I had a phone call from a fellow student from my tutorial group, and she told me our results were in, so I quickly went to the site to get my results and, much to my amazement, and total delight, I’d managed another 85%.

I honestly hadn’t imagined that I’d get as good a mark as my previous one, so I’m over the moon with it.:)

Now all I have to do, is to try and shift this virus that I’ve got, so that I can concentrate on the next Block of the Module – much easier said than done at the moment, and I’m even having a job to concentrate enough to read the set books. 😦

I managed to finish reading Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome, and I’ve also even read all the critics for that section, but I’m now on to Tom’s Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce and, although I’m enjoying the story, I’m finding it a job to concentrate enough to keep reading the book, let alone all the critics. I manage a few pages, and then I find that I’ve dozed off – not the fault of the story, but just this virus dictating to me! Grrrr

I’m really, really, hoping that I feel better soon, as there is so much reading to be done in this section, and I just can’t concentrate enough to do it at the moment 😦

I’ve not only got TMG to read, as well as all the critics attached to this section, but there is also Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D Taylor, to get through – although I do remember it being an excellent story, so I’m looking forward to that 🙂

 I did read all of the set books (apart from Swallows and Amazons) at the beginning of the summer last year, and I do still remember the basic plot-line of them all but, of course, I need a lot more than that to be able to complete the activities necessary to get my TMA04 written.

Let’s just hope the virus goes soon, so I can get what little energy I would normally have, back again 🙂
