April in a sentence a day

I first came across this post on Natalie the Explorer’s blog and thought it was great. She, and some other bloggers, share their month in a sentence a day. I thought it would be fun to join in, though I haven’t for a few months. I have missed looking back on what I’d been up to though, and feeling grateful for all the good in my life, so I thought I would get back on the horse this month.  Here’s what I’ve been up to… Continue reading

November in a sentence a day

I came across this post on Natalie the Explorer’s blog and thought it was great. She, and some other bloggers, share their month in a sentence a day. I thought it would be fun to join in, a way to record just what I’d been up to.  So, here’s what I did…

1st: Went to my daughter’s parent / teacher evening and heard that, after a tough start, she has settled in to year 3 really well (phew!)

2nd: Got to sit and drink tea with my mom for the afternoon, catching up on nothing much but still having fun. Continue reading
