‘Cwtch’: The hug invented by the Welsh

I’m a quarter Welsh. My darling grandmother grew up in the Rhondda Valley, a small mining town where her father was the school principal. She didn’t speak a lot of Welsh, other than to delight us by reciting the longest train station name in the world (Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch).

I remember her using it once in hospital, when we first thought she was dying. It’s a special sort of cuddle, she...

It was all I could hear for the next 10 minutes. A muffled, metronomic marriage of snow groaning on sand. After that, I had reached...

The woman with an unspeakable name

I’d like to introduce you to a wonderful old woman whose age is indeterminable and whose name is unspeakable. It’s not that she’s at all sensitive about her age.
