Extreme excitement at the “start the week” meeting. FL was off to Bristol, Cyrus had a broken PC and David Way was in London, so I got to chair it. End of excitement.

Monday morning. The “start the week” meeting. No excitement. TIC Update meeting. No real excitement, but lots of anticipation.

Another Monday, and FL finds a way of making the “start the week” meeting a little bit more interesting – he announces that he is going away for the coming weekend to Prague. This precipitates a “what I do at weekends” competition between the rest of us. I lose!

It was Monday. There was a “start the week” meeting. Is there more to say? There was also a TIC Update meeting but we ran out of time.

The frightening unpredictably of Birdlip Hill has now been completely replaced by the almost total certainty of the Fosse Way and so I once again found myself at a “start the week” meeting. It passed without major upset and, after a short break to refresh our coffee cups, we ploughed into the TIC update meeting.

One too many Mondays, but a pleasant enough drive down to Swindon for the “start the week” meeting, then the “oh my god, we’ve got so much to do” TIC update and then a briefing by Richard Kemp-Harper and the Media Dominatrix about the upcoming Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Showcase event so that my head would be in gear by Friday.
11 June 2021
Another Monday morning, another early morning drive through the lower end of Cotswolds and another “start the week” meeting. Can life get better? With FL in Scotland, David Way ably took charge and we finished in just under 30 minutes, so we got a chance to refill our coffee cups before the TIC Update meeting.

Another non-Monday week, so another missed opportunity to revel in the adrenaline rush that is the “start the week” meeting. Instead, on Tuesday, I went to the Annual General Meeting of one of my other jobs.

I know I was at the “start the week” meeting, but I truly cannot remember whether anything earth-shattering happened at it. I do remember the TIC round-up, where we started to come to terms with the amount of work we are committing to do over the next few months to deliver an outcome that the Governing Board will back and will keep FL from being burned alive at a Number 10 BBQ!

The weekend was largely consumed, both for me and Energy Man, with restating the case for the Offshore Renewable Energy TIC to address the concerns on market we had collected from Anne Glover on the Thursday. What I discovered in the process was that Google never sleeps, Andrew Haslett and David Godber both answer e-mails on a weekend and that we couldn’t have asked for a better analysis that that provided by the Committee for Climate Change the previous week!
