I had a wonderful Birthday....

and thank you to everyone who sent me Birthday Wishes....I appreciate your good wishes and can say I had a

Great Day

Mum and Dad took me away for a couple of days over my Birthday.  We stayed in a lovely Hotel in Faringdon near Oxford  (here's a view from the grounds)



the village itself is really interesting with a lot of old buildings



and mum did a quick sketch of the old town hall, a late 17th Century building built on stone pillars





 but I did get  some wonderful walks on the outskirts of the town including around the Folly on the hill



Oh...but I didn't want to leave mum on the seat by herself....she said something about wanting to sketch


Just one last look back before I walked around the Folly with Dad



and mum's sketch she did whilst Dad and I had our walk


plus one of the view where she was sitting



and as usual I found the worlds best stick




All in all I had a brilliant Birthday

  6. Feliz aniversario William! I had a beautiful Burgau beach stick that I wrapped in newspaper and took to the post office to send to you but the stupid mail person couldn't understand me so I couldn't send it. Sorry. Tell your person that her sketches are great and make me want to visit there.

    Tchao-wow,
