I'm on long service leave!

Hooray, after ten years of slogging it out as a professional craftsperson I've finally earned my long service leave! My craft is difficult, hence I need a real break to rest my body and refresh my mind. During my LSL I will be starting my Post Graduate Diploma in Classics and Archaeology at Melbourne Uni. I have to do five subjects and one 12,000 word thesis. I'm starting off with two subjects: Current Issues in Aegean Archaeology and The Epic Cycle and Homeric Hymns. Should be great. My major interests are gender and religion, often in combination, and I can explore both these areas within these subjects. Oh, I'll also be sitting in on the Roman Religion subject in preparation for taking it next year. I start next week. Wooo. (Yes, I am a nerd who loves study!)

So you're relaxing after ten years of hard slog... with some postgrad coursework and a 12,000 word thesis.

Nah, I can't even act surprised. :-)

Good for you. Take a breather, but do stay in touch. I'm still waiting for the chance to show you around our part of the world, since yours was so lovely and hospitable the two times I was there. (Fremantle has to be the friendliest town I've ever visited) At any rate, I'd love to take you to *your* coffee house and show you Mt Rainier.
