She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

We are more than 160 km north of Swansea but my bro's vaping refill fell off the couch with a quiet "thdunk" too. :ahrr:
