My organized day



I had a really busy day yesterday. It seemed like it would never end. With the help of coffee and my lovely clients though, I enjoyed every minute of it.

03.50 – woke up and started to translate an urgent document which had come in late last night. When it comes to things like official statements and press releases, they have to go out almost immediately.

06.00 – breakfast, showered, printed out documents I needed for today. Checked calendar.

07.00 to 08.00 – meeting (Parliamentary Committtee on Taxation)

08.00 to 09.00 – meeting (Parliamentary Committee on Defence)

09.15 to 10.45 – meeting (Parliamentary Committee on Social Insurance)

11.00am to 12.00 – meeting (Parliamentary Committee on EU Affairs)

12.15 to 16.00 – translation (at this point I was so tired I almost burst into tears)

16.15 to 17.45 – meeting (Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs)

18.00 to 19.00 – meeting (Parliamentary Committee on Culture)

19.00 to 21.00 – interpretation at an evening event

22.00 – finally home!

Necessities were:

* water

* comfortable shoes (flat riding boots)

* my organiser (for taking notes and seeing where I was going to be next)

* a bag that carried a lot but could be thrown about. Read more about this Lush bag here

* coffee!

Van Der Spek standard size custom Janet Leather binder, my Lush handbag (about ten years old) and briefing material.

  1. I had the feeling l was reading one of my days except that l don’t spend hours at meetings but at the EU interpreting and most of my days end up in a plane back home or in a taxi back to a hotel for a well deserved night.

    I envy you being able to carry such a big bag. My shoulder hurts so much some days that l had to downsize my bag and carry the minimum. I even had to give up on personal planners and start using my pockets for personal stuff.

    Hope you have a quiet and relaxing week-end before an other crazy week.
