I've been feeling lousy over the last couple of weeks. Thought I had a bad reaction to hair colourant - but turns out it was shingles! So tired ...

This one's for Hilma!

Finally, the OU phoned me with my honours classification and I now have a BA (Hons) First-Class! I'm dedicating it to Hilma Miles, who sadly died in the Himalayas a few years back. She was aiming for a first, because she said she deserved it (!!) - but, she never got to finish - so, Hilma - this one's for you!

Still waiting for honours!

I (finally) got the result of EA300 and was delighted and surprised to get 88% for the ECA - so I got my grade 2 (it would've been a distinction on any other course - but EA300 are a bit mean - one student got 99% for her ECA and still *only* a grade 2). Still waiting for confirmation of the classification though, because the (only!) lady who works them out is on holiday!

I've decided to cancel A330, with some regret. Have signed up for a short course in Archaeology (SA188), starting 1 September - and a 30-pointer Analytical science course (S224) which starts in February. That should keep me busy!
