Father’s Day

did you know that father’s day originated in America in 1908 to originally commemorate the loss of 210  miners, who were fathers in west virginia.   now it complements mother’s day and is celebrated in many countries throughout the world.  Robert likes it because he always gets more chocolates, today he got a set of printed cards by Robert Hardy  which I found in Margaret Howell, which he absolutely loved and a collectors edition of Royal Mail stamps of James Bond!  For some reason, I have a bit of a soft spot for those lovely packs of collector stamps!

i loved this rainbow that greeted us in st agnes cornwall a few years ago.
