Well, I have sorted it out and it will take me two years to finish the degree now. Privately, I am relieved. As I have said before, it is not so bad if you live on campus, but it is sheer insanity when you are 2 hours train ride away. It means that I have to do my PP this weekend, sort out the last 2 essays and then in February just have 2 essays and a PP to prepare. It leaves the major dissertation and the last mod 2016-2017.

It will take 5 years all told (1 year Access, 2 FdA English Studies - now 2 BA English year 3), but at least I will go back to enjoying it. It has been one hell of a year and I will be glad when it is over.

I am so glad I took the decision to do this over 2 years. Right now, I am in bed nursing my ego and
