The week before the half-term holiday he sent a set of children's activity sheets and posters to every library in the borough. And as per usual the set that went upstairs to the lending library went straight into the office and have remained there all week.
He confronted the lending library's librarians about it.
"Oh well. Maybelle's been on leave most of this week," they said. "She should have done it when she was in on Tuesday."
I've suggested that come Xmas he doesn't bother sending anything upstairs and that he should wait and see if they bleat about it.
