I’m very sorry about my sudden and unexplained absence for the last two weeks. Mid-August saw me suddenly and persistently ill, meaning my activities between the 16th and 23rd of August are handily summed up in this picture:
The week after my halting recovery — last week — was spent frantically running around in the lab, guiltily trying to catch up on all the things I should have been doing when I was lying around at home. It has taken me a while to get back up to speed with all of my research-related responsibilities, as well as getting my body to respond to my demands as diligently as usual. I am definitely now better (unless this cold that my partner is carrying around gets the best of me next), and will do my best to resume regular posting.
As a coincidental treat, I have been working on a guest post for #RealTimeChem’s #RealTimeChemInFocus series. It is a wordy monster about the day to day happenings in a week of my life — last week, in fact. It is just about ready to be sent off, and once it is published (unless deemed horribly inappropriate or something), I will edit this post to provide a link to it. I will most definitely also post about it on Twitter. Keep an eye out!
EDITED: Here is the link to the guest blog post. Hope you like it!
Thank you for your patience.
As always, I am available in the comments, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter as @Lady_Beaker.
