On being a committee member

Today, another committee meeting. The second in two weekends.

This time, it was for the 2004 Discworld Convention and I only have one action on me, not as bad as last Saturday when (despite being the minute taker - I'm sure you're aware of Sir Humphrey's view of minutes - he who takes the minutes controls what is recorded) I ended up with eight actions, twice as much as anyone else.

It helped that this time we were the hosts, so I didn't have to go all the way to Nottingham for the meeting. Since moving out of London, I've got out of the habit of driving much, and a 200+ mile round trip is more mileage that I'd do with three months of my current normal daily commute.

We also enjoyed seeing friends who we don't get to see very often - three came in from Ireland, and two from the Netherlands just for the weekend.
