I managed to make it to a “start the week” meeting, albeit late. The slightly late arrival was caused by a combination of more than usually heavy traffic at the Air Balloon (shades of Reggie Perrin) and waiting for the non-TSB employees to take all the parking places in our bit of the car park (but I’m over it now).

I would have made the “start the week” meeting, honestly, but my car started running rough on Saturday and I was vaguely worried that the intermittent problem I had last year – and which seasoned technicians sucked their teeth at and mentioned many thousands of pounds to fix – had recurred so I diverted via the local garage for a check-up.

The week started well before the “start the week” meeting because I went up to Scotland for the Governing Board Meeting. I chose to go by train as a partial contribution to our 10:10 goals and, for the most part, enjoyed it.

Bizarrely I was there in plenty of time for the “start the week” meeting and there were some interesting “catches” this time. I seem to remember it spun off into separate meetings about various things, so I didn’t get back to my desk until 10.30!!

Yet another chance to escape the rigours of the “start the week” meeting, although I am not sure that it’s worth giving up most of a Sunday to do so.

I came up with a really good way to avoid the “start the week” meeting this time – the need to be early in London to impersonate Fearless Leader at an event with the political glitterati meant I had to go down to London the evening before!!

Although I remember going to the “start the week” meeting, the various Outlook gremlins we seem to be suffering from have retrospectively removed from my diary. They also duplicated everything in my calendar, and Jools and I removed different versions, so at one point I had no commitments in my calendar. Bliss.

Another “start the week”, although one noted for a bit more knowledge transfer than usual – perhaps people are withholding information to make these meetings more interesting?

Another Monday and another “start the week” meeting. Will their fascination never dim?
24 January 2020
Monday started without any dire warnings about the weather, so I made it down to Swindon for a slightly depleted “start the week” meeting – lots of people were elsewhere.
