When I started this website, I was very excited about finishing my doctoral research, get my PhD, and start doing more film and theatre. As it happens, this was more optimistic than I realised. I wouldn't get my PhD until nine months later in January 2017 and, despite finding a job that promised great flexibility and interesting projects starting the same month, that turned out to be one of the most stressful situations I've ever found myself in and, to put it simply, not good.
As of two days ago, I no longer work there and have found a new job working part-time doing exactly what I wanted to do. In the weeks and months to come, I will be trying to do as much creative work as I can while also helping look after our new baby - Demelza Wren. She's four-and-a-half months old and gurgling next to me as I write this. Oh, and she's absolutely wonderful.
I hope you come back for new instalments on this new chapter in my life.
