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!

Instead of Monday this week, my week started on Sunday afternoon, because I had to be in London bright and early for the World Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine Congress, so I caught a train down on the Sunday evening. I am constantly amazed by how many people migrate on a Sunday evening to where they need to be the next morning and look sad about it!

Of course, Monday was a Tuesday this week and because everyone thought FL wouldn’t be back, we didn’t plan to have a “start the week” meeting. We did have a TIC update, but then we went into a Governing Board preparation meeting, which time seems to have wiped from my memory.

Monday was, of course, a Tuesday this week, and since it was the final Tuesday of the month, I was otherwise engaged with another commitment to a small company. It gives me a fascinating insight into part of the world we are trying to support but usually only provides contextual stuff.

After weeks of slavish adherence to the principle and practice of the “start the week” meeting, I decided to play hooky for this one and turn up late. I had an hour or so to catch up with things before a quick chat with Obi-Wan about his plans for world domination

Monday started as usual – it must have been the half-term effect, but I made it in record time and so hung around the office trying to invent things to do before the “start the week” meeting.

Monday has now degenerated into a routine drive down the Fosse Way with nothing to report about the journey so, once again, I joined the “start the week” meeting with a coffee in my hand.
