Nurse! Get me a length of string and a doorknob

It's National Bookstart Day this week so we've quite a lot of stuff on for the tiny tots in our libraries. Just like normal, really, as that's the one area of our work that's got a ton-and-a-half of national projects providing resources, cajolings, bullyings and the like and we'd be too weak to resist even if we were much inclined to do so. Just to gild the lily, Frog's arranged for somebody to come to Helminthdale Central to do a couple of extra Stories & Songs sessions later this week.

Today, Frog's had a full day doing school visits and I'm not overly sure he's managed to get his breath back from all the Poetry In The Park stuff the other week: he looks a bit rough. So I could understand his not being entirely impressed by Lola's greeting on his return:
"We've not had any notices sent to us for those Stories & Songs sessions."

"Well, it is an event at your library. You might want to do some yourself."

The energetically enthusiastic response prompted Frog to take his coat back off and start doing a notice, if only to cover his back for when there are complaints to T.Aldous about the lack of publicity upstairs. I offered to do it for him so's he could make his planned escape for the evening.
"Oh no: I want to be properly annoyed by this one."

"Oh no: I want to be properly annoyed by this one." Absolutely. There's nothing worse than those people who constantly keep one in a state of only half-annoyance, so you end up thinking it's normal.
