A post with a photo!

I have been thinking today. Thinking about how much I have learnt in the past couple of years. This line of thinking came to me because of a discussion on ABC radio. Some study had shown that the first three years of a child's life are vital to their learning and someone had posed the question, "Should we be starting children's formal education earlier?" I thought all the discussion would be agreeing with the question, but it wasn't. In fact a couple of people pointed out that learning is not confined to institutions or certain periods of life and that it should be a lifelong thing. And then I began to wonder just what I have learnt of late.

How to use a computer and how to blog topped my list. Blogging, and the contacts I have made because of blogging, is one of my funnest things! My eldest child taught me everything I know on that score! And whilst she has been visiting with us she has taught me something else new. I can now sell things on eBay! For those of you who are very computer literate this may not sound too impressive, but I am impressed! I sold something this week and posted it off today. (Hopefully it will arrive at it's destination!!!) Nothing can stop me now. Decluttering, here I come!

Uncomfortable. Grandson napping when he really didn't want to. Curse that DVD and that comfy quilt!

They always look so angelic when they are asleep. Little P slept over last night and was fairly feral in the lead up to bedtime. I was so glad when the sandman arrived!

I've spent a lot of the last year learning things about myself. It's been an interesting journey. I don't think we ever really stop learning.

Go you Ebay queen!

Will you be selling any of your fabric stash, in the interests of decluttering of course :)
