LSNED 2012 - Day 7


My learnings and LO from Day 7:
  1. Four hours sleep is really not enough.
  2. I need to keep on top of the cleaning rather than do it all in one go and at 2:45am.
  3. You never know who you might meet or where.
  4. It's nice talking about Dad to those who knew him from many years ago.
  5. My eldest nephew is getting so grown up and maturing into a lovely young man who can have amazing conversations with you.
  6. When you think things are going great, something can come along and stop it all suddenly.
  7. Computers and hard drives are only great when they're working and expensive to sort out if they stop working.
  8. You can fool people with soya ice-cream when it's as nice as Swedish Glace and that's with the tub being on the table in full view.
  9. My Mum may say the wrong thing without realising and embarrass herself, but she gets a great response and people listen to her.
  10. I feel like a jinx.

LSNED 2012 - Day 6


My learnings and LO from Day 6:
  1. I really do not like a full bus when going to work now that the college children are back on it.
  2. I should take drink with me to work as the cost of buying out adds up through the month to some stupid amount of money.
  3. Shopping for a special birthday meal is not as cheap as it looks on the shopping list.
  4. I can just about stick to a shopping list.
  5. I do not enjoy cooking meat, but will do it on special occasions.
  6. I need to drink more.
  7. Sometimes, having a short time to do something can stop you procrastinating.

Love, Sarah xx

LSNED 2012 - Day 5


My learnings and LO from Day 5:
  1. The smell of food is often nicer than actually eating it, so I'll just keep smelling the pizzas and will not buy one.
  2. You can get pink sewing machines. Everything seems to come in pink nowadays.
  3. There are lovely people working in shops who tell you that the goods you're about to buy go on sale in 2 days, so they'll put your name on them for you to get them cheaper.
  4. I love the look of a squeaky clean oven, hob and extractor fan and need to keep them clean now.
  5. I need to address post before taking it to the post office or I'll end up bringing it home with me.
  6. Adding a swirly effect to a photo really can enhance what you're trying to portray (see LO from Day 4).


Love, Sarah xx

LSNED 2012 - Day 4


My learnings and LO from Day 4:
  1. A migraine all day really can stay with you for the biggest part of the day and night.
  2. Shrieking children is not what you need with the above mentioned affliction.
  3. I do not fancy Marmite any more when coming out of a migraine.
  4. Afternoon TV is rubbish, but it's good to have some noise towards the end of my migraine.
  5. I need to be careful about what I eat and remember I have lactose intolerance.
  6. Doing something nice for someone makes you feel warm inside even if it's as simple as offering to cook them a meal.
  7. A day's learning largely governed by a migraine is not good.

Love, Sarah xx

LSNED 2012 - Day 3


My learnings and LO from Day 3:
  1. I need to make sure I set the alarm properly. It's no good waking up an hour late.
  2. I'm still spending too much money on food. I need to take lunches in with me.
  3. You can't always believe what you're told.
  4. A conversation with a friend can really lift your spirits.
  5. Counting to 10 does sometimes work, but a bar of chocolate works better.
  6. Be careful what you put on Facebook because people will see it.

Love, Sarah xx

LSNED 2012 - Day 2


My learnings and LO from Day 2:
  1. I get cramp partly due to the cold nights now. I must get a thicker duvet and use a fleece blanket until I have got one.
  2. I need to allow myself more time to get ready in the mornings.
  3. Washing won't do itself.
  4. Falling asleep mid evening means that I get nothing done, don't eat dinner and am wide awake when I should be going to bed.
  5. I have wonderful friends (ok, I knew this anyway, but it was re-enforced tonight).

Love, Sarah xx

LSNED 2012 - Day 1


My learnings and LO from Day 1:
  1. Coffee and cake with my sister is even nicer when it's free thanks to the bank note I found in the pocket of a jacket I hadn't worn since Summer began.
  2. My sister and I really can talk about anything and everything no matter how heavy, embarrassing or funny it may be.
  3. I can resist the lure of a sale. Managed to avoid going into the art, craft and stationery shop that had a 25% off everything sale. As I hadn't intended going in there, I would still have spent 75% more than planned.
  4. I must put some money into getting all my digi mini-albums and LOs printed and not leave them as files on my hard drive.

Love, Sarah xx
