Yesterday was the most incredible day, over thirty interviews to radio, TV and print.

I thought the day was starting with the Today programme. The car came for me at 5am.

I reckoned that I would do Today, pop back to the office at about 8am and then have a shower and breakfast.

I got into the car in an old pair of trackie bottoms, a big sloppy jumper, no make up, messy hair and threw my suit bag and tool kit into the boot.

I had the first inkling that the day was going to get busy when I realised that local BBC stations from across the country were vying for an interview before I got into the Today studio.

All this I have to say was going right over my head, until BBC Three Counties phoned - this is my local radio station, and as Roberto and Catherine come across as a decent pair of presenters with no hidden agenda, I jumped onto their programme and did the interview just before we hit Millbank.

By the time I had got out of the car the hour had panned out to Today, Nicky Campbell on BBC Radio Five live and BBC Breakfast TV.

"You can’t do breakfast TV", the vanity lobe in my brain screamed, "Your wearing no make up and the dog walking jumper."

With a guarantee that it would be head and shoulders only, I threw the suit jacket on, tried to make my face look presentable and, through gritted - how did this happen? - teeth, did the interview.

From then on, the day just snowballed, I never stopped talking.

The funniest interview of the day was the Jeremy Vine show - having talked abortion non stop all morning, I was kind of thrown when Jeremy asked, "So Nadine, how do we stop MRSA in hospitals?"

Back in the constituency today and it is nose down to incinerators, police, housing and social services.
