I am, honestly, sorry to anyone who's been faithfully checking this silly blog in the hopes I've written something new. My supervisors have said the U word - "upgrade" - and so I'm working full tilt on proving myself a viable academic.
But tonight I'm sitting up in the departmental work room, and I can see the west face of the Minster all lit up through the window. A few minutes ago, the bells tolled the hours.
England is a frustrating, silly place sometimes. But I love it here and when I leave, I'll miss the church bells.
P.S. No luck at SSHRC this year.
