Posted on my Facebook page..

I was driving my lorry back to the UK from France when I was stopped by a customs officer.

"Are you carrying anything on board that you shouldn't be?" he asked.

"No," I replied.

"Right," he said, "So you don't have any cigarettes?"

"No," I replied again, as he opened the shutter.

"What about these?" he said, smiling at me.

"I'm not sure," I replied, staring at the 120 illegal immigrants in the back, "Do any of you have cigarettes?"

While we were out last night, half a tree fell down, luckily missing both our cars, but blocking them in our drive. I called the city tree services and left a message at 11pm last night, and at 7.45 this morning they turned up to clear the tree. Impressed

Why are you happy about that - they took away your excuse for not having to go into work today
