Well, the Sun rose on a pretty full week! John was away for most of it, as I shared earlier, but he certainly picked the time to go.
It started fairly leisurely - a nice weekend trip into Stornoway, seeing what was new in the harbour.
Then snow arrived - changing the landscape to a magical winter wonderland.
Then St Nicholas visited - surprising how many goodies a pair of red crocs can hold.
Then came the hurricanes! Thankfully no damage - only blown over dustbins ( and a blurry photo.) Other folk were not so lucky.
Then there was the Great Pig Escape! They had been secretly tunnelling away on the other side of their plot and were discovered happily rooting away in the next croft! It was a chase of epic proportions, but some fantastic neighbours helped James and I round them up. Three middle aged women and a small boy running frantically around waving sticks and shouting "Here piggies!" must have been a site to behold :D I repaired the gaps as best I could. Thankfully the master fencer is back now and has taken care of it properly.
And we also managed to fit in some Christmas baking and cooking too. I will be sharing this cranberry recipe later in the week.
Just snapshots of our week here - trying to hold on to these everyday moments that might be forgotten in the busy-ness of life. What joys have touched you over these last Seven Days?
This will be the last of my Seven Days posts for a while. I hope to return to it, or something similar in the New Year. Thank you for joining in with me. xxx
