We officially kicked off Christmas yesterday! An hour of Christmas songs played between 8am and 9am and it seriously got everyone in the mood! Lights are all (pretty much) switched on now, the festive jumpers are popping up everywhere and I’m already dreaming about all the food I’m going to consume in the next few weeks! Christmas really is one of my favourite times of year!
Something really exciting is happening just before Christmas, which I am equally excited about! Take That are playing a very special gig just for you! It’s at a really small, intimate venue, in London on Monday, December 14! The important thing to note about this gig is that you simply can’t buy tickets, then only way to be there is to win your way in! Just imagine being in a room with Gary, Mark and Howard, within touching distance! I know, the excitement is almost too much to bear! James and I gave away tickets all last week on Heart Breakfast, but make sure you keep listening to Heart throughout the day as Toby has more chances for you to win your way into that gig. It’s not one to miss and you would literally turn into the most popular person in the world, as everyone would be after your plus one!!
I just want to spare a minute for people that have birthdays around this time of year. You wait all year for presents and then you get two lots within a couple of weeks! Well today is my dad’s birthday!! Firstly, happy birthday Dad and secondly, I hope you like your present, I spent long enough making it! Now, I’m quite generous when it comes to gifts. So for my dad’s birthday, I decided to make him a card, found some nice words and printed them in the card, but tried to be all clever and replaced some of the words with chocolate bars! What I thought was a nice and simple idea turned into far more work than I could possibly have imagined! Firstly, to find some card big enough and strong enough to hold taped chocolate bars (13 to be precise!) was a challenge and then I spent absolutely hours cutting and sticking letters, bright pieces of card and chocolate bars to create the thing! Now, it’s finished I’m really chuffed with it, but there were a lot of points, where I thought ‘Why have I done this?! Why did I not just buy something, wrap it and be done?! I think it took me about five hours, so enjoy the chocolate, Dad, I doubt I’ll be making another one any time soon! But have you ever done that? Thought you would go a bit cheaper and a bit easier, but it’s turned out just a lot more effort all round?!
Join us weekdays from 6am!
