I thought I'd kick this off. I'm delighted to be starting training at Cardiff this year, who else is going to be joining me? :D

Hi

I have an offer too and am really excited to train at Cardiff! I'm from the area already so don't think I'll move before starting. I interviewed on Wednesday.

Look forward to meeting everyone!

Hi Rainbowcake! *waves*
I interviewed on the Wednesday too, were you there in the morning or afternoon?

I'm from the area although I live a bit further out now so will be commuting from the Monmouth area. Really looking forward to getting all the information through :D

Hello!

I'll be joining you in October! I interviewed Thursday morning. Didn't think I had done well enough to get on so feeling really shocked still- not sure it's sunk in.

I'll be moving from Plymouth with my partner and he will most likely be transferring to a branch of his work in Bristol, so currently trying to figure out where we can live. If anyone knows Cardiff and surrounding area and has advice I'd appreciate the help!

Hope everyone has a relaxed weekend planned to celebrate and enjoy the good news :)

Hi Kellie!

I think that's where we will be looking so thank you! I may well be asking for advice on different places nearer the time!

Hope you had a good weekend!

I'm hoping that it will be next week as the deadline for people to accept places is this Friday. I'm so keen to get the contracts and stuff now!

Hi both

I called because I didn't receive any emails back after i confirmed my place and they said they planned to send out everything after the 9th when everyone had confirmed, hope that alleviates some worry :)

Hi All!

I will also be joining the South Wales course in October! I actually already live in Cardiff, so any questions about South Wales living - let me know.

I interviewed on the Thursday morning too Katie - so we must have met!

Look forward to meeting you all, and congrats again on getting a place.

I was wearing a black flowery dress and black cardi with my hair up if that helps place me!
