Kim is proud of many things in her life, but this week it was all about the pants pride.
So much so that she was showing them off in the office.
Elizabeth Williams from the news department and Puppy Lola went to the best party ever a ‘Puppy Party’.
I realised the other day that some people would have no idea what the Eagle Studio looks like, and so, Voile!
You know when someone posts a picture of your childhood years and you cringe, the best thing to do is not send it to me so I can put it in my Blog, Specs from the Love Crew hasn’t learnt this yet. I love the dungaree skirt.
Back row, 3rd from right
Specs today with out the Dungerskirt
Being Burns Night this week PG and Bev were turned into their heros.
The Crankies never looked so good. We think Bev looks like Miranda Hart.
The real winner was... anyone that didn’t see it.
Thats all this week, have a top weekend.

It’s been an unusual week, I’m attempting to get fit, “That’s not that unusual” you may say. It is if the only fitness advice you take is from a crazy Geordie. Bev has given me some exercises to help with my back fat, the best one is the “Plank”.
You have to stay like this for as long as you can, it really hurts.
As with everything sporty, we had to make it into a competition, the ‘Plank Off’.
It was joy on Wednesday when PG returned from his holiday.
Looking similar to a Persian Prince, or so he said.
Bev was delighted to stop sharing the studio with a man who smelt of Garlic, following a night involving a lot of garlic bread I was ordered to go and buy parsley to get rid of the smell.
Also had a really good chat with Tom and Katie from our album review podcast team about
my favourite album of 2011, have listen.
That's it for now catch you next week

So after a full week of breakfast... I'm very tired, very tired and the question that everyone always asks about breakfast is "what time do you get up?"
I can do better than answer that, I took some piccies of my first hours of the day.
04:00 - Gloria the cat is too tired to even look at me.
04:12 - Early starts still need clean teeth!
04:16 - The elixir of life: Coffee 1 for the day.
04:21 - Note the time, the roads are all mine...
05:10 - the first human contact of the day Mr Antony Zahara,
I use the word human loosely, know one is really that human at this hour!
05:15 - A tired Bev.
05:55 - Prep for the show done,
I know!?! We actually think about what we say, you'd never know.
06:00 - ...and away we go with the 6am headlines.
Also it was a big week for Kim Robson, who hosted the Community Matters End of Year Celebrations
Kim had to wear a dress! Dress count for Kim over the last 10 years doubles to 2.
Bev and I were told by Olivia, the youngest member of our team, that we no longer know how to dance in the coolest ways. Bev and I set about proving her wrong.
Suzi Smith our graphic designer and Stuart Provan were so moved that they decided to show what they had in the dance locker.
Olivia was impressed !!
I also carried on with the Marathon training, 9 miles - ouch!
I'm going to run for the Eagle Radio Trust - the pain may as well benefit someone.
I won't lie, I think I look like a robber when I run:
Have a great weekend and I'll catch you next week!

So here we go, the first week back after the Christmas Break
After bragging on air that I used to be a breakdance star back in the day, Bev asked me to prove it:
I rest my case.
It was also a big week on breakfast when it came to prizes, I gave away another £1000 on the £1000 minute.
Barry from finance was so pleased I made it £2000 in two weeks.
Being the first week back it was also a week of showing off new xmas pressies.
This was one of my favourites, my Mum knitted it, not the thumb holes.
I've also started my Marathon training, getting ready for Berlin in September. I'm not alone though Katy Butler from our Radio Rocks team is running the London Marathon in April.
Katy is also the bearer of a the weirdest jogging injury ever - a dog gave her a knibble whilst on a training run. They dont warn you about that in the running magaziines
Finally we have a new section on the website - "Health and Beauty".
Bev appears on this where they review what she is wearing.
They gave her 4 out of 5, she was not a happy bunny!
Catch you next week have a great weekend!
