Llyfrau Cymraeg / Welsh books

3/52 for the group 52 of 2012

This week's theme is: My passion

I actually find this theme very difficult. I'm British, for heaven's sake, and of a certain age and class and we don't reveal our passions -- unless it's football, of which I am not a fan! So, I've done my best, even though it makes me feel awkward and these books are my attempt to portray my love of Wales.

I wasn't born in Wales and I wasn't brought up here, but I visited for the first time when I was less than 1 year old and must have fallen under its spell. I spent many wonderful holidays on the North Wales coast and finally, as a young adult, I managed to move from England and have lived in Wales ever since.

I feel a strong attachment to the Welsh landscape and the people and in particular the language. I have been learning Welsh for years, but I finally feel that I'm making progress and these books therefore symbolise the language and culture and my love of my adopted country.
