I'm sure I must qualify too...........!

I don't and haven't lived in Wales for a number of years but I'm originally from Bangor in North Wales....and I even have a Welsh name!!!
My family are still there and I try to visit at least once or twice a year, it's surprising how much more I appreciate the countryside now than when I lived there......rain and

My eldest daughter has a Welsh middle name and my youngest daughter's first name is Welsh (I managed to over rule my English OH on that one!!)

Croeso i pawb

I visited part of North Wales a couple of years ago. Prestatyn, Rhos on Sea, Llandudno, Conwy, Bangor and then through Snowdonia. Beautiful place and we'll go again for sure.

We're doing very well thanks Hazel although starting to feel a bit homesick now!
Must be nearly time for another visit to Bangor. Will let you know when so you can come out and give me a wave as the train
Are you keeping well too? I hope so.

Well living in the North of Wales I am a bit bias!!! I love the coastline going up to Bangor, my brother lives in Rhos-on-Sea, and my grandad loved going to Llandudno for "run out" nowhere else would do!

However when I was a small child my parents who were not very well off financially at the time used to take us to the Ffrith beach to stay with Nan & Grandad in their hired was lovely we were spoilt rotten.

Lazing in the sand dunes all day with a picnic lunch, then a ride at the small funfair..........onto the boating lake and mini golf. Then the big treat, a fish & chip supper to take back to the caravan!!

Sue..........Harlech & Shell Island has some lovely beaches and scenery!

One of the people in my family tree is from the Mumbles, married a relative of my grandfathers and lived here in NZ.... I call him the Womble from the Mumbles.
I will watch the Welsh and All Black Rugby matches not for the rugby but for the fantastic Welsh singing.

My parents were Welsh ,my maternal grandfather was English all other grandparents were Welsh
My sister and I, hubby and his brother are all Welsh, all went to the same secondary school.
Hubby and I still live fairly local to that ,tho he lived west of it and I lived east.
My BIL (hubby's bro) lives on Anglesey in Llanfair PG, previously in Wrexham and Caerarfon .
My sister is more of a globe trotter, she moved to SA with other BIL over 20 yrs ago, and have since moved the US.
My dau has a Welsh first name, tho throughout my pregnancy she was going to be called by her now second name, but I changed my mind.:)
Son whom hubby named, has a second name which is Welsh .
I can' talk for Wales' too as may have guessed from my

Yes Sandie but we luv ya..... well we must do as we seem to pop up on the same threads.

The only Welsh I know is what Sandie and Tec teach me. Our Carole on the Aussie thread seems to be collecting Welsh sayings as she comes up with them from time to time.



Dermot Report 26 Jan 2011 23:07

Anyone able to speak Wenglish?

Just realised that loads of my extended family - through marriage - were born in Neath. I might apply for a Welsh Passport now!


Tecwyn Report 26 Jan 2011 23:07

Hi Shaun and everyone,

I was born in the Rhondda, and now live in a small coastal village overlooking Cardigan Bay in South Gwynedd.
We don't have much in the way of amenities or shops etc, but a small price to pay for the peace and tranquility..
I wouldn't want to live anywhere else as the quiet life suits me fine.

Dermot - I also listen to Roy Noble most days.

I'll admit to 5.4 .. my mam and dad were about that height , dad might have been a bit taller.
Hubby's side are all tall , my son is probably the shortest of his cousins at 6ft.
