The Weekend Blog
18th October 2014
Being stuck in a peat blog, coring for samples of peat, is never a good time to discover that your wellingtons are no longer waterproof.
Cold, damp feet on a cold, damp day is not exactly what you want when you are doing field work.
None the less, I’ve purchased a new pair of wellies in time for our field trip to a river next week. Primark’s finest. Let’s just hope they’re waterproof.
This week I celebrated 10 years of my new hip socket and 5 years of being with Tyrone. I also convinced myself that I do want to work towards a PhD after I graduate but I will still probably take a year out to work and fully decide on what I want to do. Perhaps I’ll be dying to get back into education, but maybe I’ll be happy working and finally earning some real money. Who knows?!
It was nice to catch up with all my friends from my course now they’re back from Greece. Of course, they made me jealous with their beautiful photos but one of my friends bought me back a bracelet which was really sweet of her to think about me.
I am dedicating this weekend to completing the literature review for my research project/dissertation, and then next week to filling in my ethical forms for collecting data. University is certainly tougher this year but I’m taking it all in my stride. I’m trying to be a happier person than I was this time last year.
