That's 'alright!' in Welsh.

I've been pointed in this forum's direction by the kind JohnX (as he's known on PentaxForums) after a query about selling a recently-acquired K-50 (and others)! I'll be sure to join in wherever I can, and thanks in advance for undoubtedly making me feel welcome!

Diolch.

The only Welsh I know is “that’s lush!” and “what’s occurin?”

I look forward to being educated, my Welsh wife has failed in 40-odd years. Some things she says are a complete mystery to me.

My dad is fluent but my mam doesn't speak an iota of it. Ergo, there's never really been much Welsh spoken in the house and, as such, I've never really learned. I can say and read a few things and can understand if it's spoken slowly enough.

I WILL learn one day, promise!

Although I live in Kettering and am now retired (15 yrs) I worked from home for a welsh firm in Llandudno Junction for 29yrs. and the only Welsh I ever learned was " Boru Da" excuse the spelling I am english after all.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

Bore da Vic. Croeso Benz3ne.

I have forgotten all my Welsh. I used to speak it, badly, as a kid, picked up on visits to family and friends. A couple of them were monoglot so it was essential to speak a bit. never learned to read it though.
Gradually the visits got less and less as the family died out, and now it seems I only have room in my brain for two languages at a time so I will stick with English and Dutch now. Tried for years to learn Spanish with no success, and any French I learned has also gone. Always comes as a suprise to others when we turn up in a Dutch vehicle and can't speak French or German

When I say I still don’t understand my Welsh wife it’s the unfathomable phrases she keeps coming out with: if I hang a picture which isn’t straight she says I have an eye like a stinking eel! What’s that all about?
