2,000 words nearer

Yes I am now 2,000 words nearer finishing my Open University course - assignment number 5 was sent off at the weekend - only one more assigment and then the big end of course assignment - 4,000 words eek!!! This last module is on the subject of politics and violence - rather topical at the moment I think. I am sooo looking forward to finally finishing studying and get back to crafting and stuff.

Not a lot else has been happening in my little part of the world here this month. Although good news today Andrew came home from school to tell us he is being awarded a Citizen of the Year Award for 2011, the local police force give two awards to each of the local schools and Andrew has been chosen as one of them for his school. There is an awards ceremony in May and then they get to go for a day out somewhere. So both of my boys will have received an award this year - proud mummy moment!!

Celebration & Award!

Well February seems to have gone the same way as January - filled with working and studying. Working has now finished again as the girl I was covering for has returned to work, so I might just get a bit more breathing space - although I still to study a lot until June.

February saw us celebrating Mum's 80th birthday. We had a lovely time with presents, cake and champagne of course.

Last week my eldest, John, was away to Dumfries to collect his Young Quality Scot Award at a two day awards ceremony. This is a national award for young people aged 16-19 who do volunteer work in their community. John was nominated for his work with Galloway Talking Newspaper, schools committee and work with young people in the church. Needless to say I am very proud of him.
