Subtly put a bottle of Femfresh in their bag. Worked wonders for me. 8)

Which reminds me of a woman on the train last week who was talking about how she was eating Femfresh when she was trying to say Fromage Frais.

Yep. :oops: Hence the need for a chat about my future here. I've been doing this job 10 years, I wanted to know if there's any way I can expand my role so that it doesn't get stagnant.

We're going to look in to it. The starting point is that I've got to stop letting myself get isolated in my office. Which is probably fair comment.

I hope you remembered to ask for the good stuff, like your own lunar module. I always forgot that sort of thing in those talks. :(
