Work, work, work!

We have done little in the last few weeks but work (sometimes including nights and weekends!). Peter has 2 weeks left on his contract and then will be returning to retirement. He is looking forward to it.

My time has mostly been spent organising an intergovernmental meeting on statistical metadata that we're holding in early April. We are expecting about 75 participants and 30 papers to be presented. I should learn more about statistical metdata than I had ever imagined! French studies are also demanding a lot of time. I had a big exam last Friday, which I think went OK.

There are signs of Spring appearing as you can see from the photo taken in our garden. Thank god, because we are sick of winter! Our memories of last year's summer are keeping us going through the cold and gloomy weather. We just had the best weekend, with yesterday's temperature reaching 23 degrees. We played tennis (Peter won 6-0, 6-1) and then rode our bikes to Nyon, where we had lunch with friends. A huge day of activity!
