  3. Traditionally Celebrating Your Culture . . .

    Growing up in South Wales in the 1970’s, there was always great excitement towards the end of February as we prepared for Saint David’s Day on the 1st March. The morning of St David’s Day, we would dress in traditional welsh costume, which smelt unpleasantly of moth balls, and head to school like a procession of Diddy Men.(https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4320334/) The girls...

  8. Do you know your 'real' Dad?

    With Father’s Day approaching in many countries of the world, I have been reflecting on my life as Dad to my daughter who has just celebrated her 11th birthday this month.
