End of an era - MP hanging up her... erm... keyboard

It is with deep sadness that we must inform you that Morningpaper has, after four glorious years, decided to retire her mouse and cease to produce the Talk round up. Apparently she has a "proper job with benefits". This Friday's round-up will be her last (so do make sure you're preferences are set to receive it.)

Thankfully we have been rescued from the slough of despond into which we at MN Towers had tumbled by the news that none other than Aitch, who currently scribbles the TV round up for our parenting newsletter, has agreed to step into the breach. We're delighted that's she's cheap available and ready to pick up where MP will very soon be leaving off. So more bumsex then.

"even grownups who are not women"

Sorry - what are these people you speak of? No, wait, I've got - "husbands". Is that the word I'm looking for? I have a vague memory of something else though - it's on the tip of my tongue...

I'm a bit envy, I bet you'll be drinking your tea hot and weeing in private MP. (I'm sipping room temperature green tea before going off to supervise bum-wiping.)

The other day I had a MEETING IN A CAFE WITH LASAGNE WITH A VIEW OF THE SEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I nearly died from pleasure

MorningPaper, I shall miss your witty lines.

Hope you are enjoying your real life.

(and I forgive you for calling me scary)

Lasagna with a view of the sea? Wow. Can you order that in a crappy industrial estate in the Midlands and still get the view?

That's progress, that is. grin

Norbert - on a recent trip up the M1 we saw 34 Eddies and only 24 Norberts. How's that then?

I enjoyed the round ups too, so thank you MP. Especially her penultimate one as I got my first ever name-check!

Many thanks to you Morningpaper for your very enjoyable GBADU emails. I have laughed out loud many a time and even wept some tears of mirth reading your collections. Good luck with the job.

Has it only been four years? I can't remember when MP was not doing the round-up. Possibly i wasn't born yet or something hmm

Good luck in your new job, and good to luck to Aitch too.
