Wee bit later this week. Maybe I was too wrapped up in the Ryder Cup or maybe I just had to wait until the end of the Strictly results. Some things are just better left unspoken to be honest.

I wanted this week’s song to celebrate today’s golfing victory. I thought about REM’s Radio Free Europe. I was determined not to play The Final Countdown by Europe. Then I saw Poulter dressed as a post box and I knew what I had to do. Enjoy.
Until next week, behave.
