  • I had a successful trip to Woking today, saw the material I needed to, and can now polish off a project because of it. The trip would have been slightly faster had there not been a broken rail at Wimbledon. One of the women supervising me was particularly lovely - we bonded over Cardiff historians and outgrowing Radio 1.
  • I don't have time to respond to all the social memes making the rounds right now - memories of people, how we met. But I do remember, and we did meet.
  • My defense will be on December 14th.

There is no way I'm going to be flying in the night before my defense. I don't want to be jetlagged while doing something so stressful! I'll arrive a bunch of days earlier - five days earlier is looking likely at the moment.

No ... you're not supposed to panic!! You're supposed to feel all self-confidant 'cos we all know you're going to pass!!

Do you know what time it is set for? I shall stop and think of you, attempting to send waves of calm to help you marshall your thoughts...

10 am. I think I'd do better in the afternoon, but I'd only spend the morning worrying, so I figured it was better to get it over and done with.

Hurray! Unfortunately I'm going to miss you. I'm headed out of town on the 11th; part of the whole, get away, see fiancee and parents gig. But I know you'll do wonderfully.

I'm not flying in the night or day of the defense (a Wednesday) - I'll probably arrive the previous weekend.

Come in on Friday or Saturday so that I can see you (the 11th is Sunday)! And do remember that the Yarmouth Rd. B&B is always open for business, especially lovely guests like yourself. (and you can have my room after I leave, Cinnamon is coming with me too)

How seldom do the words 'successful trip' and 'Woking' occur in the same sentence.
