Instead of perfecting my theory, and reducing some of the quoted material, I wanted to get into something a little more practical. I’ve started looking at the questions that I will ask in the survey, and at what each of these questions (or a cluster of questions) will capture. Although this too is theory-based, I will be able to switch on and off easily from it- unlike writing a critical review of the literature. In this way I am hoping to be able to get back into it as work is starting to invade my time in a rather big way. Alarm bells are going off everywhere!
The family’s summer holiday is close. I should be back into gear soon after.
