I seem to start every post on this blog these days with a mumbling apology about how it’s been quiet but there’s a load of stuff coming. Thing is, as I’m sure you beautiful Alright Titters have noticed, loads of stuff is coming.
On March 30, me and the effervescent @wardotron travelled down to London to watch a first screening of “The C-Word”, hanging with all Lisa’s friends and family, the producers, the cast, Paul Nicholls (nice job sir by the way), and of course my new big-time crush, the bloody ace Sheridan Smith, who, for the record, has absolutely NAILED it – it felt like we had the old bird back for two hours, swears, Louboutins, the lot.
As well as it being a wonderful, if sometimes tough night, getting to watch it all on a big screen surrounded by Lisa’s groovy entourage took away my fears. I’d convinced myself that I wasn’t going to be able to get through watching it, and if I’d been watching for the first time on the sofa at home between Netflix marathons, maybe I wouldn’t.
Still, I didn’t have to. Instead I got two hours of bittersweet joy and being immensely proud of our overachieving bird. Oh, and I got a hug from Sheridan too, which means I am now better than you.
That was all a couple of weeks ago and now things are starting to get thrilling/squeaky-bum-nerve-wracking. Last night the first trailer screened right after “Casualty”, and the new edition of “The C-Word” is about to hit the shelves (here’s an exclusive peek at the new book cover by the way).
This blog gets a serious plug throughout the drama (of course), and we’re going to slap a bit of paint about for all the new visitors I suspect it will get, so stay tuned.

Big love to all you ‘Tit followers, old and new.
