It's in the post...

Spent yesterday buzzing between meetings with Skillset, the BBC's new Director of People Lucy Adams and then did some clandestine union organising at a national newspaper (the fruits of which you will have to wait until they blossom - that sounds like a badly mixed metaphor but I can't work out what it should be).

I also finished my contribution for an International Federation of Journalists' discussion document on the future of journalism, due to be considered by their Executive which meets in London in a week's time with a final report presented to their Congress in Cadiz in May next year. Given the speed things are moving at I'll probably have to rewrite my section a few times before then!

This afternoon I'm off to DCMS to hand over 1000 Don't Top Slice the BBC Licence Fee postcards as part of our campaign to defend public service broadcasting.

In the morning I'll be off to support CWU members on their picket lines. Find out what you can do to support their action here - remember, in every dispute we have had they've supported us. You never know when you might need the posties!

I think you'll find that it's normally flowers that blossom, fruits ripen.

And, according to the news, you've got the morning off.
