Diary – Tuesday 23 July 2002


I’ve just lost the entry I was composing. That’ll teach me to try and be clever. but I’ll try to recreate the genius.

Note to self: Use that save button!

Here goes…..

Ooof, today’s been a long one. I paid the price for last night’s over enthusiastic immersion in the joys of MT Sparkly as I’m starting to call this pet project, and only managed 5 hours sleep before the Today programme roused me from my slumbers with news that “they’ve” selected the new Archbishop of Canterbury. Sometimes I can manage on minimal Maggie Thatcher quantities of sleep, but today isn’t one of them. I must be getting old….

Delight du Jour has been the Scanning Review (revisited). It’s proving to be my nemesis project since I returned to Simmons & Simmons in June 2001… It’s a long, long story, which will have to wait until another time for the telling. Anyway, according to my carpe diem counters, I’ve spent 7 hours and 10 mins bludgeoning my ideas and recommendations into mindmaps and visio diagrams. My eyes and brain and shoulders and achy mouse wrist could have told me that.

Still, today has had its highlights though; lunch with TC, messages from TLP, and IOU settlement immediatement internettement from bro. Life could be worse!

But right now It’s Hometime! Wonder what’s on TV…. kinda glad Emma and Robert had to cancel dinner chez Mez…
