There’s a problem with taking a few days holiday from work.
It’s not the morning fatigue after a couple of lie-ins, nor is it the bulging inbox that greets you on your return.
It’s getting into work and discovering that on the day you weren’t there, a pony wearing a green raincoat went down the pavement on the Strand.
You can just imagine the talk on the Northern Line that morning.
“What’s that you got there?”
“What? Oh! This? I’m just taking my pony for a walk. On the Strand. He was getting a little bored in his stable of dreams.”

If you’ve seen anything better than that on a pavement in London, please feel free to make me jealous below.
