1. The first conker of the year, rescued from under my wheel as I parked in the supermarket car park this morning.

2. The jubilee clip which fell apart, allowing a hose in my car engine to come loose and discharge a radiator full of water a quarter of a mile from home this morning.

3. (not shown)  Me, a  "damsel in distress" (his words, not mine) by a kind young man who followed my steaming car, diagnosed the cause, repaired it and insisted on following  home to make sure it was ok.  One of those rare, genuine and generous people who go out of their way for others.

Being creative?
