I am back after a break of a week or so. Last week I had to write a 3,000 word report on supporting children who have experienced or are experienced domestic violence. I was pleased with what I wrote and found the report format easier than a standard essay as it is more structured. I got my mark back already and scored 78% so very pleased with that 🙂 I am finding this module really good and have now picked for sure one of my level 3 modules as it is a similar topic. Turns out I need 10 more points at level 2 to complete the degree requirements so I can fit in the nutrition module I wanted to do after all which I am really looking forward too.
We were away for the weekend visiting family which was good. We got pretty lucky with the weather as well and fitted in steam train rides, some shopping, bowling, play centre, visiting and dinner out. I booked the disabled travel assistance this time which I will definitely do in future as knowing beforehand where the wheelchair space was going to be on the train was a massive help and saved a lot of stress. They also bring a ramp and will help with luggage too if needed.
Today was my youngests school trip to Marwell Zoo and I went along as he needs one-to-one support for trips. Again we were lucky with the weather and had a good day. Boo’s favourite seemed to be the piranha in the rainforst talk. I’m not sure if it was real and preserved somehow or a fake but he thought it was good and stroked the hissing cockroach and a snake. Top science flip cards are a massive hit and great distraction/refocusing tool. I can see these being well used .
This week I am mostly working on writing some magazine articles, one on crystal healing and few food related ones and I am planning to take part in Camp NaNoWriMo in April. I’m joining the rebels and aiming to write 10,000 words worth of blog posts and articles within the month rather than writing the standard novel. I still have my novel from last years NaNoWriMo to work on but I am not in a great hurry to get through that. Took me years to even get it on paper so it was a massive achievement just to get it down and make the 50,000 word count. I am hoping to take part again this year, most likely with the rebels again rather than writing another novel, unless I have edited/gone over the last one and could maybe add a second book continuing the story.
