It is my birthday today, and look what a lovely card my daughter and her children made for me. Particularly love the portrait by Little Miss M (7).

 

Amber Skies by Aaran Daniel

Do you remember last year when my nephew and his friends were on the Mongo Rally and wrote a song for me?

Well Aaran who put it all together has a new song just out: Amber Skies

 

I think it is beautiful.

And if you want to see and hear the song written for me – I’m known as Dondi by my nieces and nephews – here it is again – earworm alert!

I took my lovely friend for a surpise day out – we had FUN.

Friends who you can be silly with are precious!

Silly Saturday with a Twist

“Let’s play a Game,” says I.

I was thinking a card game, Snakes and Ladders, or Ludo.

Granny plats Twister

Off Big Bro and Little Bro went and brought back Twister – Little Bro was spinning the pointer and taking the photos.

Dalby Forest: 1

One of the best days in Yorkshire was when Cathy took me on a favourite walk of hers in Dalby Forest, to the Bridestones, you can see a map and description here.

We climbed up through the woods

and were both in awe of the colours, especially the larches

Which are particularly gorgeous this year

I can just imagine one of Kate Davies’ designs knitted in the colours above

Yorkshire, Dalby Forest

My hair used to be the colour of that bracken! Seems like another life entirely.

We arrived at the top where the Bridestones are.

Now this stoneYorkshire is referred to as the Pepperpot, but to me she was an old lady, maybe the wise old matchmaker calling Coooo-eeeeeeeee, down the valley

Bridestone

this is her view

A little further along there is an Elf’s tunnel, I had to squat right down low to get this picture, a 3 year old could just about walk through it, and elves of course.

With a wonderful free App on my phone ‘Chirp’ I could identify it as a Jay, then we saw the Jay flitting through the trees, sounding very perturbed about something – like this
