Amelie looked at me just before she went to bed tonight and said "Daddy, your eyes are red."

She's not wrong. I couldn't be more tired if I'd just sailed naked across the Atlantic in a pedalo. Suffice it to say, it's been a busy week so far, but the good news is that I've worked so much extra time, I can go in late tomorrow morning. If I manage to get up at all.

But in addition to diagnosing sleep deprivation in the eyes of her father, Amelie's also displayed a keen insight into her own character this evening. I picked her up from nursery in the car after work, and as we were driving home, she said to me "This car used to belong to Grandma and Grandad". Which is true, but something I didn't realise she was aware of. I actually bought it from my parents three years ago, when Amelie was less than four months old, so I don't really expect her to remember.

So having been impressed with her intimate knowledge of my vehicle, I asked her "How do you know that?"

She replied "I'm very special, that's how."

I'm not saying I disagree, but I bet my Mum told her.

I never did!!  I'm sure we've never had any discussions about the previous ownership of your car, so you'll have to accept she's just very special!

Put Hydrochloric Acid drops in your eyes (as I have been for the last 4 weeks).  Works wonders.

Here's what the first entry in Google says: "
Hydrochloric acid is a strong acid and very corrosive".    Do you know someone who sells white sticks?!

And here's the winning entry for one-liners:   “ – that’s a site for sore eyes”

But I thought Paul Daniels entry was better - 
 I said to this fella ‘Is there a B&Q in Henley?’ He said “No, there’s an H, an E, an N, and L and a Y’
