Last week’s weeknote is a few days late…
That was the week when I confirmed that:
- I’m still not a fan of panel discussions (I did take part in this event, but it still didn’t do it for me).

I’m on holiday now, which leads to my final point. I was reminded that being away from work should be absolute… if you do drop into email to do “just one thing” you may see things that then nag you and you have to fix them…
You have been warned!
