The paperwork never ends

Never has the printer and scanner been so well used.

I wonder if in Colonial times people just got on a boat, got off and that was that. Is the world any better or different for all out bit of paper, ID cards, contracts, visas - surely it is just a ruse to keep us busy and keep people employed.

I keep meaning to blog about things I see or hear in London but frankly, unless I write it down, it's gone, gone, gone.

The only funny thing is that I tell people I am moving to Africa and they do act like it's Joseph Conrad's time or something- a mix of fear, admiration and "you're clearly bonkers".. although some people look at the tube and sigh - lucky you.
