Getting Myself Ready for Open University

It’s only a month until I officially start my BSc Honours Psychology degree with the Open University. A month is no time at all, it will be here before I know it. In fact, while my official start date is October 6th, my module website opens on September 13th. That’s three sleeps away, which is a blink and you’ll miss it sort of time frame. Holy shit, am I ready? I’m not sure if I’m ready?! This whole OU thing started about a year ago. Having previously looked at funding options, I didn’t think doing a degree was going to […]

Get Tech Confident with Post Office Digital Drop-ins

How confident are you with technology? As a family, we’re pretty forward thinking when it comes to our tech. We’re always looking for the latest smart home gadgets, and like to make our lives easier with technology. I’m of a unique generation, I can remember a time when not everyone had a mobile phone, or a home computer; Things kind of exploded during my childhood, and suddenly everyone had one.

I though I should fill you in with some of the things that have happened in the last few months. To be honest, nothing much of note has happened, but there are a few little tidbits to share.

Brightening up our Son’s Bedroom

My son’s bedroom is a bit meh. It’s the last room of the house that could really do with an update. When we first moved in, it was probably the room that needed sorting the least. That’s why it’s been left until last. But now that the rest of the house has been revamped, his room really stands out. There’s nothing wrong with it really, it’s just meh. So we’ve decided to refresh it a bit, and we’re going to try and do it on a budget. Refreshing a child’s bedroom doesn’t have to cost the earth. A wee sort out and […]

Sleep Deprivation: A Parent’s Reality

I think there is one universal truth about becoming a parent… You will never get a good nights sleep again. Yeah, you heard me right; Never. Never ever. You give up your right to sleep the moment the lines appear on that test. Life from that point is basically just a blur of late nights, early mornings and broken sleep. Ok, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit. But honestly? Not much. My children are eight and nine now, and I’m still severely sleep deprived. I remember those sleepless baby days, where I’d pace the living room in the middle […]
