1. I am wearing the best and the softest thermal socks ever, and I'm damned if my day is going to be spoiled by leaking boots. Out comes the hairdryer.
2. We go down to the fish and chip shop. Most of the people queuing have Good Friday 20 per cent off vouchers curled in their hands. Those without say "Yes please" and "Cheers mate" to anyone offering up their un-used 10 per cent off in April vouchers.
3. Still queuing at Downtown Fishbar. "Your usual, Peter?" "Yes please."
