It was the usual Welsh informal chat this morning via the Skype group. It's been a great way to keep in touch with the local gossip as well as excellent language practice.

Today's subjects included: cooking and eating offal, baking bread, mushrooms (ways of cooking and whether we had ever picked and eaten wild ones), how to sprout mung beans, what we'd been watching on TV, when we're likely to get the covid jab, and other things I've now forgotten.

One piece of news that was a little worrying is that a local garage with attached shop and mini-cafe has had to close due to one of the staff catching covid. They seem to be fine and as long as they haven't given it to any other staff members the garage will be open again in a few day's time, but it was a reminder that though levels of the virus are very low here, covid is not nonexistent.
