I am learning...

Here's my first page for Shimelle's class Learn Something New Every Day (click photo to see it larger):




Today I've already learnt a few lessons:

1. If you go to bed with wet hair, you will wake up with hair resmbling a birds nest (This pic was taken after I'd already dragged a brush through it, but it was still much bushier than usual!):



2. The village of Moreton has a very pretty church:



3. But you can't expect a 2 year old to be quiet in or around it:



4. There is also a lovely ford which you can paddle in:





5. But you can't expect a 2 year old not to sit in it, just because her silly mother didn't think to bring any spare clothes:




6. Finally, I learnt that snakes (at least some of them) can swim. I don't know what kind of snake this is though - can anyone tell me? It was quite small, probably a bit longer than my foot (though I didn't put my foot directly next to it!):



I'm off out for the evening, so who knows what other lessons will be learnt? xx

I'm not sure but I think that it may be a grass snake. We had one swim across our pond in the garden 2 years ago. Did you hear me scream? You must have! Despite being assured that they are harmless, I wasn't happy until it was gone!

Hehe, love your lessons for today! And I can so relate to your page for the 1st! Several million driving lessons ... and still no licence. I have given up!
No idea what the snake is *shudder* xx

Hi Jennifer
Love your Day 1 page. Hope you get the hang soon! Great photos from today too... please tell me these 'snakes' were NOT in the same water as your DD's but having just been back I notice the same pebbles under the water aaarrh!! (I run away from worms!!)
Thank you for your kind blog comments.xx Good luck with the class. Hope September is a great month for you.xx

Love that first page for your art journal. Also love the actual book. I may have to go and get my own, although it will probably sit on my desk wile I stare at it trying to think of something special to use it for.

Grass snake picture came out well, so chuffed we spotted it.
