No internet!!

I've not been posting here as I've got no internet at home! My service provider upgraded their service and my old router can't cope, so I've signed up with another provider and have just got to wait for the switch over now. It was a choice of either stay with the original ISP and buy a new router for £50, or switch to another ISP, they provide the router, charge me less each month and give me £50 credit...... hmmmm, tough decision!

Time passes..... slowly.

28 days today. A calendar month tomorrow.

No results yet for my assignment, I'm hoping it's due to lack of markers, not bad news...

I finished my last assignment for work!! My deadline was 12th March and I finished the bulk of it last night, with a proof read and minor changes this morning before printing and posting it. Just got to wait for the result now but the pass mark is only 40% so I'm really hoping I've done enough. One of the biggest problems I have with it is that the word count is really quite small compared to the amount of info they want, and I find it hard to keep things succinct and get all the relevant points in without waffling..... oh well we'll see! I do get one chance for a re-write so all is not lost if I fail! If I've passed then I will be a qualified GDMA. Which means no more study hooray!!

Here's a picture (since I haven't posted any in a while) of the subject of my assignment.... Alfie!!!

Today I rang PetPlan and cancelled Pippa's insurance. I don't know why but I've been dreading doing that, and it was very upsetting. Still, it's done now, I think I've done everything I need to now.

That makes it feel so very final.

Week one.

My first week without Pippa is over. I can't believe it's been a week already, yet it's been the longest week of my life. I miss her so much.

Yesterday and today I did my First Aid refresher course, and passed the assessment today. Hopefully I'll never need to use the info, but it's good to keep it up to date just in case.
