LSNED 5 and 6

It's my 31st wedding anniversary today!  Where did all those years go?  Today has been cold, wet and miserable here, but back in 1980 it was a gloriously hot summer day.
Anyhow, for the 5th prompt for LSNED I searched through some old photos and found a little photo of me with my mum taken in about 1961.  I am proudly showing off my box of smarties.  It would appear that my love of chocolate goes back to a very young age!
Today's prompt referred to first day of term at school, which is very appropriate for me as I work as a school secretary!  When we broke up for the summer holidays back in July I scribbled a load of notes in my diary of things that needed to be done as soon as we returned for the Autumn term.  Now I'm sure that they made sense at the time, but some of them seem very obscure today and I can't remember what on earth I meant by them.  I've learnt that I need to take more time and trouble when making 'reminders' that won't be read again for several weeks!
The colours are a bit odd in this photo as by the time I had finished the layout, it was dark and the camera has cast an orangey glow over the picture.

Happy anniversary! I love both of your pages. I'm the same, I makes notes and then when I read them much later it's as if they're in a foreign language :)

Happy 31st, Deb! My old lists are legible, it just depresses me when I see an old list and I still haven't accomplished what was on it :/

Your pages are great and I can identify with writing notes to myself. Never can figure out what I mean.

Happy anniversary!
I really like your red page Deb, and I have to say, at least you wrote the notes down ... not like us completely forgetting a dinner out last weekend!

Happy Anniversary Deb! i think your LSNED pages look great!! I laughed at your lesson about writing your lists more clearly, I have that problem too, only thing is it's usually only a week or two later when I revisit those lists!

Happy Anniversary (even if I am a little late..)

At least it shows you have had a good break - if you had understood every word it would be like you had never been away!

Belated Happy Anniversary and I know that feeling - reading something and not having a clue what you meant at the time.
