Not eligible!


That’s what was written on my grant form that was returned to me this week (although, admittedly, without all the exclamation marks after it).

I’m disappointed, but I’m not going to throw a tantrum, as much as I’d like to. I’ve paid the college fee and I’m in….that’s the important bit. I can cope with tightening the purse strings for a while (although they’re pretty damn tight as it is). I’ll wait till next year when Ally decides she’ll go to college too, and I’ll have my panic attack then when we’re trying to pull money out of turnips to get us both through the college doors. Hmmm………turnip growing……there’s an idea……

For now I’m going to go to bed and get a good night’s rest and play catch up with all my assignments over Saturday and Sunday. I’ll also be attempting to fit in a Christmas cake tomorrow.

No, I don’t mean I’ll be trying to perform an awesome stunt by squishing myself into the mixing bowl; I mean I’ll be trying to fit it into my ‘schedule’.

This is the first free weekend that I’ve had in a long time. Who knows…..with a good night’s sleep I might even throw up an ‘interesting’ blog post tomorrow for a change.
