Ah right, I missed the bit about it taking two weeks. My only thought is that five months is too far in advance to make plans as things can happen but I'd happily say to pencil it in my diary and we could discuss nearer the time. That said, I don't see a high volume due to other commitments so for someone of a higher workload, I can see why it may be necessary. I read a lot of things on here and other forums and don't know why people don't make it easier for themselves. I answer messages as and when I read them or I'd forget which can mean missed meets or pissing people off. Dunno, I wouldn't be happy to wait two weeks for an answer, I'd probably look elsewhere...nobody likes having their time wasted.
