HSBC student bursary competition

Wouldn't £15,000 make supporting myself and my family through my higher education that little bit easier?
Well Kind old HSBC are giving 8 students the chance to win a 15k bursary!! 

The brief was to create a video detailing how £15,000 would help you make your mark on the world. There are certainly some ambitious people in this competition, entrepreneurs, world peace activists, beauty queens, fashion designers... It's a real mixed bunch. 

Follow the link and have a browse .... Search for my video "Enabling children to achieve" by Lottie Stokes.... and if you think it is worthy of a place in the final, cast your vote by hitting the vote button. 

It's unfortunate that it's such a popularity contest to get to the final, and those with the most Facebook friends are already whizzing off into the lead, but I'm determined to get my video into that final!! Eeek.... help... 

Back to school

Anyone else get excited about buying a new pencil case for the start of term? Oh this years is quite the disappointment. Bit plain really, no fake fur or flashing lights.

.... Yes I'm 27... But tomorrow I'm going back to school... Well Uni! I've already been and had a mooch around and felt massively out of place but hey ho! It wasn't so bad, I wasn't the oldest.... Or the youngest.... Which I'd been panicking about... Actually I met someone the same age as me, with two kids and lives just down the road :) Thank goodness for Hazel...

September has brought with it some big changes and my cart-wheels are slightly more frequent right now. I've started my new job (well same sort of job, different school) and have been enjoying it immensely. My little girl has hopped on up to year 5 which has added to the crows feet. Not so little anymore... and I've brought some new pens, oh yes, ones that promise to write first time, every time... They, coupled with my new pencil case have left me well equipped for registration day tomorrow.

If you get a second please make sure you check out my entry into the HSBC student bursary competition

"Like" the page and then search for my video "Enabling children to achieve" it's all about working with children with special educational needs :) Thanks everyone.
