It's best to do them asap after the viva (and having been sent them), possibly the examiners discussions/comments will still be fresh in your mind.
I left mine for months and it caused a few problems with moving (country) for my current job.
You've basically passed, get the corrections out of the way and make it official with a piece of paper from your graduate office (or similar)....
Florence, I think there are more women in this position than you realise. Like someone said earlier, there is never the right time to have a baby, my best friend even advised me that having an "accident" might be better. The problem is, as educated women we spend quite a lot of time preparing our "nest". Yes three years feels like a lot of time but it will go quicker than you can ever imagine - think of it as nest building time - you want to bring your child up in the best way you can, right?
I've had lazier students than this.
I would say something along the lines of that researching and finding important references is part of the assignment and these are very useful skills to develop.
I had one guy who wanted me to do the assignment for him - I told on him and he got into trouble muhahahaha
Oh Lord. I wish I hadn't read that - it makes me realise nothing has changed.
I don't get to work until 10 (so I can sleep until 9 if I want - thats a lie in for me).
It's Friday afternoon, I'm working from home (I have that flexability) and I'm still in my PJs.
I can go to town if I want - but don't due to still being in PJs
I still post on PGF about rubbish.
At least I get paid to do this! (Just want to add I don't work in academia).
