Unbelievable we're half way through this term already and somehow or other everything seems to be going OK. All my four modules are up and running – in fact year 3 organic finishes next week. The three new research students in the group (one PhD, one MChem and one exchange student from Barcelona) seem to be doing good things, though it's been really tedious having to wait so long for chemicals to arrive, and my first year personal tutees seem to be passing their tests without much trouble.
At home we've just arranged for a nanny to look after Sam (9 months) on Saturday mornings for 4 hours. So, I'm looking forward to my first sleep in since 21 January soon!
Tomorrow night we're having friends round for fireworks and drinks. I'm in charge of the explosives so I'd better make sure the drinks do come after the fireworks.
Hope everyone out there has a top weekend and fingers crossed for the right result in that American sports match (baseball?) that Stu keeps going on about.

...since I've been encouraging everyone to use blogs that I wrote something here!
13 days into term and already four of my modules are under way – so bear with me if I'm looking a little frayed!
Anyway time to relax later watching England thrash (?) Azerbaijan (sp?) followed by a research group trip to the dogs. Assuming I have my usual luck don't ask me for a drink later on!!
