ramblings of an optomistic spirit



Gosh ...where has the time gone.
My oldest son was 21 at a the weekend.
So, said son and girlfriend, my other son and my Dad all came for a visit.
Scrummy supper when they arrived on friday night. Then a cosy catch up in front of the fire.


We wrapped up warm, as when we woke snow covered all the mountain tops ....brrrr
We visited Andy and I's favourite bird hide.So Rhys could try out his new binoculars.
We popped to one of our favourite haunts to warm up on homenade soup and bread for lunch.
Home for a warm up and change of clothes and out for a birthday tea.
Then back home for birthday cake and sparklers :-)

After breakfast and a lazy morning ...they began to drift off....
Of course this was all interspersed with 2 brothers bickering, a grandson and grandad with totally
different political beliefs each disputing their beliefs !
A five month old pup terrified of balloons.
Some fence posts put up in the garden and more birthday cake to be eaten .......but ....

what a great weekend :-)


  1. I glad you all had a great week, happy birthday to your son.

  2. What is a family get together without a lively political discussion and some childish bickering. ?

    It sounds wonderful.
