What I learned this week

I’ll get straight down to my lessons learned

  • ….we have had probably our coldest but driest beginning of April ever – sun shone every day (which doesn’t usually happen!), no April showers. LOTS of blue skies!

and stunning sunsets.

  •  ….wee spring lambs are very cute
  • ….when a new French restaurant (The French Rooms) opens in the village, prepare to be impressed. I will do a separate blog post about it, but the food was delicious. he building beautifully renovated, the staff friendly, and the little extra touches all added up to a wonderful evening.
  •   …..Navy! I seem to be addicted to buying/wearing navy – there is a whole lot of navy going on in my wardrobe right now! I recently purchased a navy blazer which I am very pleased with. I am however on the look out for some linen trousers – maybe not navy though!
  •  ….sometimes you are invited to an event, and you aren’t sure whether to go, but when it is BizCamp Belfast I am so glad I did. I was only able to stay for part of the day but I learned lots including – cloud accounting, pitching your story to the media, how I should be using MailChimp, and more! I also met some great people, and definitely made a few useful contacts for my jewellery business and blogging.
  • ….travelling over to Donegal by ferry (even if it is only a 15 minute trip) is worth experiencing, especially on a such a sunny day
  • …..when you are going over to meet blogging friends Elizabeth and B, it is even better. We met them for lunch, then walked around the city walls of Derry/Londonderry/Stroke City. Check out Elizabeth’s blog – she is a talented photographer, and they have just relocated from Florida to chilly Donegal, so it makes for a fascinating read too.
  •  …..trying to explain to your kids you are driving west and taking a ferry to getSouthern Ireland, to then drive a bit south back into Northern Ireland, then west again back into Southern  Ireland, to get to a restuarant to meet Elizabeth and B is confusing! At  various times during the day we were asked “so are we in Northern Ireland or Southern Ireland now?”

Think that is enough learning for this week.
