Learn Something New Every Day | Days 6-10

September means that the Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness is approaching. It also means that Shimelle is running her annual class, Learn Something New Every Day.
As with the previous few years, I’m recording what I’ve learned throughout September here.



Day 6: I’ve put the heavier weight duvets back on the beds too soon.

Day 7: The chance to spend a few hours with a close friend while walking around the park with Tilly is priceless.

Day 8: It doesn’t take The Boy long to turn a difference of opinion into a full-blown slanging match. 😦

Day 9: An unexpected but timely email from a friend can make a huge difference to your day.

Day 10: Chatting with another autism-mum makes us feel less alone.

  1. I have a feeling you’re going to be grateful for those heavier duvets pretty soon – this morning feels very autumnal and I think it may be time to put the summer clothes away.
    I am pleased that day 9 lifted your spirits a little and that day 10 offered the support you needed. When you’ve had a day 8 slanging match it makes you wonder ‘how on earth did that escalate so quickly?’! I would like to prescribe you many more day 7s 🙂

  2. I had no idea the Learn Something New Every Day was still going … I remember participating some years ago and enjoying it. I am full of empathy for your no.8 – it can be really hard to look back and see how we got to where we did! I’m guessing this is part of teenagehood … Hoping you can organise more Day 7s to de-compress :).
