And have really been a slacker when it comes to blog posts this year.
Am I forgiven?
I have been really busy!
For anyone who missed it I have been doing an Access to higher education course at the local college.
That's one educational year, 4 psychology assignments (roughly 1,500 words each), 4 biology assignments (roughly 1,500 - 3,000 words each)including a power point presentation. 1 'independent' assignment for biology (3,000 words) and an extended assignment in psychology (5,000 words + experiment and research)
add to that a maths assignment, an IT assignment, and another maths assignment. the various bits and bobs for my portfolio (CV's, personal statements, reflection etc etc)
Add to that 2 exams (I know that doesn't sound much, but it has been 24 years since I last sat any exams!) and you might start to get the picture.
This week I am on work experience at the Lister hospital, which is just fantastic! yesterday I was on the ante and post natal wards, today I was out in the community with the community midwifes and tomorrow I am in the hospital ante natal clinic (my only complaint is that I am paying £6 a day to park!?!) I will be doing an assignment based around my work experience and a reflective diary.
So what can I say? I am busy - I also still have the family to look after (have had no luck finding somewhere else to put them!)
but it is worth it - I have passed the exams, and achieved the levels in the assignments I needed (except the final maths and IT assignments and extended assignments which aren't finished yet)so - yeah - that's it I am on my way, nothing should stop me now - 28th September and I will be student midwife Kirsty at Herts Uni
