Many thanks for your email. I look forward to seeing you at tomorrow’s meeting. Should you need to discuss anything in the interim, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks

Dear Both

I’d appreciate if we could meet half an hour earlier than scheduled as I have to leave for another meeting afterwards. Could you also forward your timesheets for last month and your monthly reports. In addition to outputs and outcomes, an additional column for inputs has been added going forward.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Kind regards

Dear Susie

Please find attached the agenda for tomorrow’s team meeting. Please print off copies. I’d appreciate if you could re-book the meeting room for 10am instead of 10:30am.

Hi Bodie

That’s no problem. Would you like those printed on double-sided along with the minutes from the last meeting?

Effective partnership working going forward

  1. Ah yes, Life was so much simpler in the 70’s. And things got done. Was there a voluntary sector back then, or was it nationalised???

    • Well, we had the nuns and a few “rabid hairy-arsed feminists”, as they were probably affectionately known, and I think you had Jim’ll Fix It and That’s Life. Could you imagine Bodie and Doyle filling in their quarterly funding returns? I think I might just do that for Part Two. And how lovely to see you popping in. My needy side has been waiting on you; my obsessive side was a day away from filing a missing person’s report to WordPress. More procedures *throws eyes up*

      • Well, wouldn’t want to give you more paperwork!! Had very dodgy internet last few weeks – only enough for the Other Two. Hmph.

      • Nooooo. I had no idea you had some Irish Mammy in ya. How many Irish mothers does it take to change a light bulb? “It’s OK, I don’t mind sitting in the dark”. I’ve been waiting to read of your walk, including what snacks you all had afterwards.

      • it’s coming honest. For now you’ll have to make do with a short post about the hell that is going without 70 denier tights. It’s going to appear in the next two mins šŸ™‚

      • Apologies for the delay in posting – someone phoned and I had to Work!!!!!! The wee post is up – so get in there with your couthie banter and get me some comments going šŸ™‚
