I set off this morning to meet 'S' in the full knowledge that the meeting would definitely take place this time. How could I be so sure? Well 'S' had sent me a text message to say that he was in work and was looking forward to our meeting.

I arrived a little early, but there is nothing unusual in that, and sent a text message to 'S' to let him know that I was in reception. A few minutes later a text message came in to let me know that he was on his way down to meet me.

After a quick handshake in reception we set off to a little Italian restaurant a short distance from the university building. We had a lovely lunch, a glass or two of wine and enjoyed a great deal of conversation.

I am now feeling a little more confident about doing this lecture and the next couple of days will see me trying to get it clearly formulated so that I know what I am going to say. I already have the structure clear in my mind; it's just the meat of the piece that needs to be sorted now. I now have just over two weeks until the big day.

On a slightly different tack, I am pleased to announce that There and Back to See How Far It Is has written her first post for a few months. There and Back and I communicate on a regular basis and we have discussed her posting again, and today is the big day. Please welcome her back if you can.
