This is actually the second challenge entitled “Thought I’d Be…”. The story with this one is when I was overseas and absorbing all the galleries and art museums I began to remember everything that I loved about History and Art and the religious fervour that sometimes accompanied both….who am I kidding – ALWAYS accompanied both!!!
I came home in September and Lilly had already filled out my Uni application (the B Form – for us oldies) and got accepted into University of Queensland – nice one. But, being the lazy sod that I can tend to be, accepted at Australian Catholic Uni which was down the road – no transport or parking hassles and the classes were smaller – which is always a bonus when you need an extension!!!
A man called Paul Conway convinced me to do Secondary Teaching once I finished my BA – and the rest, as they say, is HERstory!!
Yep, thought I’d be living a life of discovering precious artefacts and investigating their value to society; married with children (of course) and growing old in a society where being old is very, very alluring!!
