Kate struggles to forge a relationship with her new partner’s son. Her attempts to bond with the child only serve to traumatise him. As her troubles multiply, Kate begins to wonder if it’s all worth it.

I am Morten Astley Fogarty – call centre worker and all-round entertainer. Although I have an extremely rewarding career answering the phones at Perypils Insurance (customers are always telling me what a total brick I am), my ambition is to perform on the stage. I am, after all, named after two of the greatest singers of the 1980’s. This is my blog!
