This is a description of the day to day mundane life of a Cornish speaking journalist working in Kernow.

Saturday alone in the newsroom

Isn't it great being a journalist in the middle of a happening world!?! Here I am reporting on the twists and turns of life in Devon and Cornwall. However, the police press service is dull, nothing happening at sea, and just me, the on-air presenter, and the chief exec in the station. I suppose that is what you get for having another big national story on your patch earlier in the week (when I was off). You know... the Lynx helicopter which crashed in the sea off the Lizard killing 4 aircrew.

Thursday was good for me though. I was on Cornwall's selection panel for the Celtic Film and Television Festival. We had a shortlist of a few good films, several that had high hopes... but failed. Also, there were several diabolical ones. Anyway, it meant good pay on what was essentially my day off.

Today's phrase in Cornish:

Nadelik Lowen ha blydhen nowydh da = Happy Christmas and a good new year.

Why not do your blog in Cornish? If you want to here's:

P.S. Nadelik Lowen ha blydhen nowydh da = "Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Hapus" in Welsh.
