My back felt particularly good today - only brief periods of sciatica and backache. Huzzah! Hopefully this means things are progressing; I'm hoping the next few days will bring more joy. Especially more writing - there've been days where I've been unable to concentrate on writing at all because of the coming-and-going pain, but now it's pretty much settled I'm intent on bashing out as much more thesis as I can. I'd like to have a reasonably solid draught of the methodology and methods chapter for Andy to read over before the weekend, and since he's doing a lot of travelling about the place from the 15th until about September I'm going to have to take advantage of his time while he's here!
Other than that... quiet days, mostly. Mother's Day today, and my little nephew's first birthday party yesterday, a very pleasant do at my sister's place. She and her husband had perhaps 30 or 40 people around to celebrate, so a big event! The lad's walking around most of the time now; it's still mind-blowing to see how quickly he grows. Time really is flying.
