Life in North Wales with an eccentric Welshman, a dog in the twilight of his years and one in the 'know-it-all' of youth.
"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

My 'green' present
Keith is not one for detailed Christmas preparations. Left to him, not one card would be bought, written or sent and certainly no-one would get any presents.
So I was pleasantly surprised when my gaze was directed towards a late addition to the pile of presents in the living room with the information that it was for me.
Not only that, but, as you can see, he took great care to wrap it with easily recyclable wrapping paper. None of this glittery, shiny, non-recyclable stuff that the rest of us use, oh no. I shall look forward to unwrapping it on Christmas morning.
