Today I finished my thesis, oh happy day!

13,638 words and two years later, it is done. I hand it in today, and get my life back. Just in time, as The Teenager and The Boyfriend are sick to death of it, and me, almost. Champagne tonight!

More soon,

x Sunday

The Teenager Countdown

In less than 24 hours The Teenager returns after an incredible seven month trip abroad. The calm before the storm, I am bracing myself for her return. I live in hope that travel has broadened her views and expanded her tolerance. Maybe even taught her to appreciate all that she has here at home. We shall see!

The Boyfriend (formerly The Lodger!) appears somewhat nervous as all my friends ask if he has met The Teenager yet, and said helpful things like 'wait until you do'. He is now ensconced in his own apartment, and we will hopefully manage to commute between mine and his. It has been a very long time since I last had a boyfriend 'sleep-over', and will no doubt present new challenges with TT.

The thesis is growing slowly, and I have just been invited to join a new gallery, AND be their exhibitor in a major international exhibition. I am so excited, and it is such a huge honour. The small hitch is that I must inform my old gallery that I am leaving. It has been on the cards, for me, for a while, and this is such a great opportunity.

More from the front-line soon, no doubt.
