The gift of cake!

Writing a PhD thesis can be a bit of an ordeal, to say the least. And those around you don't escape from it either. They have to be pretty patient to put up with how much of an absolute nut-job you're being! And to realise that you really don't want to be completely selfish.

That being said, there are many people that don't need to have done one in order to fathom what it's all about and that you need your friends and family along the way, whether it be for encouragement and kind words, or just normalcy.

My housemates are three such people. I have yet again been incredibly lucky with my co-habitants as, just like the last house I lived in, they were what one might term 'randoms', as I had no hand in choosing the people in my current abode. But they are now some of my absolute best friends.
