Living in the land of cow bells

I moved to sunny Zug in May from a not so sunny Wales and I can say it feels like home from home. We have also lived in the Netherlands, which I loved because the flowers were so cheap!

The other half (a forum veteran) has been nagging me to join EF so I have finally given in. Going by the number of posts per day he has, it seems like a good place to come to pass the time at work

So, in no particular order: I like taking photographs, hunting for vintage things in the brockenhaus, flowers, attempting to bake and forcing people to eat it, eating cheese and drinking wine.

I look forward to officially being a part of EF and promise not to be as annoying as him indoors

Welcome to the forum... I thought he made you up.

Or maybe it's just him pretending to be you....

I dunno... I'm confused....

Re: Living in the land of cow bells

Welcome to the carnage! Finally!!!!

I hope you enjoy this place as much as I do. There is no wonder why I'm the size of a small truck recently.

I feel it maybe time to drag other EF'ers over to share in the cooking experience!

Hey I'm not annoying!

Whoa! And have us miss out on even more freakin' interspousal frolicking?

This place almost feels like a "he said, she said" notice board for certain EF couples who can't be bothered to invest in Post It notes for their refrigerator doors.

Oh yeah, and welcome to CwtchyCoo who clearly has issues in further abusing the post-Latin language with a crazy sounding user name!

Quick true nothing better than airing the dirty laundry for the EF vultures to pick over.

Haha yes well she's in Baar and I'm in Zurich at work and FB was sooo yesterday...

Cwtch = welsh my friend!

Snuggling and cuddling and loving and protecting and safeguarding and claiming, all rolled into one. There is an element of intimacy, earnestness and ownership in this Welsh word (recently adopted into the OED) that the closest English equivalents, "cuddle", "snuggle" and "hug" lack.

A cwtch creates a private safe place in a room or in two peoples hearts. Cwtching is strong affection made manifest and can apply to lovers, or a parent and child. It is also possible to give a respected associate a non-romantic cwtch. In that scenario, a cwtch would be a heartfelt hug.
Here are some examples from "Talk Tidy: The Online Home of Wenglish" http://www.talktidy.com/

Cwtch

A much loved and much used local word having a number of uses:

(a) The coal cwtch, or the cwtch under the stairs/cwtch dan star - a storage place: derived from the Welsh 'cwt'.

(b) To keep concealed; "Keep that cwtched by there now - don't want anybody to see it... "

(c) Lie down, as in the order to a dog - "Go (and find your) cwtch!"

(d) To be fondled and snuggled up in an especially loving way "Cwtch up to your mam now". A child nursed "Welsh fashion is well and truly being 'cwtched'

(e) To warn off (now seemingly obsolete in local usage); "Bar cwtch, bar cwtch, don't come to my cwtch" A warning issued by children to others when out blackberry picking.


I'm mopping up the vomitus as we speak... Although I did think the Relation to Cuckoo was quite clever.
