Meanwhile, we're already booking a place at a fascinating conference for which an invite has just arrived: the 1999 Public Toilet Seminar.

A flushed press release promises "The Great British Toilet Revolution has begun" and says it will include the launch of the New British Toilet Association and (trumpets sound) of the 1999 Cannon Hygiene Loo of the Year Awards.

It even has an MP - Julie Morgan (Lab, Cardiff North), wife of Rhodri, whose main impact since her election in 1997 has been to campaign about the lack of ladies' loos in Westminster.

She'll be updating her plans for public toilet legislation. It's a must for all those responsible for public or "away from home" toilets.

Not sure why The TES has been invited - perhaps because schools have loos; or maybe we fit into this category in the "who should attend" list: "toilet users."

It's in Birmingham in May. Can't wait to see the facilities.
