In-trays and postcards

Here's a good one for everyone in England enjoying the postal strike.

Debs heard a thing on Radio 4 a few months ago which told a wonderful story about a man who would go to work in the morning, check the contents of his in-tray (probably while smoking a pipe), and then, having gauged the amount of work he had to do that day, send a postcard to his wife letting her know what time he would be home for tea.

How very civilized.

But for all that we have lost... how much we have gained :-)
