Mrs Brown found a pullover in the shop she called at with her daughter on her way to the party. As soon as she had paid for the pullover she saw that Jean had chocolate all over her face and hands. Furious she asked a sales as­sistant where the toilets were. Then in the toilet Mrs Brown changed Jean's old pullover for the new one.
