The dissertation has been weighing me down for months. And actions to complete for my dissertation has been cluttering my ‘to do lists’ for a long time. Each crossed-out task is the visible proof that I’ve done my duty, but also reminded me of how much more was needed. References, books to read, editing. And at last, it was done.
My husband’s car was being serviced, and he booked the day off, so he drove me into Winchester to have ‘the damn thing’ as it has been referred to for the last eight weeks bound. It was still warm when I handed it into the office, and she stamped my receipt.
Giddy with the realisation that it was finally over I headed to the Winchester Hotel and Spa for a champagne cocktail and to make a slightly boozy vlog. Also, I tried my first Chamcham which was delicious.
I have completed all the required coursework for my MA in Creative Writing for Children, and marking it done felt fantastic!
