Back to routine?

Not much to report.  I am still not back into a ‘Leicester’ routine.  To get me back to work, therefore, I have decided to work my way through the intimidating pile of filing and reading I’ve accumulated over the last year and do a couple of book reviews.  Then, after all that, I will try and get back to some writing.  My plan is to write up a section (not a chapter!) every three months or so, and then I’ll spend the last six months of my registration putting them together to form an overall narrative and, thus, identifying any gaps in my research.  Here’s hoping!

But, my top priority is to stop stressing about it all.  To relax, to enjoy the process again.  Of course, this means I might end up taking a little longer to complete, but – quite honestly – my mental health is more important!  Time to start being a little kinder to myself methinks.
