Who am I?

My photo
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?


  1. you not failure life just does not pan out the way we would like it,myself second time too, never been as happy looks like you enjoying yourself as a grandad

  2. Thanks Mark - getting old isn't something that I'm happy with. The grand-kids just making it that much easier! Dyl
