Today I have been very busy getting not much done. I moved upstairs to my new office (and got cross with the person who has moved into my old desk – he has been circling the room like a vulture for months angling to move in and I hadn’t even totally cleared my desk before it was covered in his stuff!). This afternoon I went for caffeine and cake with the girl who has been at the next desk to me for the last year – she submitted today! We were all very excited, though I think for her it was all a bit of an anti-climax. With any luck this will be me this time next year. Then this evening I went for caffeine and cake (hmm, theme emerging here!) with another friend, from my book group (that I can’t go to later this week as I’ll be at the wrong end of the country). She is also doing a PhD, so I’m afraid we talked about that a lot too. So it’s been kind of a PhD-full day, but without necessarily having done very much!
Tomorrow the first tutorials of the year start. Regular readers will no doubt be totally unsurprised at my current feelings of utter lack of enthusiasm, tinged with feeling slightly sick. Welcome to Monday nights for the next 2 terms!
