    Welcome to the message boards Jeannette, I hope you get to meet some old friends here.

    It sounds like a very nice life you've got yourself in Wales, I think I could handle getting to walk on a beach whenever I wanted.

    I could probably handle a brisk walk on the mountains too, providing it was nice and scenic of course.

    So chillet thinks bed uth is bandit country,well he must be mistaking it for somewhere else.Bedworth was never that lively.Imust be missing loads,but then again i guess your right,being ableto walk 5mins to the beach and chill with a bottle of wine isnt that bad afterall.

    Bedworth is usually known as Banjo Playing country.

    how can you miss Bedworth ? i sometimes have to go through there when i am cycle training - errrrrrr. Don't you have to have 6 fingers on each hand to live there - i hate to say it, but i have a uncle (who i havn't seen for years) that lives there.
    He went on holiday to Greece in the 80's and when he came back he converted his lounge to a greek taverna - bar with drapping fishing nets (i'm serious) greek music and copious bottles of ouzo.....only Bedrock , god bless em!

    Bedworth, have been twice. Both times to Tesco. First time by train and that railway station is spooky later in the day. The next time by bus. Coming back the bus went down a road with all the judder bars/speed humps/sleeping policemen - depends where you are from - felt a bit like the words of the Elvis Presley song... o/' all shook up ... o/' - I'll stick with Asda in Nuneaton thanks.
