Dydd Santes Dwynwen

The day started well. Before doing the 9.00 a.m. Skype chat with my Australian friend I hd already been into town to buy bread and milk. After the call I did a load of laundry and made a pot of soup that will do couple of lunches.

The afternoon was also successful, but felt more of a struggle. My computer has been running rather slow recently, so I attempted to improve matters. I emptied 6971 files out of the recycle bin and started uninstalling programs that I'm no longer using. Because the computer was running slow, this took rather a long time. I also had to consult my husband about which ones related to the courses we taught a few years ago and which are now surplus to requirements. The process involved a few restarts and there are still a few more programs I can get rid of, but it was time for dinner, so I stopped.

When I nipped into town this morning, I noticed this shop window.


If you're thinking this romantic window is a little early for Valentines Day, it's because in Wales we celebrate Dydd Santes Dwynwen on 25 January.
