Returning to the house after running errands,
I am often greeted by several pairs of unrecognised shoes outside my door.
It usually indicates the presence of one of the many squadrons of workers, who are summoned by Shaji from time to time.
Over the years, I have slowly grown used to teams of plumbers, electricians, carpenters, tilers, upholsterers or decorators suddenly swooping upon the house.
Now I know them all quite well.
But not quite well enough to identify them by their sandals..
