Well, it is not actually an anniversary as such, although there will be two of those to come before the project finishes. Today is the first official day of our GRASS project and it is also, coincidentally, one of the few days when nobody on the GRASS team has talked to or emailed a fellow GRASS enthusiast to talk about the project!
It seems odd even to think of this as our first day – we have achieved much already and we have put so many plans in place over the summer. Already our students are working with GRASS material and shaping our ideas about how best we can move forward. Having a first day is special, though, as it reminds us that we are now on a proper footing and can go full-steam ahead. One of the great benefits of being offered TLDF funding for a project such as this is that it reminds you that the university is supporting you – that will help to keep us inspired.
So, to my fellow GRASS team…thanks for the fun we have had already and………here we go!!!!!!!!!!!!!
