gnommi: (grargh)
so the fatigue seems to have been caused by folate and Vitamin D deficiencies. how I got them nobody seems to know. Malabsorption is one guess but it's not a perfect candidate. oh well, been treated, feel better.

several months agoI got offered a job in a cutting edge department in a London University, which I turned down as it would have involved a pay cut, which when extra commuting costs (~£6k pa) were considered, was simply not possible to live on. The head of department then called me up and asked pretty much what it would take for me to go and work for them. Lots of negotiating and months later, they improved their pay offer by around £10k. Definitely an offer I couldn't refuse! So, Job From Hell with People I Love is no more, from the end of today and hello new job from September 1st.

Un/fortunately, commuting options from Southampton to London have been seriously reduced since I last did a daily ther and back for my PhD... So we eventually decided to bite the bullet and move. So in a fortnight's time (movers permitting, but that's another story!) we'll be leaving Southampton and taking up residence in Kingston Upon Thames. Not exactly a bustling metropolis, but a darn sight less of a journey to work, and hey let's not scare the horses!

so yes. London types BE AFRAID! I'll be working round the corner from the British Museum...
