Just a quick one...

How on earth is it the run up to assignment time already? seems like only two minutes ago that I was trying to get the last lot done!! *Sigh*

I have had two assignments to do every week since I started this semester....the learning log (which I've blogged a couple of entries can read them here and here) and a weekly question based on social policy and structures....the learning log is due on the 5th of May, the weekly questions on the 12th and I have a 3,000 word essay on the history of Patient and Public Involvement in Health due on the 19th. The other module is based on Organisational Management and is based on the work I've been doing setting up the Community Partnership (Which I've also blogged about)....I've a ten minute verbal presentation to give on the 18th and a 3,000 word essay to hand in on the 25th. Roll on the end of the moment it feels like it's never ending!!

Anyway, three of my lovely blog friends have given me this award....isn't it gorgeous! Thank you Lily at When life gives you lemons..., DJ at Chez Aspie and Sue at Writing Life. You guys are great :-D

You all know what I'm like for not sticking to the rules of these awards so it will come as no surprise to you all that instead of selecting 10 bloggers (which is what I'm supposed to do) I'm selecting all of you that are in my 'and I read these' section on the right side of my blog. I love blogging that think your all fab!!

Thanks for thinking of us and giving us these awards.

As for your assignments.. gah! Lots and lots in so little time! Keep calm and keep on as you are - I'm sure you'll do well!

BT said...

Thank you so much Carol. It's a very pretty award, isn't it? I'll happily collect it now!

Blu said...

Thanks for sharing your award!. PS are you still wearing your pants on the outside! LOL superhero you!

Molly Potter said...

Thank you Carol you lovely one.

if you are anything like me, when there is a huge THING in the impending in-tray, a lot of other things get your house tidy> Are your toe nails clipped? ! ?

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Sweetie, I am in desperate need of being cheered up today. You are a true friend. Thank you xx

Juniper said...

Thank you for the award and oh my you sound busy!!! Good luck with all the papers and the presentations. Reminds me of last year and the mad rush to the finish line, never ending assignments. In some very twisted way I almost miss it, there is that nice feeling once you have pushed yourself and managed to do all the tasks plus manage to learn a bit in the process! At least it sounds like interesting work.

French Fancy said...

Thank you lovely one - the thing is that I'm now an Award Free Zone, but I love that you gave it to me.

As for your workload - this myth about students being lazy - well maybe the young school leavers are but I think when we are fully enthused and committed as indeed you are, then there is nobody going to work harder than you.

Good luck with getting everything done on time - but I know you will do brilliantly.


Debs said...

I don't know how you keep up with all these assignments.

Many thanks for the award, I'll post about it this week.

Mark said...

Thank you Carole - us Wilts bloggers need to stick together. Though I sometimes become a Wales blogger when the fancy takes me.

I have an assignment to do that I keep putting off - problem is, I keep blogging instead.

Carol said...

LadyFi - You are most welcome (and I knew that if I didn't do it now then I'd forget about it!)

There is a hell of a lot to be done!! I'm up-to-date on my Learning Log (have just finished last weeks), am nearly done on the weekly questions and have the necessary books I need for the 3,000 word essay....not started any written work for the other module yet!! Thanks for having faith in me :-)

BT - It's a lovely one which is why I wanted to share it with everyone!

Blu - Of course I am...what kind of super hero do you think I am? *sniggers*

Molly - OMG do you do that too? Yep, house is clean, washing up-to-date and I'm now even considering starting on the garden!! Toe there's an idea...*goes off to get clippers*

Crystal Jigsaw - Awww hon, I'm sorry your feeling blue today. Hope the award went a little way to helping! *hugs*

Juniper - You miss it?? Blimey!! I can't wait for it to be over so I can have my life back (well, at least till the 2nd year starts!!).

I don't know how you found the time what with everything else going on in your life *Takes hat off to you*

French Fancy - I know that your an award free zone but that's not going to stop me giving them to you (hope you don't mind!).

OMG to be lazy would be lovely!! Oh how I long for I said earlier...roll on the end of May!!

Thanks honey, I hope I'll get it all done (and manage to get good grades into the bargain!)

Debs - LOL, neither do I!!

Your very welcome hon :-)

Carol said...

Mark - You sneaked in there!

We do indeed...and I think I'll let you off with the fact that sometimes you blog from Wales...sometimes I blog from Scotland so erm, kinda feel like people in glass houses etc

I'm finding it tough to get the motivation for this one if I'm honest...struggling with the weekly 400 word questions. I asked for advice with structuring them but was told that that was part of my learning so I'm still struggling with them!! I'll get there in the end...*she says crossing her fingers*

Queenie said...

Carol, you're doing a great job. The end of May will be here before you know it, and then you can celebrate!

Carol said...

Mark - Sorry, meant to write good luck with your assignment but pressed publish by mistake!

Carol said...

Queenie - LOL, you managed to sneak in too!

I tell you, it doesn't feel like I'm doing a great the moment it feels more like swimming through treacle!! Your right though, the end of May will be here before I know it and then I can paint till my wee heart's content!!

cheshire wife said...

I am not really supposed to be here, but thank you very much for the award. I know how difficult it is to stay away even when there is a mountain of other jobs to do. I am sure that you will do brilliantly with your assignments and your blog will still be here when your course is completed.

Calico Kate said...

Previously Lost in France - You are very welcome my dear :-)

Cheshire Wife - I'm not supposed to be here at the moment either...I've given myself 30 mins faffing time before getting back to it!!

Suburbia said...

Ooooh thank you! That's a pretty one, I shall treasure it :)

Calico Kate said...

Just read your reply to me on here - that's very kind of you to say nice things about my writing.
Just got the results - 67% not great but 'spose it is still a pass. Now for the next two one in a fortnight and the other by the end of May, gulp. Now to put my award onto my blog to cheer me up!

Carol said...

Suburbia - You are very welcome hon :-)

Calico Kate - That's a B and that's pretty darn good in my book!!

Good luck with the other ones...I'll be thinking of you writing yours whilst I'm writing mine!! (Why do we do it eh?)
