Dydd Gwyl Dewi / Saint David's Day

We didn't actually have the AS-level maths class last night because only one other student turned up. This was partly due to the fact that we'd had to change the night because G had to go to a meeting in Bangor on our usual Tuesday night.

Anyway, while we were waiting around in the construction department to see who would turn up, we discovered that they had all sorts of activities planned for today. Firstly it is World Book Day as well as Saint David's day, so there was a display of Welsh books I could browse while waiting. :) One by Bethan Gwanas looked interesting, called Gwrach y Gwyllt it seems to be based on a local legend about a witch. As I wrote a short story based on the same legend (didn't sell), I couldn't resist ordering it as soon as I got home. I'm interested to see what she has done with it.

Secondly, they were doing their own version of Gareth Malone's "Choir" project by getting someone to come in and get the construction lads singing. They didn't do too badly. Here they are on Youtube singing the Welsh national anthem.
