First Introductory Blog *gulps*

Well, I'm afraid this blog is going to be an introductory, plain-old boring one.

My aim for this blog is to show what can be achieved (or not!) by a working, studying Mum. Hopefully it will help out any students, Mums, Dads, and will provide a bit of light entertainment in between!

I plan on blogging about all the different types of hats I wear:-

  • Student Hat: My Open University History degree. I plan on blogging weekly about the progress, book reviews, any hints and tips all leading up to the madness of the exam period.
  • Mum Hat: The kids, pregnancy, motherhood. I have two daughters aged 9 and 1 and I am currently pregnant, so busy year ahead.
  • Wife Hat: I enjoy being a wifey-type so I may post some recipes or tips from time to time
  • Worker Hat: I work at the University of Manchester part time in administration and love it. I may post about the balancing-act that is being a Mum and a worker.
I hope this will be of interest to you. The annoying thing is that I wear so many metaphorical hats, and you know in real-life, I'm just not a hat person at all . . . 


  1. Hi Kerrie. Having just abandoned an OU module and lacking some direction in my studies, I was looking for something positive from a student of A200. It looks like an option for me taking me towards a degree in humanities with history and I must say that the feedback on OU site wasn't too positive. Glad I decided to google it et voila... I will consider the module over the next week and should I take the plunge I think that I will start my reading and viewing in the near future to get a bit of a head start.. Always great to read the positives and good tips and boy do i need them for note taking lol..

  2. I'm glad it is of some help to you Alan. A200 was a brilliant achievement, but a tough one. I wish you all the best in your choice and hope you enjoy whatever you decide.

    I discovered your blog recently and it gave me the necessary push to write my own blog, for I'm in the same boat. We're even studying a similar course - history/humanities. However I'm not working, so I really take my hat off to you! I'm not a hat person either.
    I wish you all the best in your studies and look forward to following your stories.
