Is it my turn?

I think I’m due a blog post.

We’ve finally had a full weekend to enjoy. Finishing the magazine early meant we got last Saturday off: two lie-ins. Bank holiday weekend meant Monday off: three lie-ins. We’ll get four lie-ins next week the way things are going.

Right? Right?

No.

A weekend is never quite a weekend in this world. And a day is never quite over when you leave the office at 5.30pm.

Besides the work for our placement titles, we’ve had to sell out (content for marketing), prematurely kill (obituary) and become professional scoffers (film/book/gig review). We’ve taken on the [media] law and are [shorthand] artists in our own right.


It’s a varied job this journalism thing.
