It’s May and I’ve finally got some time to give you my long overdue update from March! It was a hectic month and since then I have been able to catch up with most of my friends in person so the urgency for writing the update decreased over time. Still, it’s nice to show you some photos and tell you what’s been going down!
The update on my adventures from March will have to be postponed a bit more! I’ve just moved apartments and I’m about to go on a long Easter holiday so I don’t have much time between settling into the new place and getting experiments done, grants in, conference applications and papers written at work. The update will get done!
Meanwhile, here’s a pic of a luxury hot cross bun from M&S on one of the hospital plates at work:
Mmm, gonna buy more of those! Have a good Easter everyone!
February started off with me coming down with flu and ended with me only cycling 10 out of 28 days (150 km for my Feb total). I know, I know. I already get ‘bike-shamed’ (a term I’m using to describe making someone feel bad for not cycling) by a colleague so I don’t need it from you too. My bike is still good. No punctures, no more lights lost but the chain is looking a bit rusty and started to squeak while I’m cycling! Eek! I’m just googling how to fix it and it’s going to be faff! The whole bike desperately needs a clean up from salt and dirt. I’m going to save this job for a nice spring weekend and I’m hoping we’ll get this in March!
January spanned 5 weeks and it feels like it’s been a long long time since it was Christmas! I tried not to do so much outside of work as one of my new year goals was to save up but now having written it all up, I think I managed a fair bit!
Happy new year! Wishing you, my lovely friends and interested readers, a successful and healthy 2017! Sorry my December update is much later than usual but it has just been Christmas. Here’s what’s been going down in my December!
In November it all came together and I realised that maybe I have planned to much. Definitely, because I only had 90 DKK left in the account until payday! One day, one day I will be a real adult and have money left in my account at the end of the month. Anyway, it was totally worth it as I forged some new friendships, dined at two Michelin-starred restaurants, had a couple of really really good science days, learnt some new things and submitted another fellowship application!
October kick started with a weekend in Manchester to discuss papers and to get some loving from my boyfriend’s cat! There was also a weekend in London for catch ups, birthday and engagement parties. I also fitted in a visit from a Manchester friend, tried a few new restaurants, and made some progress at work! It was getting really dark here – last Thursday I cycled to and from work in the dark. Those 2° difference in sun angle compared to Manchester makes a difference! But now the clocks have gone back and the mornings are not too bad anymore.
