Where am I going?

You're going to Kiss & Make Up's exciting first birthday party/Helen's More! magazine leaving do, of course.

The numbers all go to nine. Look, right across the board.

Here's what I played at the last Kiss & Make Up. I also lied, and told someone that I'd play Rock 'N' Roll Star by Oasis "a bit later on". I didn't. I'm sorry. I would have. But it turned out I didn't have it with me. I cannot apologise enough. (But they have split up now, so some might say we should just move on and get over it...)

Exciting news just in

We are incredibly proud to announce that Kiss & Make Up's very own Eva gave birth to a beautiful bouncing baby boy this afternoon. More news as we get it. We look forward to welcoming him to the buffet as soon as he's on solids, and in the mean time we are sending all the Green family lots of love.

See you at the Griffin later to raise a toast.
