On a wander today, I came across a pile of doormats outside a shop door. Talk about walking all over someone when they are down! This gives a whole new meaning to that phrase and cannot be politically correct!

It seems that there is no point relying on your friendly British Consulate in cases of minor domestic crisis abroad. According to the Foreign Secretary, last week, British Embassies do not want to hear from Britons who are struggling to book restaurants, get their jam to set or are overrun with ants. Fortunately inside every cloud there is invariably a silver lining and this time it was for divorce lawyers because Foreign Office staff will refuse to help out all those couples who forget to throw coins in the Trevi Fountain to bring good luck to their marriage; that’s right, they will not throw coins in for you by proxy. If your marriage can’t survive by itself and you overlook the coin throwing, you know who to contact instead!
