Well, with my thoughts on that out of the way, on with the observation of the day. I just popped into Safeway in Walsall to get a few essentials (Turkish Delight and Cake) and was amused to see how half-term has influenced confectionery sales - at the checkout next to me was a poor harassed dad who had the delightful pleasure of taking his brood shopping. The contents of his trolley said it all - sweets, chocolate, sweets, more sweets - oh and a baguette. Perfect balanced diet.
Dentists must be rubbing their hands in glee!
