I first saw this challenge on Sticky Fingers (but originated by Kerry Jean Lister, based on a feature in The Guardian) and for some nutcase reason I asked to be tagged for it by Him Up North! So here we go…

Completing a coherent Masters Dissertation while suffering from hideous morning sickness.

Tuesday afternoon cos I happened to catch the final ever episode of Friends. It was happy crying.
