The girls:

Thing 2 came home with a leaf and told me that she picked it up because it was green and round and she thought it was just like me. I said, "What, green and round?" She laughed and said, "No! Agile." Well, okay then.

Thing 1 has missed the bus coming home so many times this year that if the phone rings at a certain time, I know it's Betsy from the office calling to tell me it's happened again. Our conversations have gotten much shorter. It's now down to:

Me: Hello
Betsy: Hey, it's Betsy.
Me: I'll be there in a few minutes.

It helps move things along and Betsy thinks it's hilarious.

A group of people dressed as Batman, Robin, David Hasselhoff and a Smurf helped police officers catch a criminal in an East Lothian supermarket.

A man dressed as Robin was on Eskview Road in Musselburgh when he was assaulted just before 20:00 on Friday.

He and his friends, who were all in fancy dress, called police before chasing the attacker into Tesco.

After a scuffle in the toilet roll aisle, a 21-year-old man was arrested. He later pled guilty in court.
'Sorry Tesco'

The incident came to light after East Lothian Police tweeted about it, thanking the fancy-dressed group for their help.

One Tweet read: "Thank you to Batman, Robin, Robin's Dad, a Smurf, and the Hoff for helping us on Friday night. #Tesco, sorry about the toilet roll aisle."

Another Tweet by police officers in East Lothian read: "Robin assaulted, police called, collective assisted our foot chase, minor upset to shelving in Tescos during arrest, you couldn't script it!"

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "A 21-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with an assault in Eskview Road, Musselburgh, on Friday 1 November.

"He was remanded in custody until Monday 4th November, where he appeared in court and pled guilty to the offence."
