Dydd Gwyl Dewi - St David's Day

Today is St David's Day, patron saint of Wales. Not as well known as St Patrick but equally well loved by Welsh nationals all over the world !! Daffodils and leeks will certainly be the order of the day , either being worn or eaten ! For all ex-pats like myself, this has got to be the worse day for 'hiraeth' , which loosely translates into being home-sick, BUT means a whole lot more if you are Welsh.

A few of us will be getting together here tonight to crack a couple or three bottles of wine , listen to our Welsh CDs with lumps in our throats (!) and hopefully not do too much 'crying in our beer'!!!

Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant hapus i bob !!!
