Well the Queen or one of her kin keep showing up here to check on us.

Any minute I expect you to burst into song with the Welsh miners. BTW, I was married to a bloke from Cockermouth, Cumberland. Took me a long time to figure out what a nappy was. He had a very strong Scottish accent. My youngest daughter learned to talk from him. It took me a year to get rid of her Scottish accent. She could roll those R's like a beer barrel.

the queen? nobody's told her yet....they wouldn't dare "off with their head" is still a very popular phrase round buck house!!
the nappy thing...that must have been messy for a while addie!!cockermouth is in cumbria but i know what you mean,very beautiful part of the world it is too,right on the edge of the lake district & birthplace of william wordsworth.it was that area & the fields full of daffodils that inspired the poem.
i was born & grew up in north wales,strong rugby & mining tradition.i played rugby but they wouldn't let me down the pits 'cos i couldn't sing.mind you i did scream a few times during a game...a painful sport!!!

I wandered lonely as a cloud....

....and came upon a host of golden daffodils.

One of the first poems I ever memorized. My daughter lives on Wordsworth Street the next block over from me. We live in the poets district of this town. Some streets are named after European cities, some after battles of the Revolutionary War, some after poets, etc.

My ideal vacation would be to visit Wales in the springtime when all the glee clubs are rehearsing. My favorite folk song is "All through The Night."

Sleep my child and God will tend me,
All through the night.
Guardian angels God will send me,
All through the night.

Sang that many times to my babies. Makes for beautiful harmony.

but the kicker was that every morning at our 10am coffe break, the old bog hopper would fire up a pipe with cherry tobacco, make sourdough toast, boil a pot of irish breakfast tea, and microwave a can of king oscar sardines in oil to have on the toast with the tea.

the combination of those smells was just too much.

i ended up taking my breaks outside after that.

I like King Oscars on toast with a slice of onion, then the sardines and top with squiggles of yellow ballpark mustard. I admit, at work, no one wants you to share the love.
