Things happen in threes!

Well what a great week I am having.

Firstly, while recovering from another hard session in the David Lloyd gym on Monday night, who should I find queuing behind me to get a shower but one of last Saturday’s Triple Crown rugby champions, Jamie Roberts!

Momentarily struck dumb I recovered my composure to utter what a wonderful weekend it had been for Welsh sport. We chatted for a while and I was struck by how well he conducted himself talking to anyone who approached him. What a super ambassador for Welsh rugby and Welsh sport.

Secondly, I was truly delighted to read in today’s Western Mail that Business Minister Edwina Hart has launched a £6 million fund to support the growth of microbusinesses.

How refreshing to see a practical response from the Welsh Government to the report published in January by the Micro Business Task and Finish Group, chaired by Institute of Directors director Robert Lloyd Griffiths.

At last it is being recognised how much of a difference supporting our 124,000 micro enterprises can make to the Welsh economy. Lets hope that this support will lead to new sustainable jobs in this important sector.

Thirdly, a delightful surprise to find that my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter are on their way to spend part of St David’s Day with us. Join the St David’s Day parade at 12.30 outside City Hall and you may well spot me with my brothers, David and Michael.

Diwrnod Dewi Sant Hapus – Happy St David’s Day!
