action man

I had to throw the duvet off the bed to get BB up and out canvassing this morning. You have to be tough to be a campaign manager. When I asked him if his mother had to do the same thing to get him up when he was a boy he said yes and that he would lie in sub-zero temperatures rather than go and retrieve it. It was, he told me, a battle of wills and he couldn’t be seen to be giving in. That was when he was 7! At the same age he was using his mum’s sewing machine to make jeep soft-tops and sleeping bags for his action man.

M. Boule De Billard weaved past on his bicycle this afternoon, obviously out on the campaign/pastis trail judging by his riding skills.
