I'll be keeping an eye on the post. I owe you one, Independent. Especially for calling me 'young'.

Even if you weren't so generous the day before.

Perhaps now keener than ever to prove to those uncharitable critics that she isn't merely a short-tempered bossy boots with the kind of socially awkward husband you traditionally try to avoid at barbecues, the Yvette charm offensive now goes into overdrive.

Don't get your hopes up. I'm no Cameron.

How are the children? Suitably sated by chocolate yet?
Yvette: hey yvettecoopertrooper on April 24th, 2011 12:31 pm (UTC)
I'm sure they could keep going all day. I'm sure they will. There is chocolate absolutely everywhere.

What?! Aw, no fair. Journos never get me anything.

See what a casual mention on twitter can do for you, darling?
Yvette: smiley yvettecoopertrooper on April 25th, 2011 10:50 pm (UTC)
Thanks, love *kisses cheek*

I'd better warn you now. This song is going to be on repeat for a few days.

You can thank me by getting your own twitter account. Then you can tweet things at Simeon Jackson and get him to sign a shirt for me after that spectacular finale.

Look, as long as you do the dance, it's fine with me.
Yvette: conference yvettecoopertrooper on April 25th, 2011 11:00 pm (UTC)
Not a chance. Twitter is far too personal.

Anyway, you make enough noise about Norwich City without needing me to get the attention for you.
Ed Balls MP: cooking is greatontheballscity on April 25th, 2011 11:09 pm (UTC)
It'll get you eventually.

Tell me about it; I scared half the train punching the air. It's nice to see you again though. With you doorstepping and me being sent up to Scotland, it's hardly been much of an Easter break. And I've finished all the chocolate already...
Yvettecoopertrooper on April 25th, 2011 11:19 pm (UTC)
Yes, you finished the children's chocolate too. But it did save them being too much more hyperactive than normal.

Only a week and a bit more to go listening to old ladies complaining about 'the youth on the street'. There's nothing like election time.

What?!

Oh, oh fuck it. I've got to stop gorging. Ah well, can't be helped. And it was worth it.

Hmm. So, decided where to go on our Summer hols yet? Any countries particularly stand out during your brief stint in the Foreign Office?
Yvette: hey yvettecoopertrooper on April 25th, 2011 11:37 pm (UTC)
*pats belly* You have put on a bit, dear.

Um, Tunisia stood out. But they haven't completely sorted out their politics yet.
Ed Balls MP: hate ties hate tiesontheballscity on April 25th, 2011 11:41 pm (UTC)
I meant standing out for the beautiful scenery and places we can safely dump the kids on the beach rather than shaky democracy.

I 'aven't. Look, I'm as trim as I ever was.

*Struggles up and out of the sofa*

*Bends stomach and scowls into mirror*

...Alright, maybe just a tad.
Yvettecoopertrooper on April 25th, 2011 11:48 pm (UTC)
I don't know. Foreign affairs tends to put you off other countries more than anything. Have you got any ideas?

...It's probably the stress of the job, dear.
Ed Balls MP: Fuckin' Brilliantontheballscity on April 25th, 2011 11:52 pm (UTC)
I don't care, love. Just somewhere with sun and lager and Sky Sports.

*Scowls at self in mirror*

How come tea-boy's lost weight if it's stress, then? He's well stressed. I should know, I keep setting fire to his pot plants.
Yvette: conference yvettecoopertrooper on April 25th, 2011 11:59 pm (UTC)
Sun and lager and Sky Sports? You might as well put the TV in the garden, especially if the weather stays like this.

Has he? He's probably under pressure from his publicity people to look...I don't know, like Cameron and Clegg.

For the last time, setting his plants on fire isn't going to get you control over the economy.
Ed Balls MP: Fuckin' Brilliantontheballscity on April 26th, 2011 12:11 am (UTC)
Well, sun, lager, Sky Sports and an ocean between us and Parliament, then. It's bad enough the economy's bound to tank or we'll have a police strike bang at the start of the trip. At least we can enjoy what little holiday we'll have.

Hmph. Will I have to start looking like Osborne then? Should I pick you up a pair of leopard print stilettos?

It's mostly habit now. I think he'd miss it if I stopped.
Yvettecoopertrooper on April 26th, 2011 12:19 am (UTC)
You'd better not. If I wanted a economically-incompetent toff who either looks like he's paralysed or smelling something terrible, I would have married one.

I'm not saying no to stilettos. Just leopard-print ones.

I don't like seeing Ed Miliband upset. He may be hopeless, but he's still my friend.
