#reverb12 Day 5 and 6

Before I start I just want to say that my project presentation went well and I didn't get asked anything I couldn't answer which is good.  My interview was competence-based which was weird as I am not used to telling long stories.  I think I managed to sell myself well but I won't find out for a while whether I was successful or not.

OK on with #reverb12.  I am enjoying having to think about different things than I would normally blog about.

#reverb12 Day 5: What was your dream destination?

That is an easy one for me - it has to be Venice, where The Boy and I spent New Year.  I had been wanting to visit Venice for years so when he arranged it as a birthday present for me I was thrilled.  Venice is so beautiful - everything I hoped it would be!

#reverb12 Day 6: What did you learn?

Hmm, this is a bit more difficult - how do you describe everything you have learnt in a year.
Off the top of my head, I've learnt :

  • to use a sewing machine.
  • to bake bread (not with yeast yet though).
  • that my friends never get bored of eating my pies.
  • that knitting isn't as hard as I thought it was.
  • how important friends and family are when you lose a relative.
  • that job applications are boring and take forever to fill in but will hopefully be worth it.
  • that making blankets takes a lot of time and effort.
Not as hard as I thought it would be.  I'm sure there was lots more I have learnt but I can't remember anything else now.


  1. Wonderful - so proud of you. So good that you can appreciate all you have learned over the past year.

  2. Great post...we are all always learning something hey? xxx

    1. Thank you :D I was worried I wouldn't be able to think of anything to write but once I started there was no stopping me :) xxx
