After my mea cupla on “start the week” meetings last week, it was vaguely amusing that Iain took a few of us to break our European duck – so we held a half quorate meeting on a Eurostar train.
11 October 2018
The week started with me playing hooky again – which gave me a problem later on – and escaping down to London.
04 October 2018
Another week, another no show at the “start the week” meeting. Instead I had 20 minutes of a dental hygienist testing how far my mouth would open and a cursory examination by the dentist to say that my teeth haven’t fallen out yet. Also on Monday was a chance to catch up on e-mails.
27 September 2018
Once again no “start the week” but David’s conscientiousness prompted into disclosing my plans for the week by e-mail!!
21 September 2018
The week started without a “start the week” meeting, so although I was in Swindon, I can keep my record!!
13 September 2018
Once again I find a reason not to start the week properly – this time is was another trip to Lake Windermere as part of the Research Assessment Exercise Chemistry Panel, which is nearing the end of its deliberations and coming up with radically surprising results – only kidding!!
06 September 2018
I took the opportunity of lots of cancelled meetings to work at home on Monday – which always meant I preserved my record with respect to Start the Week meetings!
31 August 2018
Second week back after a holiday and the nation proudly declares a bank holiday to help me avoid another “start the week” meeting.
24 August 2018
A short week after a couple of weeks away – with a combination of West Coast jetlag and Swindon fever to make it seem more unreal!!
01 August 2018
Once again, I made it to the “start the week” but this time a depleted one. Serious power chairmanship meant we got out with 15 minutes to spare, Go Cyrus!!
