    We got out timetables yesterday and mine is really full on. I have 3 days until 6pm! Still trying to work out what to do about the children.

    How about yours?[QUOTE=Gemmacantan33;67715484]

    It is a long way to Bognor, that is part of the reason I picked Winchester.

    We should compare timetables (when we get them), maybe we will be able to car share sometimes.


    Good morning,

    When do you all find out your timetables? I find out today! Slighly nervous about meeting my fello class mates today.

    Thankfully i look 25 so i doubt id ever get asked if im a lecturer but awkward! But a previously lecturer told me that we have maturity and life experience on our side and to not be afraid to use it!

    And kat, car sharing would be fab if our timetables are a good match!

    Hope you are ready for next week

    Kat. I am only in three days and all three of mine are to six.

    I have managed to get my boy into after school care to six and on two of the days he is being picked up by a child's minder. On the third I am going to have to record the lecture and listen to it in my own time. I have a dictaphone and I have spoken to the lecturer and he is fine with it.
    I had a minor wobble. But there are ways round it.

    Recording the lecture is a really good idea. I might suggest that as well. I have 2 of the 3 late days sorted and that may solve the problem!

    My lot said that as long as I am listening to the lecture and attending seminars it's all good. So I am going to test record one tomorrow and see how it goes.

    I'm currently using the park and ride service at st catherines hill. As i struggled to park near the uni even on the open day. Are you based on main campus? Perhaps we could have a chat on tuesday?

    Don't park at st Catherine's. Park at the south car park. The bus journey from st Catherine's is a joke when it's busy. You just go two stops from south. So much quicker.
