Some people may have noticed a bit of a dulling around here. There hasn’t really been anything earth-shattering to write about. The study day yesterday went well – the bit I co-facilitated generated plenty of interesting discussion, the second half was a bit over my head but OK, and we had lots of cake provided. Which isn’t ideal from the losing-weight perspective, but hopefully just one day won’t have too much of a negative impact on my (already large) waistline.
I’ve been seeing lots of photos and hearing about lots of people in the UK having snow, and it all looking lovely and fluffy. Here a few days ago I counted two whole flakes, but that is all we have seen up here. Today it is chucking it down with rain and howling a gale, and the most exciting thing we have done is get some stuff out of storage (without entirely planning where in the Stately Pile we would actually put it). I’m now trying to ignore HD’s tidying spurt, as eventually this means I shall have to tidy up some of the piles of random crappage of my stuff, that I’ve been putting off for ever.
So anyway, nothing to worry about if you don’t see me blogging for a bit – I just don’t want to bore either of my readers to death!
[By the way, my baptism of the keyboard did unfortunately turn out to have been a drowning. Fortunately my department is rubbish at throwing old stuff away, and I was able to swipe the keyboard from the PC of a student who finished her PhD nearly 2 years ago. I’m slightly put out that it doesn’t match the PC now, but I suppose I can’t really complain after my clumsiness!]
