Why life is good in South Wales

Now that Meagan, Emily and I have decided to stay in Wales for good and finally bought our house in the Mumbles, its good to see we have one of the worlds best beaches just around the corner.

Oxwich Bay was voted one of the 12 best beaches in the world by the Travel Magazine and while I prefer Rhossili beach, Oxwich Bay certainly is beautiful. So don't go to Bali this year, come and explore the wonders of the Gower instead.

Please turn it down....

At the risk of sounding like a grumy old man, one of the things that has been really bugging me recently is people who can't be bothered to use headphones when listening to music on their mobile phones in the belief that the rest of the world wants to listen to it. Normally its played really loud and on a very small loudspeaker which makes it twice as bad.

Therefore, I decided to politely ask them to turn it down (i.e off) and both times its had the desired effect, although I hadn't quite expected the young man on the Bakerloo line yesterday to shout its not fair and stomp off down the carriage like Kevin The Teenager
