I just have to announce this here: I'm getting married! I took my girlfriend hiking up into the Australian Alps and proposed to her on the (romantically-named) Mount Feathertop! Huzzah!
In other news, I've settled into a good routine on my long commute to work every morning and my thesis writing-up is coming along nicely. I guess the thing to do now is to try and get as much writing done as possible before we have kids ...
So... did anyone here invite their supervisor to their wedding? I think I'd like mine to come along, but I don't know what the other guests would make of him! (He's a tad eccentric and a world apart from my non-academic friends and family).
I got married in my 2nd year and me and hubs (who's also doing a PhD) both had our supervisors and other colleagues there - as we invited other people in our departments it would have been weird not having our sups there too. - we did put them all together so they could talk shop if they wanted and not freak out the other guests though. My hubby's family are typical honest-tradesmen types, they talk football or swap offensive jokes, so we tried to keep the two groups separate :$
