|This photo is a year or two old,
but shows how I stand in relation to Sherpa…
Firstly, blog news – after seeing some alternative centuries around the blogosphere, and chatting to my friend at work, I have decided to shift my century a bit. I’ll now be doing the past 100 years – that is, 1914-2013. I found the first years so difficult to fill last time, and I also missed the 21st century – this way I can keep myself more content, and still have a great overview of a century. And, of course, 1914 is not an insignificant year.
Secondly, life news – I had my DPhil viva yesterday, and have passed with minor corrections! I think I’m not technically a doctor until I’ve done those corrections, had them approved, and got a piece of paper from the English faculty in my hands – but to all intents and purposes I am now Dr. Thomas. Gosh, how strange that sounds! I think it might take me a lot longer to get used to it than everyone else.
