Not got too far on that one as yet due to the fact I don't get the opportunity to return to Wales as often as I'd like to hear Welsh being spoken. I may find I have more of an opportunity now though as Steve is a member of a new Welsh men's choir and they are already booked for some major events in Wales (I'm not allowed to say which ones just yet but watch this space).
I simply fell in love with the passion of the Welsh for all that they do and stand for. I also fell in love with the beautiful countryside. Where Steve's family live there are no streetlights, so on a dark night you can see all the stars - very meditative.
One day Angela and Nigel (Steve's mum and dad) and Steve and I went visiting some sacred sites (left). Pentre Ifan is a bronze age megalithic site dating back to about 4000BC. The 'Hill of Angels' can be seen from the site too. There's such a sense of magic and history to be felt there.
The Clogau Today's Special Value, coming up on Monday 16th November, is extra special to me because it features a theme that reminds me of the delicate vinery of the woods we visited.
The pride of the Welsh is evident to me in the Clogau Collection. Never compromising on detail or quality each piece is a work of art. I bought Steve Clogau cufflinks last year for his birthday. He bought me a bangle that I'd chosen from the range. His family also own several pieces.
All in all we are massive fans and I can't wait to present the show on Monday at 6pm with Julian Roberts, our Clogau expert. Julian has incredible knowledge to impart and heartfelt enthusiasm for the treasures we present. A joy.
I would love to hear from you. Are you familiar with the sites I've mentioned? Do you already own pieces from the Clogau Collection? Why is it special to you?
I hope to see you on Monday!
Love, Catherine x
