Thought I'd pop a very quick post on, as a few of you are probably wondering what happened to my Uni course.........well, the day I was supposed to go back to Uni after our summer break was the day when they thought my Gran was going to pass away, so we went to see Gran instead. I didn't go in the week after - as again I wanted to be able to go to Gran if need be.

In between all this I spoke to my friend who told me our course had no funding, a part time tutor, and everyone was being talked into going to Canterbury on a Fine Art course. How annoyings that - after a years worth of work. They were offering us all a place on the Fine Art course, and could join the course into their second year - but I wasn't sure if that was what I actually wanted to do. I hummed and ahhed, but then found out the course leader wasn't very nice - and I doubt he would have understood if I had to have time off because of work, so that was that! They have been rubbish - they never even bothered to contact me to see if I was coming back or what! The Fine Art course actually sounds brilliant - so I'm quite disappointed I decided not to do it, and that it wouldn't really be appropriate now. The Uni looks great, and they are doing some really interesting stuff - oh hum....

So, that's the tale. Funny how things happen isn't it. It's a shame, but I suppose I'm now learning, which I really felt I needed to do, and have something that now gets me out of house and bouncing off the walls! All turned out right in the end eh!
And Uni was great, met some great people who I will definitely stay in touch with

Hi Leonie

Thanks for updating us on your Uni course, I wondered what had happened with it.

Anyway, you now have a super new job and I'm sure you made the right decision in taking it. Really enjoyed watching you with Joanna Sheen today, you certainly seemed to get on well together. I'm sure Joanna appreciated the fact that you are a crafter too and knew what she was talking about.

Hi Leonnie

Sorry to hear about your course. I guess this is one of those life's like that moments.

As one door closes another opens and all that. You are doing so well on C&C and there are plenty of online classes available these days.

A couple of great places to check out are; Great online classes for painting (home study courses) Tutors on a range of subjects

There is an online university with the option of having work graded towards real degrees. I'll mail you when I can find the details.

Take care, all the best

Billie :)
