Idle Hands…

Are not my thing. Since February 7th, we have been consistently making preparations for our move. Even though for some time we did not know if the funding would be there, we knew we had to keep moving in that direction. Now that it is quite clear that the money will be there, it seemsContinue reading “Idle Hands…”

Monuments Old and New

In this instance, 1200 AD is enough to be new when 2500 BC is the other date we are dealing with. Today was my first field trip with the program and it was wonderful.

Not every AirBnB offers breakfast, but some do, andContinue reading “The Best Day”

I’m positively knackered (as they say).

I think I may have overdone my first day. I could hardly stay awake on the bus ride back, and when I got off the bus I could hardly walk because my right calf was threatening to cramp and the bottom of my feet brought new pain with every step. 12.83 miles (my phone says)Continue reading “I’m positively knackered (as they say).”
