The thing about us Gardners is that we're good with our hands. Amelie can make orange horses out of plasticine...

Britain's Next Top Modeller
... and I can put up shelves that are almost level...

On the Shelf
Unfortunately, we're not so good with our memories. Despite being interviewed by the police for half an hour on Monday night (which is why my DIY plans had to be shelved until yesterday), I forgot to mention that I witnessed a robbery on Sunday. And not just when Lisa stole my thunder by telling Amelie about my Winnie the Pooh biscuit-cutters.

I took Amelie down to the marina on Sunday afternoon for a bit of retail therapy at the discount bookshop. On the way, we popped into Asda, where I decided to help her towards the title of Britain's Next Top Modeller by getting her some plasticine. It was only a pound, which I thought was pretty cheap, until we walked on through the marina and found a way of getting quality goods for free.

We were crossing the road near Subway (mainly because there isn't one), when I looked up to see a man sprinting towards us from the direction of the Calvin Klein store. For a moment I panicked, thinking there must be a car coming, but having realised there wasn't, and then clocked the two members of staff running after him, and the bundle of clothes in his arms, I deduced that there might be some kind of crime afoot.

I'd have given chase, but I had Amelie on my shoulders at the time, which is equivalent to the weight of the world, and I struggle to get up kerbs, never mind chase thieves, so instead I stood and watched him reap the rewards of his efforts by sprinting off past the Harvester. I did feel a bit sorry for the hapless shop assistants, but let's face it, if you've seen the prices in the Calvin Klein store, you'll know they're used to daylight robbery.

You need one of Amelie's little balls to test shelves.  We use them all the time as spirit levels.

I trust Am immediately made a plasticine identikit model of the thief's face, to assist the police in their enquiries.

Three: Answer questions but also ask your own - Don't be afraid
to ask your own questions on top of answering their questions.
