Last week I met Dolly in the hall, armed with half a dozen bottles of brightly coloured nail polish. 'Where are you going with that?' I asked. 'I'm just going out to paint my snails' she replied.
No, it's not a typo.
Apparently some CBBC programme said if you painted snails in your garden with nail polish you could keep track of them better. So she did.
So, if you see a snail with bright red or glittery pink nail polish ... please take care of it; it's more than likely one of ours!
