You'd think, therefore, that a day filled with meetings of 30-60 minutes in duration would be the perfect day for the likes of me. A list of meeting rooms and times, with a vague idea of what will unfold in that darkened chamber, you'd think it would be ideal.
Well, it isn't.
What was it I said at my third or fourth meeting of the day to someone? I think I said "Sorry, are we boring you?"to the couple of chaps whom we'd encouraged to come to the front of the meeting room from the back where they'd planned to hide. They weren't really participating in the conversation and had started to play with a phone between each other. They mumbled something about an issue - "Oh, is it a Priority 1?" - nothing.
If my return to an office after Easter break is to be spent running round like this, then I can see why I dropped the niceties. It's not ideal, though, is it?
Still, the day flew by.
