Looking ahead, the boss is very keen for me to stay in touch, and maybe do some more work for them in the future on an ad-hoc basis, so I'll see how that goes. I've now got two weeks before the MSc course starts, and the big thing between now and then is moving house. I'll certainly be glad once that's out of the way - I've spent the last couple of weeks feeling like I'm killing time waiting for each landmark to come along.
So, in two weeks I'll be in the new house, on my new course, living my new life. Stay tuned :)
