: Is TG still alive and well?
It was TG dog snoring that woke Labrador Sparrow downstairs, setting off Mastiff Boot outside.
Our dogs last night:. 1 barking downstairs, the other snoring upstairs. ALL NIGHT. Switching sides to join the cats and that's that.
My wife is choosing caterers for Christmas party - whilst eating Pot Noodle I MADE FOR HER. Hello! Choose me; cheap and skilled.
only Beef and Tomato eaters accepted...."
I should think so too
Hello. Permission to rejoin the Twitterfold please. Enjoying lunch featuring the words Pot and Noodle and thought I'd drop in
I do love an optimistically named caravan and I've just found what might be the best I've seen. pic.twitter.com/c2cAYNiSRh
We're eating in here, separate from the crew, because we're popular. Honest. pic.twitter.com/PCZ3MqfHQG
Ukrainians, now that was a welcome. We thank you. Great to see you. All of you. pic.twitter.com/5EhwRVbKMz
Filming at remote cattle station in the outback where, from evidence found in my room last night, they farm spiders. pic.twitter.com/5VMT8jTqQP
I have 2 new books out - On The Road (a book about growing up) & Great Mysteries of the World (for all ages!). More: thehamsterscage.co.uk/books
PLUG ALERT PLUG ALERT:
It's early and I'm in Aus so a run before the sun begins it's daily rage. Whilst I do that, here's a shameless plug..
Ok, not sure where I got 'Oz' from; should it be Aus? Or Aussie or what? Bad start.
Still sweating after run. Damn it's HOT.
Straight off plane to OZ, at hotel check in & 1st thing they tell me is where to go for a run. Being a polite Brit, I went. Knackered.
To answer ?s: not going to Oz to 'do Celeb' - er, sounds dodgy. Going for work tho. Exciting project. It's a long way, so packed sandwich
On way to Oz. Which means in two days I'll be wondering how we ever get anything done in the uk cos we're ALWAYS ASLEEP.
Typical not on for ages then pops up with a plug. New show tonight, BBC1 9pm, Richard Hammond (that's me!) Builds a Planet. Hope you like it
Note to self: try not to forget Twitter acc password when changing phone. Am back. Also have sore neck and broken thumbnail. Exciting times.
THE best possible news: 'The Clangers' is coming back in 2015. Nothing to add. Might sit in front of TV with Lego and wait.
Now look, to clarify, the glass is BIG it's not just that I'm small. pic.twitter.com/lhAAUiA1Kc
Excellent. More Arts output announced for BBC. That's Top Gear secure then.
Watching Back to the Future. He starts in 1985 goes back to 1955. Nearly the same gap between when I first saw it to today. Feel sooooo old
: How can you hurt your back moving it? It can't be much bigger than a Hobbit's bed?”
That's as maybe but it's about scale. Muppet
Great. Just hurt my back moving the bed. Now I need to lie down. But the bed's in wrong place.
ALERT. DRUNK TWEET: thank you Warsaw. What a cool place. We didn't deserve you, but you were amazing. & thanks 4 pic pic.twitter.com/nNZNbnrj0U

Wow!!! Thank you Warsaw. You were amazing and we had a great time. There's a drink in front of me, so I might work on that for a bit now.
Oh my word, that is a big crowd. Gulp.
Let's get at 'em. pic.twitter.com/g6LvlmrpaA

Oh, Twerking, not Tweking. Sorry. Right, well I'll get started then. And I do it by the transfer window, yes?
Righto. Got it. Not Tweeting any more, Tweking instead.
Er, do I need my phone? Crash helmet?
: You missed everything. We're all doing other cool stuff now.”
Hah, love it when a craze ends suddenly. What we doing now?
Ok, so Twitter is handy, but NOT a reliable means of briefing self on recent events. Unless the world really has gone mad. Thanks.
Not been on for a bit cos phone broke.
Did I miss much?
Wife and daughters sussed it: longer they leave me in a bar whilst shopping = more gin consumed = less moaning about their bags of goodies
: why him not her?”
Well, cos Oliver's a boy's name.
And yes, am bored, waiting in French bar whilst wife and daughters shop.
: do you still have Oliver?”
How many more times.. Yes! Here is a picture of him
And yes, I said 'him' pic.twitter.com/iOcPC29iHj
:hate to be a pain in the arse, but it's the India special”
And I hate to agree... But you're right.
: Sitting here coveting RichardHammond Mini rather a lot. I know - it's not even yellow...”
Yup. And I killed it. Again, soz
: Watching #TopGear
Africa special on #dave
. how could you destroy that #minicooper
As it turned out, surprisingly easily
Mocked wife and daughters' wheeled holiday bags. Just walked length of French train carrying my suitcase. Feel stupid and my arm is numb.
