South Wales is good but will you miss your friends? Having moved so often ourselves and ended up practically Billie no mates it is a thing worth considering.


Newby Report 6 Jun 2014 21:55

Still a bit boring on here..
Ann.. TBH .. you probably know about the recent past..
I was born , grew up , moved away and came back to the place I was born .. I don't want to die here..
There is a whole world out there just waiting .. OK it,s Wales but its a start and Mum comes with us and Wales is a beautiful place to live

maggiewinchester Report 6 Jun 2014 23:40

I don't live in Wales, but HAVE lived in Wales.....

Lived in both 'English' Wales (Haverfordwest) and 'Welsh' Wales (St Davids), and can count to 5 in Welsh. :-D


ann Report 6 Jun 2014 23:55

I have family in North Wales does that count?


Newby Report 7 Jun 2014 00:10

ladyScozz don't .. I get lost on the M5 !
Maggie..whats the difference between English Wales and welsh Wales?
Ann .. your in........... love XXX


maggiewinchester Report 7 Jun 2014 00:42

Hi Newby,
The difference (according to my elder sister who went to school in both areas) is that in Haverfordwest, lessons were taught in English, in St Davids, they were taught in Welsh - and I'm talking about over 50 years ago. Hence, though I didn't go to school there, I can count to 5 in Welsh - my sister loved playing 'schools' with me as the 'victim'.


JemimaFawr Report 7 Jun 2014 00:55

I live in Carmarthenshire, South Wales on the Coast.

Maggie- My father's family originate from the Haverfordwest area of Pembrokeshire. My Grandparents moved to Carmarthenshire in the late 1920s.


maggiewinchester Report 7 Jun 2014 01:04

I'm Hampshire/Suffolk/Cornish back for many years.
Possible Dutch influence in Norfolk area in 16th century - draining the Fenns.
Apart from that, English (not many of us about)
