You know the last post? The one about getting a puppy and doing a puppy blog that would be made into a Hit Film a bit like 101 Dalmations only with less of a cast? Well, I've been a bit slow off the mark.
And now the ickle guy weighs five stone and smokes twenty B&H's a day. So I've missed the puppy boat by the tiniest margin and will have to bring you up to speed with everything else.
After all, loads has happened. I mean tons. No, really, it's been mad. Well, busy. Busy-ish. Alright, quite slow. Look, nothing has happened at all.
That's clear then. But I'm back for another bash and it's virtually the summer and even though I've missed an entire season of Simon Cowell's shiny teeth to marvel at, I think we can start things off again.
I will be reporting on My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding (the telly programme, not my own personal nuptials), offering deep political insight on world affairs (Egypt has cracked on and jolly well done them; the UK has shut all its libraries, so jolly poor show the toffs etc) and offering culinary tips that put Nigella right in the shade (dunk biscuits in brandy, glue them together with chocolate custard and hey presto it's a pudding).
Now if that's not a renaissance blog for you, then I don't know what is.
Oh - and if there's the slightest opportunity to mention Downton Abbey, you have my very best word that thy will, er, will be done. Oooh look - a picture!
I'd love to know what you think of the blog and do let me know if there are any topics you'd like In An Ideal World to cover. Honestly, it'll be like having your very own Andrew Marr. OK...maybe not quite.
Thanks for visiting and hope to see you again soon.
