Yet more of those Humans of Cardiff

humans of cardiff

The Humans of Cardiff project that Wales Online are running has been posting some lovely pics of Cardiff residents out and about in the city. Here are some of my recent favs!

“I’m a nanny. I’m really passionate about bringing up children, nurturing their soul and their creativity, bringing up the next generation properly, with love, care, you know, not being stuck in front of a TV.”

“We’ve known each other for 13 years and like to live life to the full. We would advise each other to never change.”

“My earliest memory is looking at Sydney Harbour Bridge.”

“In my childhood I had a fear of darkness. Not any more but I have bad memories of darkness. I was left home alone when I was a little girl and I was scared a lot, you know, just for a couple of minutes. It was nothing serious, but it left something.”

“I’ve lived in Cardiff for eight years. I love the people. The local police always come and visit me because they love me. They come over for tea.”

“I’ve always wanted to jump out of a plane! I’m the least athletic or sporty person ever, but I think it would be quite freeing.”

“I’ve got little Cavalier dogs that I rescue. I’ve got one called Rosie and she adores feathers. She’ll play with these for hours.”

“I’ve played football with John Hartson.”

“My old man lives in America, but he’s back next week. We haven’t been together in Cardiff since 2009.”

“This is my nephew. He makes you laugh, he makes you smile. If he wakes you up at six or seven in the morning, that’s fine, I’m more than happy for him to do so. He’s the light of our world… and I hope he doesn’t grow up.”

“The biggest struggle I had to go through was my nan dying. I’m still grieving about that now. My life has got pretty rough since then as well. My stepdad became ill, he had to have a triple bypass and a kidney transplant. He’s still rough, he’s on tablets but hopefully soon he’ll be able to get back into work.”

“Back in the eighties the Hell’s Angels used to run the fly posting and they used to do it through violence. “And then all the hippies started to hit back and, you know, got rid of them. “Then a lot of councils started legalising it and actually making a profit on it. “So, you know, none of us have to run around being chased by coppers anymore.”

“I was standing on a crate trying to paint a little corner and I fell backwards, went to protect myself from falling, fractured my finger and tore some of the ligaments in my shoulder. “But it’s okay ‘cos we’ve got cricket now for the next six weeks. I’m an avid cricket fan so it gives me an excuse in front of my missus to say ‘Aww, I’ll watch the cricket then’.”

“I’ve been coming to this park for the best part of 65 years. I used to come here when the Taff swim was on. I used to come down and watch it. I never understood how they didn’t catch anything, it wasn’t the cleanest water in those days.”
