19th September: I can live without Facebook :)
20th September: It is really nice to come home to a clean and tidy house.
I get rather caught up in life and the housework gets put to the bottom of the to do list. The only time that it is a real priority is if I'm going away. I love coming home to a clean and tidy house, just for 10 minutes it's bliss before the cases get opened and the contents flung around the room ;)
21st September: Life is short. Eat dessert first.
I was sent a box of goodies by someone who is just lovely. In it was a card with the words 'Life is short. Eat dessert first'. Isn't that lovely? I like to think that that's what I do with my life, but perhaps I should learn to do it more so.

If you know me, then you'll know how much I love a cybercrop. So you will be able to imagine my excitement this evening now that Bunny has asked for classes ideas over on UKS. Already the chatter and request for clues has started! I love the build up almost as much as the actual weekend, and it's def less tiring. How very exciting!

I know that one of the stereotypes of the English is that we're standoffish and don't engage strangers in conversation but I never really thought that that was true of me. I'll quite happily chat to anyone about anything (hence my entry for the 13th). However, the Germans take it to another extreme and I can't quite see it taking off over here. If they get stuck in a traffic jam, they all get out and wander about chatting. How nice!!

Connor visited his Dad in Germany earlier in the summer and every night he told me about the bubblegum ice cream he's had and how delicious it is. I tried some. It's not!
I only went to the cinema, but I didn't get home until 11pm and when my alarm went off at 6am my whole body shouted 'Noooooo!'.

I'm off to Germany again next week and want to take some kits with me to work with, but that depends on me tidying my desk and put things where they are supposed to be first I think so who knows if that will happen. I did pick up my new printer today so at least I can print some more photos out, including the Learn Something New Everyday photos that need to be a specific size.

"My nearest book was one I picked up at the library sale - 'If I Were You' by Julia Llewellyn and my sentence was "Sophie knew not even to bother batting her eyelids and pleading". It made me think that in our family my daughter has everyone wrapped around her little finger, so "Anything for You" shows her with Grandad and cousin playing her game on the beach."
Your kit award is winging it's way to you. I hope that you enjoy it and will show me what you did with it.
I love the photo is of her little great nephew Reece and look at all those Prima pretties he's asleep on. Beautiful LO don't you think? And then there's the Solfest LO with her and hubby peaking out of the page. Love it. Check out the rest of Julie's work on her blog sometime soon!

I didn't get my Learn Something New Everyday first 5 days LO done last night because my printer has broken, but here is what I learnt;
1st September: My tastes have changed and I like mushrooms now
2nd September: Woodford Park has two playgrounds in it
3rd September: If Connor wakes up and both his Dad and I are in the same building, it is me he comes to cuddle first
4th September: Bubblegum ice cream does not taste 'delicious'
5th Septemeber Business class is adjustable!
Huh! I really do learn things every day. Hey ho, hey ho, it's off to work I go!

I have my 'Learn something new everyday' notebook with me and will be preparing my summary of the week on my return to England tomorrow (assuming that I get all my lesson plans done today ready for Monday morning of course!).
Have you had a go at my challenge yet? I'm pretty sure that it's still fairly Autumnal across the UK today so why not settle in with the paper and scissors and get sticking. And of course there are lots of yummy new kits out being the beginning of the month so a quick browe on the internet wouldn't do any harm, surely?!
Perhaps I should mention at this point that I was sent the Prima Marketing Inc catalogue this week. OMG!!! Here are some of my personal highlights...
Dangerously pretty stuff!!
