Happy Birthday, Younger Son!

'It's easy to get there. You join the motorway and then come off at the first junction.'

What Younger Son forgot to say was to take the motorway going west. Not east. Go to Neath not Port Talbot. 

But I was on automatic pilot and having looked up Dyffryn Clydach on google maps I knew it was exactly next to the big road and just after Aberdulais. Except of course it turned out it wasn't.

'Dyffryn Clydach is an area not a place,' YS explained after we'd taken a second four mile detour and I was complaining that none of the road signs pointed to it. But we got there in the end, there being a willow weaving and woodworking workshop that Younger Son had organised in his role as events manager for Actif Woods.

Nuora, Grandson4 and I were joining him as it's his birthday and he had to work, having worked all weekend as well. 

It was a glorious day and after taking GrandSon for a walk in the woods I joined in the activity.

Great directions, Ha Ha!
Lopsided, but a heart nonetheless!
What a fun Birthday party and the dessert - looks delicious!
