Wahey, happy new year's! I just had a fantastic time in North Yorkshire, thank you very much. Can I just say that self-catering cottages rock so much better than b&b's?

The kitten saga has ended - our new girl puzzah Minna 2 is sleeping the guest room as I type. She comes from a groovy village in the hills above Todmorden. I've been reading a cat psychology book for ideas on how to make sure all three cats will get on, but it says we should ignore the kitten for 10 days and lavish the other two with affection. I don't know if I can do that - I'm such a big softie when it comes to these puzzahs.

We just watched The Weakest Link - the drag queen edition. Bless 'em, they weren't too bright and only racked up £1400 (and who was the dopey diva who didn't know that Mariah Carey was married to Tommy Mottola??) but it was still fabulous and 100% more interesting than the usual motley of housewives from Wales.

Speaking of drag, that reminds me - I went to see a panto, I mean Steps - on the 24th. I didn't mention it at the time because I was a little bit ashamed. Who knew it was one of their last concerts? (well, probably everyone but me...) Anyhow, I can't say I'm heart-broken to see them go. I'd say about 50% of the show was fun enough, but the corporate whoring was just too much for me. Our 2 pm matinee was being filmed for the Sky Box Office feature that night. Apparently it wasn't enough that an arena of children had coughed up £24 each already, because Lee came out midway and asked them all to order the show that night, adding "Doesn't that sound like fun?" unenthusiatically. Yuck. We also had to endure each of them singing a solo song, the worst being Lee's ersatz Ricky Martin number. If you can tell, I really hate Lee. Oh yeah, and during one of the costume changes they had dancers come out with Steps Spitting Image-esque heads on to dance to "5,6,7,8" - and for the other one, they just showed one of their videos. Cheap, anyone? Oh well, at least the Moulin Rouge-themed routine for "Stomp" was amusing.

Well, I'm off to watch Si Graham Norton - Graham *and* tequila, two of my favourite things!
