A proud moment
23 October 2014, 11 am
This must be the pinnacle of my career! I am at CIPA, signing letters as VeePee. Proper letters, on proper CIPA headed notepaper. With my very own signature. Which is a bit blotchy because my pen has been on a lot of long train journeys and it wasn’t that good before the train journeys started, in fact I think I nicked it from a conference in 2009 and I would have been better off nicking the boiled sweets.
I remember a time when I would not have been allowed anywhere near the CIPA headed notepaper. It would have been whisked away for fear of me misusing it in some way – a not unfounded fear, I have to admit. But today they have no choice. Today we have to invite a load of important people to come to a meeting about diversity. So today it is mine, all mine, and I feel very proud and important, and it is all I can do to stop myself asking Mr Lampert to take a photo of me doing the blotchy signatures so that I can show my mum.
Only Mr Lampert is busy. Reading emails. Mainly from me.
