Well, it seems as if there are quite a few of us Welsh ex-pats lurking in the wilds of England. So in a desperate attempt to breathe some life into this forum, I thought I'd try and find out who we all are and where we live!

So I'll start. My name is Si n, I live in South Bucks but hail originally from a village near Llangollen. I moved down south for work, met Tam Lin, and the rest - as they say - is history.

Okay chaps, your turn!

I'm a Prestatyn lad, myself.
Unfortunately, there's not much decent (well paid) IT work in North Wales (plenty in Cardiff, though) and so I have to work in England.

Well I'm from Anglesey originally; not going to post anything more specific on t'internet. Very Welsh sounding village, and yes I can pronounce it, even when pissed.
