Dem Bones

March 25, 2007

Well, that was a pretty productive week. All the bones in my assemblage have now been recorded, so I can get on to the analysis. I should have finished the practical work for my placement by Tuesday too. Everything’s beginning to fall into place nicely.

As a reward to myself for all that, I’m taking the weekend off from work and having a rather nice time. Yesterday was a glorious spring day and in the morning I went for a good walk in the woods behind the house. In the afternoon, I went down to Launceston to watch the rugby. Not a great game, but again, it was nice to be out in the sun and catch up with old friends that I bumped into down there.

Always nice to visit the mother country too. Never fails to put me in a good mood.

Almost forgot; I received an email form Sheffield on Thursday saying that they were offering me a place next year. Looks like I’ll be further away from Cornwall than ever before, for 12 months at least.

Swords

March 18, 2007

How many people have walked out of their front door and into a sword fight? I did yesterday when I went to mow my lawn. Most bizarre. I probably should point out that the participants were in full fencing gear. Which only made it more bizarre.

I got my first module marks back for this year on Friday, and I have to say I’m quite chuffed with myself. I feel vindicated; as though all I’ve been saying about the impact of my personal problems last year is now beyond dispute, if it ever was. Still, onwards to the dissertation. There’s always a danger, laid back as I am, that I’ll leave everything to the last minute and shrug my shoulders with my remaining work.
