|Pretty much sums it up for me.|
I've also been spending a lot more time on campus (instead of commuting into London for a few days every week). It is nicer in the summer, I'm at least usually warm in my room. If the weather held up, and if I wanted to, I can go for walks/runs. There still aren't as many people around as at the start of the (academic) year, but people are starting to come back.
55 days left to thesis deadline. I've got some preliminary results though, so I'm feeling a lot better, and actually have something to write about now. Need to make sure I'm not getting complacent and slacking off though. Have spent a few nice weekends fossil hunting in Lyme Regis (Dorset), hiking in Brecon Beacons (Wales), gonna go climb in Portland (Dorset) this weekend, and a fair amount of cooking/baking. Not just everyday cooking of my meals, but decent, presentable food for others.

|So many foals and lambs about Brecon Beacons :)|

Quite looking forward to going home, if just for a short week, at the end of next month.
