Give them Cawl, followed by Welsh Cakes...

PatinCyprus Report 1 Feb 2017 15:32

Husband from Essex, wife from London. She's not into sport and he's into football (Arsenal supporter). I don't think they'll be waving a Welsh flag.

We have a new TV, it's huge. Leigh will look huge. The dog keeps looking at people on it, she went crazy the other day a dog was running through a field towards her. She stood her ground and growled with her hackles raised. How do you explain to a dog that the other dog is just a picture :-S :-D
