Hey Liz - bet their french accents sound pretty good too .  Lift up to restaurant was pretty fast and it did feel a bit strange walking out to a wall of glass with 360 degree views.  Looking out over the bay was fine but looking straight down at the buildings and marina took a bit of getting used to!  Didn't put me off my food though

What's the weather like in your area?

I love Carol Klein's book Grow Your Own Garden which is all about the different methods of propagation.  "Plants for Free" is what my garden is all about

View of the city (can just see the Brecon Beacons in the distance)

Bunny -  I had something very traditional - beer-battered fish, chips & mushy peas (we were at the seaside after all).  BJay, even though it was a grey day it was clear and Swansea Bay and Mumbles Lighthouse looked very atmospheric.  My camera battery only managed 5 pictures of the city, but will get my son to transfer some pics he took of the bay when he gets around to it (snoozing on sofa at the moment). 

Lottie - sorry to hear about your brother .

Evening all - what a bone chillingly cold day it's been.  Glad to be home by the fire .  Hope everyone is warm and well - will try and catch up later.

Had a lovely lunch out today at the restaurant at the top of this building in Swansea city centre (Meridian Tower) which is the tallest in Wales.  The views of the bay and city were fantastic and the food was good too  - we were on the 28th floor!

Just about to go there now Bunny .  Got another busy day ahead tomorrow.

Thanks for the update Geoff - just what I needed 

Congrats to granny-to-be   - a lot of grandmothers here are called Mamgu (the "gu" bit rhymes with "see") and is often shortened to just Gu.   Sad news about the poor little chook

All enjoyed Skyfall.  Hope to chat tomorrow - g'night all.

Evening all - have only missed 2 days and there are so many pages to read!!!!  I'm in need of a quick summary from some kind person.  Have looked at a few pages and at least 3 people have changed names .  Hope you're all well and happy anyway.  Had a lovely day out today with son, friend and OH.  Went to a little town called Llandeilo, then drove over the Brecon Beacons and ended up in a lovely old country hotel where we had a cream tea in the lounge.  We sat on sofas right by a roaring log fire and ate our scones, bara brith and welsh cakes.  Bought DVD of Skyfall which we are going to watch tonight.  Am off to make some nibbles & drinks now before we start.
