DS2 had to have a minecraft creeper face cake.

I tried minecraft but it made me seasick. Buffy did you feed your palm trees bonemeal? Apparently that makes them grow enormous. Like real life. grin I told DSs that they will have to be able to identify all those types of tree in real life or else ...

The DC have built amazing structures (and traps for dropping unsuspecting villagers into lava hmm). I can see its appeal. But it does make me feel seasick and I can't kill any of the animals without feeling squeamish. blush I think I'd probably dispatch zombies and TNT everything else quite happily though.

Buffy I hope you have written lots and lots. I, on the other hand, am feeling really stressed after amending 5 pages of my student's writing. I am going to go and soak myself in the swimming pool now. But my waterproof watch has run out of battery. I'll see if DS1 will let me wear his.

Hows it going Buffy et al? I really have to finish the present chapter before traveling on wednesday or I'll lose my train of thought

Ooh, sorry, I had not realized you knew your deadline yet. Good luck! You can do it.

CaptChaos Fri 09-May-14 13:43:36

Surely late nights as deadlines loom closer is traditional?

Good luck!

Buffy's cheer team

A stern cheer team, I wouldn't want to disappoint them

1st July is a kind of deadline for me too as we're going on holiday on the 2nd.

I'm just back from a conference which has both enthused me and left me feeling that my project is a little out of date. And a book review I did last week sent me into deep depression as I realised that some of the values I was looking for in that study are not indeed present in my own shock sad

Go Buffy! I hope you are planning a relaxing weekend away from the thesis....

The writing-up period feels like a distant fantasy to me, until I remind myself that I am technically almost a third of the way through my PhD. Where did the last year go?! I sometimes find it slightly hard to believe that I will get all of the research and writing done in the requisite time. So, I definitely salute anyone who is actually about to finish. grin

New week new resolve. How's it going Buffy? I have made some interim deadlines and will work evenings if I don't make them. I can;t come back from holiday to more of the same

ha ha I have never had much patience for plans so no danger here. I remember someone at uni tried to learn Arabic by learning the dictionary from the beginning
