In preparation for the Bloggy Carnival here, next week (have I mentioned it already?!!) I bought some traditional ulster bread to photograph.
I needed to take my pics today while it was still intact, as it was in great danger of being gobbled up and there would only have been some crumbs left.
If you are NOT from Northern Ireland, can you identify the three types of bread? Let me know.
It’s that time again “What I Learned This Week“.
A mixed bunch of lessons learned
2. I learned that introducing by husband to facebook may not have been the best idea – last night we had a conversation through facebook while both working on our laptops. Who said romance is dead!
3.At our church house group last Wednesday I was really encouraged when a friend spoke of something I shared on our church weekend 3 years ago about my experiences of Post Natal Depression (Post Partum Depression). She said that since I shared my story, that it helped remove some of the taboo and made it easier for others to talk more openly about their experiences. It was lovely to hear how something which apparently is only a negative experience can be used to help others who know the same dark place of depression.
4. I have learned how we have begun to take peace in our country for granted, as in the past few days the shadow of terrorism has again visited. My kids know nothing but peace, and I don’t want them to grow up thinking this is just the way things have to be. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the soldiers and policeman who now mourn. There has been widespread condemnation across all sides of the community and a determination to unite against this, and not slide back to the “old days”. Please continue to pray for peace for our country.
Be sure to visit JoLynn for more lessons learned this week.
