FROM HER BLOG in 2006: 'I have had such a splendiferous [is that a real word? well it is now] day'.....

"today my birthday..... I just have to share it with you. It was not a day of thrills and great new excitements. Just a perfect day, in the words of the song. I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and all its small pleasures. A perfect way to spend a birthday.....The sun was shining, the sky was the brightest blue and there was not a breath of wind........The countryside was just perfect, full of beautiful trees with orange, yellow and copper leaves pressed up against a completely cloud free intense blue sky. The hedges packed with beautiful red berries such as rosehips. Not a cold day, just perfect for a jumper and gilet, and, of course, my magic hat ....."

Thank you so much for this Robyn, I love reading things by Daisy. I discovered her blog when she had already moved on, so didn't get the chance to know her personally. I can imagine what kind of wonderful person she was though. I will be keeping you in my thoughts today ; )

Daisy has the same birthday as my grandmother - another strong woman from the debatable lands.
