I am a member of the Wealden Business Group (WBG): a breakfast networking meeting for business people in the Weald of Kent and Sussex. We meet on Wednesdays at the Little Silver Country Hotel, Ashford Road, St Michaels, Tenterden - further information at http://www.wgb.me
Having previously been chairman and secretary and filled other committee posts, I felt I had done my bit for the group; indeed, when I gave up being secretary a couple of years ago, I promised my wife not to take on another job - at that AGM at least
So I was rather surprised to find myself volunteering to become secretary again at the AGM on 1 April (last Wednesday) - I almost felt I was playing an April Fool's joke on myself!
I didn't tell my wife until Thursday evening, 36 hours later - I tell myself that this was because we had both been busy during the days and she had been away overnight, but I suspect it was also because I thought she'd thump me!
However, it is quite good to be fully involved again - I bet I won't feel the same this time next year!
