe not.
