Cwtch – Welsh word for an affectionate hug. There’s no literal English translation, but its nearest equivlent is “safe place”. So if you give someone a cwtch, you’re giving them a “safe place”. Also used for hug, snuggle, protect. pronounced cutch Cwt as in put and ch as in chicken. I came across this not long after I moved to Wales and the sentiment sums up all that is important to me.
In 2009 I moved to Wales I intended to start the simple life. You know the one. More home cooking, baking, preserving. More sewing, knitting, crafting, furniture restoration. More reading, writing, listening to radio plays, studying. More hill walking, hiking, beach combing. In short more Living. Four years later I find myself living between three different places and working in London. Life is all about an adventure and I never say no to an adventure. Although my latest path is not one I planned or would necessarily choose this is where I am right now. If you wish to then pull up a seat at my virtual kitchen table. Join me in my musings and share your thoughts. I love to chat as all my “real life” friends will tell you.
I love to travel but oer the last 9 years I have only left the UK on two short trips. Not a big deal as I am discovering how beautiful the UK is in my adventures with my campervan.
I started my original blog with a plan to show my crafting and furniture restorations. Like all good intentions though life got in the way and time to do these things became limited. I continue to blog about anything and everything that I feel enthused to share.
