Hi Liz:

I think it’s great that everyone knows that “Best Beloved” is your husband. That’s the best birthday present!

If you asked that in America people would probably think you’re talking about a famous person. Is that a Brit thing or is it romance speak?


Remember: Swansea vs Reading, Monday, 3:00 pm (9 am Tulsa time). Good luck Swans! Next year in the Premier!

BTW: I was ‘driving’ around what I think is your neck of the woods and I saw a sign for “Gelli Aur” or “Golden Grove” Country Park. Do you live anywhere near there?

Happy Birthday to your DH!

Hi Vince

"Best beloved" is a term from Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories - How The Whale Got His Throat begins "In the sea, once upon a time, O my Best Beloved, there was a Whale..." The book is also famous for "Roll down - roll down to Rio..."

And yes, Gelli Aur is a couple of miles down the road from our village. There is a beautiful arboretum there, but most of the land is now used as an agricultural college. The views from there are stunning. It also gets a mention in Under Milk Wood.

Oh, and yes, Go, Swans!

Thanks, Nell and Caroline. The real cake was pretty damn good, I have to say!

Apologies for the multiple posts but every time I filled in the word verification and pressed publish it claimed I hadn't entered the word right!

But, what the heck - I do wish your DH a happy birthday X 6!
