I promised myself I wasn’t going to be listening to Trumps news, but since his inauguration that’s it is the news. It is a big distraction to my real challenge: I got confirmation in less that a month!! In two weeks I have to handle my confirmation report for review!!! F()k and guess where I am at the moment: having a great holiday in Day Dream Island. Best news no fights so far with Mr G, but plenty of nagging from boys: life is beautiful.
The day is slowly arriving, but my supervisors are nowhere to be found. Frustrating. I got the time and they desert me. Boys are w mum, aircon at home and work cruising, perfect time for PhD work, only problem: supervisors MIA!!
Another day wasted, another day without any input from my so called supervisors. Painful.
I was meant to work over the weekend, but instead I had a relaxing time with the boys. Fantastic having the cleaners on Sat morning, it made a big difference to my well-being and the family. Yesterday had a good family day, went to church, had great lunch, went swimming and then Ale cooked dinner. Great weekend! Sadly, no PhD work, it was meant to be a working weekend, but no getting any feedback is killing me softly. More than two months without supervisors guidance is hard.
Great night with the girls! Good dinner and wine taking about life, dreams and love. Little work on confirmation as no feedback yet from supervisors. At least I finished proposal to government ready to be send, just waiting on some input.
Today I had a CT scan on my back and we’ll hopefully find out what’s the problem in my back. Also got new glasses, kind of made up with Mr G, organised cleaning for tomorrow and bought boys school shoes. Work and study nothing. Tomorrow another day.
Guess what?! Today was my first day at work for 2017, only one small thing: I wasn’t meant to be here yet!! I guess that’s how much I enjoyed being at home when soo messy. It was good in a way as o felt that I did some confirmation work during the holidays. Today I asked supervisors for feedback yet again, also proposed two dates for confirmation and drafted a research proposal for DAF. Small wins. As I was writing I realised that I got so much to do in my methods section. This week I will look into other thesis and check on their methodologies. By the weekend I should have some idea of where I would like to go.
In other equally important matters, I am officially the fattest I have ever been: 70kg!! My goal by end of month to be 68kg. I will do this by cutting alcohol, reducing lovely pastries, more veggies and eating out much less. I also commit to at least walk 9000 steps and keep the deep water running. Promises to myself.
We got aircon!! What a difference it makes to our living. Yesterday I was soo hat I couldn’t even move, and this afternoon I roasted a chicken! I must be grateful to Mr Grumpy as he did the work.
Tomorrow I am going back to work, to the everyday routine. Great, I am kind of looking forward to it.
Happy new year! My last post was lost, but it mentioned Mr G moody on New Year’s, the terrible heat, the ‘cerota’ word and my resolution to never cook on New Years while Mr G still with us. Xmas different as I celebrate with the whole family and loved see the happy children and my happy mum. I don’t do Xmas to celebrate with Mr G, I do Xmas despite Mr G.
My other equally important resolution is to get confirmed. Confirmed.
