This week has gone by with little to show for it. Pain gets in the way of many things and stopped my brain working. However, things got a whole lot better when my 'donut' cushion arrived and I can now sit down in comfort. Not being able to sit is a real pain - in more ways than one :)
This revolved round reading, trying to take my mind off the discomfort. Mostly reading text books for the evening class essay on Ancient Egypt. I'll post more about this subject later in the week as it is fascinating me.
Still on the Egyptian theme, Mr Prue and I went to Oxford's Ashmolean Museum yesterday to see the newly opened Ancient Egyptian gallery. It claims to have the best predynastic exhibits outside Cairo, and I can well believe it. Overall there is too much to take in at once. Our evening class has only got to 2500 B.C.E. so halfway round the gallery we decided to call it a day and return early next year.
You can view some of what we saw here.
It was the highlight of my week :)
Oh...and I did a little Christmas shopping too.
Sadly, I did no writing this week. This coming week there is a 2000 word essay to write about the factors leading to the unification of Egypt way back around 3000 B.C.E. or thereabouts.
