A busy time of year: Life Update #something-or-other

Hello. You haven’t heard from me in a while. I write the occasional blog post on this site, about literature or archaeology. I’ve been noticeably absent from the blogosphere (or whatever it’s called) for a few weeks now, and I can only blame this on work. Anyone reading this and living within the UK will know that this time of year is exam season, with the GCSE’s in full swing, and as such my days have been pretty hectic, trying to get as many 15- and 16-year-olds through their coursework and revision as possible. I’ve had every intention to stay up at night to blog, but after busy days of handling students and getting incredibly pissed off with public transport, sleep and the desire to recharge has often taken me by surprise, and left me groggy-eyed at half past four in a morning when I’ve been nudged awake, still fully-clothed and slobbering away where I sat. I haven’t forgotten those few of you who read this blog whenever I get around to posting things (I do appreciate it) and will endeavour to get a handful of posts up before this month is past. I’ve got book reviews to write up covering my reading from the past five months, as well as a life update or two, and a few images of my Penguin Classics collections that I feel I may as well share. Please bear with me- I am still here, and haven’t forgotten this blog. I’ll say hello again quite soon. Promise.
