Slipping away

Visible to anyone in the world

Today was the first day I realised just how difficult (and frustrating) studying remotely can be. 

My first tutorial booked and I was feeling excited. Time booked 13:00 - 15:00

Went for a walk with the kids and pony this morning while hubby was in work then had Had help him and family with a bit of logging until 12:00. Enough time for lunch and getting myself set up online ready. 

Well, as you can imagine it went Tits up. Was anxious to leave the logging but ended up having to bring the youngest home with me. Praying he would sleep on way home after a busy morning. Did he hell. Hubby didnt get back until 13:20. Missed the beginning and then to top it off, when I turned the computer on it took a further 20 mins completing updates. 

I was so angry and annoyed and frustrated. Hubby knew I had this tutorial booked. Now I feel my excellent headway and pace I gathered at the beginning Is slipping away. Still a week ahead. Jut saw Ned to write up final draft of TMA. I was hoping to have been done with that today. Then tomorow I could concentrate on the maths. 

All I can say is thank god that I Am fortunate enough to work in education and now have 2 weeks half term To get TMA, iCMA and get myself a few weeks ahead in preparation for TMA 02. 

C'mon! You still got this. Knuckle down tomorow and get it done. 

Bit shit I may have to give my cycling a miss to get this TMA done - but I guess I better get accustomed to this for the next few years.
