Panic Over (hopefully)…

February 15, 2010

Last week was the most disgustingly busy week of my life which is why posting has been light (ok then, non-existent] over the last couple of weeks.

I had to present my work in two seminars last week in addition to having a hundred billion other stressful and scary things to do.

But I SURVIVED! Everything went as well as could be expected despite my losing/forgetting/ eating everything in sight. Am sure I have eaten my own body weight in study “provisions” and comfort food.

I don’t say this very often, but I am actually proud of myself for getting through this relatively unscathed and with (most of) my sanity intact. I think I did a pretty good job of fooling people into thinking I wasn’t terrified and more importantly, that I knew what I was talking about.

I rewarded myself this weekend by sleeping and eating, sleeping and eating, sleeping and eating -mmmmm.

Right now, I am feeling 3 stone heavier but (imagining here that self-worth can be quantified) 3 stone happier and I’m gonna make the most of it before I dare to peek round the next corner where Disaster is almost certainly lurking, custard pie in hand….

Aaaagh!
