Why I’ve Learned Welsh

  Up until this year, I primarily considered Welsh to be a nag from teachers, an unnecessary complaint to get me to listen.

What’s In The Headlines?

This day was originally ‘International Women’s Working Day’, a day used when it made its first appearance in 1909 in remembrance of the 1908 strike of the International Ladies Garment’s Union.
