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!!

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!!
27 July 2018
I could not think of a good enough excuse, so I took part in the “start the week” meeting. I think it had everyone who ought to be there, so might come again!! :-)
20 July 2018
Yet another week with a cast iron reason not to “start the week”. :-)
Instead I went down to London to rendezvous with Fearless Leader and meet with the Bob Watson, the Chief Scientist at DEFRA.
12 July 2018
The week started in the middle of Sunday afternoon, with a drive up to the Lake District. This was not a cunning plan to get as far away as possible from the “start the week” meeting, but as part of HEFCE’s Research Assessment Exercise.
05 July 2018
At last, I have broken the tyranny of Monday mornings – I missed the “start the week” meeting. Instead I drove down to visit my old university at the invite of the alumnus vampires. It was an interesting and somewhat dispiriting day.
