    Fell down a few stairs earlier. Hurt my left shoulder, wrist and knee and all the toes on right foot and bumped my back. Not badly, just enough to know it'll all be sore tomorrow. Serves me right for coming down in the dark!

    You need to take more care Geoff - none of us are as young as we once were.

    I tripped over a pile of books, fell awkwardly and 'ricked' my neck. It took me six months to fully recover.

    Almost a manhunt

    Police in the US are searching for four monkeys that escaped after a truck carrying 100 of them was involved in a crash.

    The trailer, which was carrying the monkeys to a laboratory in Florida, collided with a dump truck on a motorway in Pennsylvania.

    No-one was hurt, but some monkeys managed to escape.

    Two have been located, but the authorities are still trying to catch them, the New York Times reports.

    Two others remain on the run

    ESCAPE!!

    A robot vacuum cleaner made a break for freedom after giving staff the slip at a Travelodge hotel.

    The automated cleaner failed to stop at the front door of the hotel in Orchard Park in Cambridge on Thursday, and was still on the loose the following day.

    Staff said it just kept going and "could be anywhere" while well-wishers on social media hoped the vacuum enjoyed its travels, as "it has no natural predators" in the wild.

    It was found under a hedge on Friday.

    An unnamed source said it may be some time before we get them back, as we all know that it is best to adopt the "slowly slowly catchy monkey" approach

    The electric sunroof of my car became 'self aware' the other day. Came back from doing a bit of shopping and noticed that the rear was tilted up. It was not like that when I parked the car (or not that I had noticed), but when I unlocked the car and got in to shut the sunroof, none of it's controls worked - all I got was a clicking sound from the mechanism but no movement.

    Now I had had the battery replaced about 20 months ago, and in doing so the car had to be 'told' that the battery was new so all the car settings would remain. Thinking the same might have to be done to sort out the sunroof, I took the car to my local friendly garage to get it sorted out. They thought all it might need is 'resetting', so I left it with them only to be told about an hour later that there was nothing wrong with it and the sunroof was working perfectly.

    Since they hadn't done anything there was no charge; apart from me feeling a bit of a fraud and somewhat foolish in having wasted their time!
