Life is good :D

In the last week, three very cool things have happened to me: 

1) My PhD thesis is now handed in, and I have a copy on my shelf to cheer me up when I feel miserable. 

2) I will be moving to Milton Keynes in roughly four weeks to start my new job as a Credit Risk Analyst for a high-street bank. They seem lovely to work for and I think I’ll be happy there. 

3) I am now engaged. I got down on one knee and asked TractorGirl if she would do me the honour of being her civil partner, and she said yes. It’s the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done – makes a PhD viva seem trivial! 

My remaining time in Durham will be a bit mad. This Thursday and Friday I’m dragging TractorGirl down south to help me flat hunt, which will be great because I’ve found student houses by word of mouth and have never had to deal with a letting agent before. It seems like there is a never-ending list of things to do, but it will be worth it 🙂 

The engagement ring being all shiny!


My PhD thesis!

  1. I lived in MK for 18 years and really liked it. If you want any info about the place (which estates to avoid etc…) let me know…Although I did leave 5 years ago, so things may have moved on since then. It has a good cultural life (I was particularly into amateur dramatics) and lots to recommend it.
    I hope you like the place as much as I did. (Although I never thought the shopping centre was that great!)

  2. I may well take you up on that. I think I’m going to live in the centre, so I can walk to work (which will be 2mins from Central Station). Any places to avoid in the centre? I’m up for finding new stuff to try my hand at. I’ll drop you an e-mail sometime 🙂
