Learn Something New Every Day: 17th September

Sometimes I need to stop dashing about and breathe. This month has been manic and I crashed out and slept for 10 hours last night so I think this is particularly timely lesson for me.

Over the last couple of days I've had school, Guides, a meeting with my Masters supervisor, been furniture shopping (disaster), arranged for a delivery of small furniture items and worked out and test-driven the route from my soon-to-be flat to work. Oh, and laundry and started packing.

But there's been fun stuff too! I had lunch with one friend and dinner with another yesterday. The latter showed me how to use a Wii which I'd never done before so that was fun, but I didn't get home until after midnight which is late for me. I'm a solid bed-at-half-ten type. I made a page today although I couldn't fit one in yesterday. Might try and do that tonight.

While there's still lots of stuff that has yet to fall into place, I can see a pattern emerging for the move however which is reassuring as I no longer feel like I'm surrounded by chaos. I'm so grateful to those lovely folks who've volunteered to pitch in.

Anyway, I'm going to do an hour's packing and then call it a day and forget about everything. And order some take-out. Yum! New motto being that even if you can't clear some free time, at least you can make a cup of tea and get someone to deliver delicious things to your door!

Hope everyone had lovely weekends!

P.S. I had another sheet of the Basic Grey Basics after all! But that truly is my last.

P.P.S. I'm going on a scrappy retreat in half term with Scrapagogo (I'm not a subscriber by I snagged a place due to a last minute cancellation) and I just got a glimpse of the class list which has made me super excited and given me something to look forward to!

P.P.P.S. I really don't understand the UKScrappers website.


  1. Yay!! Very excited for you re Scrapagogo retreat :-) I'd love to do something like that some time - my date with Tim Holtz is the closest to it so far (and I'm going to be living and breathing that one for nearly 6 months till it actually happens!!)

    Glad you had a good long sleep, it does sound like you needed it. Gorgeous layout as ever xx

  2. Glad you have a place at that retreat I am sure you will have a whale of a time. someone there will be able to help you understand UKS too I expect. It is simple once you get to know your way around and you can always ask for help.

    Love your page as always shame that lovely pack of pps have come to an end

  3. Very envious of the retreat....would love to do something like that.Great page....and great lesson!!!!

  4. It's surprising what a good sleep will do for you. You must have needed it :D
    Lucky you getting that place on the retreat.
    As for UKS, I didn't understand it at first either. There are people who 'adopt' newbies to help them round. I find that I only go to certain places on there now.
