Wednesday - back to college day

Hello everyone, well I was back to college today - I have smothered my wall with pictures like the ones above - but they are all in black and white.  I don't know what Im going to do when I've finished smothering my wall with images of trees - i was hoping to talk to a tutor today but I didnt get a chance.  Was so busy today - I had to pop home from college to use the computer (as I forgot my memory stick!), then I got back to college at lunch time and we had a meeting - then it was time to pick the kids up so I didnt really get much done. Anyway Im focused and doing stuff so thats good!! We got an essay brief today - got to do 2,000 - 3,000 words on our own personal development - shouldnt be hard for me to talk about myself LOL!!! Or we can do a presentation for half hour if we dont want to write the essay. Not sure what Im going to do yet.

Not going to London tomorrow now!! Its been called off til a few weeks time as there are not many exhibitions on at the moment so not worth our tutor taking us. Anyway at least I can still look forward to it.

Anyway, you may be asking why I'm surprised. Well I'm surprised because for the last two years now it's been hard with my stepdaughter.  Bit of a long story but when I first met John we were very very close and were for three years - then all of a sudden she turned 16!! LOL and she was very distant from both of us for a long time - anyway she is nearly 18 now and since about October last year she has started to become friendly again.  Well tonight she asked John to go up and see her for a drink and she specifically asked that I come too!!! Well Im very pleased that she is finally accepting me again!!! So just wanted to share that with you.

Will write again soon.

Love Laine xxx

Hello! Lainey, Allan has never married, and no siblings,just us two to worry about (lol) My 'Boys' are grown, youngest lives in France, and my other Son may be leaving soon with his family  for France or Spain.
My youngest took ages though to accept his Mum had a relationship. We have been together 18yrs in March, so they have now accepted it -I think. Allan is a lot younger than me, which may have been the 'problem' although it was never mentioned!

Thanks for visiting me

Kids can be weird at any age. My two boys could never accept Andy and I haven't seen them for thirteen years. They've never met him but I think they are prejudiced like their father as Andy's black. I just leave them to get on with their lives and maybe some day they'll come round, it's up to them. Probably John's daughter was going through a phase while she was growing up but she's out of it now. Glad you're getting sorted out at college. Jeannette.

Great news about your stepdaughter. I'm sure that will all work out as she gets older.
Too bad about London though.
Best Wishes,

I'm glad your stepdaughter is accepting you :-)
Sounds like you have been busy at college and sorry to hear that your trip to london is off but hopefully it'll be better seeing as how you have to wait ;-)

I've been having a similar experience with my daughter.  Through most of high school she did everything she could to be a thorn in my side.  Now, she's 18, she's away at college, and we're closer than we've been in a very long time.  I think it's just the way the teenage years play out.  I'm delighted to have her "back".

Hi...I came to your journal  and wanted to comment because I too am a mature student. I am doing an access course in Humanities, and hope to get accepted for Uni this year. I also do art, so you are more than welcome to pop over to my journal:

16 is a tough age isn't it, I'm glad your Stepdaughter is coming around again now.  I seem to remember having problems with my Stepmum - ish, they weren't married - at the same age.  Honestly, I think at 16 they have problems with almost everyone, lol!!  18 is much better ;o)
