Remember how well I did with my monthly marked assignments for the recent OU course? All those plaudits you laid on me? The endless revision I did in the run up to the Paris exam. The high hopes that my tutor had that I would finish the course with a very high mark?Well, it all came crashing down when I got my result last week. I ended up with a 2.2 for the course and was devastated. I really knew - or thought I knew - everything needed to do well with the exam and I wish there was feedback that told you where you had gone wrong. I'm not alone with my disappointment. Many of the students on the OU forum that did the same course are bemoaning their result and we are consoling ourselves with the comforting news that it is one of the hardest courses out there.
Anyway, I know now for sure what my next course will be. It is in Film and Television History and will only be provided up to 2011. It doesn't begin until next February which suits me rather as there is a chance that we might be in the UK for a few months later in the year . More about that another time when plans have been firmed up.
An apology I owe to fellow bloggers is the fact that I have not been around here much lately and have fallen a bit behind with visiting you all. We've had a friend staying and it does seem a bit churlish when someone has bothered to come out and visit us to then sit tapping awaywith the excuse that 'I've just got to do a bit of blogging'. Anyway, I am now back in the loop; I've recovered from my exam disappointment and I'm trying to stick to 22 WW points a day. There is a family wedding in the UK next May and I want to lose some weight for it. Well I'd like to lose weight regardless of a family get-together, but it does help to have something definite on the horizon.
Righty ho - off to pay my respects to you all now...
