August 3 - Heat is never good for us.

Call outs rise. They have today. It seems alarms trip in heat and people get ratty waiting for a response.

Moral: remember to get our people to work out how we overcome this. There's no reason for it and it's very (polite word) annoying.

August 1 – Back to work, again.

I wish it had been an easier first morning. The business got through the week without me – as I expected. Sure, there’s the usual pile of stuff to do – much of it because systems require me to sign some things off. I can do all that.

July 22 – Yes I know, it’s time to go away again.

School breaks up today.

The CEO tribe go on holiday in the morning. Not far – see you in sunny (?) Dorset if you’re around.

July 11 – Drafting the right form of wording to send to the shareholders following on from my meeting with the CEO was hard. I went through umpteen versions and usually take only moments to decide on what to write (about which no comment is needed here, thank you).

July 6 – I my have spoken too soon about shareholder agreement to the accounts. The ex-CEO has been keeping a pretty low profile for some time, as far as I can see to avoid any risk of conflict with his offspring in the aftermath of their mother’s (and his ex-wife’s) death.

July 4 - It wasn't long ago I mentioned the problems I anticipated facing about now as a result of losing a major contract.

My big concern was keeping jobs. Well I have kept some by moving some activity to the North  where I can undertake more manufacturing.
