*smile* A Saturday morning unaccompanied by hangover, or by exhaustion. This is goooood :)

Spoke to my Mum on the phone for ages last night, the family is OK. Apparently my brother starts work with Microsoft on Monday *ick* ;) Grandma is better (she'd been in hospital for a suspected stomach ulcer). My father put his back out coughing, but is recovering and is stressed by having to do teaching again this term (he's a university lecturer, but was on sabbatical last year).

I should probably ring/text/email my brother and make sure he knows when my viva is, text is probly best coz I dunno if his uni email address is still active, and if I ring him we'll talk about thesis writing (he's doing it too) and I don't wanna think about that ;)

Normal Saturday stuff to do today, then a bit of work, then we're off out to dinner :) Hopefully Jonathan and Becky are coming too, and I'm not sure if we're going for a curry or to Pizza Express, but it'll be nice :)
Current Mood: cheerfulcheerful

Hasn't Dave been working with M$ before? So it's not entirely a new start?

Yeah - I think it was between his research assistantship and his PhD studentship ... but I can't quite remember for sure. It was definitely just a 3 month placement though.

This one is a real job, I think.

Heh... when I was talking to Bruce today he said something along the lines of "and I'm sure J and Pling were both nursing hangovers this morning, and then went to Vagabonds." Guess he was wrong on at least one count :)
