A couple of weeks ago I mentioned a Sunday Times interview.
To be quite honest, I had forgotten all about it, but Herself hadn’t and she suggested I go and buy the paper today as she wanted to see the photograph of Penny.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Sunday Times, it’s one of those papers where you need a fucking lorry to bring it home. There are endless papers within papers and if that wasn’t enough there are reams of magazines, both plain and glossy. The one good thing about is that I reckon we are talking about at least five acres of forest.
Anyhows, I toddled down to the village, bought the last one in the shop and hefted it home.
I set to working my way through the pile and as luck would have it, I found what I was looking for right away. Or rather I should say I didn’t find what I was looking for.
What I found was a great big two page spread all about “Mummy Bloggers” or some such. Aha thinks I, this must be it. I skimmed through the whole thing and then realised there was a tiny block near the bottom of the second page with a mention that men “blog” too. There was even a picture of a bloke with his kid.
I skimmed through that little block and found the very last paragraph where they mentioned this site. “Winner of an award” they announce. “It’s four fucking awards you dozy pillocks!” I reply. The half hour interview had been condensed into a small paragraph, most of which had been lifted from this site.
What was worse, there was no picture of Penny.
I honestly don’t know why I bother.
