General life update

Interview and seminar in Edinburgh seemed to go well last Thursday/Friday, but judging from the ominous silence from my phone, I think that it’s safe to assume that someone else was offered the job. Time to start digging a tunnel, now that the guards have found the glider, perhaps?

The only downside to the evening was that was looking absolutely stunning (vintage 1950s dark blue lace dress and little black cocktail hat) and I consequently failed to get any photos of her in her finery.
