Yipee! I got a good pass!

I could barely believe it when I collected my TMA 05 results – 70%!
So, you may say, isn’t that just about average for you? Well, yes, it is, but if you had been here with me suffering the utter disaster of losing all your work, and having to start from scratch the day before the TMA was due in, you’d know how I feel!
I confess I was just about ready to give up on it, but my fellow students were so encouraging, I decided to give it another go. After 7 drafts, I’d just about had enough, and sent it in, expecting either a total disaster, or a bare pass, so you can imagine how I felt to get the mark I did!
On the health front, I’ve discovered that the blood problem I’ve got is something genetic, which means that my daughter will now have to be tested for it, and also my many sisters! I still can’t make head or tails of it really – my blood is thinner than it should be, but it also has the propensity to clot, which can cause a thrombosis!
I spoke to my mum on the phone this last weekend, and it turns out her father died of thrombosis (something none of us were told about) when my mum was 12 – I really hate it when this sort of thing is kept from us!
So far, I’ve got three problems, healthwise, that seem to be hereditary – so it looks like I’m the gene-magnet for them all! Grrrr
On a different note, I’ve started looking at the blocks that lead to TMA 06, and have to confess I haven’t got much work done this week. I’ve got three weeks left to my next TMA, and nothing to show for it as yet (although I’ve got my TMA sheet ready with the question, and some notes – and the start of my bibblybubbly!)
I guess it’s a case of doing what I can, when I can – with the various problems I’ve got, healthwise, I guess that taking each day as it comes is going to have to be the norm – and it’s getting so I seem to work better under last-minute pressure, anyway!
