Due 20th

Busy weekend, busy next weekend

Not even sure what I should be doing

Does this sound familiar?

Ha ha ha <deranged laughter>

Yes, yes, some can be smug envy

I'm supposed to be working on mine (got extension).

Can you do some in the evenings?

I was joking grin

Get on with it, both of you!

Bits of MN
An occasional cup of tea
DH brings be breakfast & lunch

But I only really have Sat & Sun mornings before DD gets back as after work I am just too tired

KatyMac Sun 12-Dec-10 09:00:55

Oh damn

I got up late this morning - not even had a cup of tea yet

So, so tired

You still have some time: maybe just do a bit every day?

I'm roasting pork loin and MNetting. I should be doing the essay as DP took DD out to meet some friends of his hmm I find it hard to focus, though, when I know I've only got an hour iyswim.

Prolesworth, did you get your tma back yet?

KatyMac Sun 12-Dec-10 11:41:11

Shouldn't have gone dancing last night

tiredofchallenge Sun 12-Dec-10 12:13:32

Can I join you in the countdown? Am still doing mine, but deadline is tomorrow! Must keep going, and get off Mumsnet, as now have less than 24 hours......have got a brief extension, but don't want to use it as it will just drag the agony of this TMA on even longer and I want it over so I can start thinking about Christmas!!

KatyMac Sun 12-Dec-10 12:40:39

Off to buy my mums Christmas tree, then go to the Christmas fair


KatyMac Sun 12-Dec-10 14:57:54

I'm back - now for lunch

How's it going tiredofchallenge?

tiredofchallenge Sun 12-Dec-10 15:30:42

Not that great - had to stop to take dd to her sport, grab some shopping and have to go back out to collect in a bit. Oh, and have decided to completely change the focus of the TMA as the approach I'd chosen just wasn't working!

How was the fair?

KatyMac Sun 12-Dec-10 16:31:47

Me neither

So tired

Well, finally submitted at 3.30am. Managed to get up to the right number of words, but don't think they're any good. Oh well, at least I have a few days before I need to start tackling the next one (am foolishly doing 2 modules at the moment!).

KatyMac Mon 13-Dec-10 12:37:50

Oh good

Now about mine......

loflo Mon 13-Dec-10 19:24:46

Feel your pain Katy - I submitted mine yesterday - doing a postgrad and haven't written an essay for 17 years. That TMA took nearly as long....... Hope it's nearly done!

KatyMac Mon 13-Dec-10 20:49:16

Erm not really no

& I am too tired now

loflo Mon 13-Dec-10 21:35:49

Can we help? Is it about something exciting wink

KatyMac Mon 13-Dec-10 21:44:33


Work based practise

Boring - I took a supposedly easy option because my last course was a bugger but fascinating; & it's very hard & boring

loflo Mon 13-Dec-10 22:37:49

Ah ok - DH had to literally stand over me and make me type. And I reverted to teenage strops and refused to do my homework! Got there eventually. But next year its cake decorating!

KatyMac Tue 14-Dec-10 07:49:46

What did you do this time then (fantasises about cake decorating)
