OK, hoping that this might be an encouragement.
Today, I had to update my mobile phone answerphone "greeting" (in English). For some reason, I sounded different to real life.
When I got home, I made a dummy voice recording, again in English. Again I sounded slow and in a Northern accent from 30 years ago. How weird.
I'm taking comfort that I'll sound better in the wild, both in English and Welsh.
As I said, I hope that will be an encouragement.
