If Andrea suspected Norman had been drinking I'm convinced that she wouldn't sympathise. Like any English wife worth her salt she would automatically reach for the rolling pin and give him a piece of her mind. As for the shepherd's pie ... this topic would merit a full Sunday debate. Let's just say that shepherds are not always condemned to eat mutton, just as you don't have to live in a cottage to eat cottage pie. Incidentally I think this track is great. Norman could be Arthur's spirital son. He convinces himself that his crushingly boring job and intolerably humdrum life are the price to pay for a cosy shangri-la home.
