Monday - Back to work, back to reality

After a week in Menorca with the family I returned to the office relaxed and in good spirits looking forward to the week ahead, until I saw my Inbox. The email from IT advising my mailbox is at capacity, along with a cup of coffee initiated the usual post-holiday ritual most will be familiar with of clearing out the Inbox and catching up on matters. It’s funny how after a couple of hours you forget you were just on holiday. Thankfully working with an excellent team has its benefits and transactions have been able to progress in my absence without issue. A quick client meeting regarding a possible new investment purchase and then it is time to log off for the Nursery pickup.

Tuesday - Big Plans

It’s an early start for a day of drafting and client meetings. We are privileged to be involved with some amazing clients and projects at Thorntons. I spent most of the morning looking at plans and drafting an Offer for the acquisition of a development site for an international client who are setting up a new headquarters in Fife. The afternoon was spent with the client on a video running through the offer and making some changes during the meeting, something our new Zoom Meeting Rooms have been great at assisting with.


Wednesday - In Full Swing

It’s normally a working from home day for me on a Wednesday, but with holiday season now in full swing it’s easier to be in the office. The firm has invested heavily in IT infrastructure to allow staff to provide clients with a first class service whilst working from home. After a busy day there is still time to make a 17.52 tee time down at Panmure Golf Club with a colleague! The course is in great condition but busy with guests so we ended up making up a four ball with former Rugby International Andy Nicoll and his guest, after I miss my putt 17th green we all agreed that golf was the winner,  

Thursday - Field Trip

It’s funny how kids just seem to know when you have an early morning meeting and are trying to get out of the house. Football boots found and we are off, our oldest has been at a football camp run by D.E.C.S.C all week and it was my turn to drop him off before heading by a client’s development site for a quick site visit. We do work for clients all over Scotland and don’t always get to see completed projects so it’s nice to be out of the office to see this one in Broughty Ferry just prior to handover, especially on such a nice day.

Friday - The Open, For Business

Today I am off to hospitality at the Open in St Andrews - It’s a working day honest. The bus dropped us off early in St Andrews to beat the traffic, so there is ample time for a coffee and bacon roll before making our way to the Old Course. After a couple of hours of watching the golf, including Tiger making Birdie on the third, we head off to meet the rest of our group for lunch at the award winning Haar Restaurant. After a superb lunch the sun has appeared and we are back to the course for a couple of drinks and some more golf. After Tiger had made his emotional journey down the 18th we headed off to St Andrews newest trendy beach shack on the West Sands, “The Dook”, where the week comes to end with a St Andrews sunset and a Mojito.
