yea baby! chapter 2 is finished and sent to supervisors, I have surpassed goal 1! I also have absolutely no idea if it's written properly but whatever! I'm sure I'll find out soon enough if I have to fix it! Goal 2 for the day, find a website to check primers and see what i need to order for my lab work!

lol, i have already received an email from one of my sups with a list of things to change! He still hasn't even given feedback for the 1st chapter which he received at the start of Feb!! :-) Apparently it's all about the timing of sending mails then....

wow well done algaequeen. I got an email from my sup about my methods chapter, which basically said apparently I have different epistemological (sp!?) stances for each study! News to me!

I've just had lunch, walked dog and spent £20 on online lottery instant cards :$ so back to work for me!

Oh, now I'm dreading whatever response I get to my lit review from my supervisors!

I've only got my conclusion and references left to do now. And two and a half hours to go.

4/4 done which is half way at 20/40! 8-)

Going to go and wash my hair so I don't have to bother tomorrow - I'm leaving the house! I'm actually going to the office, so the day will be wasted :-( but am going to read sup's changes through tonight and make a start on the CV.

Woo, people are making progress, that's great.

I just emailed off my literature review to my supervisors, so now I'm free!! Yay! I promised myself a day off tomorrow (I have some householdy type stuff to do anyway, and have been working flat out for a few weeks) so I'm going to relax tonight and enjoy feeling like I've actually achieved something. And then back to it on Thursday!

whoo!! go sneaks!! you're doing a grand job today! (up) and everyone else, we are all still here so as far as I'm concerned we are doing great!
Just realised that the stuff i have to order could take weeks to come, so that's going to REALLY set me back a bit...ah hoo, nothing I can do except get it all ordered sharpish and plod on with other stuff! I have until the end of June to get all my lab work totally completely done so I'm staying positive that all will be fine or I'll cry! So that's Goal 2 done, next goal 3 is to check papers for primers.....shouldn't take too long!

Only just managed to get Goals 3 and 4 done, but at least they are done! Managed to write 1,800 words today which I'm really pleased about!

Goal 5- go to Asda

Goal 6- Start reading interview info until other half comes home and starts demanding his tea!

What a great idea for a thread, thanks Sneaks. Could really do with this at the moment. Life meant I'd to take some time off phd but trying to get back in the swing of things now. Got my one goal of reading through recent journals to catch up done so I'm pleased. I need to read the chosen papers more closely now but I'll save that for tomorrow at the office. Like you my in-office days are usually a complete waste but skimming articles might be ok I hope.
