I’ve been busy.
Busy at work – loads of persistent bugs with a system we upgraded and a whole set of Data Centre move work. Just been manic frankly.
Busy with studies. Last Friday I submitted my final portfolio with all my work in it the t’s crossed and the i’s dotted and the various references all correct. Well I hope so anyway. It’s being checked over as I type and I’ve a week more to get any last minute hassles dealt with. Then I’m over to just needing to build up my hours to finally get my diploma.
What else is going on? Hugely proud – Daughter-of-Furtheron today messaged me from her holiday in the Canaries saying she’d got formal confirmation that she has graduated with with a 1st class honours in her BSc. So proud of her. She is now going on to do an MRES. What is that? You ask… It’s a Masters by Research bit like a mini PhD in one year where you do a research project and write a big dissertation. Also her department was so impressed with her BSc final year dissertation that she is currently (well when back from her holiday) trying to redraft it in a form that is suitable for it to be submitted to a journal for publication.
With my son currently jetting all over the place in his role as a post doctoral researcher in magnetosphere’s and my daughter also with an option to follow a similarly impressive academic route or to move into some suitable employment I think I feel a substantial part of my role as a parent is complete.
