I have had the email from our course leader to let us know that all of our marks have been officially confirmed by the university.
Therefore I am very very proud to announce that I have achieved a Merit in my Foundation Degree in Supporting Teaching and Learning. I am absolutely thrilled to bits with this, particularly as only a couple of months ago I was almost sure I was going to have to give up the course for a while and start again in September.
I have struggled so badly this past academic year with family and personal issues, but have improved my time management skills hugely, out of sheer necessity. I have learned so much, both in course material and about myself and my capabilities. My confidence in myself has increased enormously.
Now I just need to find a school willing to give me a job!
I am so tired this evening. To quote myself, talking to Three as I put her to bed: “I am just getting to the stage where I need to sit down with a cup of tea because if I don’t, I will fall down instead, and cry.” I’m so glad it’s Friday and we have a quiet weekend planned. It has been a good week, but a busy one with lots of extra bits and changes to routine which, along with a run of night’s of poor sleep, has just done me in completely.
My blogging was just interrupted by a phonecall from mum, with news from our home town which I need to get my head around. I don’t want to explain in detail on here yet but a building which was a hugely significant part of my childhood and our family will apparently be disappearing soon. I’m really shocked and upset. I can imagine my dad and my grandpa turning in their graves just across the road from it all.
I think I will stop blogging for now and go and sip my tea quietly…
