I posted this on my Facebook Page yesterday, 4th November, and thought my readers on this blog would like to see it:-
“Thirty-five years ago this very evening, we moved our belongings into No. 10. We moved our whole Family in the next evening. And we’ve lived in this smashing little row of stone-built cottages ever since.
Thanks, Bont for your warm welcome back then, and for your cheery friendship ever since.
Thanks, too, to the whole of Old Cardiganshire and the whole of Wales for curing all our big-town ills.
Diolch yn fawr i ch’i, pobl!”
For non-Welsh-speakers, “Bont” is what we locals call our village: Pontrhydfendigaid. And, yes, I can translate that into English if asked politely!
