On Saturday evening Simon will sometimes go to a night club. A member of staff will drop him off at the club and then pick him up when he is ready. During the time that Simon is at the club, staff will return to Simon's house and undertake any domestic duties such as ironing or tidying while they wait for Simon to call.
