disappointment

'Hmmm', frowns your agent, peering at you over the top of his spectacles as he ruffles the pages of your latest manuscript, 'I presume this is just a working title'. 'Er, oh, of course' you reply as you recall the long northern winter of toil it has taken to finally come up with Petite anglaise in the north with a one track mind. 'And you really need to include some short and snappy pieces which give the impression that you have other things to do in your life than blog but not that you've nothing to write about because not much of interest has happened to you lately'. You're already mulling over his advice as you get up to leave. 'Oh, Rilly dear, one more thing...' he calls out as you reach the door. You turn around in anticipation 'Send wife in the north in on your way out, there's a love'

But Rilly, darling, you readers want long ones.

Look on the bright side, Ms Super.

At least you won't be the one who has to be explaining on the blog how the hubby's long trips on 'work' to the City are actually his opportunity for some serious extra-curricular activity. I am longing to read how 'wifey' explains her husband's shagging expedition in suitably flowery prose.

By the way, if you want to parody an even worse blog, check out the following...

Although, come to think of it, it may be beyond any form of satire..

Ah, you must have been the one o'clock appointment after me...

PS. Is there no room in your side bar of untalented writers (though gifted strippers) from Wales? Or should I just move north and write about my son's inflamed bunion and a rather funny trip to see the chiropodist?

anonymous, it's hard to know how to answer that without the kind of dreadful inadvertant double entendre I've been so careful to avoid so far, so I wont, so there

second anonymous, I don't know to whom you might be referring in your comparisons but just because my life obviously bears some similarities to someone else whose blog you may have read does not my blog a parody make. How do you know it's not the other way around anyway? I am quite sure that whoever it is you have in mind and also the other person you mention are both decent folks just blogging along like the rest of us.

chippy, thanks ever so for visiting. It may well have been you who was there the other day, but I have to say I don't recognise your face, so I can't think what I was looking at when you passed me. I've had a look at the links list and I'm sure I've got room for a small one..

There's nothing small about The Chipster. Which is why you probably missed me. And I'll be the next Wife in the North of my name isn't Crispen Whitaker Dale!

Thanks for the link. Thong on.

I'm afraid the 'next Wife in the North' sobriquet is taken Crispin, but you can always be the 'next next Wife in the North' if there's nobody after me in the queue, or of course somebody has to be the next 'Strife in the North' when I make it big..
