Thankful Thursday

I cannot believe that it's now 9 sleeps (and within an hour I'll be starting my tenth) since I arrived back in Scotland.  I had a few days near Glasgow before I came up to Lewis last Sunday and since I got back it's been absolutely non-stop from dawn (sunrise is just after 5am!) until bedtime.  I thought that I was going to have a quiet catch-up week but heck no.  I think, too, that I've spent far more time explaining why I've not done any posts than I would have spent had I actually done some.  So I shall try to do better from here on in.  However I shall be over on Eagleton Notes for the next 6 months or so with the occasional post here as and when something takes my fancy.  I hope that you will join me there.

I'm hoping that I will have lots of posts with interesting photos over the period because I've got lots of places to go and things to do over the summer.

In the meantime the views at around 5am on Monday morning - the first spent back on the Island -  were all that a soul could desire:

So today I am thankful to be back safe and sound in my 'other' home after my little travel scare and thankful for my dear friends who have looked after my home here whilst I have been away.  What would I do without you Pat and Dave?


  1. Glad Pat and Dave have looked after your home so well. I guess they deserve a huge thankyou. Perhaps you can reward them by bringing some super weather for them.

    (It's a good job I don't try measuring things by sleeps - I had five yesterday and none the day before!)

  2. Looking forward to reading new Eagleton Notes!

  3. Hello Graham:
    These are indeed the most incredible images. Wonderful! We are so pleased to know that all is well with you.

  4. WOW! These images are beautiful!! I wish you a wonderful summer in a part of the world I would love to visit one day.

  5. Traveling from place to place can be very tiring -I'm saying that from experience! The silver- or gold lining are beautiful photos you shot! Happy ABC day!

  6. What an amazing picture of rain falling. It looks as if someone has scribbled over the cloud! I will catch up with your blog now....

  7. This is very strange - I see that this is an old post and yet it appeared in my feed as the latest one. Do you have any thoughts as to why?
    Anyway, it was a nice post!

    1. No idea at all Jenny. My latest post was the 3 September Happy Anniversary post. Blogger's playing tricks. I'm still in Eagleton - just back from five weeks away in France and Italy and slowly catching up with everyone's blogs.
