Seven Days















So many things happen in our busy lives that I want to hold on to. Little things - things that might go unnoticed, or missed in the hurly burly. Nothing special and yet - oh - how completely special!
The last Seven Days have been busy - filled with sunshine, community and celebration. Wonderful Autumn days - so many moments that have brought joy to my heart.

♥ Golden sunlight, setting - much earlier now - behind the Harris hills
♥ Halloween lanterns glowing in the window
♥ Warming meals - pasta in cheese and parsley sauce
♥ Pale blue Autumn skies and black seed-heads
♥ A few hours gardening
♥ Vikings :)
♥ Fireworks with friends.

What ordinary - extraordinary happenings have touched you in the last Seven Days?  If you would like to join in - on any day, please leave a link in the comments, and we can all share in the joy.. xx

  1. Stunning photos as ever Jacqui. That first one is fantastic, and the food, well that made my mouth water!

    I'll try and join in with this next week, (haven't got enough photos this week!)

  2. I have enjoyed these lovely evocative images of your week. I don't know if it is the same for you on Lewis, but a couple of days of sunshine and brightness after the seemingly endless wet days recently seems like such an additional blessing.

  3. Love that first shot of yours - I think I'll have to give this a go - it is just a case of remembering to do it and have the camera at the ready at all times.

  12. Janet's comments were exactly the case for me as well. So now I must make a request: please share the recipe for the pasta! I tried to search your site to see if you might have posted it previously, but it didn't work for me. Anyway, thanks again for sharing. I enjoy your blog very much!

  13. Thank you all
    - kerri - i will try and post a recipe this week, haven't had a cooking post for a while.
    Lovely to see folks joining in - there are no rules - you don't need to have 7 photos of each day. it is just good to stop now and then and notice the beauty in the ordinary things we do.
    Chris - bewildered? Ah - are you wondering what those Vikings were talking about?

  27. Hi really enjoy your blog , I am a silent reader but am very interested in the way you parent your yongest, I had my first two children at 21 and 23 and now have had my third at 36 and I am very differnt and do things very differently, did you find that too ? Also you mentioned once briefly that he slept with you in your bed, could you please do a post on how you coped with a 1 year old, your thoughts and patterns, it would be sooo helpful.

  28. I am so pleased so many of you have joined in with this. No pressure - just whenever, whatever. Loved seeing everyone;s days. I think the Vikings were my favourites - it was such a fun community night. Iain - of course all the Vikings that stayed here are always cheerful. Yo Ho indeed.
    Hello Anon - thanks for your comment. I will have a wee think about that. I have 4 children and had a big gap between No 1 - who i had when i was 18, and No 2 - 10 years later, then 20 months later I had no 3, and then our big 15 year gap. I think I have parented them all differnetly, to be honest, but i am aware of so many different things this time, that I didn't know before We did co-sleep, and still do to some extent as j always seems to creep through in the night, but when he was a year old, we had our mattress on the floor,so he wouldn't fall out. I just settled him to sleep and then went throught to he sitting room for the evening. Our bedroom was just across the hall, so I could hear him if he cried. Not sure if that was what you were asking, but hope it helps.
    Happy to have you along. xxx
