LSNED 2013 - Day 27


Day 27 of LSNED and today's lessons are:

1)     It’s hard knowing what to say when someone is hurting and sad.
3)     When I’m debating between two foods for dinner, I need to make a decision and not buy both to decide later as it's a waste of money.
4)     It’s nice having things to look forward to.
5)    I should never underestimate the talent of some people.

LSNED 2013 - Day 25


Day 25 of LSNED and here are today's lessons:

1)     I can now change more details on client’s cases.
2)    Curry sauce can be really hot, so use in moderation until I know.
3)     I need to be more organised on a craft night and I need to do more than I have the last two meetings.  
4)     Frys Cream’s are nice, but not that nice any more. Am I finally going off chocolate? That's a scary thought!

LSNED 2013 - Day 24


Day 24 of LSNED and today we were encouraged to look at what we forget. Here are my thoughts on that:

I'm one of the most forgetful people I know, but I wasn't always like that. I used to be able to remember all sorts except people’s names. When I was working in a taxi office, I’d know our regular customers by the time of day they rang or by their voice. I often knew what they wanted before they told me. I knew drivers by their voices when they called over the radio. I knew all of this, but putting names to those people was hard.
If I saw people in the flesh, I’d know who they were as soon as they spoke. I’d be able to tell a customer what their last journey was and I’d be able to tell a driver what shift they were on next. Ask me to put a name to that face and I’d look at you with a blank expression. I’d be searching that part of my brain that names went into and struggled to get out of again.
I still have that same problem today. Customers ring and I know their voices. I can’t put a name to the voice and often struggle to put a case reference to it also, but I know who I’m speaking to and sometimes even have an idea of what they’re calling about. I will that part of my brain to let the right piece of information jump out and make an appearance, just this once. It doesn’t happen often though.
That brings me to today’s lesson – I will always struggle to remember names.

LSNED 2013 - Day 23


Day 23 of LSNED and today's lessons is:

"I'm taking a break. I'll be back soon." is something I said a couple of weeks ago. For some reason, that 'soon' is longer than I expected it would be. Sorry teamies if you're reading this. I will be back soon, I promise.

LSNED 2013 - Day 22


Day 22 of LSNED and it's New Skill Sunday. I decided to try to get to grips with the spot tool in CA2P to protect a certain coloured area when making a photo B&W. I've tried it out on my photo on my LO below.

Here's a couple of learnings from today:

1)      You can’t stop Christmas coming even if you try.
2)     I can use the spot tool in CA2P to protect colours when changing to B&W (see the red hat?).
