Miles was late. He was 'putting an offer in on a second home in the area'.

The setting couldn't had been any better for a monotone rant about the problems facing a dad-of-four struggling to come to terms with his lost youth and freedom.
The festival crowd - full of edgy mums and dads, with their trendy children donning floral headbands - lapped up the jokes about life with 2.4 children and the dreaded dishwasher.
Miles was different to his Have got I Got News For You persona.

We all recognised his middle England life as we sat in the sun on our Cath Kidston chairs.
Poor Miles, domestic life can be a bore.
I just wonder what the nanny thought.
