never say "yes"

yesterday, I rushed out to Nailsea at 3.30 to go to a seminar for school governors on financing. Then I rushed home to eat supper (which perlmonger had kindly cooked) before rushing out again to a Rural Branch Meeting of the LibDems. This one was about a mile away, so walking distance, although the rain rained and the wind blew. My new walking shoes are proving useful.

tonight, perlmonger is very kindly cooking again as I have to rush out, to Portishead this time, for an Exec meeting of Woodspring LibDems (or are we North Somerset now?).

tomorrow morning, I’m going to see the Clerk to the Parish Council, to demonstrate the web data entry system we have developed (free of charge, of course) for the entry of the Parish Plan Questionnaires returned. 101 questions, 1600 copies, plus all the Young Persons’ Questionnaires.

looking at my diary for the next week or two, I have a School Governors’ Meeting (Full), a Footpath Committee Meeting, the LibDem Sossidge and Mash supper, the Introduction to Parish Councillors’ meeting, a Nailsea Arts Festival Meeting, a Parliamentary Working Party meeting, and two data entry evenings for the aforementioned Questionnaire. That takes me through to 26 March – I daren’t look further ahead.

inevitably, some of these clash, so Pete and I will have to bifurcate; this will be painful, I’m sure.

oh, and on Sunday we did the Pub Quiz at the Legion (our team is called The Aliens, and consists of us, plus Pat&Dave (WANOLJ, but are known to many of you)) – after a couple of dismal evenings, we got our eye in this week, and came third. Onwards and Upwards. However, this means that by tomorrow, I will have been out for three evenings on the trot – I am so looking forward to a Quiet Night In.

One thought on “never say "yes"”

  1. Ha, you’ve only yourself to blame. At this time of year, between work and “voluntary” stuff I usually manage about one Saturday in 6 and one evening a fortnight when I’m not totally embuggered by stuff 🙂
