Back into the swing of things…

It has been a long time since I blogged here, for many reasons. I have various writing deadlines, I am trying to develop future projects to the point where I can submit them to funding competitions, I have a number of professional projects that I want to see through at Leeds which have taken up my time. Plus I had a full teaching load and a demanding admin role this year. This is all fairly standard stuff, although it takes up a lot of ‘mental bandwidth’ to keep all of those things going – so any upset to that (say, your union going on strike for several weeks in the middle of the year) can really throw a spanner in the works. Anyway, I’m feeling a bit more settled (although no less busy) after the summer, and so I hope to get back into things, including giving this blog a bit more TLC. Watch this space…
