Finally Got My Assignment Sorted

I thought I might end up leaving it until the last minute to send my assignment in but had a couple of hours spare while Gift Box picked up my son's Superhero gifts on Facebook.

In all he picked up 3892 gifts and it finally stopped picking them up at about 0445. He must be psychically linked to this computer because the message came up on the screen just as I heard his bedroom door open on his way to the loo.

I am sooo disorganised. I checked on the OU site to see if there were any tasks I needed to complete and I hadn't listened to the audio on how to prepare for my assignment....didn't need it though as my assignment wasn't as difficult as I thought it was going to be.

The 2nd assignment is due in on the 26th of July and I have a busy week ahead so I might take the weekend off.

On Monday I have a council meeting to attend. Then on Tuesday there is a British National Party meeting...that should be fun. Then on Wednesday I am doing a 'be kind to neighbours' stint and walking my neighbour over to see the nurse at our medical drop in centre.

My son is going fishing in Plymouth on Thursday and is travelling back the next day so I am planning on doing a major declutter and spring clean of the flat while I have some alone time when I won't be asking him to shift his bum all day so I can get to what I want to do.

It's That Time Again!!!....Open University Blues

Oh Dear....have spent so much time on Facebook I am way behind with my first assignment for my OU Social Science course.

I am meant to be outlining inequalities in Gosport High street and comparing them with those I learned about when reading about City Road in Cardiff...in 750 words.

So far I have written about 700 words.....of waffle.

I think my best bet is to type all the waffle and loads more into a Word document and then do a quick edit to get rid of the worst waffle.

It's now 9am...went to bed about 2am and got up to go to the loo about 5am and magically appeared on Facebook...how did that happen?

Since then I have faffed about on the Avon site...waffled on the money saver expert site and blogged for a bit.

Nipping off now to drop off some Avon brochures and pick up a TV mag from Morrisons.

Oh well.....being my own boss while studying sort of works that way with me.

I need to send the assignment in on-line by Tuesday...so I will most likely be working on it till silly O'clock on Monday :)
