As he was knocked off his bike I'm assuming he believes the other driver to be at fault BUT the insurers can't be sure who is to blame. This happened to me last year - it was my word vs his, and my...

I left teaching (age 25) and moved into community development, which included a large element of youth work. My organisation also employed a full-time youth worker (before the recession hit). Our job...

Baby Elizabeth was born on 04/09/14, weighing in at 5lb and 2oz. She was induced following a growth-check scan, and things happened pretty quickly! At 7am I was 2cm dilated and by 10.19am she was in...

I think (but I haven't been there, so can't be sure) that it's just a pub where you know you can get served in Welsh. It's an ex-pat meeting place, more than some tacky 'themed pub'.

Really?!? You don't really believe that, surely?
I thought engagement presents were only given at engagement parties. I certainly don't know anybody who has given or received one at any other time.
