Review of Week 4 (and a bit!)

I figured it made sense to wait an extra couple of days before reviewing Week 4, so I could include the last couple of days of September. And yes, I know today isn't over yet, but as the focus of today's page is a reflective look back over the project, I'm not planning to worry about any new lessons learnt today.

So, here are a few of the other things I learnt since 21st September.
  • I can remember quite a lot of German :-)
  • How to say 'I sing in a choir' in German ('Ich singe in einem Chor')
  • A few Spanish words! (While doing supply I got to sit in on the lesson given by a visiting Spanish teacher.)
  • Things can often look better after a night's sleep.
  • I can print OK on canvas (and should be able to sew on it OK too).
  • A dik-dik is a small African antelope!
  • Free chocolate bar with my subscription magazine today! Woo-hoo!
  • It's got nuts in it. Yah-boo.
  • Sometimes the parents can be more frustrating than the pupils.
  • One electric toothbrush can be recycled to make ten yogurt pots.
  • Toasted muffins are yummy :-)
  • It's good to be home.
  • Friends can be so helpful - good friends don't even need to be asked. (Thanks, Fiona.)
  • I wish I'd done more stuff off the edges of my pages in this project - but instead of regretting it, I'll take it as a learning opportunity for next time.
  • I can't type the word September!! It goes wrong every time!!
My plan is to make up a list of some of these extra lessons from the month (my review posts will come in very handy for this!) and pop it into an envelope which forms the base for my last page. Photos will follow to make that clearer :-)
