Well, I survived the exam anyhow. Whilst I wouldn't say it was good, I will say that it could have been worse. And so I am now happily indulging the need to quilt, and the need to simply stop for a while.
In fact, some days I just can't figure out which of the many things that I want to do will be first, so I end up doing none of them.
I'm genuinely looking forward to the next course, but I am exceedingly glad for this period of downtime, where my own time is simply that - my own, to do or not with as I will.
Results are not due till Nov 29 so a bit of a nervous wait, but I do feel hopeful for a positive result - as ever anything over 40 will do but I live in hopes for the elusive distinction.
