Toe nail painting and how to use the microwave

In making the presents for Chris and Jo, I have been sidetracked from creating my layouts for Learn Something New Every Day. However, I have been keeping notes of lessons learnt so that when I come to create them I'll have a reminder

For day three and four of LSNED

Yesterday I learnt

Why paint my own toenails, when I have a wonderful husband who will paint them for me!!

That our new neighbours have moved in - haven't met them yet though

Ameretto biscuits and nougat are a good combination

I now have a back up plan if the buyer of AJ's flat decides NOT to purchase the furniture

My friend Mandy has a new job and is excited to go clothes shopping even though they are for work clothes - Mandy and Ceal are currently in Adelaide, Australia

That Grace (Jo's little girl) stumbled whilst having a paddy and has bruised her nose and face. Luckily she didn't break her nose. Saw her today as doesn't look as bad as I imagined though!!

Today I learnt

That I am very content just pottering around all afternoon making presents for my friends

I am more creative than I give myself credit for

How to use the new microwave on my own - this one is digital, my old red one you turned a dial

My friends Jo and Chris liked the anniversary card I made them - they have been married 11 years today

That I had forgotten how nice sweet potatoes tasted


Good evening from Pickle Land. Hope to speak to you soon

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…

Happy wedding anniversary

Seven years today I wore this beautiful dress to marry my best friend.  Seven years today I vowed to love and cherish my best friend forever..  We have had many ups and downs over the past seven years but I wouldn't change a thing. 

AJ I love you.  You are my world xx
