To round off the project I scraplifted Shimelle's journaling for the last page in the album: 30 days...certainly more than 30 lessons learned. A collection of daily snippets to capture where I am right now. Comfortably grown-up, but still searching for some answers. But aware, trying and learning every single day. I bought one of … Continue reading Learn Something New Everyday – Final Page
That frequently poorly pups need pet insurance! Yep, the dog has another upset tummy and is off to see the vet at 5.20pm this evening. I wonder if we could buy shares in the vet's practice??
Here's another LO of DS completed using this month's srummy Scrapagogo kit. After lunch I'm hoping to complete my last entry for my Learn Something New Everyday album - today's snippet stars the dog!Note to self - must have a looksee on Shimelle's blog to see what else I can learn.

Apparently the car wouldn't produce anymore than 2,000 rpm and the engine management warning light came on on … Continue reading What I Learnt On Day 28
The next time you have a night-in with a DVD and a take-away, watch this film. We saw it last night and were completely blown away by it. It's been a long time since a film made me cry. Initially I felt ashamed that I didn't remember much about what happened in Rwanda in 1994 … Continue reading Hotel Rwanda
That being a mummy is fantastic. It's taken me almost 21 months to learn that!
I've loved the recent photos of DS in the garden so much that I've now scrapped them twice! One LO for DS's album and one for our 2008 album. I scraplifted this LO from a LO by Karen Moss called The Frisbee Flop, featured in this month's Scrapagogo kit. Apologies for the flash reflected on … Continue reading "Curious" LO
