Have a lovely time at the carol service. Sadly I am on the school run today so can’t make it. This Friday is sadly also not free for RB due to work :cry: . However I have the Friday off for Christmas Lunch and work will not get in the way of that one!! :mrs_claus: :christmas_tree:


That reminds me - a while ago in London I came across a cashpoint with a Cockney option:


Sorry about the huge pictures!


With Friday being :santa: Cinio Nadolig: :santa: there won’t be a Royal Blenheim meetup, of course - just the one this week :slightly_smiling_face::

  • Wednesday morning, 11 Dec from 10:30am in Café Bap, Abingdon Rd

Hwyl, John

Speaking Practice- Must try harder!

That’s hilarious! I love it when people play around with language and don’t treat it as something all grammatical and serious :clap:


Unfortunately one of us has had to drop out for today’s midday Xmas lunch in Cafe Bap so there’s a last minute place available - let me know as soon as you can if you’d like to take it :slightly_smiling_face:
Hwyl, John


Helo pawb - If you take a look at the winners of this year’s SSiW Eisteddfod ( ) you’ll find a familiar name

Llongyfarchiadau Ruth! Da iawn ti!


Diolch John. My entry inspired by Liam :blush: really enjoyed the challenge.


Llongyfarchiadau Ruth! Ardderchog. Also Thank you everyone for your company today. Cinio Nadolig gwych. Bethan


Yes, indeed! :slightly_smiling_face:
Also commiserations to @cat-1 and @rebecca who couldn’t make it in the end


Thanks John for organising and everyone for the lovely company. It was really good. The food was great. A day off work well spent.
:wine_glass: :santa: :plate_with_cutlery: :christmas_tree:


That was an excellent meal. I still feel full. Thank you to everyone for your company.
Congratulations to @ruth-connor on the Eisteddfod win.


Adding my thanks to John for organising and my congratulations to Ruth on winning!

I feel privileged to have been welcomed into this group of learners. You’ve really helped my motivation. Thanks to Richard for inviting me to SSiW six months ago.

Here we all are in Café Bap - the photo doesn’t do justice to the mountains of food!


Well done Ruth, and thanks to everyone for a great time. Thank you John for organising and thank you Caffi Bap! Oedd y cinio yn wych.


Wel, diolch o’r galon pawb for such a really enjoyable Cinio Nadolig! :slightly_smiling_face:

With next week the last before Christmas and school hols starting on Friday, would changing our meetup days allow more of us to make it? E.g. changing Wednesday in Cafe Bap and Friday in the RB to the Tuesday & Thursday? Let me know what you think :slightly_smiling_face:

Hwyl, John
PS Don’t forget we have a walk+sgwrs pencilled in for Sat 28th and it might also be possible to fit in a second walk before the New Year if anyone is interested


Hi John - for once I can actually make Wed and Fri next week, but Thurs is also good. Happy to fit in with whatever suits the majority.


Hi Chris - since my earlier posting I’ve heard that maybe Cat’s will be able to make it on Wed; also I’ve realised I couldn’t make Thurs, so maybe best to stick to Wed after all, plus the usual Friday


I can make Wed and Fri next week, but not Tues or Thurs.


OK - let’s stick to our usual days then, so next week’s meetups will be:

  • Wednesday morning, 18 Dec from 10:30am in Café Bap, Abingdon Rd
  • Friday morning, 20 Dec from 12:00 in the The Royal Blenheim, corner St Ebbes/Pembroke St

Hwyl, John


Thank you Owen for uploading lovely photograph. I really enjoyed our Cinio Nadolig! I’m unable to make Cafe Bap on Wednesday unfortunately however I hope to be at RB on Friday. Looking forward to seeing you all then. Hwyl Bethan
