Seven Days
















I am moving slowly, happy if I achieve one practical thing each day, whether it is decluttering a drawer, dealing with some paperwork, running an errand or whatever. I am also trying to find one moment of blessing each day - something that brings peace or joy. This week I am grateful for

:: A quiet spot to sit

:: Sparkling fresh herring done in oatmeal with new potatoes

:: Some trashy TV

:: The end of term and goodbye to a special teacher with a beautiful card from the children

:: Colourful flags in the harbour

:: Surprise visitor

:: A candid snap of me, by James, which I quite like.

Wishing you moments of blessing in the seven days ahead.

  3. I like your idea of moving slowly, doing one useful task a day and finding a blessing. The blue of your sweater or shawl is heavenly.

  10. I love your photos and reflection of a week. Eight months after losing my husband and I live each day, slowly, one at a time and it's OK. I share some trashy tv with my girls, we have had a few pink magnum moments spurred on by your photo, and we gathered some friends together to reflect on my husbands lovely life last weekend. With the love and friendship of others it's all OK. Now I am searching for fresh herrings! I am taking my daughters to Mull this summer and maybe I will find some then. Your lovely images of your wedding rings made me think. I had mine made on Mull 24 years ago so I think it will be lovely to take the girls there. Your photos have done much to inspire me in my grief I so hope they help you too. Strength to you. Ali x
