When I was in school, St David's Day was a half-day - we all got the afternoon off, which was a definite reason for celebration as far as we were concerned. At the High School I attended, every other year we had a full-on Eisteddfod, with competitions in all sorts of activities (not just music and Welsh poetry) - art, needlework, public speaking, as well as just about everything on the curriculum. The half-holidays are no more, but the celebration of our culture continues.
So today, rather than my usual mucking-about-with-card-and-ink type of project, I'm sharing a digital scrapbook page I made a couple of years ago. The Welsh flag is the Red Dragon, and Rugby is a national obsession. And James Hook is one of my favourite Rugby players (even if he has left the Ospreys, sob, sob - but we still have Adam Jones!) Normal service will be resumed later, meanwhile, I'm off to make some cawl (lamb soup) like my Nan used to!
