'Well that is me down the job centre,' said Camille.
'Oh, I don't know,' said Norma reassuringly, 'Anne'll be fine...and I've sent Geraldine on ahead to keep an eye on Cyril.'
'Right,' replied Camille, 'so you've sent like one tiny, tiny penguin to try to control a bovine who is the size of a small house?'
'I like pengimings!' said Annie.
And Camille decided that the easiest thing to do was to ring the bell and get things over with as quickly as possible.
