Amelie and I met comedian, actor and well-known quantum physicist, Ben Miller today. Obviously when I say 'met', I mean 'brushed past in North Street', but it amounts to the same thing. I was pushing an empty buggy while Amelie wandered aimlessly across the pavement eating an apple, and he almost fell over her. I kinda wish he had. I'd like to be sued by a celebrity.

At the time, Ben was heading away from the Theatre Royal, where he's performing with Alexander Armstrong tonight, and towards the classy boutiques of The Lanes. I, on the other hand, was on my way to WHSmiths to buy some gold star stickers for Amelie's potty training reward chart. It's hard to say which of us is leading the more glamorous lifestyle.

That wasn't the only place Amelie and I went though. We also popped in to the Apple shop, which proved to be the most expensive greengrocers I've ever visited, where I bought some earphones for my iPad. Frankly, for a free gift, this thing is costing me a fortune. The good news, however, is that the earphones have a built in microphone, meaning that I can now take advantage of free apps such as 'Dragon Dictation' which will automatically transcribe anything I say, and send it in an e-mail. Thereby allowing me to verbally write blog posts in my car.

When I got home, I tested it on Lisa by asking her what she was doing. She told she was eating a Refresher. My iPad told me she'd had a major fracture. That'll teach her to speak with her mouth full.

Oh dear.  Did you push an empty buggy all afternoon?

Could you encourage Amelie to push the buggie?  You'd almost certainly knock a few celebrities over then.
