Did a psychology access course. Am now on a harder access course for 6 months (Social Sciences) then can move on to the psychology degree next september. It's hard but it's improved my life a lot to have that going on the side and be working on something as well as looking after DS and I love the subject so learn a lot and find it really interesting.
I'm starting next week on a history degree. Am doing 60 credits this year, have disabled 12yr old DD, 14 month old DD and am 5 months pregnant with DS1 and will give birth half way through :p If I manage it this year anyone can!
I'm really really looking forward to it, I think precise time management is the key to getting through with so much else on.
My daughter, who left uni early due to imminent baby! She now has two, age 5 and 2 and is three years in of 6 years of law and I have to stay up late at night encouraging her, it does get harder as each year passes but she is determined. She works at CAB one day a week as an advisor to gain experience, in a pub for three very long shifts a week (her MIL and husband help with the children then) and she has just been offered a one day a week internship with a law firm. She did say that she had been very lucky with the timing of her application re funding as she would never have got it now.
She is exhausted, really so and does get low but she has a good brain and needs to use it. That keeps her going - that and the thought of maybe being able to move out of their teeny house one day. She has to wait until they have gone to bedbefore she can study, which she does to the very loud backtrack of SIL playing computer games against online friends. I'm very impressed by her determination and staying power.
