.... wasn't what I would call exactly quirky, but these Jimi teddies may be! They are my take on the word of the day - quirky - on HSMS and were part of a wedding present that Tim and I received when we got married. I just love them! I think they're so cute, with their wee shock of black hair! lol
Tim is seriously thinking about giving up his PhD research. He is getting no support at all from the Uni. I'm not talking about financial support - he doesn't get that anyway, being self-funded - I'm talking about the fact that he is a hard rock geologist ..... but all the tutors and markers are soft rock geologists. So, whenever he has to write a report or whatever, they send it back to him, to rewrite in a way that they can understand!!!! Yet, the soft rock PhD researchers don't have to write in a way that hard rock tutors would understand. Oh no. It's not fair and he is SO dispirited. If the Uni can't get a hard rock tutor to mark papers, then why, oh why, did they accept Tim for his PhD research in that field? I tell you, it makes my blood boil. He has worked SO hard to get where he is and now it looks as though it will have all been for nothing.
