The crew and passengers resigned themselves to yet another long delay at Springfield Junction. Mary and Millicent, the "Superglue Twins", had struck again.

Sir Gerald Wheel-Barrow MP, Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Transportation, thought he had finally solved the problem of street congestion during the school-run ... until Beatrice-Mary (aged 6) pointed out that Papa would still have to hire another carriage-and-four to get him onwards to Parliament.

There was something about his new Afghan coat which wasn't quite right, Boris knew. But the day was still young, he reckoned. He'd figure it out ... he just needed time.

Nothing at baby Orville's christening hinted that either he or 4-year-old brother Wilbur came from anything other than an ordinary Mid-Western family with their feet firmly planted on the ground.

Aeschylus wasn't really a good choice for a village hall production, but the kids liked seeing the panto horse again.

They should put some whiskey in these cups Liz. If we have to wear these ridiculous costumes, the least they could do is let us be drunk whilst doing it.

Pappa, mother says she's sorry and that maybe Nobby Stiles was indeed the most underrated left-sided off-field philosopher in football history. But while you're in there anyway, she says, can you see if you can find whatever's blocking the loo?

Of course, you don't have to drink your tea out of the saucer like Michael here but you can benefit from having your very own xT2 teaMaker. It simultaneously dispenses Indian, Russian and China tea all from one easy-to-use samovar.

The xT2 is not available in any shops. To order yours and take advantage of our limited offer (including 6 months' supply of tea of your choice) just dial our FREEFONE number. Hurry while stocks last.

As a terror-stricken Doctor Witherspoon listened intently for the sound of its imminent return, Lord Fortheringay realised yet again how much he bitterly detested the ancient family tradition of the Saturday afternoon ostrich stampede through Fotheringay Hall.
