I had a variety of meetings scheduled for London Monday so my plan was always to drive down there and miss the “start the week” meeting. On Sunday, I started receiving what turned out to be the first of a stream of cancellations that ended up with most of Monday being decimated.

It was Monday. FL was in India so Cyrus dispatched the “start the week” meeting with the efficiency of an abattoir worker. Then it was on the TIC Update meeting, with more pleas for guidance from those appointed as gladiators for the forthcoming tournament.

It was a Monday, and I couldn’t think of a good enough excuse, so I made it to the “start the week” meeting.

Although it was Monday and I left the house in more or less the direction of Swindon, I didn’t make it to the “start the week” meeting. Instead, I ended up waiting at Pangbourne railway station for Transport Man (who was only a few minutes late)

What was this? It’s Monday morning and I was in Swindon! I got there in enough time to have a cup of coffee before the “start the week” meeting. It had been so long that I had forgotten the awesome power of talking about diaries
22 October 2021
So, another Monday morning with a reason not to be in Swindon and, therefore, another missed “start the week” meeting.
15 October 2021
It was another “I need to be in London early on a Monday morning” Monday, so I missed the “start the week” meeting. What happens at them these days, anyway?
08 October 2021
Yet another missed opportunity to enjoy the “start the week” meeting! Instead I was on a train to Sheffield, where I popped in to be part of the University Audit Committee. It comes with the Council appointment but I was dreading it.

It is becoming a habit! Yet another “start the week” meeting missed. This time the reason was all about work, so I guess it’s okay. On Sunday, I met up with Healthcare Man and David Way to (nominally) have dinner with the assessors for the Cell Therapy Technology and Innovation Centre.

Despite my best intentions to make my first “start the week” meeting in weeks, an unplanned field trip to investigate the treatment of older adults in an NHS Accident and Emergency Department ruined my plans and so I missed both that and the following TIC Update meeting.
