Thank you so much to our friend who created this YouTube video featuring Sligo and the surrounding buildings. I have
completely erased from my memory for self-preservation purposes all but forgotten just how bad the house looked when we first purchased it. Enjoy!

For the third time this winter it has snowed. For the third time this winter it has snowed and the girls are out of school. For the third time this winter it has snowed and the girls are out of school and Marcus is on travel. It’s no wonder I woke-up with a headache. It was as if my body was preparing for the day. But, with the snow, comes a day full of nothing and gives me the chance to write.
A few months back, quite a few months back actually, a friend took some really neat videos of Sligo using his drone. I have been meaning to cut down the videos and possibly add music to them but it turns out my skills are strictly limited to cutting. I think I might have learned how to add music in PowerPoint but I’m not here to give a presentation on the health benefits of not purchasing a 130 year old home so we’ll just have to do without.
Now, the first video is shot from the ground floor up to the second floor and is pretty straightforward. The second video is my personal favorite because if you can pretend like that’s you drunkenly stumbling from room to room you get a real sense of the layout of the house. That is until the very end when “you” crash into the door jamb and collapse on the floor (inches away from the kitchen which is where you were probably trying to get to in order to get some coconut water to chase away that headache and induce vomiting because that stuff is nasty).
(Thank you to Carl Lynn for bringing over his drone and helping capture Sligo in the state in which we acquired her.)
