Seven Days

So many things happen in our busy lives that I want to hold on to and remember. Little things - things that might go unnoticed, or missed in the hurly burly. Nothing special and yet - oh - how completely special!

We have had Seven Days of spending time with our beautiful guests. So many lovely moments - so hard to choose.

♥ Revelling in these glorious Autumn colours.
♥ Loving all those extra pairs of boots in the hall, still covered with sand from the beach
♥ Watching them fall in love with the stone circle
♥ Shopping in town, (or, if you are 4, then finding more interesting things to do);
♥ Halloween party fun
♥ Late night chess matches (with a wee dram by the side!)
♥ Then all too soon, these seven magical days are over, and we are saying goodbye.

It was such a wonderful holiday - missing them already.

If you would like to join in with your own Seven Days, please leave a link in the comments, so that we can all share in each other's ordinary, extraordinary days.
