Overheard in the Office

'There are two things that are the enemy of rock n' roll. Children and sailing.'

Last weekend my nine year old and eleven year old nieces were staying with their mother.

Eleven: 'In the car on the way up Mummy was asking how we'd describe you to a police officer.' (I chose to not think about that question too deeply).

Me: 'And...?'

Eleven: 'Short....sorry Kate but you are, blonde curly hair and....CRAZY!'

Me: 'Crazy?!'

Eleven: 'Nine said that!'

Some time later I said to Nine: 'So I hear that Mummy asked you guys how you'd explain me to a police officer?'

Nine: 'Yes!'

Me: 'And?'

Nine: 'Short, blonde curly hair that goes down between your top lip and your chin, with mousey ringlets and crazy.'

Me: 'Crazy?!'

Nine: 'Eleven said that!'

I don't know whether to feel proud or short.

Move Over Holden, Lamborghini is in the House.

You know things are going okay in your country when they up-spec the police car fleet to Lamborghinis.

Apparently that's the go in Dubai. I read the article and thought it was an April Fool's joke.
Apparently not. 

However I then read further...only to discover apparently so. 

It wasn't an April Fool's joke but that a Lamborghini police car had featured in a recently made film shot in Dubai.

So, story not as good as it started out but, regardless, you're always going to liven up a sentence when it contains the words 'police car' AND 'Lamborghini'.

Mental Note to Self....

After indulging in a merry spot of Easter bag snatching, when you making your getaway, best make sure the glass door is open.

I'm picking that man will be suffering from more than a sugar low this morning.
