Quick! Buy a new kettle and a lemon without pips!
If you are the Office Manager or the Intern at West Kent Towers and a mischievous parliamentary candidate phones at 11.30am to tell you a "very very significant" VIP will be arriving, en route to a press conference in Medway, and he will need to use a desk for 30 minutes - be very suspicious.
At 11.30am today this is just what happened.
"Matt... run over the Waitrose and buy a box of Lapsang Souchong and a pip-less-lemon. Jon - quickly, clean the lavatory and Hoover the floor."
Matt, thoughtfully remembered that our kettle was broken - so he bought a new one of those, too.
Moral of story - when someone calls and tells you to go to Waitrose in search of Lapsang Souchong and a pip-less lemon, make sure it isn't the Wednesday 1st April.
