The week started oddly, in that Cyrus had issued such dire warnings about weather and our safety that I (along with others I think) had decided to call into the “start the week” meeting rather than risk driving down for the early start.

I made it to the “start the week” meeting despite the very strong urge not to get up. First priority after that was to update the Risk Register – it had been on my to-do list for about a month but I needed to sit down connected to the wonderful SharePoint system and that required more patience than I can generally muster

I managed to be in Swindon on a Monday morning but had been stitched into a teleconference, so missed the “start the week” meeting.

Another week where I managed to attend the “start the week” meeting – although the Swindon traffic meant I was a few minutes late. After that it was a meeting with the guys who are proposing to develop an iPhone app for the KTNs.

I had meant to drive to Sheffield for a METRC Board meeting, but the intermittent fault with my car prompted me to bow out gracefully and instead go to London.

Monday was another normal one, so I missed the “start the week” meeting and instead headed down to London. I was taking part in the Guardian Cleantech Summit (http://www.guardian.co.uk/cleantechsummit), courtesy of Filomena’s original catch that it was happening and Lady Claire’s desire to engage with the media at every opportunity.

Another week finds me mysteriously at the “start the week” meeting, and fun it is too!! Then we have a discussion on the progress of the metrics and measures work-stream. It’s nice to find out what they are doing!!

For the first time in a long while, I made it to the “start the week” meeting but couldn’t see what all the fuss was about – aside from the useful insight from Lisa that the metrics work required me to read all the submissions from the Innovation Programmes group before Monday – something I had not picked up from any of the e-mails on the subject. :-(

Yet another missed opportunity to “start the week”, but I did get into Swindon on a Monday, so I am starting to conform.

Oh dear, yet another week that got started somewhere other than Swindon. Since it was half-term it looks like nearly everyone else missed it too!
