    My rescue Saint Bernard, she’s a heart as big as the Welsh mountains, more kisses than there are raindrops in Wales and the kindest soul you could ever meet!

    Whether overlooking the flamingo filled salt lakes of Torrevieja or driving through the flame red maples of Vermont, my soul is stirred when I drink loose leafed tea, sweet, not too much milk and strong – just like my mamgu (grandmother) used to make for me as a child.

      The views. the teas, the lakes. . . I’ll have to pass on the sweet, unless we’re talking Mamgu, then sweet is what it’s all about. Diolch. Great to get some tea news from so far away.

      We’re really close to the coast here in Mumbles so we know what you’re talking about. Although i don’t mind a bit of valley life or mountain life for that matter. Then there’re the lakes, oh and the beautiful marinas not to mention the bustle of the cities.
      It’s a tough choice but someone has to make it!

    The clear skies, the unspoiled countryside, the deserted beaches, the waves breaking on the shore, the sheep filled hillsides, the abundant wildlife, the friendly people and the green, green grass of home. All these things stir my soul and help me feel nearer to my homeland now that I live far away.

      Home is never too far away if it’s in the heart, and it’s even closer if you keep a pack of Welsh Brew in the cupboard. In fact you make it sound so lovely I just may have to take a week off to enjoy such an idylic country.

      With a house full of girls I know just what you mean. I must admit though, there’s usually more than one biscuit involved and it’s arguably more of passing storm that is interrupted rather than a calming moment. Wouldn’t change it for all the tea in China, and i do love my tea!

    Yesterday for the first time I took my grandchildren up onto the roof of Abingdon Museum, which is now open to the public. It’s in the centre of our town and for the first time in my life I saw a panoramic view of my life. From where I lived from one week old in one direction to where my mother went to school in another. It stirred my soul to be able to tell the grand kids lots of family stories about our home town. This would never have happened if we hadn’t gone up on that roof as made all those memories come flooding back

    The smell of my dad’s factory where my partner now works. It’s a mixture of oil and paint and hard work and is wonderful. Sunshine shining through my living room windows and warming my spot on the sofa. My son every day no matter what he does, watching him grow and learn and develop and evolve is the most magnificent feeling I have ever experienced.

    What stirs my soul is seeing people homeless. I just can’t bear it so when I go up to London I take pile of 50 pences and £1 coins to make sure I give to everyone I see. On Saturday, we went to Pizza Express and I gave our leftover pizza (quite a lot) to them also. I also try to take warm coats. I feel so sorry for them..

    The smell of Yardley Freesia always gives me a sharp intake of breath as my gran wore it and she was a mum to me also. I miss her an awful lot but Freesias bring her back to me..

    Dictionary definition of the term: ‘soul-stirring’ – ‘arousing excitement and enthusiasm; uplifting’

    For me, I would sum it up as that feeling, when, after a day of outdoor adventure, rosy cheeked, windblown and utterly exhausted, you open your front door, and head for that cosy seat, next to the crackling fire, and you share a delicious pot of tea with your nearest and dearest, and recount your exploits, knowing that, that was a good day well spent, and an even better evening to come.

    A storming fly-half

    Or the sound of a choir
    voices raised to the sky,
    it can strengthen the spirit,
    would my heart fortify.

    A But granny’s fruit cake

    Watching my 5 year old daughter take her big brother who is 7 years old by the hand during playtime at school and walk with him because he is behaving in an odd or challenging way which the other children dont understand like she does as he has Autistic Spectrum Disorder. This sometimes makes it not possible for her to enjoy playing with the children in her own class group however she doesnt complain ever and makes sure her brother is ok before anything else. she has such a kind and caring nature its heart melting but also it is a lot of responsibility for a little girl and winning this prize would be a wonderful way of treating both her and her brother. x

    Watching my children singing Christmas carols and doing funny nativity plays at school each year; seeing the years fly by before my eyes as they grow taller and taller. Special Christmas’s with loved ones giggling and sharing surprises and thinking of all the darling loved ones who have come before us and now left us with a warm glow of remembrance and gratitude – always stirs my soul.

