I love having friends and loved ones to stay. There is something so heartwarming about preparing a room for them, putting out fresh towels and flowers. It also gives us the opportunity to revisit places we know well but see them with fresh eyes. Then of course there's the endless laughter and home cooked food.

It's another wet morning up here but I don't mind. The sound of rain has always helped me write. The gentle rhythm of it's falling has a calming affect on me. With flowers from the garden dotted all over the house too, the house feels nurtured and tranquil. Time to put pen to paper...

I become so accustomed to slow starts during the summer holidays that when a busy day comes along, one that requires me getting out of bed early, I resent it. I'm definitely more of a leisurely kind of breakfast girl. One where I can sit, enjoying the sensation of warm pottery cupped in my hands, looking out of the French doors and wandering where the day will take me.

For most of us, the sound of the kettle coming to the boil and gentle whirring away of the washing machine after a holiday bring a much needed familiarity that tells us we are home again. But for me, there is a third custom; picking some flowers from the garden. I always think of an empty flower jug or vase as a sad, neglected thing. Yesterday I came home to a garden bursting with flowers which I have been cutting, arranging and hanging around the home, breathing a sense of life back into the empty rooms.

Strangely enough, these are the summer mornings I love the most. The summer mist is hanging low over Benarty Hill and I can't help but wonder what kind of a day it will be. Will the mist burn away to reveal the summer sun or will the rain be reluctantly dragged in from somewhere? Whatever is to be, Scottish mornings by the loch are far from dull.

These are favourite mornings, they set the holidays apart from the rest of the year. No alarm, no school bell, nothing except my resident wood pigeon outside letting me know he's awake too and is ready to welcome the day.

The very lovely and totally fabulous Jo @countryrootsandwellyboots has asked me #widn and as always, I'm faffing! A few days ago this beautiful stained glass bird made by talented artist Flora Jamieson @theroundwindow arrived and I have been deciding where to put him. I've finally settled on the hallway window frame so he's the first thing I see when I get home. What are @natali_in_norfolk and @kathryn_inthecountryside up to? If you have time ladies of course. #stainedglass #forahappymoment #chasinglight #chasingcolour #pursuewhatislovely #distractionsandinspirations #window #forprettyssake #windowframe #greysky

So much for setting down with Wimbledon. I found the smallest cluster of dust and exclaimed loudly that the kitchen was 'filthy'! There then came 3 hours of hoovering, dusting, disinfecting and faffing. Will I ever learn? Come on wine o' clock, I need you.

July has begun with a beautiful evening over the hills. I always find it strange that the nights are starting to draw in again and yet I'm still waiting for most of my annuals and dahlias to flower. The growing season is later and shorter up here and I have had to learn to be more patient and embrace the seasons as and when they appear.
