trials and tribulations of eclectic chicken

I sold my soul to the devil…. February 19, 2010

…or so my Guardian reading chums would have me believe as earlier this week Jane and I went to meet Helen Weathers who writes for the Mail.

Not a decision flippantly made….but made it we did. In my case becuase

a) I’m a closet occassional Mail reader (yeah yeah…how many outings can a girl squeeze into a blog),

b)Ms Weathers writes good stuff…good positive touchy feely stuff,

c) its a chance to get a piece on trans into a major paper…even if its not totally positive it’ll be a story about a  couple (us) staying together…and that in my books is as positive as it needs to be…anything else is a bonus.

Oh and

d)it means i can now buy my girl an engagement ring.

The interview wasn’t as scary as i thought and i didn’t blub quite as much as i feared i would (i’m getting better at that…the shock must be wearing off) and we had the added bonus (?) of a professional make-over of hair and make-up for us both;  making me (they said) look more like a Mail reader and less like a ‘rock chick’ (the photographer really had a way with words).

The finishing touch to my conversion to middle England involved hiding my cleavage 🙂

So look out in the Mail tomorrow.
