>Lent – contains crass money talk

>My Gran always used to give up chocolate for Lent.  And I’ve done that a few years although I’ve not succeeded in that goal for a long time.  For her it was, I think, a religious thing.  For me giving up things for lent is more about proving that I can and doing it for […]

> Take a crafty course at the Arts Centre … has been completed!My contemporary knitting class finished this morning.  I’ve had great fun with it and have learned a lot about thinking outside the box when it comes to knitting. And also some new skills.  I was particularly glad to do “deliberate holes” today because whilst […]

> Start a memory/keepsake box …has been completed!I’ve had my eye out for just the right box for a while.  Thought I’d seen it but it was pretty pricy (being Laura Ashley it was nice but it would have meant paying for the name) so I was wondering and looking still.  And on Saturday I […]

>25 things you (maybe) don’t know about me

>I’ve been avoiding doing this on facebook but I’m tempted now.  I’ve been a blogger for so long however I don’t know how many of these actually are new. I don’t like February I’ve given up on Thing a Day for this year as I have little motivation for it (or much to be honest) […]

>Two "things"

> I never got here to update on thing a day yesterday.  I had planned to use whatever exercise we did during my creative writing class as my thing but it was cancelled.  So I did some journalling by hand instead.  I may scan that on and post it to my blog but I haven’t […]
