Since the euphoria of the derby win, it's been a mixed bag of results for Cardiff City. After coolly dispatching Swansea, they travelled to Aston Villa the following weekend for a game that on paper at least was eminently winnable. Not so.
As a Welsh girl studying in Edinburgh, it is with a heavy heart that I hear the nationalistic cries for independence. You can't fool me SNP, with your White Papers and your shoddy economic policies. I've heard it all before, albeit in slightly Welsher accents.
This Sunday, Swansea travel to Cardiff for what promises to be one of the highlights of the Premier League season. And no, I'm not exaggerating. This will be the first time the two sides have ever clashed in top flight football, and neither will want to give up an inch to their arch-rivals and sworn enemy.
The only way the Women's game can be 'as good as the male game' is to treat it with the same respect rather than as a completely different sport. Of course the way the women play strategically is different, but it's still football!
In three years' time, the BBC Charter will be up for renewal. It is safe to say that this Charter renewal will be more significant than others for a number of reasons...
Any Cardiff City fans looking forward to lying back and basking in the glory of the Premier League has had a rude awakening these past few days. And there hasn't even been any football played. In what should be a time of quiet consolidation during the first international break of the season, the club has found its name written all over the back pages of the newspapers for all the wrong reasons. Again.
For lovers of British food or those just interested in the gastro-revolution that has taken place around the country in the last decade, the run up to Christmas is one of the best times for a foodie-themed weekend.
It is a disservice to Bevan's creation and a public outrage to the people of Wales that Labour can be so complacent with our NHS. What compounds this arrogance is that Labour has clearly learnt absolutely nothing from the Mid-Staffordshire debacle.
I am proposing a Welsh way forward. Plaid Cymru is not a party to shout "foul play" from the side-lines. The Party of Wales is determined to meet the aspirations of our people with alternatives. I've written to the UK Business Secretary calling on him to follow a precedent set in the Post Office Act of 1969. That legislation implemented far-reaching reforms, and within it, the UK Government surrendered its postal interests in the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, offering them to the governments of those territories.
Tracing family history always throws up stories because people make stories. It doesn't really matter that these people are related to you - I still maintain that - but mining your own family for stories is as good an option as any.
In a year's time, the people of Scotland will go to the polls not only to decide their own destiny but to decide the route we all take as a united country. The United Kingdom for Wales is simply too important to dismiss.
The victorious British and Irish Lions squad returned from Australia as heroes this summer, having secured a historic first series win in 17 years. But if they're not adequately looked after, that could be as good as it gets for the triumphant tourists.
As the Manic Street Preachers ready themselves to release their new album Rewind The Film, on September 16, I had the chance to catch up with bass player, lyricist and unofficial band spokesman Nicky Wire at BBC Radio 2 live in Hyde Park.
While World Cup qualification is arguably the most prominent thing in most Chilean and Welsh people's minds right now, the two countries have another topic of conversation in common: organ donation.
Summer is almost over, and the nights are looming ever nearer: when September rolls round, many of us are already seeking to escape the onslaught of a British autumn. But whether you're in the mood for a short city break, or fancy a longer, luxurious getaway, why not make the most of the September harvest while on holiday?
Since 2007 Puspa Shahi has lived in the UK presently in Wales in an army accommodation with her husband, Mr Kaushal, a Gurkha and two young children. The Nepali community in her area is quite close.
