Listmania: What Do I Want to Learn?

March 2, 2013

This week’s Listmania link up is all about ‘Things I Want to Learn’. It can mean educationally or emotionally or anything in between.

For me there are 4 main things I would love to learn

Notebook and Veg


Being a coeliac has firmly put nutrition on my radar. As it seems I am also intolerant to fruit including juices and wine (yes I know – am devastated!) I am more keen to learn what certain foods do to my body and health. Whether this is checking out a million books from the library and just reading it all or doing a course of some sort, I am yet to figure that out but one thing is for sure and that is I will share what I learn somehow.

Graphic Design

This isn’t about being a graphic designer, I would just love to learn how to tweak my blog, add cool things to my photos and even do my own printables.

Children Behaviours and Parenting

This is an ongoing learning curve for me. I understand that some people just like to ‘wing it’ and that’s fine but I like to know what things typically happen at what stage. This just doesn’t need to when they are babies or toddlers but also as children and pre teens. I just want to be the best parent I can be.

Not Letting Things Get To Me

Wasn’t sure what the title of that should be but basically learning how to deal with things while remaining positive. I want to know how to deal with things like my youngest’s horrific birth (he is fine now), it scared me to the core. How do you get over things like that? Pushing it down surely wouldn’t help and that’s all I have been doing.

There are other things that play on my mind – like saying stupid things to people in social settings or working up the nerve to talk to anyone new socially are all things I’d like to better in myself.

Is there anything you’d like to learn?

    I’m with you on children’s behaviour and parenting – I seem to struggle with my 6 year old and it’s frustrating. I would like to get into his head!

      me too Bec, they are a mystery.

    I love your list. I am severely lactose intolerant so I hear you on the nutrition front. It has been a baptism by fire discovering that my days of eating pretty much any convenience food are over. Fortunately I do like trying new recipes so that is making the process slightly less of an ordeal. I also like to know what to expect with chid development stages. I don’t want to set unrealistic behaviour expectations for my wee dot – it will only end in tears for both of us.

      Thanks Claire, sorry to hear you have trouble with lactose, I also like checking out new recipes and seeing how I can make them ‘nellbe friendly’ 🙂

    I also need to figure out now to tweak blog, not let things get to me and try to understand toddler’s behaviour, it does my head in so much not knowing why they do what they do! I was lucky enough to have three non-horrific births but most of my friends have had at least one shocker 😦 xx

      Would love to know more about tweaking and I am glad you got to have 3 great births. Doesn’t affect my son or our relationship, he is just too gorgeous for words. Did affect the decision on not to have any more though.

    great list -graphic design is one of my interests too.

      Thanks Deb, learning more graphic design is a popular subject.

    Great list, printables are on my list to learn x

      It would be so nice to whip them up when I need them and I cannot find what I want online – I would totally share too if I could.

    Tweaking my blog is something I can relate to, want to do it but to scared to make the plunge. I found that my two girls have very different personalities, that has been a struggle, thankfully both are now great young adults. I am very lucky as I don’t have any food intolerances, so I feel for you xx

      Just back up first Rae, make sure you have everything back up and definitely go for it! And thank you for your words about food intolerances. 🙂

    Great list! Nutrition is really interesting, my daughter and I are both gluten intolerant and 3 of my babies were dairy intolerant (they have mostly grown out of it now), so it’s something I could delve into as well. I could learn a lot more about kid’s behaviour too, it’s the teenage years though that worries me most!

    Wow that is alot of intolerances to worry about, I hope they do grow out it. I hope you are well also and avoiding gluten is working for you.
