The Board meeting has been and gone.
Heat is not good for business. We have strict dress codes for those visiting customer premises. Many of these are for health and safety reasons. They are harder to enforce in this weather. #
I should have been preparing for the board meeting on Thursday today, but le me be honest: I think it will go OK. So I didn't.
Instead I had our IT chap (appointed, some might recall, because he's a bit of a geek) in my office much of the day.

There's a problem with this new software: it tells the truth. If I post a blog for one day the next day on the old AccountingWEB software I could just re-set the clock. As far as I know I can't do that here (and if I can - someone tell me how to do it!).
#1 bounced some things off me this afternoon. One was some new documentation I had to sign off for internal control purposes.
I recalled this morning's lesson: I asked her to trial it on people first.

June 24 - This is not the usual stuff, but it's good for me to think about.
June 23 - This is all very weird. Apparently I'm a blogger now. AccountingWEB says so. And it's weird. I thought you were young and trendy, were on Twitter, Facebook and more besides before you became a blogger. But diaries are out: blogs are in.
Not for the first time, the CEO's had a good idea whilst walking the dog
The CEO admits it's time for a new plan, and he hasn't got one
June 19 – I gather normal service has been resumed here. It’s been quite odd to be told not to write for a day or two. It goes against all my instincts.
