The problem with strapping Toby into his new highchair is that it turns him into a sitting duck. And sooner or later, ducks get shot. If not with guns, then with cameras...

I came home from Burgess Hill yesterday to find that photo on my memory card. The glasses belong to my mother-in-law, the photography's by Lisa, but I'm sensing that the styling was all down to Amelie. He looks like Edna Mode from The Incredibles.

Or he will do once his sister gets her hands on a wig.

Anyhoo, Burgess Hill is fast becoming my favourite place to do a clinic. Which is a shame, as I'm only working there one more time before December. I enjoyed another thrifty lunchtime special at the Jacob's Post pub yesterday, whilst chatting to the people's favourite for election to the town council in 2015. He offered me the chance to interview Chas from Chas & Dave for the BHU website (he's got far bigger fish to fry himself), but having considered the offer, I felt I lacked both the shorthand skills and the necessary bugging equipment, and besides, I'm holding out for Renée from Renée & Renato.

Unfortunately, while I was breezing through the day with a spring in my step, a song in my heart, and some cheap chicken tikka masala in my stomach (I'm back on the diet tomorrow), it seems I was being observed from afar with the kind of bare-faced ageism I thought had died with Jimmy Savile.

Word reached me this afternoon that a patient at Burgess Hill had told my colleague who was there today that it was nice to see a young man doing the job. When he replied that he's not really that young, she told him she'd been at the health centre for another reason yesterday, and there was a "much older man" doing it then.

The sad thing is that we're supposed to be saving sight, but she's clearly as blind as a bat.

Oh dear, that's quite worrying!  And poor Toby will soon be as blind as a bat too, if Amelie keeps putting somebody else's glasses on him.

I know new things get a deal of attention, but is Toby in his new high chair all the time?
As for being judged oder than your years, well I was in the sauna on Wednesday when a man told me that if I was an OAP a membership card for the year was only £40. It certainly made me feel it.

It's a good way of keeping Toby out of mischief - or it may just be that he likes his food!

Toby looks like Harold Bishop with those glasses on.

Scarily - he really does.

I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today,
yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made
good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
