Hello there everyone!

 

I'm Sara. I've been a reader of Fiona's blog for a few years but this is the first time I have ventured on to the forums!

This seems the perfect place for me to be - there seems to be a board for nearly every interest I have!

I'm really looking forward to meeting you all and getting stuck in laugh

 

PS - I don't know why my dog is on my avatar, assuming it has something to do with Gravatar linking to my email address?!?!

What part of South Wales are you from. I have fond and long memories of Wales, staying here in the Brecon Beacons since I was about 12.

Hi everyone, thanks for your lovely welcomes 🙂

 

I was raised (mostly) in Ystrad Mynach, not very far from the Beacons and only half an hour from Abertillery. Now living a few miles up the road in Bargoed. Not the prettiest place to live but it'll do for now! 😉

Crikey, quite close to where I lived.  I revisited Abertillery some years ago and it was very dismal, shops boarded up, posters pasted on every surface.  Not at all like the neat little town I grew up in.  I hope that it pulls itself up again.  I don't recall ever going to Bargoed though it wasn't that far away.  I  hope you'll jump in on other threads too, join in the chat, as it were.  Good to have you here.  wave

I'll try that again!
