A happy first Monday of 2016 to you! I hope the new year has been treating you kindly so far and that the beginning of this week sees you ready for some new adventures.
Maybe you'd like to write about them? A quick post about the new? I've been promising a shake up of Me On Monday; and this is what I'm thinking: new. On Monday, starting today, I'd love you to tell us something you did over the weekend FOR THE FIRST TIME. Or (though it's not really an "or", because you are very welcome to do both) delight us with something you learned and DIDN'T KNOW BEFORE. A bit like this:
If I'd asked you to name one thing Sian might like for Christmas, what would you have said? A new book about knitting socks? You'd have been right. I did get a sock book; and when I opened it last night, the first thing I found out was this: if your second toe is longer than your big toe, you can tell yourself you have a "Grecian foot". This is news to me. I've lived my whole life not knowing my feet are of the Grecian variety. Believe me, it sounds a lot better than some of the other ways I have to describe them. And so I'm passing it along, just in case any of you know a differently toe-d person who might appreciate it.
How about you? What did you learn at the weekend? Or what did you do for the first time? Do tell! If we keep this up all year..well, just think: we'll all know so much more than we did before! If there's a story to go with your offering - of course, bring it all; but if it's small, just a sentence or two, that'll do every bit as nicely. It doesn't have to be mind blowing or life changing: a little personal aha! moment can make a big impact. It might give you an idea for a scrapbook page, or spark a story. And it might be just what we need to get us thinking. Every Memorandum Monday. Remember! Before you forget!
