He came to the job in later life and the money was good but he worked hard and played hard too.

I’m 42 and he started coming home late and most times he was drunk. I found wraps in his suit jacket when I was taking it to the cleaners.

I didn’t know what it was but he laughed at me, saying it was “just bit of Charlie”. He said everyone does it in the City.
