PseudoSupermum has discovered GradBritain, an online magazine for British postgrads. There's lots of good stuff there, though PseudoSupermum found herself grinding her teeth when it came to an article on "the academic assault course" that is actually the library. An assault course? The UEA Library? (For God's sake, I worked there once. I never knew that students regarded it thus.) The short-term loan lady is "the fiercest staff they can find" (yikes!), sternly "patrolling" her desk and barking from time to time. Good grief, and there we were thinking we were approachable ...

Then there's another article about whether or not to start a family during your doctoral studies. I feel another article coming on - whether or not to start doctoral studies during the raising of a family whilst working full-time already...
