Weeknotes 07 Jan 2022
Getting used to looking a screens, I’ve defiantly come back rested and connected.
This week I’ve been out for a walk every day, which has been nice, no sunrise walks yet, slowly moving my clock back to pre holiday patterns.
The hardest day by far this week was Wednesday. By the end of the 2 and half hour meeting my brain was fried but rejuvenated. I do miss being in person for meetings like that where your looking at dependencies and interactions between things.
Two meetings stand out as exemplary — Emi, Mike and I’s chat about Lightning Talks and the Organisation Dynamics sorting of findings form our latest round of research in Mural, doing and talking together — love that approach.
It definitely feels like gearing up in all sorts of ways and as ever January is going to have lots going on. UKGovcamp is just round the corner. On Tuesday I posted off the seed paper, and we had our 1st organisers meeting of the year. Slack is hoting up on all fronts now pitching is open. With over 400 people registered it’s going to be a cracking session — maybe the last were were just online… maybe…
We re pegged the date for the next FFCP Wellbeing day to the 27th January, it was on Blue Monday but we didn't feel we could make it work as organisers.
The spending control panel approved the spend for Together Day on Tuesday (the same day Al put in the request). One hoop down lots to go but it feels like we have a date and a venue and that’s great progress given we are five months out.
The Secretary of States announcement at the Oxford Farming Conference came up the news during lunch on Wednesday, which was nice to see. Though I have been enjoying the soundbites on twitter of the Oxford Real Farming Conference in between things.
I had other lovely chats.
