Although there are tests, you don't have to pass them! And you can do the studying whenever you like, even months after the course has officially finished, often, because the content stays online.No worries, the MOOCS are usually a weekly course of 6-8 weeks some are as little as 3, yes some have tests and yes you can buy a certificate if you wish.
MY MIL still goes to the hairdresser once a week!! She's been doing that since the beginning of time!! She will lay in her bed all week - not want to do ANYTHING - but by golly - on "hairdo day", she's up and ready to go. And believe it or not - that is some of MY me time - when she's sitting in the parlor, I'm able to shop a little ON MY OWN! And then, it dawned on me - I can get a little pampering too. So, in the warm months, while she's having her hair done, I will get a pedicure!! NICE!!!!!Hi my me time I booked myself into the hairdressers once a week that's MY time and although most the time I worry at least I feel a little better for having a little pampering and time out
We have mixed mulled wine, with cooking, and singing to South Pacific to good effect: Happy Happy Happy Talk. Combination therapy at its best and now we have food to look forward to: cooked in coconut oil of course.Me too patsy.....very annoying I find prosecco is best for my migraine-sensitivity x
Thanks Beetroot. G LReference to that course landed in my inbox just now. It's here (not my inbox, the sign up thingy):

Yes I've signed up. Told Maureen I needed a bit of 'high culture'. She said 'what's wrong with low culture?' A sure sign she is on the mend.I saw that - it looks good, doesn't it? x
Maureen has a point there! I have also downloaded some Johnny Cash and Elvis music if that counts.....Yes I've signed up. Told Maureen I needed a bit of 'high culture'. She said 'what's wrong with low culture?' A sure sign she is on the mend.
I think I had better back off on all this in-house cognitive stimulation as she is demanding the living wage now and complaining that the kitchen is not up to working temperature. I just don't know what she is going to come out with next. You just can't get the staff these days!
Ah yes, swimming!Hi Dmac, good idea to revive this thread.
I manage an hour Studio Pilates every week, no matter how tired or stressed I am I always come out feeling loads better.
I've been thinking about perhaps swimming once a week too.
Best wishes Jox
I do online courses...the current one is genealogy which I also love doing.
I've also enrolled for a short art course. I love drawing but haven't done any for many years so I'm hoping to start that again.
I also knit and crochet......
I find if I keep busy I stress less.
