    I have just spent a nice hour with one of the many free courses on the open uni Apparently there are over 1000 to chose from. I have chosen level one forensic psychology. Omg I was so bad with the tests
    Very interesting though

    Thought it may be of interest to others

    For anyone that got the 5 off fruit with weetabix coupons, remember to check the date. Each one is only valid for a few days. Managed to get bananas today.
