First and last post for January

After some serious self-doubt, I am pleased with my results on my second assignment.  My tutors feedback was helpful and I am feeling more confident.  I had wondered if I was taking the right path.

So on to February and a new course.  I officially begin AA100 (Arts Past and Present) this weekend.  I’m excited to be doing an academic course and nervous about meeting new people.

I continue to miss my mum, but it’s odd how my horror through her decline has been replaced with a softer sadness.  I missed her on my daughters’ 5th birthday.  I wonder if I pestered my mum as much as my children pester me.  I regret that I can’t ask her.  Most of all I feel sad for my dad.  As time passes, he seems to miss her more.

I am glad for the distraction that my studies provide.  I have also began to read To Kill A Mockingbird.  I know, I know.  I should have read it years ago.  I’ll let you know what I think of it next week.

Apologies for my absence and thank you for sticking around. x

  1. I loved ‘To Kill A Mocking bird’. Hope you enjoy it too. A strange solace comes with missing your mum, particularly after a relentless deterioration. I still miss mine after 16 yrs but it mellows and in a strange way they are always around for special events. It’s early days for you yet. Glad you’re enjoying your studies and it’s good to have you posting again.
