....at least one
very famous friend.
....at least one very wealthy patron.
....at least one new adventure a week.
....a circle of forgiving colleagues, relatives, friends and
loved ones prepared to overlook your inadvertent indiscretions
and unintentional insults delivered with the very best will
in the world.
.... an understanding bank manager who appreciates the importance
of frequent holidays, and the necessity of living way beyond
....a long-suffering partner who is not afraid to live life
in the fast lane – or on the sidelines of a hockey pitch
or the stands of a polo match.
.... a petrol-guzzling, totally impractical, outrageously
expensive, dangerously fast car.
