Bloomin 'eck

For the first and probably the last time in my Open University career, I've managed to get a distinction in the Creative Writing course I finished back in September.

I am shocked. But ecstatic.

I have been offered an Honours degree in Literature, which I will have the greatest pleasure in accepting on Monday. After I go and celebrate! Yay me :)))))

Congratulations! I have a friend here in Oz doing a similar course and of a certain age who has done the same--and seems surprised. Anybody who knows her is not?

Cheers LMN... it's a funny thing that we never appreciate our own talents as evenly as those around us can :)

Cheers Colin, thanks for the congrats... I'm still a little stunned - after four years of hard labour on it all, it seems surreal - I keep on looking at the paper I printed off from the OU website as though the words on the page might change...! It might sink in eventually :)

Cailleach said...

Tina said...
