Learn Something New Every Day - 12th Sept

12th September

Today I found out that yesterday Dad had brought home a new rescue bunny from the Pets@Home adoption centre. He fell in love with him and simply had to take him and we certainly have the space at the mo, as there's only one bunny in the shed and 3 empty hutches.
He's called Spot and no one wanted him as he was suffering from mange and so didn't look very good. However now he's just gorgeous and as you can see from the pic Dad's besotted :D

Learn Something New Every Day - 8th to 11th Sept

8th September

Had a terrible time in Tescos listening to loud screaming from all the little kids in the place, Just one of those days when shopping is even more hideous than normal.

9th September

My poor DeeDee lost her battle against the tumour as the vet said that it had spread to her lungs and there was no hope for her.

10th September

Just moved and my back went into spasms trapping my sciatic nerve. The moral is that these things happen without warning so nothing you can do about it.

11th September

Met up with Jane and Richard to show her some sights while she's down and it made me realise how little I go and see of my own county. We had a great time and it was so brill to see her again.

Learn Something New Every Day - 5th to 7th Sept

5th September

This was the points when I realised that I really love these books but if I carry on reading them at this rate (one every couple of days) I soon won't have any left until another one comes out. Boo hoo!!

6th September

Chris treated me to a McFlurry and they just have the new Aero ones in so I thought I'd try the mint one. Our local branch not being staffed by rocket scientists then had a protracted conversation about whether 'someone' went to Penzance to collect the mint sauce and eventually told us there was none. I opted for the choc one instead, and when we pulled out and I tasted it..it was mint. Go figure :D

7th September

I've been feeling more down since coming back from holiday and finding leaking roof, intermittent electrical fault and a bathroom which should be gutted at the end of the week. It's so nice to know that I have friends who will be there to help when I need a moan, a hug or simply someone there for me.

Learn Something New Every Day - 4th Sept

Today I learned rather painfully that hanging a gate while wearing sandals isn't a good idea. Neither is not watching where the gate is in relation to your exposed toes as it drops back onto the hangers and creates a toe sandwich.
At least nothing was broken so no harm really. I shall be more careful next time that's for sure!!

Learn Something New Every Day - 3rd Sept

3rd September

From climbing up on the roof to reseal the conservatory, as it was leaking again in the downpour we had, I discovered just how much clean-up of hands can be avoided with simply using a pair of disposable latex gloves. Didn't even need to wash my hands afterwards. So much better than I have done before :D

Learn Something New Every Day - 1st & 2nd September

I decided this year to join the new Shimelle class, thanks to Tee for letting me know it was running. Throghout the month you have to keep a journal or make a book detailing what you have learned each day.

Cover design;

This is my first page for 1st September.
Today I learned that people don't have to live nearby to be close friends, like Alison on UKS.

On the 2nd I learnt that electricity has a mind of it's own and trying to diagnose problems with the circuits is possibly best left to those with either the right equipment or certainly more patience than me!!!

IKEA mini frame with easel

It's been sitting on the shelf empty for ages and so I decided that I'd have to DO something with it. And this is the result.
