    help

    I can't understand the highlighted sentence:

    I came in at about ten past six to ask how much leave I'd got on account of wanting a day off next week. Miss Bolam got out my dossier - leastwise it was already out come to think of it - and we fixed that up and had a bit of a chat about the work.


    Can you help me?
    Thanks.

    It means, "Now that I think about it, I realise that my dossier was already out on the desk."
