since I arrived back on Lewis and I've hardly spent a moment in Blogland. I miss it. I really do. I miss knowing what my Blogland friends are doing. I arrived back last Friday and, David, a friend of 40 years arrived on Sunday with Molly. The week has been spent catching up with friends and most evenings there have been visitors whilst the days have been spent working in the garden whenever possible.
Molly has watched:
It has rained. We had a guessing game this evening when I couldn't remember who sang 'Listen to the Pouring Rain. Listen to it rain'. Can you remember? If you can't, you'll find the answer here to save you Googleing it.
Some mornings the sun has risen behind the hills of the Scottish mainland over 30 miles away across The Minch.
The sun has shone and it has been warm enough to bring out all the youngsters (who, I bet, are on study leave from school) to the beach below the house:

David decided that the pond algae was already in need of some clearing:
We have since re-laid all the flagstones surrounding the pond and the fish just swam around seemingly oblivious to all that was going on:
David and Molly have been down to the far beach each morning and sometimes met Pat (aka Spesh1) and Briagha (seen here from the house).
All in all it's been a pretty good week.
And now for the weekend.........
