WARNING: This is a collection of my genuine distractions and may prompt laughter.

I an distracted by:

Comments sent in by my listeners:

'Once I took some black puddings out of the freezer only to find a mole! I had found it in the garden and intended to send it to Chris Packham for Springwatch' Mrs D

'My mum said women of a certain age shouldn't wear beige jackets as from the back they look like a baked potato.' Lorna Edinburgh

Travelling back in time:

I don't want to be a killjoy, but I remember a time before duvets were the norm, so I'm already apprehensive. And bearing in mind the lack of female toilets now, basic needs are going to be tricky.

Stylish Snippets:

Children, drunks and leggings NEVER lie

The Atom Bomb:

The idea of 'the bomb' had me awake for years. I felt it might be up to me to get the cellar ready, but Mum was rather casual about the whole thing.

I am genuinely distracted by everything, and I don't think I'm alone in this. I consider my love of distraction a thing to be cherished. Like the annuals of my youth, this book is filled with puzzles, activities and mental musings. I hope that every page tickles your fancy. This book might be a perfect conversation starter at a dinner table, or the last thing you're flipping through before bed. I promise that you'll laugh at least once. So here we go. I am passing my distractions on to you.
