A new chapter

August 5th, 2007

Hello again! Since I last wrote the final details of my PhD have slotted into place, and I’m now pretty happy with how it’s set up. There are a few minor things still to get sorted, but it looks like a goer. This means I’m committed to spending the next three years of my life in Cambridge, and so I’ll need somewhere to live. In fact, I’ve decided to buy a narrowboat – and managed to find one I like at a price I can afford. It’s being surveyed this week (probably on Wednesday) and after that I’ll be embarking on a four-week trip from the outskirts of Liverpool down to Cambridge and passing through quite a lot of the Midlands on the way. I’ll be keeping this blog updated with the progress!

    Congratulations on getting the PhD sorted out, and I hope that goes well. The narrowboat sounds pretty cool, and if we keep getting flooded then you’ll probably be better off than people in “conventional” homes :) How big is it compared to the one we used in 2005?

    Great tales here. Do you have an RSS for your blog? I’d like to add it to my reader.
