Darling, never has a Best Actor Gong been so richly deserved. Your Oscar put Liam Neeson's into a cocked hat.
Call me soon, you must introduce me to your Elias at some point.

What a week it's been. Richard III has been found.
The Gay Marriage Bill has been passed, it's not quite law, there are a few more hurdles to get over but I look forward to the day when men and women are free to marry the person they love regardless of gender.
I must admit to being extraordinarily happy today.

I have spent the last few days at the Olympics watching our splendid sportsmen and women winning gold medals galore.
I don't think I've ever been as proud and have been weeping and cheering in equal measure. It is so refreshing to see the media concentrating on the endeavours of these brave athletes rather than who is sleeping with who and etc.
If anyone is looking for me, I can be found at the Olympic Stadium in the Olympic Park in Stratford, London...

I always take a moment to remember those who are no longer with us
and try not to think about the time my name will be in the list and hope my friends will remember me as the new year approaches

I am feeling strangely chipper. Not sure why but I will seize the day and make the most of it. Despite the horrendous week, the slaughter in Norway, the worsening debt crisis and of course Hacking Gate, I am still in an offensively good mood!
So my darlings, speak now and tell me your piece.
Good mood? Bad mood? Hopeful? Hopeless? Let us discourse a while, let us have some social intercourse!

Somewhere in the midst of the crowds...
Ian sees the camera panning the crowd.
Shoulders back he puts his arms in the air and sings along at the top of his voice. No matter than the song is about three octaves too high for him, no one can hear him in an audience this size.
In the van, the techies work at great speed to get the footage out. Someone pauses. "Isn't that Ian McKellen on the barrier ... for Beyonce?"

Delivered to The Urban/Townsend/Cooper Household
Attached to a big basket of flowers is a card...
Happy Birthday, darling
Have a wonderful day with your boys.
Much love, Ian
Inside the basket of flowers are two plugs and a remote control with another card
It has dual controls and a range that should cover your house; I checked before I bought it.

Thank you for all the lovely cards and presents. I really appreciate them and I will be sending thank you notes in the post to one and all!

Friday morning, somewhere in New Zealand
Ian reads his email on his iPhone while make up fusses around him. He sees the electronic missive from Daniel and resolves to send him a pair of sheer hold ups when he gets a moment to call his own.
For now he regards his reflection, as Ian recedes and Gandalf the Grey reappears.
It's good to be home.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching and rewatching this. The cause is just, the voiceover as incomparable as you would expect from my old friend, Jude Dench
. I will leave you to your own conclusions.

Congratulations to ....
Steven Davies for coming out.
Professional sportsmen live in a very rarefied and masculine world. It must have taken him a lot of courage and for that I salute him.
