Well, this is the first entry in my blog. All my friends are blogging these days. It seems to be a good way to keep a diary. I’ve always kept a diary until this year. You can see that it’s taken me 3 days to get this year working.
I have to say that one of these days was lost to family stuff. I have such a lot of family you wouldn’t believe it. I used to think it was nice, but since I’ve been at University it’s been a trial. All the uncles and aunts want to know what I’m doing and when I’ve explained they still don’t know. From their point of view, and my mother’s, really, I ought to get married, settle down, buy a house, have children, join the happy extended family thing.
OK, my cousins kind of understand that I’m making a career, but most of them are doing practical stuff in shops, offices and factories.
Mum: “What’s the point of archaeology? Have you thought of hairdressing? J is getting a good wage and fantastic tips.” Grrr.
