Erm, hello

*sidles in rather shame faced*

Blimey!

I just got hit on the head and realised that I have not updated this blog since Hammertime was in the charts!! You'll never guess what happened.....*thinks furiously* erm, my hands were chopped off and I couldn't blog because I was waiting for my bionic ones to arrive? Nope, your not going to be believing that are you? Ok, I shall just throw myself to the floor *thump* and beg thy forgiveness.....

Truth is that I have been flat out, like a lizard drinking, with all things Uni. I am spending so much time at the computer reading stuff, researching stuff and writing stuff (yep, stuff is the technical term) that by the end of the day I just don't want to spend another minute in front of the computer. Seriously, at the moment I am working on a presentation which will provide an analysis of Thailands HIV/AIDS Policy (which needs to be related back to policy theories...yawn), researching Britian's Policy on Patient and Public Engagement, trying to write a research plan which, in theory, will form the basis for my dissertation next year, coming up with some form of a Questionnaire that needs to be trialled, writing a learning log (yes, another one *sigh*) and outlining how I plan to research a community/topic using secondary data only. Oh, and I am also having to get my dissertation topic agreed (which is proving harder than i had anticipated) and have been advised that my current plan might not be the best way forward but have not been given any guidance on what research methods may be better. Aaaaaarrrrrggggggg!!!

In saying all that...I really must try and make some time to come here so *places hand on heart* I solemnly swear that I will make more of an effort to blog, and visit you lovely lot, more often (that is until I lose the plot completely and the nice men in the white coats come to take me away!)
