What's The Story

I've linked up with the gorgeous Charly over on the POD Cast What's The Story Link Up. Pop on over and have a look at some of the beautiful photos and stories.

Its been 8 years since my beloved Grandad (or Dangrad) as I used to call him passed away. He and I had one of the most special relationships I think I have ever had in my whole life. When I was small we would go on the most amazing adventures involving hiding from giants and leaving gifts for Fairies at the bottom of our garden. As we arrived home my Mum used to look at us and shake her head in disbelief at the state we were in, but all we did was laugh as we told her of all the things we had done that day.

My Dangrad was quite the hero too, he was in the SOE during the II World War. I love telling my kids that their Great Grandad was a real life James Bond.

I miss him every day and know that he is looking down and smiling at the fun I have recreating some of our adventures with my kids.


  1. Aww what a touching tribute to your Grandad, he sounds like an amazing man

  2. Wow, what a brave man he must have been, and he's left us all a legacy - freedom! #whatsthestory

  3. Wow what an incredible post. I love the idea of hiding from giants and leaving gifts for fairies. Your Dangrad sounds like the most amazing person and what a brave man. I bet you have some fabulous stories. Thank you so much for sharing this one #whatsthestory

  4. Your Dangrad looked a very smart man. Photos of our 'elders' always seem to be of smart, well-turned out people... and b/w photos look great.
