Friday – Monday
Spent the Weekend at Scottish S’s, it was cold, it was snowy and it was great fun. I fell in a snowdrift and managed to walk up the big hill, although I did need numerous breaks on the way up (unhealthy? moi?….oh hell yeah).
Had a german class…the fun never stops!
Met people for coffee (caffeine is fun), and then joy of joys a tutorial class. Trying to get first year students to talk in a seminar setting is near impossible. Imagine the scenario:
Me: So what do you think of how archaeological sites are discovered?
Class: *silence….stare at walls, table, ceiling etc.*
Me: Right, if you lot don’t start talking I’m going to pick on individuals and make them talk.
Class: *sudden explosion of talking*
You get the picture. After that it was departmental and Hellenic society seminars. Amazingly the dept. one had stuff which could be applied to my PhD which was rather a nice surprise.
Dig! Again with the heavy shovelling of soil. And I managed to drop a wheel barrow on my knee…I know it sounds strange but I fell over into the spoil heap and wheel barrow followed…I know have an interesting bruise on my knee.
Spent morning in agony from aforementioned dig…..bits of me hurt that I didn’t know existed. Then I ate my tea…then assisted my flatmate eat his tea. Then we got beers and played pool and monopoly and cards….drinking lots of beer and sambuca – hic!
