This, in effect, is as much as I had to say to my supervisors in a telephone conference last Wednesday. I was jolly glad I didn’t travel all the way to Loughborough for a 25 min meeting where I was gently chastised and told to get on with it.

The daft thing is that I had done, and blogged, some of the thinking needed (see the previous post to this one); but in the busyness of Everything Else that’s happening, I had totally forgotten I’d posted this stuff.

If that’s not a salutory lesson, I don’t know what is.

It seems today that my mental machinery is working fairly well and I have for the first time come up with a good and clear statement of aims for the project which I have recorded under the ‘Project aims – July 2008’ page.
