Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!


Well, I thought I should at least put the title in Welsh as an acknowledgement of the fact that I have, shamefully, not opened a Welsh-related book for the last three weeks. With Keith, myself and Dad all being ill, other things have taken precedence and still are and when I am worried about things, I find it really difficult to focus on other things.
However, the three Musketeers that are Jayne, Simon and myself are hoping to meet up for our usual hour at the local Ramada today, drinking coffee and working frantically and committedly at our Welsh putting the world to rights. Well, you never know, one of these days, we may be able to put the world to rights in fluent Welsh at a pace slightly faster than our current two words a minute. Here's hoping!
In the meantime, the Christmas decorations have been put away, the stash of presents and Christmas food and drink has almost disappeared from the smallest bedroom, which can now be redesignated once again as my study.
This means, I am now completely without excuses for procrastination ....
Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i bawb! (Happy New Year, everyone.)

And a Happy New Year to you too Jenny. I don't think I could ever get the hang of Welsh. It starts to feel like you can understand what they are talking about before you realise that you haven't got a clue.

Yes crack on With the Welsh Jenny. You could get be an MP for Plaid Cymru! And HNY to you!

Well that's an interesting take on it, YP. Maybe it's because, in the south especially, they use a fair amount of 'Wenglish'. :)

Jennyta said...

You never know, YP. Would you vote for me?
