Apologies for the lack of posts this week - I'm still slogging away at a final (well, sort of final) draft of my thesis, which I will hopefully be sending to my supervisor tomorrow.
I'm currently part way in to The Pirates of Pompeii (one of the Roman Mysteries series) which has so far made me both laugh and cry within the first four chapters, so that's looking good! I've also dispatched my brother to see if he can get hold of the pilot of Xena: Warrior Princess for me. I've never seen the show and have no real idea what it's like or even what it's about, except it stars two scantily clad women whose characters may or may not be having an affair with each other. (I haven't seen Hercules: The Legendary Journeys either, but Xena sounded more fun).
I've also just booked a short holiday in Split, Croatia, which should fall in between thesis submission and my viva. I've been desperate to see Diocletian's Palace and the aqueduct for years, so hopefully it will all work out. I'd love to take a book set in Roman Split/Dalmatia with me - can anyone recommend a good one?!
Right, back to work, and to staring at the weather hoping it improves before my friends' wedding next Wednesday...
My desk. Where I work. Except I usually work at the study room at uni, but needed to be near the good coffee today.
