This file is being loaded under pressure from the staff in my office. Not having heard the interview yesterday they rang BBC 3 Counties to see if they could have a listen, whereby they were informed the interview had been clipped and re played throughout the day. 3C had also added an amusing backing track. They edited out the sound of the dropped cup of coffee!
So, from the back room staff - Peter, Pippa, and the interns - here's me 'losing it' on the Radio!!
I will be posting my final blog before the holiday tomorrow.

You Do Ron Ron
Yesterday, whilst catching a late breakfast, I agreed to a radio interview with my local BBC Radio Station - 3 Counties Radio - http://www.bbc.co.uk/threecounties/ <http://www.bbc.co.uk/threecounties/> regarding the impending parliamentary recess.
After a year of seven days a week, I make no apologies for hitting the sunlounger in August with a book in my hand that has absolutely nothing to do with politics.
However, in September it's back to work and the long recess myth I am afraid is just that, a myth.
The interview was with Ronnie Barbour http://www.bbc.co.uk/threecounties/content/image_galleries/local_radio_presenters_gallery.shtml?3 <http://www.bbc.co.uk/threecounties/content/image_galleries/local_radio_presenters_gallery.shtml?3> and I had a full cup of coffee in my hand at the time.
Ronnie said something outrageous and completely unexpected , I laughed so much that I couldn’t sustain the weight of my mug and it crashed onto the plate, spilling coffee everywhere!
After the interview was over the producer Paul came quickly onto the line - I could hear him holding his breath as he said, “I’m sorry about that Nadine” but it was fine.
I was in holiday about to begin mode, and anyway, any woman who says she doesn’t like flattery, is not speaking the truth??
