A bird I spent the night with yesterday got out of her pram with me when she saw me stacking the washing powder shelves in Asda today. "You told me you you were a daredevil pilot," she said. "No," I answered, " I told you I was part of an Ariel display team." What's up with women these days? I'd have thought she'd have have been proud of me for knocking off half a dozen packets of it on her behalf.
