St.Davids day!

Yay, it’s St.Davids day!  After living in Wales since 2000, I have developed a real welsh pride. Welsh cakes have become a staple in my diet and I look forward to the spring when all the daffodils pop up and of course I support the welsh rugby team! 

So this year not being in Wales for the St.Davids weekend is a funny one, especially as I don't get to join in the cawl trail around Saundersfoot village. All the cafes and pubs in the village make up a big pot of cawl and everyone takes a small bowl and walks around the village testing all the different cawls and scoring them (along with washing them down with a few cheeky pints!) Lets just say the scores at the end of the trail are always higher!

Yummy welsh cakes...

I would love to learn the welsh language and bring up kids in the future to be bilingual. I think it is important that children are introduced to different languages young, as it then becomes part of their daily routine and a game. As teenagers learning third languages at school it is then never an issue. If I wasn’t dyslexic I would have loved to learn more languages, but saying that I managed to get my head around basic Vietnamese while working there.

Look at this fab daffodil in Cardiff, Bute Park...

This fabulous sculpture was made by Susan Jones and is constructed out of wicker and recycled steel. It stands in Bute Park, Cardiff and welcomes all the visitors to the RHS flower show. Its stands a proud 11 feet high and 4 feet wide, and is being used to raise funds for the charity. It's always nice to see public art supporting the community for great causes. 

Beautiful daffodil field, I love yellow fields they are always so happy.

A quick doodle of mine, inspired by the picture above.

Happy St.Davids Day!
