It appears I have come to a stage where it isn’t possible to update the blog everyday. This annoys me a lot.  I’m still cooking every day and I still have plenty to say but not nearly enough time to say it. This is for two main reasons.

  1. There’s this annoying thesis thing I have to write at some point and a PhD supervisor reminding me about it all the time.
  2. I need to work to earn money now, since I was dumb enough to join Imperial in the year before they decided to hand out 4 year funding grants.  Grr!

Work at the moment involves marking 1st year work and, judging by the scripts I get in, most of the first years are illiterate and innumerate. Assisting in problem solving classes have confirmed these suspicions for me. I spend up to 8 hours a day writing offensive comments on their work, which is occasionally satisfying but mostly irritating.

So from now on blog posts will only be up once or twice per week. :( With any luck I’ll have enough tutoring jobs to let me write more. Tutorials are great -  they earn twice the money for half the time and effort.

For now, here is another flurry of catch up posts. Expect many more like this for the next few months. Let’s start at the beginning with that 3 course meal I was telling you about… 


  1. don’t worry ros! it happens to all of us. unfortunately food-blogging doesn’t pay any of our bills and and we have to neglect the things we care about! :-P we’re still gonna come around and check on you at least a couple times a week.

  2. It’s probably a good thing that food blogging doesn’t pay my bills! Think how quickly I’d lose interedt. I’sd probably end up distracting myself by blogging about maths!
