A ROUND BLOGGING LETTER



It's traditional at this time of year to send a Round Robin Letter to friends and family you've not been in touch with for a while...so here's my Round Blogging letter...to let all my blog pals know that I'm thinking of them and wishing you all a truly Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years.

My studies are going really well and I really enjoy University.....I just hope I can continue there!!! I'm struggling financially to stay on..........we are lucky in England to have a Benefits system...but it seems ludicrous that I can stay at home doing nothing and receive money to live on plus get my rent and council tax paid...yet if I go to Uni all my student loan gets me is enough to pay my rent!...and Babergh District Council (unlike other student's councils) still expect me to pay full council tax!!!! But I mustn't complain..... I'm sure many have been hit by the recession that we are all going through.

So let's put that behind me ....'cos it's CHRISTMAS!!!!.....time to worry about that in the New Year.

So first of all a bit of 'own trumpet blowing'.....I was the only one to get a '1' for an assignment...Yahoo!!! Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks????

To be honest I'm quite boring at the moment....all I do is READ!!!!....everything I'm learning is so fascinating....I'm reading everything I can get my hands on!

I did have a brilliant trip to London to see the Capa photography exhibition and a a play about Thomas Hobbes at Wilton's Music Hall...you can FEEL the history in the theatre!!!

Typical!!!! it seems I can't upload any more photos...even though I've PAID my Google account....I sometimes think the 'God of Capitalism' is working against me.....and it's put a bit of a damper on this post as I had SOOOOOOO many photos I wanted to show you.

So no photos...no fancy Christmas Wish Glittery animations......................

All I can do is wish all of my blogpals a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and the HAPPIEST OF NEW YEARS.....

and to a special blogpal who is recovering from an operation....FORTE!!!!!!

So glad you are enjoying your university life. Its odd you have to pay council tax. But as you say time enough to sort that out!
Wishing you and your family the Merriest of Christmas Wishes and all the best for a peaceful New Year!

Lovely to hear from you Ruth!

The benefits system here doesn't seem to help the people who really need it I have to say! I'm so pleased you are enjoying your studying and well done on the 1st for your assignment!

May I wish you a very Happy Christmas and may the New Year bring you good Health and Happiness. xx

A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Ruth!

I'm glad your studies are going so well - it's wonderful.

I hope 2009 is a wonderful year for you. And I hope that special blogpal that we both know has a great year too - I just stopped by his place and no new post but I hope he will be back soon.

Hi RUTH!
Very belatedly may I wish you all the best for the 11 months left of 2009...
... I DID see this post earlier but have had dreadful computer problems and it was probably on a night when I got frozen/logged out/craahed/etc etc about 31 times so all I managed to do was add you as a "Follower" to my list
... yeah you're right about the ridiculous situation re being a student
actually i have heard stories about students signing on all through 3 and 4 year degrees... though these DO come from another era (Tory Britain in the early 90s!!!)
Take care Ruth still thinking of you...
