This was the first week of our half-staycation. This month I (as well as E) am working on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and spending the rest of the week together.

  • Worked a day and a half on th EU high value data study, updating two chapters of a previous report with new information received
  • Worked on digital transformation for a province
  • Continued reworking previous blogposts, presentations and documents into notes. Now at over 200 notes. This week open data insights mostly.
  • The rest of the week we camped out in E’s brother’s garden, to celebrate the birthday of our niece I. We had plenty of space to meet the family while maintaining distance.

Following up on Robert’s gentle nudge to return to adding images to these week notes:

This week in …. 1867*
On August 9th 1867 Evelina Haverfield was born in Scotland. She was a militant suffragette, fighting for the womens right to vote from 1908. During World War I she worked as a nurse in Serbia, and later returned there a.o. to start an orphanage. There is a Serbian postage stamp, celebrating her as a World War I heroine.
