Brain dead and soggy!

I am totally exhausted and my brain is completely fried! I have spent most of the past two days at work reading and editing my BMedSci students thesis. He is a very intelligent man who is older than me(!) and is doing this as a year out in the middle of his medical degree, however, I have to say that it has been very hard going. This thesis has to be finished and at the binders on 28th November, and I have no idea how he is going to manage it as there is still so much to do. I have only seen the first chapter of four, and it needs a lot of work. I think the reason I found it so hard going was because the order of the writing is so muddled and the writing style isn't easy. I don't know what it is, but I think that medics just don't understand how to 'tell the story' they seem to write in 'bullet points' and phrases, not proper sentences, which makes for very difficult reading. I have finished Chapter 1 now, thank goodness, so will give it back to him tomorrow for correcting.
Alex has been so funny over the past few days, he really doesn't seem to know whether he is coming or going. Yesterday he was in a fantastic mood all day, and then today he seemed to be permanently tired coupled with grumpiness and hyperactivity by turns. As a result this evenings bath was very very splashy and I am soaked! It was great fun though as he was giggling like mad while soaking us.
I have had success with crafting over the past two days, as I have now made 24 of my Christmas cards! As I am not going to show them here (they are the same design as before), I will leave you with a cute photo of Alex asleep in his bed...for the first time he rolled over onto his tummy to sleep. He looks so peaceful and quiet, which is quite rare for my very happy and active little boy. More soon,

Ha! Just noticed you've made Alex's artwork your blog header - brill! (I'd never get points for observation - it's probably been there ages).

No wonder your brain's worn out trying to sort out something of that level for someone else - perhaps they should have have basic essay lessons before they start studying!
