I kind of miss writing about Kate already. This was my vote for Kate's best look piece.
My favourite was the white with blue poppies. Or the yellow Roksanda Ilincic. I like bright and bold.

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...

The Royal Tour feels really wrong when you're doing an analysis of each of Kate's outfits on it.
It didn't feel as glamorous as the Far East tour - maybe a side effect of becoming a mum.
But I have my royal tour hat-trick having done Canada and the Jubilee tour previously (though all from the office in London).
Well done all the Kate bloggers who've been doing it throughout and have been a great read.

 
See all of Kate Middleton's outfits, hats, shoes and accessories on the royal tour of Australia and New Zealand

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
