My round-up of the key #budget2014 points from George Osborne's speech for +Mirror  today
George Osborne has delivered his spring statement, but what does it mean for you?

I've been looking after the +Mirror's online build-up to the +Eurovision Song Contest which has included doing song reviews. I've upset Romania, and since San Marino and Moldova got even lower scores I probably won't be welcome on holiday there either...
This is our Eurovision page: http://www.mirror.co.uk/all-about/eurovision%20song%20contest-1

Ireland's entry is my most recent review (and a decent song) http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-previews/eurovision-2013-preview-ireland-entry-1866124

My favourite so far though is Spain's: http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-previews/eurovision-2013-preview-spain-entry-1855493

I will be live-blogging on the night... I may need to employ bodyguards afterwards.

Today I took a break from writing about Margaret Thatcher's funeral for the +Mirror to write about the best ever resignations.
Something of a change of pace and a lot of fun.

This week I have mainly been writing about Margaret Thatcher and putting up other people's Thatcher stories for +Mirror Online.
Helping put together the frontpages - and working out what was said abroad - was particularly interesting. I may work online, but sometimes you can't beat a paper (see here: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/margaret-thatcher-dead-newspaper-frontpages-1820371)
This is the latest piece...

Things I like to write about:

1) Football: I went to Fulham 1-0 Aston Villa on Saturday - read my match report here http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/fulham-1-0-aston-villa-goal-1391585 and a bit from Paul Lambert here: http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/fulham-1-0-aston-villa-villa-1391592

2) Strictly Come Dancing: Read my take on Saturday's show here: http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/how-louis-smiths-dirty-dancing-1392666
Now I'm off to my dance class...

I've been continuing to write about the +Eurovision Song Contest for +Mirror online. Nobody's set up a  Facebook group having a go at me this week (as far as I'm aware) and the songs have been somewhat better to be fair. 

I wasn't that fussed on Denmark's hotly tipped entry though.

Finland's was my favourite of today's batch

I challenge you to read this without a tear coming to your eye.
Brian Reade is a brilliant writer - it's a privilege to have him as a colleague.
RIP Anne Williams - an inspiration

I had the pleasure of talking to Reading's Alex McCarthy for the +Mirror on Saturday after his impressive show against +Liverpool FC.

I'm now back to writing about Margaret Thatcher's funeral...

Love this picture! The +Mirror has a grand tradition of using photography so getting involved in the daily picture trends on +Google+ seems like a natural fit.
We do a picture of the day on our Facebook page every day too - like us at http://www.facebook.com/dailymirror
 
One lovely picture from the Daily Mirror archive this morning of naval cadets taking a swim around the training ship Mercury in September 1916 #nauticalwednesday +NauticalWednesday
