Chris has gone to Church in the next village and the dogs are all heaped together on the kitchen sofa, unwilling to get up into the fine , grey mist and rain which looks as though it has set in for the day.
This is the time for coffee, eggs Benedict and Radio 4 Extra.....
Radio 4 Extra is a little gem of a radio station. For those that do not know ( and I am quoting wikipedia here) Radio 4 extra is:-
"BBC Radio 4 Extra, formerly known as BBC 7 and BBC Radio 7, is a British digital radio stationcomedy, drama, and children's programming nationally 24 hours a day. It is the principal broadcasting outlet for the BBC's archive of spoken-word entertainment broadcasting "
What wikipedia does not make clear , is the fact that Radio 4 Extra often cherry picks the best the brightest of the BBC productions for a re airing...this morning I have enjoyed a cracking adaptation of Kipling's Jungle Book....(with Eartha Kitt literally shining as Kaa the snake) and as I type this, Kirsty Young is in the process of interviewing Debbie Harry for Desert Island Discs

Tomorrow, I will catch the 1959 re run of Paul Temple and the Conrad Case and if I remember on Thursday, I will try and catch The Chief Inspector Dover Mysteries from way back in 1976,
We are lucky having the BBC here in the UK...... but if it was up to me I would rip most of the shitty tv programmes off BBC1 ( apart from Sherlock of course) and replace them with some of the quality radio productions from the past and present.....
But, alas, a day cannot just be crammed with breakfast eggs, good drama and a warm kitchen....
dogs have to be walked in the rain..........and I need to burn off the calories before my weightwatcher's weigh in tomorrow morning
