On Friday a bloggy friend Kimberly Geswein (a font celebrity!) arrived for 6 days (en route to assist with bringing 2 adopted kids to US from Ukraine), and it has been lovely having her stay.
On to "Lessons Learned" - this happens
Lesson 1 It is nervous teaching your first workshop (Mobile Phone Photography Workshop at the Island Arts Centre, Lisburn) - especially when you are waiting for everyone to arrive.
Lesson 2 My son has enjoyed not being the only red-head in the house
Lesson 3 It is lovely to see our wee country through the eye of a visitor (and her iphone).
Even our boring main shopping street is apparently cute!
Lesson 4 It is VERY lovely to have a child-free night up on the north coast with your bloggy friend - we had a lovely meal on Sunday evening at the historic Bushmills Inn

Lesson 5 It is great to have the Giants Causeway and Dunluce Castle practically to yourselves (well it was about 10am on the first Monday in March!)

Gloonan Gallery), it probably would have made sense to ensure it was open! Fortunately the lovely near-by Nettys Vintage Tea Room (highly recommended for it's tasty food, warm welcome and lovely knick-knacks!) not only provided us with a great lunch, they also took care of the order for us too, holding it until it could be collected.
These are more of Kimberly's pics - someone just as
Lesson 7 I learned that no matter how many good intentions I have had to get caught up on my blog posts from our Orlando holiday, I still haven't managed it! Maybe this week...... maybe.......
So, have you learned much this week? Do share.
For more lessons learned, visit the lovely Julie (From Inmates to Playdates), and tell her I sent you!
