Welsh progress update

I went to the Welsh conversation group on Wednesday and we had a good chat. I'm also just about keeping on target with the book reading (Pwnc Llosg) but I'm doing fine with my goal of spending at least 3/4 of an hour each day doing a variety of activities to improve my Welsh.

And I felt really pleased with myself today because I went into the butchers and bought two lamb burgers entirely in Welsh! Yay!

Supermarkets are no good for practising speaking, but the butchers is the old fashioned type of shop where you have to ask for what you want. I'm hoping the burgers are nice because for various reasons, I would like to start buying my meat there instead of the Co-op. It's not that there's anything wrong with the Co-op's meat, but there is less and less choice in actual, unmessed about with meat these days. The ready meals and meat soaked in marinade or covered in barbecue seasoning are pushing out the actual plain meat and, what is more, they come in so much packaging. The burgers from the butcher just came in a thin plastic bag, not in a substantial plastic tray.
