Chris Corcoran, presenter of CBeebies' Doodle Do will be joining us for a live webchat on Mumsnet on Friday between 1-2pm.

And, lovely chap that he is, he's recorded a special pre-webchat video for you to watch - see below.

To celebrate Children's Art Week (6-12 July), Chris has joined forces with Haliborange to host a series of exclusive creative master classes for its newly launched Shiny School. Chris has created three imaginative tutorials for Haliborange Shiny School, designed to suit ages 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12 years and needing no specialised or expensive equipment. The site gives parents ideas and tips on how to have fun and learn something new as a family, and also provides nutritional advice.

Chris is happy to answer all your questions (within reason!) during this sponsored chat, and will also be giving some creative inspiration for things to do with your children over the summer holidays.

If you can't make it on the day, please feel free to post your advance questions here.

Spent all weekend at IL's, come back to this thread.

I only listen to Radio Wales for this show - the rest of the time it is exactly how you would imagine it to be - easy listening music and programmes about hill farmers...

envy at that Radio Wales for a local radio station
ours is truly atrocious. Honestly, it is really bad

emsiewill what a great link, that was so nice!

emsiewill Sat 11-Jul-09 19:03:56

I've never seen doodle do in my life, but I (doodle) do love listening to Rhod and Corky on a Saturday morning. And they always read out my texts - that's the advantage of it being a local radio station!

OracleInaCoracle Sat 11-Jul-09 18:06:10

think i love him even more now <swoon>

OracleInaCoracle Sat 11-Jul-09 18:05:31

aww how sweet, and he thinks we have a cracking sense of humour!

morningpaper Sat 11-Jul-09 17:26:36

emsiewill: Great link, awww he is too cute. I want to gobble him up.

Rhod Gilbert's lost luggage sketch is knicker-wettingly funny. Chris Corcoran is knicker-wettingly lovely. Everybody's a winner.

That was crude. I apologise. I've just been for a 10k run and I can't think straight. I'll regret it the moment I click post. Still going to click post though, it's the thrill of posting the word knicker on the web. Twice. I take my kicks where I can get 'em these days.

<<goes for lie down>>

Why why why is the Elvis routine not on Youtube? I want to share him with the world! Techymumsnetters, get on the case please.

edam Sat 11-Jul-09 16:22:21

ooh, Rhod Gilbert is a v. funny stand up, too. Thanks for the link!

emsiewill Sat 11-Jul-09 14:54:21

If you go here, at exactly 20 minutes in, you can hear Corky talk about doing this webchat (prompted by me texting in to the show). Sounds like he enjoyed it...

oh oh oh I missed it and Chris answered my question!

Seems he made a lot of women VERY happy... grin

SoupDragon Fri 10-Jul-09 23:36:46

Yes, our cats trashed our old (non washable covers) sofas and coffee table before children came along hmm

Washersaurus Fri 10-Jul-09 22:57:11

Before obviously grin

But the cat ruined it with vom etc waaay before the kids got near it....

SoupDragon Fri 10-Jul-09 22:55:56

Did you choose the paint before or after you had children?

Washersaurus Fri 10-Jul-09 22:53:18

Aaah bronze, the problem is that Laura Ashley paint is not designed with children in mind - you can't wipe it without taking the paint off the wall <sob>

Have told DH it happened whilst I was doing housewifey things in the kitchen grin

Divatheshopaholic Fri 10-Jul-09 22:52:36

oh no missed chris,too. our daughter love him

SoupDragon Fri 10-Jul-09 22:34:42

"there will be dp's confused by skittishness tonight, across the land, ymmw"

There will be even more DPs confused by requests to wear tight jeans, a thick woolly glove on one hand and have a ready supply of PVA glue and chopped up paper to hand.

harpsichordcarrier Fri 10-Jul-09 21:57:17

oh lord I am sorry to have missed this.
