I have loved having guests over the last few days, but the feeling of space and freedom when the most welcome and well-behaved ones wave their goodbyes is quite joyous. I feel that I have my little house and family back to myself for a few days (until some more arrive at the weekend!).
We were outside sowing seeds under clear blue skies all morning.
Neighbours who we have only seen a handful of times since they moved in were walking past - and we called out to them. They joined us for an impromptu play in Happy Cottage until lunchtime.
