I arrived back in Shotley Gate at 1:50am last night. The drive from Brighton takes around 2hrs 15mins, and by pure coincidence 1:50am was exactly 2hrs and 15mins after the end of Celebrity Big Brother's Little Brother on Channel 4. But I'm sure it doesn't mean that I stayed in Brighton just to watch vacuous reality shows, and refused to leave til they'd finished. That doesn't sound like me at all.

Frankly it was a relief to get away. I'd made the mistake of being friendly to Lisa's mother, and had been forced to eat four Kit-Kats in return. Obviously I'm on a diet, so I was going to say no after the third one, but I felt it would be rude to refuse. The same applies to the two packets of Polos she gave me for the journey home. So I only stuffed my face out of politeness.

I did however find out the startling news that Lisa's sister went to school with Jessica Stevenson (star of The Royle Family and Spaced), and that Lisa's Mum worked for Jessica's Mum many years ago. With connections like this, it's only a matter of time before I'm co-writing a sit-com with Simon Pegg. I haven't been so excited since I heard about Lisa's close friendship with Christopher Biggins.

Anyhoo, I returned home to find an e-mail from my sister who is currently gambling on love (well, visiting her boyfriend) in Las Vegas. Apparently she went cycling in the desert, got bitten by a large insect, and now can't sit down. Which is very serious, and not at all amusing. So I'm not laughing.

But if anyone's planning to get married there in February, it might be wise to take some bug spray.
