The Oilseed Crops are stunning at this time of year.
Just a carpet of yellow.
As we walk along the path I ponder the chances of being ambushed by a group of barbarians in giant banana costumes. Son wonders if this would be the perfect location for Pikachu to hide.
As we walk along son suddenly asks
“Why do I have dyslexia?”
Son already knows the answer but it’s vagueness, it’s lack of clarity doesn’t sit well with his way of thinking. You can’t give him a definite answer. All you can do is reassure him that Dyslexia has absolutely nothing to do with intelligence. Having Dyslexia does not mean your stupid. It just means you learn in different ways. You tell him all the wonderful people who are dyslexics. The wonderful careers, the unbelievable achievements. Dyslexia doesn’t stop you dreaming.

I suddenly start signing the Beetles song ‘Yellow Submarine’.
And John Lennon.
We go back to silence and yellow.
