Just a quickie…….

A quick blog as another night of study looms, the science revision is done so it’s on to reading about a creative curriculum next – who’d be a student, the to do list is never ending.
Fortunately I squeezed in another pre work swim this morning, I’m just about managing to fit everything into one day!!
Swim done
Off to meet a real life swimmer, Rebecca Addlington tomorrow
Bring it on


Alcoholic Assignments………………

images (2)So after three halves of lager and a glass of wine (its been a tough day, week , month, half-term) I’ve finally got an opening sentence for my first uni assignment. Strange really, when I’ve spent a sober 2 weeks staring at an empty piece of paper, with not a clue where to start – now I’m on a roll. Well I would be except I’m struggling to keep my eyes open! Still, at least I’ve started and I’m no longer filled with dread that I’m going to spend half-term not knowing what to write.

Yes, uni-life is now in full swing, it’s not easy. Juggling work, home, college and uni takes some doing, and my only means of survival seems to be running my life like a military operation. Everything we do is now on a list, calendar or random post-it note, so far it seems to be working, who knows with a little more organisation I might even get round to blogging a little more often – I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since August – maybe its time for a quick catch-up!!

Half-term is finally here, and what a half-term it’s been, frantic from day one to the end -but I still love my job! If the degree is going well, the science GCSE isn’t – just my luck to get a science teacher who knows less about science than I do. First there was the negative/positive confusion, then the anti-bodies that she called anti-biodies, and this week she had us looking for calium on the periodic table -only to realise it was a typo – we should have been looking for CALCIUM!! Still, this week was her last, hopefully her replacement will be better!!

The cycling continues and we haven’t been lost for weeks, always a good sign. I wish I could say I’m back running but I’m not and not really sure if I ever will be -surgery looms and I’m hoping for a miracle!!

Quickest catch-up ever

but there’s uni work to be done

Bring it on!!

One Block or Two……………

Mmmm, what to blog about today – I feel a bit of a writer’s block coming on – I’m so tired I can’t think what to write about. Mind you I think I’m suffering with more than one block – my face feels like it’s had a good kicking – a sinus blockage is definitely on the way. Quite how they get blocked when I’m always out in the ‘fresh air’ that supposedly ‘clears your head’, I’ll never know! Still it could be worse I could be like the pigeon I saw on the way home – headless. It wasn’t running around though – it must just be chickens that can do that!!!

It’s not that I haven’t done anything today – I’ve cycled twice, worked and been out for a nice meal with some of the family for my Nieces ‘welcome home, now goodbye’ meal. She’s home from working in France and is back to London for Uni on Sunday. Oh to be young again – not that I ever worked away from home or went to Uni but you know what I mean!!

Now I’m sat watching Grand Designs and to be honest I couldn’t give a toss whether they build their amazing  minimalist box home or not – give me a nice  old-fashioned building any day – all that lovely greenery and they build an overgrown shoe box in the middle of it – now they don’t know how to fit windows in it………………..I’m off to bed!!

6 miles cycled

unblocked sinuses tomorrow

Bring it on
