After reading through the post on doing something for the last time, it got me thinking about things I have done for the first time in the past year. Around this time last year, I began taking pilates and am now going 3 times per week. I learned how to use a Cricut machine and am making cards, t-shirts and decor. I am now embarking on making a cut flower garden. What else has any one done for the first time this past year?
Crocheted a baby blanket! I'm just finished another one - that's 3 so far! Plus a couple for my DGD doll. And crocheted around a CD/DVD to make a little bag. You can find tutorials on YouTube. And crocheted a string bag.
Singing. When I was 11 we had to ‘audition’ in the school music lesson. I was told I couldn’t sing. Teachers word was law in those days, so for all of my life I didn’t sing. When I moved to a village a few years ago I was persuaded to join the community choir that has a fabulous Director of Music. Guess what? I can sing!
I did something stupid for the first time as well, this week. Put a glass saucepan lid on a casserole dish as couldnt find the proper lid. Cooked casserole. All was well until the last 20 mins of cooking. Then glass broke into several pieces.
Then, adding further to my stupidity, I ate some of the casserole. Not sure I had any glass tiny pieces, but it took a day for me to feel comfortable eating again.
