(belated) happy holidays

I've been absent for a while: a beautiful snow-white Christmas has been and gone, and now, all of a sudden, it's almost a whole new decade. December has been an insanely busy month for me: I spent most of it either being ill or working on completing my masters dissertation, which I finally submitted on 23 December. Hurrah!

Now the dissertation is at long last completed, I'm anticipating a delightful 2010 including lots of lovely and frivolous things, and not much reading of serious books or indeed learning of any kind. And I'm also looking forward to spending more time here.

Hope everyone has had a jolly holiday - and happy new year!

Congratulations on turning in your dissertation - well done. A long period of rest and enforced silliness is clearly in order.

Hope to see you back in Manchester soon, and happy 2010!

Congratulations. It's a wonderful moment, though I was too exhausted to appreciate the joy of submission at the time.

Sorry you've been ill, and welcome back.

Thanks Kate and Vole! It's a huge relief to have it finished.
