Son #1

Visible to anyone in the world

Number 1 son enjoyed his first week of University.

He caught the Fresher's flu, so is taking as much flu plus as he can get crammed in him.

It has also worn him out, he has been asleep by 9.15 pm every night.

He did make me laugh, moaning about his timetable, which is 16 hours a week!

Mon 10am- 4pm

Tues 11am - 5pm

Wednesday- OFF- reading day.

Thursday 12pm-2pm

Friday 1pm- 3pm.

Apparently for son #1 this is a 'harsh' work load!!!!

So i shared with him my workload..

Mon 8.30 am to 5.30pm work.... 7pm to 9.30pm OU study

Tue 8.30 am to 5.30pm work.... 7pm to 9.30pm OU study

Wed 8.30 am to 5.30pm work.... 7pm to 9.30pm OU study

Thursday 8.30 am to 5.30pm work.... 7pm to 9.30pm OU study

Friday 8.30 am to 5.30pm work.... 7pm to 9.30pm OU study

Sat- OFF- reading day and doing the garden, shopping, housework and ferrying 3 ungrateful children around to various activities.

Sun- 2pm- 6pm OU Study.

Apparently it's okay, i 'am older' so i can cope with this workload and complaining about it is just me 'being dramatic'

Son #1 might live to see week 2 of university, only 'might' mind....

Wow, 29,000 views.

The counter is fairly racing along now.

Thank you to everyone who takes the time to visit and hopefully read this blog.

It has been a funny few days.

The 12th of August would have been my dads birthday, and it is 18 months now since he died.

Son #1 turned 19 on the 15th of August, and got his A-level results on the 16th.

It turned out that when he went onto UCAS to be cleared, the university of Portsmouth had upped his unconditional anyway.

So i have had a week off from work, but am now emotionally exhausted and have to go back to work tomorrow
