Last evening on the island

We arrived safely home last night from our three week stay back home at my parents'.

How can three weeks pass by so quickly? 

A few nights before we left David (5) said to me, 'I thought we were going to stay for lots and lots of beds, like 20 beds?' I told him that we had and he replied, 'Are you sure? It doesn't feel like it!'

So it wasn't just me.

On our last evening my beloved and I lined up some tin cans and had a bit of a shooting competition.

We're quite the romantics, I know.

His aim was far better than mine, but my excuse was that the gun was quite heavy, and a bit rusty too, and obviously designed for a man. Still, I did manage to hit the target, as you can see from the fourth photo.

I always love being home on the island and a bit sad to leave.

However, once we get home to our own wee house, I'm glad to be home here too. I think three weeks was about long enough to be away.

And look what I found waiting in the garden when we got back.


  1. You look so lady like shotting in that position, it's hardly 'prone' or i don't know what you'd call it "lady like kneeling position"?? Sounds like a lovely stay, love Posie

  2. Sounds like you had such a great time away! And what nice garden surprises to come home to!! :)

  3. Oh so nice to hear you were back home for a nice couple of weeks! I'm praying I can make one of those trips coming real soon! LOVED the target practicing and oh my those tomatoes and raspberries are so beautiful!



I love reading everyone's comments, so thank-you for taking the time to leave them! I try and respond to them here too, so do check back later on.
