1. Dipping my croissant in my coffee.
2. At Christmas, there was much debate in the office about the suitability of the secret Santa gift I proposed for the new girl in the room next door. It was a pair of pretty knickers from Accessorize. I met up with the old crew last night, and she raved about them, saying they were her favourites ever and that she showed them to everyone (!). I turned to He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named: 'I told you so.' He shook his head: 'Still weird.'
3. He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named has just got back from a round-the-world trip. He seems to have enjoyed himself: highlights included stalking a penguin, vegetarian food in Hong Kong and being surprised at how full his cutlery drawer was when he got home.
