Today - give or take a day or two - I will have lived in Wales for half of my life. By a calculation I did sometime ago - and which I have now lost - that's a total of 10867 days. I don't know if that makes me 'half-Welsh' or not but while I don't mind being considered a Londoner since I was born there, I'm not particularly keen on being considered 'English'. I don't hold to the values or attitudes that characterise the typically 'English'. If I could be naturalised, I'd happily become Welsh.
(NB So that I wouldn't lose the note I'd made about this and so forget, I wrote and scheduled this post to appear today on Wednesday, 13th July 2011. Over three years ago! I wonder what has happened between then and now?)
