It may be... Our music teacher was Welsh and after he took the boys choir on tour to the UK he had to resign in disgrace and ended up playing piano in a sleazy bar.
He was a very good singer though.

I worked in the Welsh Government for years in Cardiff and my hubby is a Cardiff boy.

We now live in the valley, where I was born and bred

I love Wales, but am soooo looking forward to getting to Canada

Good to meet you and the rest of the members on here!

Its a Welsh party, although I am not Welsh (NE England), my wife is from Wrexham, well Caergwrle. Lived down here for a few years, just counting down the remaining years until we may go to Canada!

We are hoping Fredericton, but we are in the very early stages and lots depends on circumstances when we can and decide to make it happen, in the meantime, I just stalk Canada (as my wife says).

We have not ruled out other areas including Saskatchewan, but its way off yet, my wife is a student nurse, she will not graduate for another year or so and then needs another year experience, but I may get a work transfer.

Anyway good luck to you and I hope your nomination comes through soon!
