Thought I’d keep this as a separate post from the previous one otherwise it would be ridiculously long
Apart from unpacking, getting over jet lag, doing grocery shopping, etc., the first week back in Aus has actually been quite busy!
Firstly, Rhiannon is back from England, doing a similar trip to the one I just finished, so we held one of our famous “pies” nights – this one was Sci-Pie mark 2. The pies sported were a vegetable lasagne pie and a rainbow pie. Pics of both can be seen here. Ben, Stewart, and I also put on a very large brew (69 litres of a pleasant american style pale ale). Hopefully this will be ready for some sort of birthday celebration I might have, so I can provide a reasonable quantity of alcohol for those who come More info on the brew site.
The gym has been visited twice – those extra kilos/pounds put on over Christmas were probably worth it at the time, but I’m certainly feeling it now having barely exercised at all for the previous 5 weeks. Time to get back on the healthy eating SERIOUSLY!
As for work – the first week back was taken at a slow pace to get back in to it. I have to say I’ve almost finished my second year now, and It’s dawned on me that I only really have one year left. The pressure is on, and it’s time to get some work done, and some more good results. I also found out I’m off to (finally) do some more neutron experiments at ANSTO the week before my birthday so that will be… intense but hopefully worthwhile.
That’s about it for now. It’s Australia day on Tuesday and I will be heading to Rhiannon’s house for BBQs, drinking, and messing around in the pool. Should be good
