but shows how I stand in relation to Sherpa...
Firstly, blog news - after seeing some alternative centuries around the blogosphere, and chatting to my friend at work, I have decided to shift my century a bit. I'll now be doing the past 100 years - that is, 1914-2013. I found the first years so difficult to fill last time, and I also missed the 21st century - this way I can keep myself more content, and still have a great overview of a century. And, of course, 1914 is not an insignificant year.
Secondly, life news - I had my DPhil viva yesterday, and have passed with minor corrections! I think I'm not technically a doctor until I've done those corrections, had them approved, and got a piece of paper from the English faculty in my hands - but to all intents and purposes I am now Dr. Thomas. Gosh, how strange that sounds! I think it might take me a lot longer to get used to it than everyone else.
