Saturday. I arrive with a sense of relief having spent most of the week sitting around meeting tables in Edinburgh. We’ve been grouping meetings together to save travel time and cost – but the cumulative effect is mind-numbing. I got the odd e mail out under the radar, as it were, to see if anybody was interested in negotiating a ransom to get me released. But nothing.
And then it’s Lady Day. So I spent this morning with our Mothers’ Union branches and had that wonderful sniff of Christmas which today gives in the midst of Lent.
