That's my News, not the stuff you get in the papers!
Firstly, I heard from Nice Policeman Phil (I imagine him in his 40s with a slightly harrassed look) that the report has been sent to the Coroner, and that it all might be done and dusted based on the report and written statements. Even if Mr H and I are not required to attend the hearing to give statements personally we will have the option to attend. Having been dreading the thought of it, now I rather want to go in the hope of learning 'Why', and oddly also for educational reasons to see what actually happens. It may well all be an anti-climax of course.
Secondly, I got the mark back for my first OU assignment for this year. It was ok but not as good as I'd hoped; but then a first assignment in a new year and with a different tutor is always going to be a learning experience. My tutor wrote a long and very useful critique and comments which was good - I've heard that some write virtually nothing. One of the things I found out was that "psychology as a discipline generally prefers succinct and concise sentences whereas the 'Arts' subjects are probably happy with longer sentences". Hmm, I suppose I'll have to save my arty sentences and semi-colons for my blog! Not that I'm a waffler but evidently I am by psychology standards.
She also suggested lots of other things I could have included, but with a word count of only 1000 words I think it would have risked becoming a list of bullet points. Still I got a good pass and it's a challenge for the 2nd assignment now.
