10.00am meeting with students has been postponed because one student has a tummy bug. 11.30 met with Eiluned – Senior Research Fellow at the V&A to talk about a presentation, which we must give at the next departmental meeting. Was good to hear about her progress, and she has put me in touch with a possible embroiderer in India who may be able to complete some sequin work which I need to have done. Departmental staff lunch (a rather belated staff Christmas party) at 13.00pm. Was great to meet some members of staff who I have seen in passing, but not yet met properly. Will follow up. My ex-colleague Stuart Aitken is having a retrospective private view of his work in Rochester tonight, but not sure that I will be able to attend.
