What a difference sunshine makes, doesn’t it?
The past ten days we have been so fortunate with the weather and almost took it for granted. This morning is more like an early spring day! Showers and drizzle and a bit chilly. Ah well, it will make me knuckle down and get going on the huge mountain of paperwork here in the office. Perhaps.
I’ve got an exciting week ahead – starting in just 20minutes time. I am visiting Curves gym at Barnton to collect wonderful donations for our healthy snacks scheme. Then off to Hard Rock Cafe in George Street to meet Lesley Ross to chat about the upcoming Rock and Roll marathon – no, I am not taking part. I am cheering on our runners and have a space in the Hard Rock Tent (good news considering the possible weather!). Later today I have a meeting to discuss forthcoming afternoon tea events at the Caledonian Hotel soon to become a Waldorf hotel (oooh.)
I love Tuesdays – always spent in our home office with volunteers. The amazing young ambassadors – Michaela Waddell and Ailsa Macgregor – will be working away on the fashion show and this year’s planned workshops. Ann, Marlyn, Susan and I will be packing 30 parent and patient packs in readiness for delivery to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee. Multi-tasking as ever we will also be planning our next two events – the Elephant Drive and Blingo.
Wednesday I am off to Police HQ to be given a lovely cheque from monies raised at their Ball in January.
In between all of that we have meetings at the Sheraton, with STV local, and individual donors.
I’d like to see the sun return soon but meantime I will make the most of the inside time!
