|The One and Only....|
In the middle of all this hoo-ha, the Sunday Life newspaper then rang as well! FTLOG, at this stage, I didn't know whether I was coming or going. I BELIEVE my mouth went into overdrive and I overshared all kinds of stuff about secret shoe stashes and big pants with a complete stranger though, but I won't actually KNOW this till this Sunday when the paper comes out. Oooops!
Then they told me that a photographer was going to come out that very afternoon for photos, and of course, it was Sod's law that my hair was in a greasy ponytail, (although as far as Frank was concerned it was all tumbling curls), so I'd no choice but to wash it right away.
The photographer arrived at 330pm, just as I was finishing up another radio interview-this time with Downtown/Cool FM. (Stop already!).
I also had no idea that the boys were going to be photographed as well, and they were absolute urchins.... I mean, you know it's bad when the (childless) photographer suggests putting a comb through their hair!
For the shot - Luke was supposed to cuddle lovingly up to me and gaze happily over my shoulder as I typed on my iPad, but he was most unhelpful, wriggling off my knee and haring off at every opportunity. In the next far fetched scenario, the boys were meant to frolic outside in the background, while I sat working serenely in the sunroom - it was all going surprisingly well, until a fight broke out and Rory arrived in, mid photo, wailing at the top of his lungs. (I'm FAIRLY certain that Angelina doesn't have to deal with this kind of crap.)
Thankfully, he eventually got the money shots, and then he bolted out of this House of Fun, as fast as his three bags of camera equipment would allow. Not that I blamed him- in fact, I briefly fantasised hitching a lift, but the bewitching allure of an evening packed with homeworks, hurling and piano was understandably hard to resist.. So there it is-my brief heady brush with fame- fun while it lasted but I suspect that my five minutes are well and truly up! Happy Friday y'all!
