We played a lot of board games and card games when I was small. There was no television to interrupt our fun. One of my favourites was Happy Families with Mr Dose the doctor, Mr Bun the baker, Mr Bone the butcher and so on. Ever since then, I have been on the lookout for people who have names appropriate for their employment. I give a whoop of joy when I come across an electrician called Mr Spark or a teacher called Mrs Chalk.
I have been looking for a local chiropodist/podiatrist to look after the ageing feet and today I couldn't believe my luck when I found Miss Ambler. Her clinic is within easy ambling distance so I have booked an appointment for tomorrow afternoon.
