I do feel that the blog has been so neglected lately.  I also know I have said this before and I keep saying to myself ‘I must try harder’.

The garden and the poly tunnel have also suffered neglect.

Summer 2016 has been a busy one for us, thankfully.  We had a busy few months with guests staying.

It was made even more busy, as I was also working part-time.

There just were not enough hours in the day.

I’m sure you’ve all had that feeling…. you manage to keep going through busy times, but it is only when you stop you realise ‘boy I’m exhausted’!!  Well that’s the way I’ve felt since I finished up with the part-time job last week.

I’ve had a couple of very quiet and slow days where very little got done.  Hopefully this week, I’ll feel inclined to up the pace a bit, but hey if the sun shines as it is at the moment ….. well, I might stay ‘slow’.

Apologies again for the lack of posts.  I have lots planned in my head!  I will share them over the coming weeks.

What have you been up to over the summer?

This is Lackeen Castle which can be seen in the distance from our kitchen….. but only as the sun rises and sets and reflects on the walls.

It may still be small….but we are anxiously awaiting our melon harvest.

I hate to admit defeat, but I really don’t get Snapchat.

I understand how it works.

I just don’t understand how it can work for business.

What’s the point of spending time recording something that will ‘disappear’ in 24 hours?  It just doesn’t make sense.

Is it not more useful to use Vine, Instagram, Periscope, YouTube?

I know you can store your ‘story’ and re-post it again and again, but what is the point?

I’ve done so much research into this, and nothing so far has convinced me or given me any idea of the benefits.

I’ve never been so stumped by a new ‘app’.  I don’t want to be considered as being ‘closed’ to new technologies.

Does anyone have a good reason why business should be using ‘SnapChat’? Can anyone explain it to me?  I would love to hear your thoughts.

Despite the best efforts of marauding cattle, our ribbon wood has survived and has a bountiful supply of flowers this year.🙂
