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.

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.

My round-up of the key #budget2014 points from George Osborne's speech for +Mirror  today

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'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.

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

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.

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...

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...
