This has to be one of my favourite days of the year.It's my younger daughter's birthday and the
garden is really springing into life as are all the hedgerows.
And I love the idea of it being Lost Sock Memorial Day.
It is also the day that the
Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Fairies was founded.
I know those two because of Messymimi’s super
blog. Despite its title the publisher of this book
(at the request of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Fairies) notes that no fairies were injured or killed in the
manufacturing process... Lady
Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book by Terry Jones, Brian Froud- A fairy
book that is the diary kept by Lady Cottington. Instead of pressing
flowers in it, she pressed fairies. Handwritten and handsomely bound,
this fairy book is as surprising as it is pleasing.

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
