from here to identity

I’m most awfully sorry for being so terribly terribly tardy in keeping this blog up to date. I must confess that I’ve been really rather concerned about identity theft lately and now that these child benefit discs have gone missing the whole business has caused me some great deal of worry. Can you imagine if those discs fell into the wrong hands and all the intimate details of my family life and all that terribly personal information about my children suddenly appeared on the internet and I didn’t even get any blog traffic or book royalties out it?! My neighbour is even more worried. He claims child benefit for his six children so I can see why he might be a little concerned although as the youngest is twenty five I really don’t know what consequences could occur that alarm him quite so much. I just hope that it’s so grim up north that nobody would even pretend to be me. I struggle to write the truth about my life and not have people think it’s all made up so I’m sure that nobody who was really only pretending could bring in the aga, the au pair, the big house and rich husband but yet manage to convey how awfully grim it is up north at all convincingly. Anyway, must dash as I have to send Natalia with a suitcase full of used notes and a false moustache to a secluded layby off the A19 to meet the chap from the Labour Party who collects my husband's donations. It's just good to see those chaps from the party are taking some measures to avoid computers and therefore anything underhand occurring, sigh. Back soon I hope, and thanks for bearing with me. Tootleoo chaps..

It's good to see that something stirred you up enough for a quick post Rilly - it really is so grim over there....

thank the lord you are well! i don't know about you, rilly, but i feel ever so much better now i've had that nice letter from hmrc apologising for the whole silly mix up. i'm sure it could happen to anyone, so i'm not cross at all now!
(summat rotten in the state of blogger, btw - we wordpressers are not being made welcome!)

Good to see you back Rilly! Blogland had become almost as dismal as Labour Party prospects, without you.

Good too, to see that some folk at least, are not deserting poor Gordon in his darkest hour! You're the very best kind of British stalwart (or call it brick); you really are!

Welcome back Rilly......we've missed you!

Marianne said...

Just time for a quick post then, Rilly. Hope you will spend more time with us soon.

You see, what's bothering me is that I never even got the letter... Maybe it's taking longer to get to London? This is clearly a case of discrimination against the South...

Chin up Rilly. Last I heard the Met were looking for them in Tilbury rubbish tip, so I expect they'll soon be found. Bit awkward for you up there at the mo what with the Northern Rock going tits up as well as all the other Northern faux pas, though. Not something in the air, I hope? Like lead or 'summat'?

Mr Farty said...

Gosh, Rilly, you had us worried there! Hope all is well up north, er, down south from us. Just make sure the au-pair doesn't get caught red-handed, like our poor Wendy Alexander.

Toot toot!

I don't want to distress your regular readers Rilly, but is there any truth in the rumour that your lack of recent postings is connected to a sighting just off the Northumberland coast of a well-groomed lady in a kayak furiously paddling towards Norway?

Sarnia said...

Cameron obviously reads your blog because he nicked Jack's comment for PMQs today.

I am so relieved that you are back Rilly! Where the hell have you been? We are lost without you.

@themill said...

God Rilly, we were worried. How the hell are you?
