Woo Hoo!!!!

I'm going to Bristol!!

I just heard that my paper was accepted for the DWJ conference in July! My clever summer plans have come to complete fruition. I'm going to be spending two weeks in Venice at the end of June, with time in England possibly before and definitely after, with Bristol being July 3-5.

The best part is that I may see a bunch of YOU there! steepholm, of course you'll be there... who else?

I'm so excited (that's the worst part of living alone - the only people to squee at are Robinson and Tabitha)

Yay! I didn't end up submitting, so no DWJ conference for me. I hope you have a great time!

I'm REALLY looking forward to it! (and Venice, too, of course - wow, what a great summer I'm going to have)

You are! It will be awesome and I am jellis already :)

Congratulations! I don't know about the whole conference but I'll definitely try to make it over to Bristol and catch up with some DWJ list peeps. Hurrah!

Oh, great! I hope you do :)
Feb. 20th, 2009 06:54 pm (UTC)
Yay! I knew you'd submitted a proposal and already had you as definitely attending. :) I hope to be there too.
Feb. 20th, 2009 07:05 pm (UTC)
oh, cool! I had hoped you'd be there :)

I'll be in England, but not in Bristol...
Feb. 20th, 2009 08:03 pm (UTC)
Where will you be? Because I'm probably going to stay for a week or so after the conference, and plan to be in London from the 30th of June to the 3rd...

I'll be in London, if all plans go well -- there is a conference at St. Andrews that I really should go to, but it's the 5th, I think. And I don't know if I can work the money. I'll let you know as soon as I work out details with the family.

That would be awesome. I'll be in London for sure for some of the time - after the conference, too. I haven't worked out exactly when I'm going to come home, or leave Canada, for that matter. I'm booked in Venice from the 15th to the 30th of June, and will be in Bristol from the 3rd to the 5th of July - otherwise, it's a bit TBA, so just let me know.

Thank you! :)

I could possibly do Bristol. Our daughter lives in Cardiff, which is just a short train ride away and easily doable.

Possibly we could arrange a rendezvous for lunch or visit to zoo or something?
Feb. 20th, 2009 09:45 pm (UTC)
That would be great! There's also a good possibility that I will cross the border into Wales - my aunt is still living in a rest home in Abergavenny. She has dementia, and is 93, but I should probably try to take the opportunity to see her. I'm planning to stay around for at least a few days after the conference - maybe I could meet you in Cardiff!

Cardiff sounds good and it would be on the way to Abergavenny, so not out of your way at all.

Keep me posted re dates etc. I usually visit the offspring at some point in the summer, so I'll try to get the dates to coincide.

That is wonderful! I think I need to look at my calendar for that weekend!
Feb. 21st, 2009 01:04 am (UTC)
Oh! Oh! Do come! It would be so great :)
Feb. 21st, 2009 01:46 am (UTC)
Feb. 21st, 2009 02:05 am (UTC)
thanks :)
Feb. 21st, 2009 02:00 am (UTC)
Good work!
Feb. 21st, 2009 02:06 am (UTC)
Thanks :) I'm sure it was your and Norma's help on the proposal that made the difference!!

(are you feeling any better??)
Feb. 21st, 2009 08:35 am (UTC)
Looking forward to seeing you! It should be a good gig.
Feb. 21st, 2009 04:31 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Me too - and three whole days talking about DWJ? It's going to be amazing!

I'm just back from Leeds and saw you were presenting by way of gillo's LJ before I ever got to yours. I'm presenting at that conference too. :) I think I'll be recruiting LJ to help me with some of the research for my paper. But how exciting to know I'll be spending time with you then! (Plus, further consolation for having to skip my favorite annual conference which is cruelly on the SAME WEEKEND as the DWJ one - but having been obsessing over my topic for months in advance, I really had to give the right paper at the right conference rather than go to the BSHS one.)
Feb. 22nd, 2009 06:24 pm (UTC)
Oh, how excellent and brilliant! Let's hope we're not scheduled back-to-back so we'll be able to go and cheer each other's papers on!
