Learn Something New Every Day - Steps Day 3

"Even the longest journey must begin where you stand."

Note to self: Time to change the crocs to something more weatherproof!

What i learned:
  • When you are preoccupied thinking about challenges, you will walk out of the house with unsuitable footwear.
  • The twelve steps program for codependency is much harder to implement than it looks; I am still struggling along with step 1.
  • I like finding quotes to fit in with learning something new.
  • That even the smallest step in the right direction is better than a huge step in the wrong direction.
  • That I should use my SatNav more often... when meeting up with Kim the other day in Birmingham I happily went past my turn off and carried on, turning a 12 mile trip into a 47.3 mile trip.
  • That not ALL men know the roads better than women. The two men I asked for directions on how to get back to the NORTH bound m6 were adamant that I already WAS on the north bound motorway, when I knew that London is definitely SOUTH from us.
  • I still cannot tell my left from my right and it even exasperates my SatNav. (I am waiting for the day he says "No the OTHER right!"
  • That distance is not always the same for me and everyone else! The next man i asked about how far it was to the next exit from said motorway reckoned... "oooh in about 6 miles or so." when my TomTom shortly after cheerily told me to take the next exit in 800 yards.
  • That even the longest journeys come to an end, even if sometimes the destination is not quite where you wanted to be. 


  1. lol men just never admit that they don't know the best route. It can take you on an extremely long outer circular detour and unless you have an EMma in the back who can tell- you tend to get away with it!

  2. The picture is simply stunning! BRAVO!
    Have you met Kim?!
