Some More Things I Have Learned Recently

It's time for another one of those blog posts. The ones where I take stock of my life experience so far and tell you what I've learned. You can read my first one, which was written shortly after arriving in Melbourne, here. And my second, a few months after leaving Melbourne and coming home, here.

Here are some more things I have learned recently.

Doncaster's First Pay As You Feel Café

A Pay As You Feel café is one where you make a donation for the food rather than paying for it, the reason being that the food is saved from being wasted, chucked or becoming landfill. In Donny the folk behind The Real Junk Food Project have got the ball rolling!

I went along to the opening to catch up with the editors of Doncopolitan and to try some of the food. All photos in this post are by Warren Draper.

Why I'm Thankful For My Mum

A recent email from Joe Blogs Network revealed an excellent and very exciting blogger competition. Write a post about why you're thankful for your mum, and get the chance to win a short trip to Bruges with Great Rail. Today is actually my mum's birthday, so it's even more appropriate!

Weekend Bits #3

I've come to the realisation that I work in six month periods. When I make a change in my life, it takes around six months for me to get used to that change.

It was six months before I began to feel settled in Melbourne, and another six after leaving until I finally stopped missing it there so much. I'm now starting to feel really at home in Sheffield - I've been here just over six months.
