My office buddy Paul sneezed this morning.
“Tissue?” I said, proffering a box. “They’re Kleenex!”
He laughed. “I want to show you something,” he said, “that makes me think of you.”
He showed me this:
I laughed a lot.
I put it on Twitter and Bee laughed too.

Also though, I thought it would be a good moment to have a little word about sponsorship. I make my living from my blog, I make no secret of that, and so sometimes I work with brands who want to pay me to talk about them and help them spread the word about a particular product or service, just like they might do in a magazine or newspaper or TV ad.
What I hope though that you also realise is that I turn down all sorts of things because I don’t like the product, or don’t agree with the brand’s ethos, or don’t think it’s relevant to you or because it’s just a LOG THAT SOMEONE HAS FOUND ON THE FLOOR. Whenever I do talk about a brand or a product, it’s because I actually like it, and think you might be interested too. I’m always honest – I won’t tell you something is worth looking at if I think it’s actually a bit shit.
Oh, and my trousers today are from Asda.
