Out of Office Reply until 13th August

If you email me that is what you are going to get for three weeks because for the first time for three years I am having a holiday. Mahmoud got a week in the UK last year on condition I got to go to my graduation and summer school this year!

So I fly tomorrow, on Friday I will graduate from the Certificate in Continuing Education in Egyptology from Manchester University after 4 years studying, we get a champagne and strawberry reception and all the lecturers wear their gowns (I have seen previous years graduations). I have managed to get three guests as another graduate is only bringing one guest so my best mate Colette Mason will be there, my daughter Amira and her friend who is driving her there. Posh dinner with cocktails in the evening.

Then I am going to summer school at Liverpool University, 2 full weeks. I get to stay in student digs and the first week is history and the second week glyphs, I hope I can crack these face to face :)

 I am meeting up with a lot of friends while I am there and if you are around Liverpool then get in touch. It is going to be weird to be back in blighty, I gather is has been raining ROFL, I will miss Luxor and Egypt so much.

Then it is back to Luxor on 13th August to several hundred emails, I being given an old I-phone so I expect to deal with any urgent ones while I am there but otherwise it will have to wait until I get back.

Mahmoud is holding the fort in Luxor while I am away.
