Over to you

So you wake up and you stretch out an arm and you find a man in your bed. Your first thought as you wrap yourself around his warmth: "Fabulous, there's a man in my bed". His hand slides down your smooth and naked thigh and he murmurs something you cannot quite make out. Your second thought, and it follows light-speed quick, bearing in mind the room is black dark and you have only just made it to the surface of the day: "I can have a lie-in." You remove his fond hand as the baby starts to mew along the corridor. "Darling," you tenderly whisper into his ear. "You're on."

Hmmm...I thought the point of the parenting classes was to teach you that if you ignored a crying baby for 7 minutes [or is it seventy?] they would sleep better ? And wouldn't get the idea that a bit of wailing would get immediate attention. Enough time for a bit of a quickie, I would have said..

..to Anonymous, a quickie to the sound of a bawling baby does not appeal! Roll on the years when the room is quieter...but you are more likely to be, cough, interrupted by the creaking of an opening door and tiny footsteps padding along the landing...:)

Hmm..Perhaps your hubby is a tad concerned now that you appear to be sailing closer to the wind of blogging about your love life ? [shlogging ? shlagging?] He may be suffering from 'performance anxiety' knowing that he may be being 'marked' in a 'Strictly Come Hither' style on the blog.

Perhaps I can offer my services as a 'stunt double' for the love scenes? My only previous experience is on a television drama about a well-known politician, but my rates are very reasonable and I am used to having my performance in front of an audience subject to critique.

I am not as young as I was [I'm not Daniel Radcliffe, dear!] but what I lack in youth I make up for with enthusiasm and experience...

Give us a clue, here, Wifey - from your photo we have already short listed Rene Zellweger to play you in the film, but never having seen 'im indoors' we don't have any idea who to cast to play him.

Give us your suggestions, bearing in mind that George Clooney is more tied up with the directing 'behind the camera' stuff these days. Love and Kisses

re anon: how very kind to offer. I think it would entirely depend on which politician you doubled for...John Prescott? David Blunkett? Tony Blair? One might appeal more than another.

re next anon; I refer you to a previous post http://www.wifeinthenorth.com/2007/02/note-to-wise.html
(I did not mean Deputy Dawg)although it is possible said actor might be a tad old for the part.
