My first blog.
I am now in the second year of my costume course and need to get my blog started. Last year went so quickly and I learnt so much. Every day brought lots of new experiences and I found it exciting but exhausting. Unfortunately I neglected to get going with my blog. This is my fourth week back in uni and already this year feels much calmer.
It is now time to get my blog started, so here goes.

I'll start by introducing myself, my name is Diane Laidlaw, I am a mature student studying for a foundation degree in Costume Construction for Stage and Screen at Cleveland College of Art and Design (CCAD) in Hartlepool in the North East of England. This is a small specialist Art and design college with sites in both Middlesbrough (Further Education) and Hartlepool (Higher Education). At 53 following a career in nursing and care work I have decided it is time for a complete change and I am ready for the challenge of returning to education and gaining a degree.
