Einstein's theory of the relativity of time, revisited

Since I will have my first face-to-face meeting with my supervisors before the end of February, I had a couple of days working from home this week, ostensibly to make some progress with ideas for my PhD.

I rediscovered the strange phenomenon that making a cup of tea, an activity that might occupy thirty seconds at work on a busy day, can take a full 35 minutes at home when all that waits to distract you is a pile of academic articles about complexity theory, adult learning theory and critical realism.
