Our friends, neighbours and cat-sitters alike

  • Comment

Unlike Martin Pawley (AJ 1.7.04), my cat was never looked after by Jeffrey Archer's wife. But when I lived in St Anne's Close, Highgate - two bedrooms, garden and off-road parking at £3 a week - one of my next door neighbours was Walter Segal (pictured) and the guy in the flat upstairs, who was the lighting designer at the Royal Court, later ran off with Glenda Jackson. By then - nine years later - the rent had gone up to £8.

When I lived there, one of the people at the next drawing board to me in Enthoven & Mock's in Gray's Inn was a certain Martin Pawley. If only I had known he lived next door to Jeffrey. Maybe I could have asked if he would have come round to my place and put my cat out too.
