Good news and bad news.

Good News:
Thanks to Grasshopper’s resident newspaper hack Babs my 2 PAGE piece ran in The Daily Mail this week and we discovered that the whole World seems to read the Daily Mail.

Bad News:
They ran the chubby Anthea shots and people now think we have our meetings in full make-up perched on the work surface of my kitchen.

More Good News:
We received about 300 emails overnight and in true Grasshopper fashion they were pretty far out. From Finnish felt-makers to ladies knitting tea cosies from kelp in the Outer Hebrides they have all been in touch to let us know that our catalogue of incompetence has inspired them to give up their day job and make felt/ weave kelp full time.

We are so grateful to Babs for taking time out of her busy schedule unearthing sex scandals and interviewing cannibals to get this published, we couldn’t have done it without her.


PS Grasshopper mum would like to point out that I didn’t go to Kings and in fact went to UCL which is consistently several points above Kings in The Times ratings, not that it matters, but that it was definitely UCL and that I did a really hard course that there's only like 6 places on each year.
