This beast, which we affectionately named Mjölnir, put all the other hammers on the trip to shame.
And of course I coudn’t resist giving it a go!
It’s taking me a bizarrely long time to re-adjust to normal life after nearly 5 weeks of travelling around and hitting rocks with hammers.
It’s not helped by the fact my house is in the process of gaining new housemates, so there’s stuff all over the place and workmen in doing various jobs. I’ve had to take refuge in the pub alone(!) a few times to get away from it!
I’m getting the post field-work blues but I’m glad I finished my undergraduate field career on such a high with such great people.
Anyway, enough of my bellyaching: here’s a nice pic of a beach on the north coast of Shetlands’ most northerly island, Unst.

If I’m not careful, people will start talking to me like I actually do know what I’m talking about…
please excuse my horrific handwriting
It looks like I’m going to need a small (probably 1-man) tent for fieldwork in July. Does anyone have any suggestions for a lightweight and CHEAP tent?
IT’S MY LAST EXAM TOMORROW!
THEN IT’S A LONG SUMMER OF FIELDWORK!
Geology Field Trip
Making a presentation about geology for a Science Outreach thing I’m doing tomorrow and found this pic of me…
Totally put it in the presentation
for the lolz.
So I finally got confirmation from my geochemistry prof saying the trip to Iceland is going ahead in the summer.
commence watching of Holocene video on repeat.
Back! Had a really epic and busy past two weeks. Went to Edinburgh for a friends 21st, she’d never been to Edinburgh or Scotland before so it was good to do all the silly tourist things!
Then I went off to a geology field trip to look at the ophiolite deposit in Cyprus. I feel like I’m in a bit if a spin, but looking forward to a quiet xmas with the family back in the Shire!
