It's good news week
Lady Bracknell, who has worked closely with the Outlook programme team for some years in a variety of capacities (chiefly that of an adviser on disability issues, although she has also acted as a mentor to a number of delightful and talented undergraduates), hopes that her own involvement has been in some small way a contributing factor to the success of the programme as a whole. (She should add at this juncture that Dude, the chauffeur, has inter-officiated surprisingly effectively for her on those occasions when she has been too frail to meet her pre-existing commitments.)
As a complete non-sequitur (but to save writing two separate blog entries), Lady Bracknell is given to understand that the editor devoted much of this afternoon to comparing deft flirting techniques with her manager. Whilst Lady Bracknell's protestant work ethic inclines her to take a very dim view indeed of persons who engage in recreational chit chat during working hours, she believes so strongly that a life without flirtations would be intolerably dull that she finds herself displaying uncharacteristic leniency in this particular instance.
