A few years ago Chris Smith, an Englishman who lives in Thailand and runs the Shambles website, invited me to take part in an online conference.
"I was wondering if you could give a talk to a group of headteachers", he said.
"Of course. When?"
"It will be on a Sunday morning. Unfortunately, because of the time difference, you'll need to be on Skype video by 6 am London time. Look, don't worry about getting fully dressed or anything. Just tip out of bed and put a top on. That'll do."
"Erm, right", I replied, thinking to myself, "I don't think so."
