My morning routine is sacred to me and, most of all, silent

BLAISE TAPP: The lifelong influence of our classroom leaders

Have your say

With Easter and the Royal wedding coming up my other half, Sarah, will start the first of 17 days off starting on Friday.

Now for us self-employed people (yes radio presenters are self-employed), if we don’t work we don’t get paid, so I have no time off.

And for 17 days I will have my wonderful morning routine ruined. Working afternoons and evenings means my mornings are sacred. It’s my ‘man time’ to do all those important things women don’t understand, like watching Sky Sports News, organising and updating the iPod and compiling lists of things, like my favourite cars.

For the next 17 days I’ll be cleaning the garage, sorting the loft and heaven forbid, talking.
