With so much doom and gloom in the news these days, it is rather nice when you hear something that makes you chuckle.
This was the case this morning as I was listening to Classic FM's 'news on the hour'. After the usual stock market and other depressing pieces, came a teeny shining light when the newsman announced: 'Top Army Chief bought in to top job'.
Now I wonder just from where he was bought? Harrods? Selfridges? Sainsburys? Marks & Spencers? Or a little chic boutique catering very much for the 'person who has everything'? The possibilities are endless.
So when you next go shopping, look out for the Special Offer: 'Buy one Army Colonel get a Sergeant free'.
