There were three of us at language learners’ group yesterday, and we talked in English, Welsh and French. I hope there’ll be more people on Tuesday. After that I went to a play called ‘I’m with the band’ at the university. It was a play about a band with members from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland called ‘The Union’. They were together for a long time, but broke up after the guitarist from Scotland left – a reference to Scottish independence. It was funny and interesting, and there was a discussion afterwards with the writer, the director and the actors with Alun Ffred Jones, Wales Assembly Member for Arfon, in the chair.
