I didn't realise the disadvantage of having to use crutches for the simplest tasks in the office, with mounds of paper accumulating all over the place. The act of retrieving one pile requires moving a chair so that one can sit down on it to reach the pile. Then having picked it up, working on each individual document requires a variety of further actions: it can be binned, or filed, or be scanned and sent with a covering email to someone, or reference to be made to another document already in the files, and all of these mean getting around the office with bits of paper. If something is knocked off the desk or table and it finishes under the piece of furniture, as happened just now with Lindsay's clock, its a job to retrieve it, let alone put it back together. Victoria has been tremendously helpful, and of course dear Lindsay is too wonderful for words.
