The Readers #3 The Wolf Road

Book number 3 since I joined The Readers Bookclub was The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis. Chosen by Nikki it seemed like a book I wouldn’t normally pick up but isn’t that the joy of a bookclub?

Craft Gin Club #2

So I have learned that waiting 3 months for my quarterly Gin subscription was a lot more difficult than I thought. After seeing other members of the Craft Gin Club getting their gin on months I hadn’t subscribed to I was so excited when November arrived! It’s gin month! My wait was extended however after a ridiculous mix up with Royal Mail but finally my parcel arrived and boy was it worth the wait!

TGIFL Friday...

Thank goodness it’s FUN LUNCH FRIDAY. I allude to my previous post on a few things I have learned during my first year of PhD life, can read that here. I learned that a PhD can be fun but sometimes you need to bring the fun so to speak. If you are having a particularly rough week it is good to have something to look forward to. So I welcome you to Fun Lunch Fridays. A monthly occurrence-conveniently on payday-for myself and Elanor from Tiggy Poes and Flutterbys as a way to increase the work morale.

What being a PhD student has taught far

The leaves are falling and the air is getting cooler. It is autumn time. October is here and it’s time to look forward to Halloween, Guy Fawkes and of course Christmas. For me October marks the end of my first year as a PhD student and the beginning of year two. So rather than looking forward to the exciting festivities to come please stick with me as I look back on the past year and reflect on all I have learned…or not.

Ladies Who Lab: The Alphabet, A is for…

Astronaut! I love this series as it’s an amazing way to showcase the fascinating females in the world of Science. Usually I ask people I know to guest post and share with my readers why they love Science, what they do and how they got there. When Elanor bought me The Mighty Women of Science Alphabet Book by Clare Forrest I thought it a perfect addition to this monthly series.

Walk to Winterfell, Drink the Guinness and Meet a Leprechaun

After being invited to a wedding in Dublin as a plus one I decided to not waste the opportunity and spend a few days living the tourist lifestyle. I don’t think anyone could leave Dublin without a tour of the famous Guinness Factory, experience the wonderful world of Game of Thrones and meet a leprechaun.
