So the one to one went pretty well. No unexpected big jobs as a result of it and a bit of a clearer idea of what my targets for the next year are going to be. Plus yet another teensy insight in to how his mind works which may be of value later...

Still, must get round to sorting that Police Application form before the end of the week. You never know after all.

In order to speed the distribution effort we are going to do some on Saturday (well it was cheaper to book the van for the whole week rather than a few days!) in return for another day off in the week sometime. I guess I will take that on a day Joan is off so as to spend some time with her. She is working Saturday anyway so it won't make much difference me being out and about rather than in the house.

Today's quote from a WH Smith carrier bag is this: Read the best books first, or you may not have time to read them all. As related by American Author David Thoreau (1817-1862) which makes a kind of sense. But how do you know which are the best books without reading them first? After all, reviews are only a subjective view from the reviewer who may see things very differently from you. And even if half a dozen reviews all agree on the worthiness of a certain tome, what happens when number seven disagrees violently? As is likely to be the case if the original are in the specialist press and the pther in the mainstream (or, indeed, vice versa). I think I shall continue to stick with my own opinions but take note of what people recommend.
