I’m lucky enough to have been asked, and subsequently accept, a two week secondment in Edelman’s Washington DC office for a couple of weeks.

That, and Watford’s 3-1 win against Middlesbrough on Saturday got me thinking – how many other people are there from Watford, living and working in DC?
As if to not put too fine a point on it, the lady I shared the 8 hour flight with works with Thomson Reuters – two people in the same industry, somehow sat together, you couldn’t write it.
