[Error: unknown template qotd]One of my class brought a big tin of Cadbury's chocolates into school, this morning, saying she wanted to hand them out for Easter (we finish on Friday). I said that I hoped there was one for me and as she handed me the tin, I KNEW I'd been had before I even touched it! My lust for chocolate beat me.

She caught lots of teachers out this morning and she was thrilled to bits!

This happened to my husband this morning while I was at work:

We have a narrow stream running along the bottom boundary of our back garden. Gavin has strengthened the bank and has a workshop/shed running the full width of the garden, hence the stream is hidden from view. He checks it regularly and noticed a huge tree trunk blocking the stream. It had been cut down upstream and had floated along until it had become jammed just behind his shed. He had been in touch with the Environmental Agency and they have been out to inspect it.

Today he received a phonecall, explaining that the trunk will be removed but that the lifting equipment needed to remove this trunk, estimated at up to half a ton, is large and requires access. He was told that his workshop needs to be dismantled and moved 2 metres into the garden. Apparently, he tried to keep his cool but the official he was talking to was insisting that the lifting machine needed the space. Eventually, he was told that a Manager would ring him back. By this time he was quite irritated to put it mildly.

He went outside to recount the conversation to any of our neighbours who might be around to listen. Many of them are retired and are often at the front in their gardens. Soon he had 3 or 4 people listening and commiserating. Then the neighbour from three doors away came to listen. He couldn't keep his face straight for long. "It's April the first, Gavin," and then the penny dropped. Gavin had been the victim of a joke perpetrated by that 'friend'! Much laughter at Gavin's expense but he was relieved that his beloved shed is safe.

Needless to say, he is plotting revenge.
