Lessons Learned this week

Another week has passed – and it has been a busy one.

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 every most Tuesdays on my blog.

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.

There were 12 students, and together they learned about capturing, editing and sharing images from their mobile phones.

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!)

(my iphone pic this time)

Lesson 6 When you drive via Ahoghill on the way home to deliver a customer order to a shop (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 obsessed interested as me in iphone photography!

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!

    Haha, and I, dear friend, have not even hardly travelled from home but have not found time to blog neither, and its unacceptable! Sigh.

    Your post is FABULOUS, love all the photos. One day I will be THERE taking pics too. I know that I know that I KNOW.

    I bet the causeway will still be there when I do *giggle*!

    Thanks for the lovely post,

    I LOVE these pics of your cute little town :)

    And it seriously tickled me pink that THE Kimberley Gewein is your friend :) :)

    I tried to explain to someone but am afraid I may just have scared them off because of my font nerdiness :) :)
