Once again this past week we’ve been busy scanning across the internet to find the latest information and Open University courses. This week we tackle retirement, photographic memories and bookkeeping/accounting. So if there’s a free course or bit of news on the agenda then hopefully we will pick it up and stick it on the next Open University news.

“Continuing with the part-time Open University route was the obvious choice. At my age, I have too many family and other commitments to immerse myself in three years’ uninterrupted study, tempting as that might be. And it has not always been easy: juggling academic work and babysitting duties requires a certain amount of forward planning.”

Retirement doesn’t have to be spent on the beach!
