Another missed “start the week” meeting, because I was driving up the MI at that time to Sheffield. I seem to have become the Chairman of the Molecular Engineering Translational Research Centre – http://www.molecularengineering.co.uk/ – and this was their second Board Meeting. It is strange affair, because it sort of competes with the Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry – http://www.materialschemistry.org/kcmc/index.html.

No “start the week” meeting because it was a bank holiday. Yeh!!

How I love the feeling when I wake up on a Monday morning and know that I have a “start the week” meeting to look forward to. It’s only a shame that I have to traverse the Air Balloon roundabout to get to it!!

This is getting ridiculous – I manage to make another “start the week” meeting. I must be addicted or something. Because Fearless Leader was learning about the media, Cyrus chaired with his usual ruthless efficiency and we finish in 45 minutes. Next up is the first proper Innovate 09 Steering Group. The task (Huw has picked up some of the drive that Lisa used last year but has yet to get the finesse of doughnut selection) is to choose a tagline.

Another truncated week, with a sense of anticipation about all those possibly lost e-mails turning up. I am sure that, in years to come, we will remember the holiday weekend without e-mail with fondness, but for the moment….

The week started weirdly, with some sadistic person bringing forward the timing of the “start the week” by half an hour. As a loyal and true worker, I got up early to ensure that I was there on time, and – since I didn’t realise it was half-term – I got there about a hour early. Doh!!

An unusual Monday. Firstly, I wasn’t going to Swindon for the “start the week” meeting, and secondly, because my first meeting wasn’t until 3 o’clock, I didn’t set an alarm!! Yeh!!!

After the “start the week” meeting, Monday was a serious “in Swindon, catch up with people” day.

Another Monday, another “start the week” meeting. Then on to a fascinating discussion with Lisa about how we got to the present portfolio – in a historical sense – and where we are planning to go. She has caused me a nasty worry that we have been justifying ourselves for 20 months and not really thinking.

The week started with the rapidly enlarging “start the week” meeting. How long before we have to move again to accommodate the management team? ☺ Oh, I forgot, we can double the size of the room.
