And *that's* how we do it around here :)
Permission has been granted!
A bit of a lacklustre event after all the hard work going into it to to be perfectly honest with you. A few phone meetings for consults and a LOT of writing are now my future...but my research work is declared done and I now get to officially write it up in thesis form, in it's approved, outlined form, for review and defence.
The relaxing sigh I just breathed out can be heard for miles I'm sure :)
