Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Ryder Cup

We've been trying to watch the


being played this year at

Celtic Manor Golf Course, Newport, Wales


The countryside is stunning,

but it's been a bit wet and windy


which was a bit tough on the players.



They had to keep waiting for theses guys to squeegee the greens



So they finally gave up and had a 7-hour rain delay.


The weather forecast for the rest of the weekend is good,
so, with the time change and all, it's going to mean some very early mornings for
Brilliant Husband and I.

Lord, love-a-duck, what were the organizers thinking...

Wales in October!

  3. I listened to an interview held six years ago when Wales was selected as a location for the Ryder Cup. I forget the participants were, but it went something like this.
    "So...Wales? and what do you think the weather will be October 2010?"
    "Hmmmm...pretty sure it will be wet and windy".

    No Tom...organisers on terra firma...so that let's Molly off the hook..we know she is a celestial being.

  5. Oh My Goodnes...up at 5.00 and glued to the cosy chair (with blanket and coffee) until 1.00...I think my eyes have become square. Thank goodness it was a grey, cold and rainy day here.
    Europe came our roaring in the last round today...let's hope they can keep the momentum for the final round tomorrow!
    Molly...your country is beautiful!
