It’s been a big week at HQ, I officially went back to school this week!
After several weeks of arguing with Student Finance England (another day for that story – maybe a Ranty Friday) they have agreed my loan for my fees, the Open University has sent me a pile of books, I have bought lovely new stationery and I have met with my tutor!
So that’s it, I’m a student – for real – actually studying something academic. Eeeeeek!
I’m very lucky that the OU have given me a credit transfer from previous study (my nursing training) so I don’t have to do so many modules. Although it does mean that I am rather thrown into the deep end with a level 2 course, having studied nothing at this level for about 7 years. I’m not sure my brain will cope – but nothing ventured nothing gained!
So having waved the household off I set myself up with Radio 4 in the background, a big cup of coffee to keep me going and all my books ready for some serious work!
I even sent Badger a text picture to prove I was working!
And that was shortly followed by another picture, because suddenly I had “help” . A certain someone obviously felt that I needed assistance or maybe a break, after all I had been working for at least 20 minutes!
And there he laid – like a dead body! I lifted him up, saggy and floppy and put him on the sofa…… straight back to here!
So in an attempt to achieve something constructive, I took all the stuff out of the college box and settled back to get some reading done!
And other than the occasionally patting the pen out of my hand, this is where he sat….all day!
So work achieved, but now have to find somewhere else to store college things.
Oh well you win some you lose some!
