Planning for the future…

I’m not the best at being consistent with my blog posts at the moment.  Real life is moving at a faster pace, the children are lovely and I’m finding more time for reading yet less time for writing.  I have also been thinking more and more about my future and what my descendants will say about me.  I don’t suppose our ancestors really thought about what we could say about them.  They lived in simpler times; times where the vast majority of men worked to put food on the table and women spent their days bringing up the children and taking pride in their homes.  My ancestors were mostly working class ag labs, nailors and miners.

The world has progressed, women now have the right to vote; women can hold high status positions; and women are no longer expected to stay at home with the children.  My place, while my children are still young, is at home with them, but what about when my children grow up?
It is with this in mind that I have taken my next step… starting from October, I will (as long as everything falls into place) be going back to study with the Open University.  The end result will be, should everything go to plan, a BA (hons) in History with my primary focus being on Heritage Studies.  My time will be precious from October, but the baby starts Nursery in January leaving me with 2.5 hours each day to study!

    I read your interview at Geneabloggers and thought I’d stop in to say hello. Like you, I love cemeteries too. Good luck with your studies in the fall. Heritage Studies sounds like the perfect area for a family historian.
