Again, I think I’m misleading you lovely people with false titles. But I am Lady Something or other, from Castle Whojamacallit! Brain: fried. Happy days!
I’ve decided that the best way to work on my dissertation, to take notes or revise is to sit myself in front of my laptop, pop something on iPlayer and get on with it with a cup of tea and slice of cake. Tea and cake makes the world a better place and having something like the Great British Bake Off in the background makes me happy because I don’t need to watch it closely to know what’s going on, but I love watching cookery programmes. Seriously, they’re like crack for me.
At the moment, I have sticky coconut cake that I made last night, Earl Grey and a book on the Old Norse images of women, including Valkyries – awesome women. Notes are coming on apace but I still need to do more work on gender theory to be able to discuss whether or not there is actually a gender binary in Old Norse society or not. But right now, I don’t need to worry about any of that because I’ve done important things today and I have cake. Monday is looking like a good day!
