It's a well known fact that I basically just write this blog to get freebies. And hate mail. But mostly freebies. Over the past year, I've successfully claimed ownership of hand-made chocolates, chewy sweets, retro mugs and a ball & chain, all thanks to the charismatic pulling power (and shameless desperation) evident in these words. I'm essentially a one-man charity case.

And now, like all good charities, I've got people out there on the streets, mugging strangers for me, and persuading them to hand over stuff for a good cause. I found out this morning that after writing about Amelie's Easter Egg Hunt on this blog last month, my Dad e-mailed Lindt's master chocolatiers with a link to that video, in the hope that they might be amused by the news that Amelie thinks their luxury gold bunny looks like a vicious reptile.

Personally I'd have anticipated another cease and desist order, but it seems not. This morning a parcel arrived from Lindt with a thank you letter, some chocolate bunnies and - most impressive of all - this...

See you later, alligator.
IT'S A CUDDLY CROCODILE!!!

I might see if I can get a sledge out of Shelley Rudman.

I have an exercise machine you can have back, Lisa, if you're really keen on the slimline idea!  I'm not sure if it picks up the dust though.

It would do if it was in this flat.
