A New Year

Hello!  Eight months?  I have not written a plumbean in eight months?  That is awful.  But then, it has been a fairly nutty eight months.  It has been a wonderful, stressful, exhilarating, difficult, nomadic, romantic, scribbling, fantastic eight months.  In the last eight months I have:

Become an aunt
Written a ton
Gotten engaged
Deleted a ton
Moved back to London
Written some more
Visited my first student who is now at my old college at Oxford
Researched a ton
Moved back to Hawaii
Transcribed the research
Moved back to London again
Checked the research
Walked all over the city
Re broken my foot
Written and written and written
