Every time the cuckoo on the cuckoo clock cuckoos Beauty has to use the toilet.
Beauty is fascinated with the clock and many times has been found standing on the kitchen table waiting for him to cuckoo so I decided to use him to help in toilet training. Each time she goes to the toilet I make her read a book (a short book not War and Peace!) and then she can get up, flush the toilet and wash and dry her hands. No luck yet but she is willing to participate so that is a good start.
Think of all those 'DEAD' backpacks that I came across in my children's bedrooms when they were growing up, I should have saved them for a museum!

The fruit belonged to Joseph Roberts who was injured in an explosion at a Stoke-on-Trent colliery in 1891.
It had been kept by his family but has been donated to the Potteries Museum.
