Ireland day 0793. Thursday 30 November 2023- Office Return
(Summary blog only. Last full blog was Day 0368).
After two days of full-on conferencing, I was quite pleased “just” to be going to the office today.
I had some admin tasks to attend to first thing, then headed off to the office mid-morning. It was quite a productive day, with an interesting technical meeting in which I realised I actually knew a lot less about the subject than I thought I did.
The downside of being in an interesting discussion was that I forgot to go to lunch until after the staff canteen had closed. So I had to venture out into the sleety cold afternoon to get a panini in a nearby shopping centre. But €15.10 for what was essentially just a sandwich with a small piece of cake and a cup of tea was a bit excessive, I thought. Definitely only for use in emergency situations!
I left the office at 6pm and was back at the flat in about half an hour. By the time I arrived, Val had left to go to Wonderlights so I briefly contemplated using the spare evening do do my Spanish deberes. But I quickly thought the better of it and decided to go for a brisk walk round my favourite “hill and sea” circuit instead. Then once Val gets back, I’m looking forward to watching a bit more of “Succession”. We are well into the final season now and I’m fascinated to see how it all plays out.
