Clarence woke me early. My clothes had been laid out for me and my executive trolley-case had already been loaded into the jalopy. The drive had been swept and I mused on the dedication of my domestic and estate staff as I hit the empty roads before dawn.
Time seemed to flash by and before I knew it I was sitting in Worcester enjoying a coffee and catching up with the progress that had been made in my absence. Notwithstanding the fact that this had not been as great as I had hoped the staff were eager to please.
