The sweet and the sour

Working in science means saying goodbye all the time. The contracts are short, the playing field is international; making friends can't go without losing friends. One of our Plymouth PhD students; Heather, was in the process of writing up, and would move to Wales before it was done, so we threw a goodbye party before she left. It would be a wine, cheese and games night. At at its peak we were 10 people; overfed on cheese, drunk with wine, and shouting at each other over some game. In short: a good night! I hope Heather takes good memories of this night, and of her time in Plymouth, to Wales. And we'll see her again when she cames back to submit, defend, and celebrate!
