Sounds like you inherited my job as Hogarth chief office wallah extrordinaire. Tough at the top as they used to say. Alan Maher was there when I left. Did all the embassies rounds to pickup visas and afternoon collecting tickets from the London bucket shops for John W and Sarah Bear. Did she ever touch you on the ...... ? no that"s another story for the re union. Got to know the backstreets of Soho pretty well and places you could park without gettiing fined or towed away.
Well if it was not so rewarding but at least it was not boring.
And where better to relax after a hard day in the office that the Albany to wash away those troubles and indeed there must have been many troubles to exfoliate.
