Ah, Cardiff – we moved there after a 18 months in Dover, where the skies were permanently hazy grey and the locals aloof. Cardiff by comparison was sunny and the people were warm and welcoming. It gets my vote! Oh, and being able to go to Cardiff Arms Park for a rugby international was an distinct advantage!

I was born in Cornwall and I’m short.

But I’m not a tin miner.

Well done crabb, a distinct difference that not many would have made.

You lived in Cardiff for a whole year? My god, I spent a fortnight there one Sunday.

Ah, you’re a Welsh git, not a pommy bastard, PB?? 😉

Oops, I just googled it and discovered “Nadelik lowen” is Cornish. Just when I was about to make short man syndrome jokes – my profound apologies! (Maybe the Cornish are short too, to work down the tin mines!). The Welsh is “nadolig llawen”. so it’s very closely related, which tripped me up. We lived in Cardiff for a year and my kids learnt Welsh in school, and it’s the only phrase I and they (faintly)remember.

Anyway, Canberra is a ghost town now – hope all of you still here can enjoy the slow pace even if you have to work, and happy new year to you all!

Overheard said :

What’s with this ‘we’ sh!t, boat man?!

boat man! great!

makes me feel better after being dragged to church at (shudder) 9.00 am this morning. at least the kids slept in…

many reasons to be grateful this year. I hope next year is as much fun for us all.

as was mentioned previously, if you are travelling, be safe. If at home, still be safe, and I will look forward to the discussions we have in the next year…

I’m so bored I could chew my own leg off to escape. But maybe I’ll chew someone else’s off instead…just for a laugh.
