Learn Something New Every Day with Shimelle

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:)
