Nice one CV!

WELL DONE Herbie Herbs! Fantastic news. Wow!
I can't recommend going back to education in your crepeage highly enough. I think you'll love it and get a lot out of it. Really pleased for you.

What are the Darling Crepes of May (loved the Darling Buds though).

It's a thread from a group of ahem mature laydeez, Bindi, with only tangential S&B blush but we are very nice.

We can now fuss over your exams, dissertation, etc, Herbs. grin

Herbs, brilliant! So pleased for you. wine wine thanks thanks How long is the course for?

lalsy Mon 12-May-14 17:42:49

Herbs, that is brilliant, well done!

bigTillyMint Mon 12-May-14 17:43:35

Hope you're celebrating Herbs!

Well done, Herbs, that's fantastic news - I think the TofT can have a night off - break out the champagne. grin

My thoughts are with all of the DC who are doing exams or SATS: I still remember with horror DS's A Level results, it will stay with me for ever. But we worked through it, DS went to uni and is now very successful. Not saying this is going to happen to any of your DC, but it isn't the end of the world, it only feels like it!

Another one here who thinks the emoticon should come after the full stop.

Thanks for the nice new thread.

I've reported myself so hopefully other thread will be removed to avoid confusion <goes to stand in corner>

When you say "mature"...how mature smile

QueenQueenie Mon 12-May-14 18:18:12

Well Bindi... frankly forty to fabulously fifty ish... that sort of old "mature". We're not the other sort of mature, well not all the time anyway.

Can we tempt you to linger a little or are you less "mature"?

I'm, ridiculously, on a fast day, but may treat myself to a glass of wine after choir. Get me, living the high life.

I know it sounds like false modesty, but I really really thought I'd done so badly. I felt embarrassed when I came out, that I'd wasted their time and let myself down so badly.

I'm now coming over a bit Groucho Marx - can it really be that great!

beachyhead Mon 12-May-14 18:28:43

How long is the course, Herbs? And when does your new life start? So exciting.

motherinferior Mon 12-May-14 18:32:37

<wonders about glass of vicarious wine to celebrate>

I'm having onewine wine cheers herbssmile

herbaceous Mon 12-May-14 18:42:24

The full time course is a year, the part time two years. Full time would mean getting it over with, meaning new life can start, but part time would enable a bit of money to be earned and not be so full on.

All feel free to raise a glass!

motherinferior Mon 12-May-14 18:48:24

Herbs, my feeling is do it full-time. Part-time will expand to be full-time anyway.

NearTheWindymill Mon 12-May-14 18:53:52

I agree with you Rudy

Herbs Congratulations

BindiBach I can't speak for others - the ones I've met are mere slips of girls but I'm 54 this summer - 25 inside though grin.

Are you feeling better QQ

DD is relatively calm and composed. I think it's better now they've started.

addle Mon 12-May-14 19:06:19

CONGRATS! Herbs! that's fabulous and inspiring news, and simply means you have no idea how well you came across. Wonderful.

Windy - hope your back is ?a bit better today

Good luck to everyone's DCs with exams

hattymattie Mon 12-May-14 19:07:17

Agree with MI part-time has a habit of expanding. Go for full on - that year will go really fast.

bigTillyMint Mon 12-May-14 19:09:39

I third that - full-time or bust!

NearTheWindymill Mon 12-May-14 19:09:42

It is a bit, thank you. Saw lovely helpful new doctor today who has given me a prescription for new painkillers. Came home at four and have only answered a handful of e-mails. Had to get DH to help me put my tights on this morning and couldn't bend down to plug in the curling tongs when he had gone sad.

herbaceous Mon 12-May-14 19:19:16

My only thoughts re part time are a) I can 'keep my hand in' with writing, and thus keep it going as part of my 'portfolio career' once I become a teacher, and b) the money I could earn would stop DP being quite so pursed-lipped about the whole thing.

But I suspect you're all right - get it over with, and new career by 50!

Windy that sounds awfulsad
