Two weeks ago, James was sat in his back garden eating breakfast when Ralph called. “Would it be possible to come and build a surfboard with you the week after next?” he asked, to which James replied “Of course, no problem at all”. Ralph is a surveyor by profession, and was just coming towards the end of working out a months notice in one job with the strong possibility that he might end up with a spare week before starting his next position with a new company. Not exactly “gardening leave”, it turned out more like “shaping leave”.
