Learn Something New

Over at they are having a month of learning. I only found out about this class yesterday. It began on the first day of September. I signed up today so I am a few days late. From what I can gather so far, each day there is a focus for learning and then each night or the next day you blog or scrapbook your learning. I am choosing to blog, because I know I wont be able to scrapbook a page every life is too busy at the moment. But I can handle is fun and quick and easy. You are also meant to take photos as well and add that to your page for the day.

My learning today is: Jokes are a good conversational tool and help lighten the mood and break the ice when meeting someone new. Not to self: learn and memorise a few jokes to "pull out" when needed.

This is how my learning came about....I was dropping into my grandparents house for a quick visit today. I was there ten minutes and there was a knock at the door. I answered the door and the Parish Priest was there and the Bishop! They were coming in for a visit! I had no idea...My grandparents sat down at the table with them and I made them all cups of tea with my grandparents best china and served fruit cake and biscuits (whatever I could find basically!) They talked and chatted and then started telling jokes. My grandad loves jokes. The Bishop turned to me and asked if I knew of a good joke and...I had to say no...I couldnt think of one. You see I dont have the best memory, and although I have heard many jokes I can never seem to remember any...the only one I really know is "What do you call a man with paper underpants?....Russell" and I really wasnt keen on pulling that one out in fron of the Parish Priest and Bishop....So I think it would be good for me to have a few jokes up my sleeve...dont you agree!

Well, I am up super late tonight and must get to bed. I sorted out my 1950's outfit for the party tomorrow night...and bought the present...which is divine! I shopped the whole of Peel St (main street in Tamworth) for it. Tomorrow is a busy I better get some rest. Thanks for popping on over to my blog. Hope you have a great weekend!
