Facebook advertising doesn't take up much of our time. But we are asked to place adverts for a few clients from time to time. Last week 2 requests came in at the same time. Both clients we'd been trying to encourage to do 'something' not spending very much but one in particular is great local business and they really need to 'up' their followers on Facebook.

I'm a bit of a tree grass and plant lover, gazing out into the garden and dreaming of Spring from my desk. Although I didn't mind the frost this morning it's just gone 4pm and it has dawned on me that that it's still quite light outside, what a revelation.

Wow this month is flying past, it all seems so Christmassy at the beginning of December, thinking about shopping, clients Christmas posts and lots going on with kids and school, rugby and choir's etc. The remembering of dates and times and where everyone needs to be and then it all seems to slow down a bit and hey presto there's a week left till Christmas. I've had an unusual and challenging few weeks with one thing and another but have managed to keep everything at Quack ticking along as usual and also make it to the odd event. I attended the...
