Sad news...

My beloved Mum passed away this morning.


1926-2010

The Dr's managed to treat the pneumonia but she had COPD and her lungs just gave up.    I know it  was a final journey she had to make but it was so hard for me.  I didn't want her to be alone so I stayed with her and she went peacefully.  God Bless Mum my best friend.

Textile Degree

If you've been following my other blog over the past few years you will know I have been studying with the Open College of Arts

The OCA was recently confirmed as an approved degree provider by Student Finance England, SF Northern Ireland and hopefully SF Wales so now degree student on low incomes may qualify for Government funding.

As I got funding for my OU course I am pretty sure I qualify so early in September I applied.  I got an email to say I would be officially enrolled on my degree course on 1st October and I should receive my 1st Module in the next week or two.

I am now officially a part time undergraduate studying for a degree in Textiles (when it is validated by their accrediting University).
Alongside the Textiles 1: A Creative Approach for which I received an A 76% I am planning to study
I hope anyone that is interested in joining me on my journey will follow my blog at OCA Creative Arts Journey
