Celebrity

The pictures that illustrate this post were snipped from Channel 4's "Sunday Brunch". There's our beloved son hobnobbing with celebrity guests such as the comedian Ross Noble and actress Kara Tointon - both very well-known to British TV viewers.
Ian and Henry had spent the previous day preparing a series of vegan desserts ready to transport to the Channel 4 studios early on Sunday morning. Apparently, one of the production team managed to knock their entire tray of cupcakes onto the floor minutes before the Bosh! boys went live. Even so their eight minute slot went well and there is every chance that they will be invited back to this programme later in the year.
Now I guess it is just a question of time before tabloid newspaper reporters knock on our door, digging for dirt. I shall send them running for cover with the same curtness I apply to the endless fake telephone callers who interrupt my peace claiming to be representatives of "Talk Talk". Besides, there is no dirt to dig on our lovely son unless you include the time that I was changing his nappy. 

I was distracted by a telephone call and came back to  his changing mat to find that he had stuffed his little paw into a tub of "Sudocrem" and was happily consuming it like Winnie the Pooh filling his face with marmalade. I wonder if "Sudocrem" is vegan-friendly?

  1. Oh no! I can't really make out all that is on that big table, but I assume the cup cakes were not hastily put back on their tray and added to the feast.
    You could generate an additional income by selling things Ian owned as a kid/youth, or at least touched, to all his admirers coming to your door.

    1. Your assumption about the cupcakes is incorrect madam. Also, thank you for the celebrity souvenir idea. Would you like to buy a used tissue for 100 euros? (A special reduced rate just for you!)

  2. My daughter, then aged 2, once smeared the contents of a large tub of sudocrem in her hair and all across the back of the sofa, where she had taken her "booty"
    I was not best pleased.......
    It was a pig to remove. She had matted hair for weeks!

    1. I guess she is grown up now. Did she become a plasterer?

  4. Ian had better be careful. Before you know it he'll stranded in the jungle eating vegan cockroaches or skidding around an ice rink and all for the benefit of the great British tv-watching public.

    3. I like Celebrity Bankruptcy and Celebrity Rehab - both more tasteful than Celebrity Self-Mutilation and Celebrity Suicide.

    1. You could watch it on catch-up Terry. Go to the Sunday Brunch website and register to see the latest episode.

    2. Now I know why I can't find it on the website. I can't sign in because I don't have a UK address. Crap.

      But I'm sure the boys were charming and fit and fun and will become the spokespeople for their generation of vegans.

  8. It will be "Keeping Up with the Yorkies" soon! I'm not sure Ian will allow the gossip magazines anywhere near you, though! Some family secrets should remain secret!!!

    I'm glad the appearance by the young men went well. I hope they do get to go back on the show...and become regulars even. Good on them! :)

    Ross Noble is a familiar name and face down here, too. As is Kara Tointon (to me, anyway)....I was a regular viewer of "Mr. Selfridge" and "The Halcyon", both of which she was in. I've never ever watched "EastEnders", though.

    1. For twenty five years I was a big fan of EastEnders but one day I just switched off my addiction. "Keeping Up With the Yorkies" sounds like a great idea for a new TV programme. I wonder if I will be allowed to fart when the camera is rolling.

    2. That stopped me in my tracks! You watched EastEnders for 25 years! I had to endure it for 25 minutes once and vowed never again.

    3. I watched the very first episode with my baby son on my knee and was hooked. Often there were great scripts and great acting performances.

  9. Wonderful. You must be so proud of him.

    1. Yes we are Briony. It is an exciting journey. Very different from the usual 9 to 5 thing but I still worry -
      in case the bubble bursts.

  10. Yes, you have every right to be a proud Papa.

  11. Congrats to you and Ian and Henry! Did Ian exclaim "Bosh!" after eating the Sudocrem?

    1. No - but I exclaimed something else beginning with an "s" and ending with a "t"!

  12. I love Bosh! They have worked very, very hard this past year. However, Amazon says that they will not have the book until May. I was hoping to get our copies before my daughter's birthday in April. Oh, well. Logistics and all that.

    1. Ian and Henry are confident that the book will be launched in April but that might be in England first of all. Thanks for your support PT.

  13. I'm glad it went well, aside from the cupcakes it seems :)

    You can change a baby but you can't do laundry! That seems illogical!
