**Thoughts to the Grenfell Tower victims - this was just over from my old school in White City, London, and like the rest of the world am horrified that such an event could happen anywhere today**

I'm sitting in bed with my knitted socks and a cosy blanket - it has been a cold start to the winter.
I had my 3 hour exam today - always so, so, so good to have it finished! I never know what to do when I have finished study, as it really does take over my life. I have found this past semester (late February to now) v-e-r-y hard going doing 55-60 hour weeks. I am still happy that I have handed in my resignation at my current school. I need the mental break from both!

Over the past year I have completed 4 university papers/courses! That truly is crazy - 4 papers/courses is the workload of a full time university student for half an entire year - but I've also worked nearly fulltime on top of this!

My degree looks like this - I've only Ed. Psyc. to do now... A paper which would have been mighty useful at school for years...

I've so much to do - lots of crafty things; knitting; sewing; scrapbooking; sorting out the junk on top of my desk; developing photos; getting chairs re-covered; sorting out new roman blinds; cleaning the house; meeting with friends and family who get neglected... I really do NOT do much else while studying - I don't see anyone a lot, miss birthdays etc etc... The middle child was 16 a month ago and apart from cake and burgers, it was much of a non event... we still need to go out for that - I think he may have forgotten...

I started 2 new scarves...

Off to catch up on sleep! I've just recycled all my university notes and readings... an awful lot of paper!! The last essay result is due next week!

  1. Wow you do need a break! I may have missed it, but what degree are you going for? I know you must be proud of yourself!
