I hope you are all well as this post reaches you dear readers. I am in the last few weeks of my Creative Writing module with the Open University, and I am due to start my OCN Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming this Monday coming. I have my final piece of coursework to put together (End of Module Assessment) – squeaky bum time! Whilst I have made my decision in relation to opting to write fiction, poetry or life writing and have made a start on my freewrites; my head is buzzing with its eventual plot-line and sub-plots, characters, narrative, point of view, language, dialect and idiolect. The list is endless. But the one thing that’s certain in my mind, I have the title.
As for my dog grooming course, I am returning to MCDT in Fazakerley, Liverpool. This means staying with Mum for the beginning of the week, and travelling back home mid-week…for approximately 16 weeks. I can do this, sure I can.
In other news, Lee and I went to Chester a week ago on Monday, to meet his family, and to mooch around the city. Which included a trip to WHS and Waterstones – I really had to restrain myself in the stationery department in WHS; and Lee kindly treated me to my set text for my next module with the OU – Western Philosophy: An Anthology – edited by John Cottingham. It’s a colossal book, however I am looking forward to getting stuck into this. We also visited Virtual Reality Escapes and had a taster session – £5.00 for half an hour. Donning the HTC VR headgear with controllers in both our hands, we were teleported into a world of zombies. Takes a lot of getting used to. I kept on walking into the black curtains that separated us in the centre, and didn’t really know what I was doing. I felt a tad claustrophobic and sweaty, and had to escape five minutes early. However, having said this, I think it will make a good birthday present for Tom and Joe later on this year.
Well goodnight then tiddlypeeps. Catch up with you all again soon.
