Today I am introducing you to fellow blogger and the creator of some wonderful short stories: Hugh Roberts. Welcome Hugh, thanks for participating here. First up, please tell us about your connection to Wales. img_34831
I was born in Wales and spent the first 17 years of my life living there.  Most of my family still live there.  I’m currently living in Hove, East Sussex, with my partner John and Toby, our Welsh Cardigan Corgi.  We have a holiday home in Abergavenny in Monmouthshire and are in the process of planning to return to live in Wales once we sell our house here in Hove.  We’re planning on purchasing another home near the Welsh coastline around The Mumbles area.
Tell us a little about yourself as writer and person

  1. Lovely interview, Hugh. Best wishes on finding the perfect home in Wales for your move back home. My father’s family are Welsh. Thank you for your follow on FG. I appreciate you adding my back to your circle. ❤ WG

    1. Thank you WG. Yes, your blog was another casualty of some gremlins I’ve had here on Hugh’s Views and News. I thought I had found them all, but it seems not.

      Pleased to say that since doing the Interview we have now found our new home. It won’t be ready until March/April and we have sold our house in Brighton and Hove. The new owners want to be in by end of January, so we’ll be moving into our holiday home here in Abergavenny until new house is ready to take us. 🙂 Good to hear there is some Welsh blood in your family.

      1. Glad to hear that everything has worked out for you with both the buying and the selling! What a wonderful way to begin a new year. So you’ll soon be on permanent ‘holiday’ until your new home is ready for you? Yes, my Welsh relations are artists. I didn’t inherit the skill, only the admiration for it 😉 Glad you have your techno gremlins eradicated and peace restored to the HN&V kingdom! Best, e

    1. Thank you Riley.

      Sometimes the way my name is spelt can give away that I am not Welsh. If it had been spelt the welsh way, ‘Huw’, then I think almost certainly everyone would know that I was Welsh. Apparently, I had a Scottish Grandfather called Hugh, so I blame him. 🙂

    1. With a name like ‘Jones’ I thought you may have had Welsh family, Helen. Hopefully, you’re able to visit the homeland often? We are currently in Wales and are here until Jan 6th. It really does seem like a different way of life down here and I’m looking forward to the end of January when we will move here permanently.

      1. Yes, my father’s from Cardiff and my mother’s mother is from North Wales, so many of my childhood holidays were spent there. We still go back fairly often, though my dream would be to live there one day, somewhere in the mountains with a view to the sea 🙂 My next Ambeth book is set there as well, so it was a pleasure writing about it. Lucky you getting to move there next month, hope it goes really well for you.
