We are currently delivering 2009 calendars that include key contact phone numbers for local services and also websites. Needless to say it does include a picture of me ... and then this appeared in my inbox.
"I am writing to thank you for the calendar which has just been delivered to my house. It shows great innovative thinking not shown by the local Conservatives in many years. Well designed, well produced and exremely impressive. I am sure a lot of my neighbours will be pleased and it demonstrates how seriously you are taking this area for the next election."
So far, so good ... we are impressive, serious and innovative ... and he goes on ...
"The only trouble is that I cannot possible look at you for the next year and so have sliced your picture off the side of the calendar."
Lovely. I might be the serious choice to replace Charles Clarke but not apprently fabulous enought to adorn a noticeboard for a whole year.
This made me laugh - but Louise laughed longer and louder!
