It's me 'n' Am on the pier!

Pier Pressure
Amelie's looking for starlings in the roof of her buggy.

That photo was actually taken on Sunday, back in those lazy, carefree days before I found out that everyone's still off work, and I'd have to do all the pharmacy driving this week. I'm now so knackered that if I crouched down for a photo, I'd never get up again.

But if there's one thing guaranteed to keep me going through the working day, it's the staff noticeboard on the NHS intranet. It never fails to entertain. Someone was trying to hire out a horse last week. And no, it wasn't a typo. But yesterday the quality of advert reached an all-time high with this golden opportunity:

Flashing Santa For Sale - 5 Pounds
Wiggles about, sings then flashes underpants which say Happy Xmas or similar; I haven't really looked. You will love it or hate it, I will chuck it in a skip next week.

Which I thought was the best I'd ever seen. Until I read this one:

Incredible Dancing Duck For Sale - 4 Pounds
This is torture, ideal gift for someone you really despise. It flaps and waddles about, plays the Birdie Song and when you pick it up makes strangulation noises. Plus side: it has an off switch.

And to think I normally struggle to find a gift for Lisa's Mum.

You two could make an advert for Iams cat food!

Well I'd start by sacking Leslie Phillips.

I trust that, rather than pay a fiver, you'll be checking the nearest skip next week.

I don't get those first 2 comments! 
But at least I did my bit last night, for your exhaustion, by teaching Amelie how to sleep all night!

I think *I* was the one who taught Amelie to sleep through the night. I did it before I went to bed at 8:30pm. :+:
