I should start by welcoming new readers. After an exchange of e-mails with David Golding, we realised we could have saved some time if I copied him in too and then leaving Paul Whittemore out seemed churlish, so here you are!!

Although I was committed to take part in the “start the week” meeting, I had calculated that if I drove to Swindon, my car would end up in the wrong place later in the week, so I attended telephonically. I had forgotten how difficult it was, the volume was low and I struggled to hear what everyone was saying. Ah well, I did try!! :-)

This time I made it to the “start the week” meeting but not much happened!
18 October 2018
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!
