This week was to be healthy week. I've got my bike in London and was to cycle to work. In addition I would take sandwiches.
As it transpired I only actually made sandwiches on two occasions this week.
On the first occasion I carefully prepared my sandwiches in the evening, and placed them in the fridge. In the morning I completely forgot them. When I found out I was absolutely furious. I ate them for tea to punish myself for being so rubbish.
So of course when I prepared sandwiches last night I was determined to make sure I took them to work. I wrote a note. I also set a reminder on my phone. SANDWICHES! It screamed at me as I awoke this morning.
Thus, I did not forget to take the sandwiches to work. What I did do, however, is completely forget I had them in my bag once lunchtime came round. I duly trotted off to the canteen and frittered away £3 on potato waffles (it's a good pun if you accept the term 'fritter' for crispy potato foodstuff).
So once again I was cross with myself, and once again I find myself eating cheese and pickle sandwiches for tea.
Although, as it happens, they have been welcomely, and summarily scoffed because, as mentioned, I am on the train.
So what's the moral of the story?
Don't whinge about sandwiches, perhaps.

It's far from revolutionary I'm afraid, but I've found out to my cost that it's very difficult to conform with election law AND give both sides of an argument (and due credence to other parties representing Yorks and Humber) in just 3 minutes...
Nevertheless, I'm quite fond of the music bits - taken from La Llorona by Beirut. Possibly should have used more.
CUE: It's the European elections tomorrow. Adam Gabbatt's been out to meet some of the candidates and find out what, if anything, the elections mean to people here in Sheffield.

N.B. The 'cue' to this (read by newsreader/presenter) would be
"Comedy’s been popular on radio and television ever since the first commercial radio broadcasts in the 1920s. But how do comedians get their foot in the door?"

A weekend of much comedy here in Sheffield, where the inaugral Sheffield Student Comedy Festival took place. It was organised by the universities own 'Shrimps', an improv comedy troupe, and featured sketches, improv, standup and more from around the UK.
But a good night had nonetheless. All the acts were lovely, and very amusing. I’m backing Joe to win the final in Edinburgh.
