Getting back in the saddle

After a lovely two week break at home with my parents, including a fun trip round the country visiting friends over the New Year weekend, I arrived back in Cambridge today. Not much seems to have changed — I have only been away for two weeks(!), and it still seems quite peaceful and student-free so I am planning to get back to serious thesis work next week.

Over the holidays, I:

  • caught up with my old school friends, many of whom I haven’t seen since this time last year!
  • almost cleared my inbox (although it seems to be rapidly filling up again already!!)
  • added Joel on Software to my daily reading list;
  • read a good book by Jasper Fforde
  • didn’t think about my thesis once. 🙂

All-in-all, an excellent holiday I think.

Happy new year, everyone!
