Sandi Toksvig the last few weeks

Friday 11th March
Today, Sandi was back from being under the weather, so I guess that means she was above the weather. Today we were running on communist time, as Sandi was wearing a rather chunky watch featuring a waving Chairman Mao, whilst in the House of Lords it was still Thursday, as they'd had a bit of an all-nighter debating the terror laws. Sandi held a reception for former British ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray and journalist and editor Alkarim Jivani, discussing how Norway is so well-run its PM can get worked up over Ikea only drawing men in its flat-pack instructions, and we worried about sacred cows causing congestion on India's roads. Perhaps it's time for a cow congestion charge?
Thursday 10th March
Sandi was under the weather so
Bonnie Langford hosted today's show, she spoke of ring tones for dogs, the real Truman Show, Desperate Housewives with expensive toddlers and a Romanian man who keeps his wife in a pigsty.
