I stopped a wee bit early today. My shoulder is loupin’, the wind and rain were no fun on the roof as I fannied about with the pipework up there, and, I just couldn’t be arsed frankly.
So, I said to Holly did she want to see if the Amy Pond figure was in the shop? There was just enough time to nip out and have a look. “Wes!” was the reply.
True enough, although Forbidden Planet was sold out, Amy Pond was hanging in good numbers on A1 Comics’ rack in Braehead. Holly clutched one with much excitement and both hands as dad scanned the other wee folk in the same rack area. There’s the olive drab dalek with the ammo pouches and water bottle… “Would you like some tea?” it had said to the Doctor. It’s sitting in front of me as I write this, and I keep flicking my eyes up to it to see if it’s going to aske me the same question. Hey, you never know.
