7.00am Wake. Shower. Dress and eat to Radio 4. 7.30am Walk to bus stop, taking in tour of Barnes celebrity media houses. On the way, receive cheery wave from Cilla Snowball and Charles Inge. Derek Morris burns me up at the bus stop.

8.00am Buy The Sun and board the Hammersmith & City Line - still amazed at the number of commuters reading Metro. Must be an advertiser's dream.

8.40am Arrive at Great Portland Street and make my way to office. Pass Walker Media. Have yet to see Christine Walker arriving. Suspect she's always in earlier than me.

9.45am Would still like a coffee but get served another mint tea.

11.00am Catch up with Peter Bigg, the managing director of the British Television Advertising Awards. Shortlist has been chosen. Next steps: Campaign involvement and tables sold. How much for a jug of orange juice at the Grosvenor House?

12.30pm Check ITV share price and wonder where my taxi is.

1.00pm Lunch with Bill Muirhead, lots of business to discuss, but somehow never get round to it. Finally get to have the coffee I've really wanted.
