Horribly chilly today first thing
Not a good day for annual visiting
To look at that which that comfort
Brings - by warming radiators.

Sorry, I don’t follow Rugby -
Nor any Sport much :-)
I’m now thinking if that’s the Town
That starts with S or mayB a C ?

You must B good at singing to win
An award - a Holiday, What fun!
Your Mum and Dad, so proud of that young girl
Smiling at family and bragging to 1 and all.

Nor much to brag about in my town Dorothy- but a famous Rugby Club! :-D
....who did triumph against NZ's mighty All Blacks in 1972! :-D

What fun you must b having in your drama club Dorothy.
As a young child I did some acting and singing, but sadly shy took I away from this as I got big. But I did win a holiday on 1 occasion in a holiday Park from singing :-D

That’s sounds about right :-)
3 junctions on M4 - and so on to your town?
Sadly now not much to brag of any particular
But a Prison, now shut down
That famous Irish Author was in it you know!
A Ballad of it to all did b’stow.

A vast building was nigh, now in ruins
With sum walls still standing- that Tudor king
Brought it down.
Our Drama Group has it for a fortnight annually
To act out works of the famous Bard
Attracting many patrons from our town.

We had rain all day too - lawn, plants and shrubs loving it!

I'm thinking it could be Crimsonding, Dorothy? :-)

But I may b wrong :-D

I am having my living situation on a South Coast part, in a town with 2 pairs of LLs in it and a particular non-consonant that has a ban on this yarn :-D.
You will b knowing that if it has LLs in it- it must b in Cymru :-D

This position has lots of rain, as it is having at this hour :-D
It would b good to c sum sun again for a bit :-D

Our town has a Football Stadium but that has the non-consonant too, occasionally First Division. Not far from London via Paddington. KW who was in Titanic was born in it - also was a young star of AmDram in a similar group In our town. Biscuits world famous until not long ago.... Bulbs and plants now grown in Torquay and Pub ‘liquid’ bought out - sad all round. Now known for big IT units - Microsoft and similar occupy Bulbs and Plants land,

Good to c you on this yarn that forbids a particular non-consonant, Dorothy :-)

You r right. This yarn can b difficult but also good fun.
It's a yarn to chat and laugh on, or to air our difficult situations and support our pals.

I'm sorry you do not c your Grandkids as oft as you would lyk.

Now I'm racking my brains to try to work out which town is famous for 3 Bs :-D
Mayb Googling can assist I? :-D

This looks difficult, but fun :-)

Got to think hard ... all my surroundings contain that !!! including my hobby, which is drama and musicals in a particular local building in our town, which is famous for its trio of Bs, Biscuits, Bulbs and that liquid sold in pubs! Nowadays not in our town :-(

Son and family now living in a coastal town too far away, down a long motorway, so photos and chats usually, with just occasional visits. Two grandsons and a young girl, growing fast.

My Pobol Y Cwm (Vally People) Day at BBC Studios

OH and I had a fabulous day out in Cardiff last wk to visit production layout of my most liking soap- Cymru's Lingo drama Pobol Y Cwm which is on nightly on wk days on S4C (Cymru's' Conduit 4).

It's about folk living in a fictional villij in a rural part of Carms, not so far from us. It has had it's filming in Cardiff for about 6 yrs (BBC Studios had it's building in Cardiff at that tym) but it had it's showing start on TV in 1974.


It was a short walk to BBC Studios from car park and walking along Cardiff Bay was amazing- Bay, boats, watching folk busking, sitting having a drink or food, or just strolling along.

Cymru's National Cultural Occasion (You will know it by it's monica which starts with a not good non-consonant) is in Cardiff Bay this yr and OH & I did walking along many stalls taking in it's air. TV gangs did filming in many parts too.

Soon us got to BBC Studios in Roath Lock.
At tym of waiting to go in, who should b coming out but 1 of the long tym actors from Casualty (Casualty also has it's filming in studios) D'r'k Thompson who plays Charly Fairtopofbody. "Charly" was passing us and did say Hi and shook our hands.


TV folk did show us in to a big room. In front of our chairs were 6 big cardboard cutouts of show's folk. Show's hairstylist has had killing, and 1 of 6 is culprit. All visitors had to pick (in opinion of visitors) who did it!


Following this was a tour of all production layout- rooms, buildings, shops, pub and also out of doors production layout. TV Production folk and a woman actor from Pobol Y Cwm took us around and could not do 'nough to b giving us a brill day!

I had my photo took in good positions ...
Pulling a pint in Pub! dishing out chips in chip shop and lots of positions in show's production layout. :-D
Also a good photo of I with show's woman actor.

It was so much fun!


What follows?
Praps Coronation Road? ;-)

Hi Myk and Kathy and anybody looking in on this yarn :-)

Thank You both for your kind thoughts and words <3 <3

It has now had it's confirmation that Grandson 1 and his 26 month old son are both Autistic. Grandson 2 (GS1's sibling) who is 5 is also badly autistic, but this has b'n known all along.

Grandson 1 also has ADHD.
All this was contributing to his fits and causing him to b "dissociating" and passing out.

GS1 is doing ok, as now him has had aid at long last. But obviously GS1 will b having to occasion assisting in living all his days .

G.Grandson will b having 1 to 1 aid in b4 school class and school. Ashton is struggling with talking too.


Hoping both of you r ok and/coping with day to day living and such <3

Soon I will post and inform you of my fabulous day out in Cardiff at BBC Studios on production layout of my faiv soap! :-D

Oh Mima,
So good to C your writings, but what you say is far from good.
Cannot think of how you R going through it all.
Awful situation.
Wishing you lots of luck and hoping things don't finally disturb your own physical and psychological condition.

Our thoughts will always stay with you.

Aw just saw your kind thoughts for Mima on this yarn!
Thank you Kathy and Myk <3 <3


Things r a bit difficult for Mima now.
OH is ill with a lung condition, and Grandson 1 is not good too.

In fact, GS1 has had a stomachful of having 20 and additional fits in a day, and vomiting also. GS1 cannot play with his 2 babys without passing out.

All this put so much strain on poor GS1 that GS1 has had a Crack-Up, and has had to stay for a bit in hospital. No aid is forthcoming (it would look) to stop this awful condition.

GS1's lady was not coping, as both still so young.
No "from now on" for pair I think, but babys' Mum brings babys to my habitat to c Daddy, as Daddy also has to b watch'd cos of his condition.

So sad about it all. If you cannot assist your child (as GS1 is that to I) not to b in such anguish, it is mortifying.


Just giving account of why I am missing from yarn, but I will try to join in as I can, and with light'r <3 soon.

Thanks Both xxx
