Better late than never . . .

Oh dear, I really have neglected my blog this last few months, haven’t I?  😦

I’ve no excuse really, except that I’ve been battling ill-health, along with a very full schedule of study. 🙂
I managed to get respectable marks for my TMA’s – all within the high 70’s and low-to-mid 80’s, and I sent off my 3 printed copies of my ECA, in plenty of time for marking.
So now it’s just a nail-biting wait to see if I’ve managed to get my usual Grade 2 Pass for this course, as I have done for all the rest {g}

I’ve already booked, and paid for, my next course: EA300: Children’s Literature, which starts at the beginning of October, and have all the books for the course, bar Tom’s Midnight Garden, which I’ll be getting over the next week or so. I’ll then have lot’s of reading to keep me occupied over the summer break ;~)

I chose the Children’s Lit course, as I’d already got some of the books, and wanted to have an opportunity to delve deeper into them, which I’ll have with this course. I’ve already gone through them once, and look forward to discussing them with my fellow students when the course forum opens for us 🙂

This next course is my penultimate one before I, hopefully, get my BA (Hon) in Humanities and Literature – I would have loved it if there was one for Creative Writing and Literature, as this is mainly what I’ve done so far, but there’s no named BA’s for this – as yet!

As for my health, it’s been a bad time for me, and I’m now having to use crutches to walk about, as my stick wasn’t giving me enough support for walking any distance – not that I’ve actually been able to use them as much as I’d like, as the pain and fatigue brought on by a mix of Arthritus, Fibromyalgia, and Lymphodaema, have made me too tired to do much more than keep up with my studies – but nil desperandum, as they say – I’m sure my health will have better periods, eventually! 😦

In the meantime, I’ll be starting to write a more fuller version of my short story, written for my A363 ECA – that should keep me out of trouble for the next year or so! {g}
