Well, that was an interesting couple of weeks.
Work went crazy busy for a bit as we tried to get a report out to a client. It got even busier when the response came back asking questions such as "Do the people on this project really have PhDs?" and "Do you know the first thing about what we want you to do?" and "Are you capable of achieving even the most basic requirements of this project?" They were Not Happy. So then there were rounds of meetings with everyone and his dog; there were people tripping over themselves to apologize; there was, of course, even more work for us.
I tried hard to get to the Southampton knitting group for the past two Thursdays, but each time it turned out I had to stay at work way late.
The Limey has been great even though he started work this week himself. He's gotten home before me and starts cooking, so I can just collapse when I get in.
There's one more week of instrument time, during which I have to cram in as many experiments as I physcially can. Then it'll be data analysis time, and then it'll be report time again. I'm looking forward to Christmas break, I tell you.
