Best laid plans….Posted: February 19, 2014
This week’s plan was to setup a few practice experiments in the lab. If they went well (of course they would have) I could have set up the real experiments next week and have my ‘n’ of 4 done by the end of March ready to submit the figures in a grant application for June – voila!
What actually happened: my daughter caught a D&V bug from nursery and passed it onto her parents over the weekend. So, instead of being at work I’ve been looking after her and waiting for her to be clear of infection for 48 hours. I did, however, manage to venture out and attend NCCPE’s (@NCCPE) public engagement workshop at Arnolfini, Bristol, for a few hours while Granny looked after the toddler.
I’m glad I went. Networked with minimal effort (sat next to the right person for lunch by accident) and organised another meeting to work together in the near future.
However, I still want to get the experiments done so the plan for the weekend is to setup the practice assays and then go for my weekly run (Bristol 10k training) while aforementioned toddler goes to’Dad’s group’.
