Diplomatic Diva's Delights

Tired on Tuesday

Probably not a good idea to watch “Gone with the Wind” til midnight on Monday… Madagascar, Commonwealth funding and Scholarships all featured today.

Number of the Day: 60,000

The amount of GB Sterling to allocate in scholarships for the next academic year.

Special anniversary: 25th anniversary of Hillsborough. Never forget. Justice for the 96!

Manic Monday

A foggy start, which perfectly matched my mood as I struggled with elections in Egypt, assets recovery in Ukraine and our star candidate (on paper) withdrawing from the scholarship process…

Number of e-mails: definitely more than three

Number of internal meetings: two

Number of muffins consumed: one

Number of sugar shacks to be visited: none!

Forgetful Friday

And after this week of reduced staffing, bureaucratic nonsense and tons of instructions from HQ, I DESERVED A TREAT!

Well being Wednesday 

Desperately trying to increase the amount of fruit and vegetables in my diet…

Great scholarship interviews over the past two days.

Time out Tuesday

When lunch in the food court is preferable to dealing with idiot colleagues back in Blighty who are trying their best to irritate the hell out of you.
