I was so terribly ill that I couldn’t possibly take the Knowledge Management exam. My tutor, Professor BC, was extremely sympathetic (and – most bizarrely – looked super-cool dressed in distressed denim jeans). He granted permission for me to take the resit paper as a first diet in July. Added to this, he suggested a summer extension for my Honours project. This came as a great relief since I was yet to type up a single word of my dissertation.
We held the meeting in the open on the Isle of Lewis. A row broke out over the text of the leaflet. It became obvious that there were actually two versions in circulation, and it was the section on public library provision in Northern Ireland sourced by LH that was incorrect. In the break I introduced my sister S to Belle, who looked fabulously slim in a pink floaty dress. Decked out head-to-toe in the brown of the THS school uniform, we looked very drab standing next to her. Belle and I tried to persuade S to sit with us to eat our sandwiches, but she insisted on taking the optional lunch-time tour to the Ring of Brodgar on Orkney.
