... Work, Books and Beach Visits ...

I've been pretty quite on the blog front thanks to getting a volunteering placement at the boys school, where I work 3 days a week in the reception class.
I have also signed up to the Open University to do an access course which starts next month and then I will be starting a BA honours degree in Education Studies in October. The course will take 3 years if I do it full time or 6 years if I do it part time.
So im going to be pretty busy but I'm really looking forward to it.

I was thinking about letting my blog go, but I don't think I can just let it be. I'm going to knock the reviews on the head for now, as I just don't have the time for them, I may do one or two but for now this blog will just go back to a place for me to write down what we've been up to and how I'm getting on with my new venture.
I'll also be sharing the books that I've been reading. As my New Years resolution was to read more and I'm already onto my 3rd book of the year.
