About to go on...
For a month Ash has been certain what he wanted to be for Halloween. A Zombie. A Green Zombie. Like the ones in Paranorman. He’s talked about it every night and every day. This afternoon he let us get half way through putting his green make up on before he decided it was too scary. Fortunately last year’s costume, a dinosaur rider, was ready, waiting and acceptable.
From Amanda's feed. We were on our way back from the Puppet Barge, where we saw the Insect Circus: beautiful wooden marionettes. Ash has decorated himself with leaves and is wearing a Coraline tee shirt as an overskirt. I'm wearing my fancy hat, and a nice coat I picked up from a second-hand store in Marylebone. My feet are not quite as big as they look.
What I was doing two years ago. Hanging with Chattering Nuns. #goodomens
Four years ago, on 16 September 2015, Ash was born. Right now he's funny, unstoppable, musical, loves stories and the Beatles and climbing trees. (While technically all those things are true, actually right now he's fast asleep.) Who knows whether any of these things will be true a year from now, or a dozen? This is him, yesterday, clambering inside an ancient oak tree. It's a delight, if some days an exhausting one, to be his father. Happy fourth birthday, Mister Ash.
For the record I would like to make it clear that I had nothing to do with the theft of the Golden Toilet from Blenheim Palace. My presence here is purely coincidental. I did not take it nor do I currently know where it is. But it has to be the best crime I've ever had nothing to do with today.

A writer/showrunner and a director after 3 hours of solid talking. We did #goodomens DVD commentaries on episodes 1, 3 and 6. Who did the others? Wait and see...
I spent some time over the last few weeks in my favourite place in the world, the Isle of Skye. This is a photo I took of the Quairang, which is a lot like being in Faerie. Go to Skye, but go off-season, when the weather is blustery and the queues are gone, and the restaurants will be happy to feed you without you booking in advance. (Talking about which, thank you Scorrybreac in Portree for feeding us so fantastically.)
