…which means naughty. One of the words I’ve retained over the last half century, funnily enough, though I’ve never written it down and had to look up how to spell it. Anyway, with a stack of work to do, I took a long lunchtime and we went out to eat. I persuaded Russell to have a pudding (no, I had black coffee) and he bought me flowers. So things are relatively tranquil at the Zeddery (spell it as you wish, I use at least four different versions) although I had rather a long wait at the airport on my return, and I am procrastinating again by writing this.
On the list for tonight and tomorrow morning …
1 Email two prospective governors and arrange meetings (necessary to do this tonight)
2 Email friend who can tell me a make of halti that Ben doesn’t hate (this can wait)
3 Write the governors’ report for our annual return and accounts. I have at least gathered together a lot of info (urgent)
4 Go through all the reports that Nadfas chairmen have sent. Let the incoming secretary know. One of us has to chase up the people who haven’t contacted us yet. I have at least gone through the booking forms for next week’s meeting, but again, several people haven’t told us whether or not they are coming. Deadline is Friday, but we won’t meet it (also urgent)
5 Change spare room bedclothes because lovely Elle is over and is spending tomorrow evening and night with us. She isn’t daft, she knows I’ll then drive her to Norwich to catch her bus to the airport early the next morning. It’ll be so good to see her again. I’ve also invited Charlotte and Miriam for supper and C to stay the night (I don’t need to change that bed, she slept in it last week, but only for a night). Miriam is in Munich at the Oktoberfest at present (tomorrow morning)
6 Email a staff member to congratulate her on her promotion (tonight)
7 Email all the governors to update them before the AGM on Wednesday (tonight)
That will all take about five or six hours, I should think. Not too bad, I don’t know what I’m worrying about.
Photos will happen in due course, but possibly not until at least Wednesday night.
Oh look, it’s nearly 6 o’clock. A little something might help, don’t you think? Cheers, darlings.
