This week we reached a milestone (or "millstone" as Alan Pardew might say).
It was "Goodbye" to the bagless Dyson vacuum cleaner and "Hello" to a brand new Henry.
Ordinary people on the internet review site were more than happy with their Henry. I know the Dyson is a design classic and all that but Henry sounds like a robust little beast with incredible suction power for his size.
And what do you think of this?
With every new Henry, they're giving away a Henry shopping bag.
Here's Betty modelling it after a visit to the town centre.
As I carried our new Henry shopping bag into Sainsbury's, HMV, Superdrug, and Sussex Stationers, people stopped me and said how much it pleased them to see that cheeky smiling face. Teenagers pointed at me and laughed. Shop assistants said how cute he was.
Now could be the time for me to get into local politics. The Man With The Henry Bag Party. Who could resist me? I could give rides to babies and small dogs, me roller skating up and down the precinct with a baby in my bag. Maybe more than one baby, maybe twins, as you can see there's plenty of room in a Henry bag.
Councillor Geoff has a certain ring to it, doesn't it?
