A multitude of birthdays and discovering interests I never knew I'd have!

First of all I have to wish my lovely Dad a very Happy 60th Birthday today, a (slightly) belated Happy 6th Birthday to Lewis and Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law, Shona!

Well it's the start of week 6 of college today. I, however, am at home today as Miss Shortie is ill again - this time some sort of throaty-coughy bug. So I thought it was really about time to update the blog (I hope I don't end up only ever updating here when one of my children is ill).

I thought I'd talk about the classes I'm most enjoying. Comm. 4 is definitely a fave - it's basically English which was the one class I was actually good at at school. But the most surprising ones for me are my History and Politics classes - I honestly thought I'd tolerate them to get through the course but I'm actually becoming very interested in them - so much so that I was considering getting a book about WWI, even though (get this) it's not something we get tested on. I may have to lie down in a darkened room.

I have to admit I'm struggling to 'get' Sociology right now. There's so much to remember! I've done quite a bit of revising on it over the past week so hopefully it's going to start sinking in soon.


  1. That's a lovely picture :) I liked English, History and Politics too,Sociology not so much, but Psychology, yes!

  2. We've not really got going on Psychology yet, so as yet undecided.

  3. I'm sorry to hear your little one is sick again! However, I am glad to hear you're enjoying subjects you didn't think you would! That's something I really love about uni - it opens up a whole new world you didn't know was out there! My interest in Ancient Greek literature started at uni - it was something I didn't think I'd ever be interested in (Jane Austen was more my thing!). Hope your daughter gets better soon.

  4. Thanks Caz, I think she will hopefully be okay for wednesday which is my next day in College x
