Butler dinner guest seeks opinion of Michel Barnier (Rousse)

My parents’ house was so vast that it was hard to keep track of all the family members and visitors staying there.

One morning I was appalled to find a tramp asleep under a brand new duvet in one of the bedrooms in my suite. Then downstairs I discovered a gang of academic staff from Robert Gordon University watching a video of the University of Edinburgh graduation ceremony. Most surprising of all, my youngest sister was at home in a bedroom that was almost tidy.

SM was also in residence, wandering the corridors in a formal outfit that confused everyone. Was he the butler or simply formally dressed (super-early) for dinner? When he asked my opinion of the latest interview with Michel Barnier, I lied that I had slept through it. I was too ashamed to admit that I hadn’t followed a word of the discussion.
