Diolch John! And, I guess, llongyfarchiardau i fi/congratulations to me on being the 1000th messager?! Wonder how fluent we’ll all be by the time we hit 2000 …


#1003

Completely fluent, but still learning, I hope!


#1004

Fantastic to see and chat with @johnwilliams_6 and @RichardBuck this afternoon! Diolch yn fawr the pair of you for helping me see that my Welsh is happy to be dusted off and put back into service again!


#1005

Great to see you too @rebecca and to find out that your Welsh had only the lightest of layers of dust! :slight_smile:


#1006

You are too kind! :smiley:

@s-coates1 @Laura_P_87 are the Wednesday evening meetups in Cowley Rd now up and running again?

Yes they are! :slight_smile:


#1010

Diolch @s-coates1 ! - and that’s 8pm in Big Society, right?


#1011

I don’t think that I can make it on Monday. Sorry.
Sue

I’m going to aim for Thursday this week. It’s been a while since I’ve been to the pub!
See you there! :fries:

I read that as ‘It’s been a while since I’ve been to a pub’ and I thought, what’s she talking about? She’s almost always in a pub when I see her (disclaimer: possibly operating from a statistically non-significant dataset).


#1014

You are not wrong.
I’ll rewrite that - It’s been a short while since I’ve been to a pub…


#1015

I’ll come along with the CDs tomorrow, @johnwilliams_6 and @Betterlatethan :slight_smile:

(I’m proud of myself for having worked out how to ‘@’ people!)


#1016

Diolch @rachaelseculer-faber - and I’ll try and remember to bring the Popeth Yn Gymraeg DVD for you


#1017

Diolch, @rachaelseculer-faber. I am still trying to retrieve “Y Gwyll” from my son. He keeps forgetting. It’s extremely unlikely that I will have it by tomorrow, but I have hopes for next week.

#1018

Expecting to make tomorrow, and to make Wednesday evening next week in lieu of any daytime ones.


#1021

Not able to come today - I have a surprise visitor. She obviously needs to learn Welsh for next time!
