Who am I?

An individual, of no great importance, who is unable to the see the natural world as a place for competition. I catch fish, watch birds, derive immense pleasure from simply looking at butterflies, moths, bumble-bees, etc - without the need for rules! I am Dylan and this is my blog - if my opinions offend? Don't bother logging on again - simple!

Why I'm still here?

Knowing what a failure I was as a Dad (husband - 1st time round) I have discovered a niche which suits me. A Grand-dad, the most outrageous lunatic that kids could wish for? I wind them up, show them stuff that Mum & Dad have no idea about - then bugger off! Brilliant - the kids love me and their parents have to accept this because I'm old!
"Touch Me Perce!" - Bryn - the defender of his princess (his mum & my daughter; Sarah-Jayne)
My daughter, Sarah-Jayne, gave Bev and I our first - Bryn, an incredibly focused boy who finds interest in Fred Dibner and engineering, yet still not at school. He sees the world from a very strange perspective (says who?) and asks questions that are way beyond his tender age.

Emily - one stroppy two year old!
Emily is two, today, time flies by at such a rate when you get older. She is the complete antidote to all that is wrong with modern life and the pressure that it incurs. I have to admit that she has me doing things that I wouldn't have done with my own children - age and experience playing a major part?

Bev and I are committed to the future and our role as Nan & Grand-dad; Harry is already here, Sarah-Jayne expects our 4th grandchildren's club member in June - hopefully membership will be closed after this?
