Well, today I turned 30. Despite my concerns over the last few weeks ("why haven't I achieved more by now?!"), it's actually been a very good day. I got into work at a reasonable time (9:45), which meant that I was able to get away at a sensible time in the evening, and then went out for dinner with some Durham friends, which was fun.

On the project front, my first progress report is due in tomorrow. I sent it to my supervisor last night, and he replied today saying "I have no issues with its length or content. [...] Keep up the good work!" So that certainly bodes well, and I'm definitely doing better than I was this time last year. For one thing, I actually have a program that does something. So, I'll drop that off in college tomorrow.

And speaking of computers, I had an email saying that I've passed the 6 practical ECDL modules; they're still waiting to get the results of the theory module, which is marked externally. So hopefully I can get my "passport" stamped soon.

Not much to report on the flat, as I haven't been down since the weekend. But I'll go there tomorrow to check on progress. I also need to pick up my post, since it's all being redirected there now (on the basis that I was intending to have moved in by now). So with luck I will have a new set of photos to upload tomorrow evening.

Happy Birthday !!

Hey, belated wishes - glad to know you had a nice day, and wish you a great year :-) !!

Coincidence - yesterday was also the b'day of Sergio, our classmate from King's who's now also my colleague here.

Good to know the project's going well, and all the best for the last two months of it.