    Waking just before sunrise and standing on the top of the beach watching the sea change colour as the sun rises and the world wakes slowly and magically once again……… the power of this never fails to remind me how small I am in the scheme of things but also of how necessary I am when I treat the world with the respect it deserves!

    When you see a blue lighted ambulance pull up to your neighbors house across the street (not wanting to pry or even ignore their troubling times). I waited until the family came home (after a night stay at the hospital) to take over 1 pint of milk. I knocked on the door and said ‘I saw that you had blue lights outside your house last night, I didn’t want to ignore nor pry, however it is very British to make a cuppa in a crisis; just in case you’ve run out, here is some more’. It turned out their little boy was rushed to hospital after coughing up blood, and they had ran out milk. The mother said to me she hadn’t seen such kindness on this street was deeply humbled that someone took time to care. Giving in a time of vulnerable times #stirringstuff #timeformiracles #christmasspirit p.s. the boy was fine, he was playing on his xbox when he got home

    My soul is now in a place where it no longer matters if I can’t sleep….. I simply stop trying and allow my body to dictate what it wants. It could be something as simple as enjoying a hot milky drink while I write letters to friends I haven’t seen for years…….or I might sit outside wrapped up in a blanket on my patio barefooted waiting for that miraculous moment that so many people miss…….. a simple sun rise! Or best of all a chance to relax and review my wonderful family and to think of all the treasured times we spend together and of course there are the memories of those who are no longer with me. I can shed a tear so easily for any one of them but I like think they would prefer me to smile and to know I am contented and at peace with myself……. so I smile and thank them for giving me my life!

    Rugby… there is nothing, and I mean, nothing, like Rugby. There’s something almost magical about it. You’re locked in a battle, a dirty, painful, violent battle. You’re fighting alongside your mates, you’re probably fighting your mates too! The nerves before kickoff vanish when the ball is kicked, when it drops into your arms, when you tuck it away and canter off into the unknown. The first scrum, the first line out. It’s fabulous! and when it’s all over, and you’re knackered, and sweaty, and filthy, and everything aches. You dive into a red hot bath, with your mates. You have a laugh, you enjoy a game of “what’s bleeding” and then you go and have a pint, in front of a roaring fire, with your mates.
    I have two little boys, they’ll find their own way into the game, if at all, and I sincerely hope they do. There’s nothing like it, and I absolutely love it with every ounce of my being. Does it stir my soul? Yes, it bloody well does.

    We have had a bit of a tough year after I suffered so injuries after having a bump in my car he has kept my spirits up and cared for me.
    I would use this break for our honeymoon as we are saving for our first home. It sounds amazing and as Jason comes from Wales it would be great for him to be able to show me the sights he so loves with all his heart but doesn’t get to see much as we are now both living in Hampshire

    Being outdoors stirs my soul, I went camping for the first time in years this year and I’d forgotten how much fun it is. It chucked it down with rain just as we started the barbeque up but that didn’t matter at all, I just grabbed an umbrella and carried on cooking the sausages we’d bought from a local farm shop, they were delicious! I plan to go lots of times next year, hopefully to around Abersoch which has the most beautiful beach.

    My newfoundland Nessa. It amazes me that after 5 years of abuse she is still so trusting and so full of love. We rescued her a year ago. When she came to us she was covered in wounds, had infections, was totally untrained and had been attacked by dogs. She had never been walked and didn’t know how to play. Even after all of that she is the most loving dog ever and so badly wants to please you. She brings you her teddy to share if you are sad becuase it makes her happy so she thinks it will make you happy. She has learnt to trust other dogs again and just wants to play. But her favourite thing in the world is to cuddle. She is currently cuddled up on the settee with me. She makes me so happy xx
