This blog has been looking sorely neglected over the last two months, and at times I have felt that I should put up this sign and abandoning all hope:
To say that I have been busy would be a slight understatement… two job applications, exam invigilation, a week of fieldwork, an exhibition opening, writing a 20 page booklet, lecture preparation and a conference… and that’s just off the top of my head. I’ve also been consistently run-down and unwell; who knew that burning the candle at three ends is bad for your health eh? All my good intentions have therefore been foiled and I’ve been left with several of half finished posts and a bunch of scrappy notes. I am unreservedly sorry to you all!
My busy times are not quite over but the end is in sight, so I’m dragging myself back here before any more time slips by! A sign my boss put up at work recently feels somewhat appropriate today:
I have been wandering, but so many of my wandering have taught me things I cannot wait to share here! I hope to get the missing posts (and the regular schedule) back to normal by the end of June!
In the meantime to say sorry for my absence, I am doing another giveaway!! There’s another death related book I wish to bestow on one of my lovely readers!
This is an amusing little read and the cover is tombstone shaped – what’s not to love?!
Same deal as before – comment below if you want to enter and I’ll pick a winner at random on Sunday 7th June. Good luck and I’ll see you all soon!
Edit: ** DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL SUNDAY 14th JUNE**
