Further details

This week Simon finally decides that enough is enough. His stop gap at Heathcote Sanders has turned into a 5 year stop gulf and he needs to get motivated and leave so he sits down at his electronic keyboard for the start of a new era. The trouble is that Simon realises that self-motivation isn't as easy as he'd though and to make life even more difficult his mother decides to get a job at Heathcote Sanders. As Judith eloquently puts it, to have one member of the family working in the arms trade may be regarded as misfortune, to have two looks like genetic wickedness.
