LSNED - Day 19
LSNED - Day 26
I love the abundance of big, juicy tomatoes so I can make lots of delicious soup.

Sometimes I feel as though I can't do things at the weekend until the vacuuming or ironing or whatever is done, but it really can wait until monday.
I am dreadfully untidy and tend to put things in a pile to do "later" instead of dealing with them immediately. My friend gave me a recipe for plum and hazelnut cake and I'd been out and got all the ingredients and went to make the cake and couldn't find the recipe anywhere. I searched for ages and in the end had to resort to the internet. This is a lesson I really do need to learn!!
The cake incidently is lush.

The lesson learned on day 8 was basically that I should be more aware of the time. I very nearly got a parking ticket while stopping to buy a cup of coffee and a scone!
We went to visit our next door neighbour in hospital and just a simple thing like that has huge importance to others.
Something I need to relearn - drink lots of water or get a bad head.

Today I had a bit of a catastrophe in that I was putting some cheese on the top of my cottage pie and when I went to put it in the oven, I tipped it up and half of it spilled all over the oven floor. I scooped up what I could and put it back in the dish. To cut a long story short, I normally feed the dogs as soon as we have eaten but with the mess in the oven I completely forgot. Millie came up to me about eight thirty, crying. I got up and she took me to their food cupboard and of course I remembered. Clever Millie.

It's that time of year again and I am hoping I will complete this september's LSNED. I think I missed out on a couple of pages last year.
This is the front cover. The size is 7" x 5" - a new size for me, but I didn't want to go too big and I am going to try and keep everything simple and not worry too much about the decoration so that I can keep up. After all, it is about the lessons I learn:)
The journalling says " Today was a bit of a reality check. I went to Emma's to do her ironing and managed to speak to her - she was on her way to London to see a lady who specialises in treating hair when you're having chemo. It made me think that I am taking my own health for granted. I do have high blood pressure and high cholesteroal but I CAN do something about these so I am going to try and eat more healthily so that maybe I can come off my tablets at some point. Emma can't do anything about her cancer.
I've struggled with this card for days, whatever I did, it just wasn't right. I had to base it on Westlife and Winnie the Pooh and the person in question was going to be 30. Last night I asked Chris to come up with some ideas and he just said, why don't you do a stage? The rest was easy after that:)
