Free at last....

At bloody last! The exam was tackled in the manner of a sex starved chihuahua making the acquaintance of a female poodle...with gusto. Whether I answered the questions correctly is debatable but I no longer care as the course is now finished. I'll settle for a pass and accept the certificate, thankyou.
To celebrate I had a very welcome cup of tea and removed all of the OU stuff to a large box where it can remain for the duration. Naturally, beers will be consumed tonight but as I am at work tomorrow, moderation will be the watchword. I am off at the weekend and there'll be a feast of rugby and football to shout at in the pub.
Oddly enough, Mrs.C made an interesting insight into my behaviour in that I appeared to be in mourning over the past few days because the course had ended. Spot on but it also allowed an insight into why and the link to my childhood.
"Psychobabble Alert!"
Libraries and reading were certainly a better distraction from an interesting homelife for a child compared with the then alternatives of drugs and mischief. Sadly, the discipline of studying and direction were not learnt at the time.
I have decided to give the OU a miss next year as I'll be moving on to the next stage of my psychotherapy training. I can also spend more time having a life and spending valuable time with family and friends. There is also the chance of travel to foreign parts and I will need the readies for that.
I assembled the new exercise bike and we have all given it a try out...excellent. Confusing for the hound who is fascinated by all the activity but no corresponding movement. I have worked out a vague exercise regime for the next two weeks and I will build up my stamina gradually. I particularly enjoyed cycling three kilometres yesterday whilst the rain poured down outside...nice and dry.
I have bought a couple of new beers from Tesgrows and they are now awaiting my attention.

Congratulations on getting through the studying.

As if we didn't have reason enough to be out this weekend, I've just heard from Dom who's back in town again on Saturday...

Glad you are finally free of the studies, for now! When do you get the final results? I hope you don't have to wait too long. I hate that waiting....

Results just before Christmas, I think.
I'm now ploughing through the new course which I could really have done without. But it's one I asked for over five years ago and it finally came through. It's also incredibly useful for my work so I am keen to do it.

Good to see Dom's back in town...more reasons to celebrate.
