Greetings to everyone. I hope you’re all settling into this strange new decade we’ve found ourselves in. Since I last posted I’ve had a small personal crisis that’s stopped me from getting any blogging done. Long story short, I’m now back living in the north-east of England (anyone in the area, feel free to drop me a line), and spending my days at Newcastle university library trying to get my thesis done (it’s going well at the moment…). Given this, I don’t really have the time to dedicate to one of my usual comprehensive blog posts, so I’m going to try out something a bit unusual (or perhaps more usual for other people) and just write up a few ideas with minimal context, for those of you who’ve been following my work here on the blog.
