Hello there. My name is Jacqui. I live on the beautiful Isle of Lewis, part of the Outer Hebrides with my husband John, and James, our six year old son. I have three grown-up children - Karen and Kenneth, who live on the ScottishMainland, and Kristine, who lives in the town here. Both my girls are married and both my sons in law are called Daniel. Karen and Daniel have two children - Finlay and Erin, and Kristine and her Daniel are expecting their first baby in May. Kenneth is at University in Edinburgh and lives there with his girlfriend, Louise. I also have a step-daughter, Veronica, who lives in Switzerland with her husband and two boys. My Dad and Step-Mother live on the mainland. All of them feature here too at various points.
We live on a croft, where we keep cows, sheep and hens and do a bit of growing - everything is always a work in progress, as we live out the cycles of the year. A lot of time is spent gazing and the scenery, and we have other projects and interests too - all of which find their way here from time to time.
Do join me as I document out lives here - ordinary, yet extraordinary days.
