Miss Rhondda Cynon Taf

I'm down in Wales and off the grid today so I am teeing this up on Friday.

In days when books like Bred of Heaven: One man's quest to reclaim his Welsh roots are being published:
Jasper Rees has always wanted to be Welsh. But despite Welsh grandparents (and a Welsh surname) he is an Englishman: by birth, upbringing and temperament. In this singular, hilarious love letter to a glorious country so often misunderstood, Rees sets out to achieve his goal of becoming a Welshman by learning to sing, play, work, worship, think - and above all, speak - like one.
