The date of Dewi Sant's death is recorded as 1st March, but the year is uncertain - possibly 589. As his tearful monks prepared for his death, St David uttered these words: 'Brothers be ye constant. The yoke which with single mind ye have taken, bear ye to the end; and whatsoever ye have seen with me and heard, keep and fulfil' and as he died, 'Lords, brothers and sisters, be cheerful, keep the faith, and do those little things which ye have seen me do and heard me say.'
I will be wearing my daffodil pin and Nathan will be wearing his leek pin he received from my cousin in Wales. It arrived yesterday afternoon, just in time! She also sent him some sweets, which his brothers tried to get him to open and share. We'll have to see if they behave! Not sure if they'll be willing to wear a pin, although DH always does.
I know I wasn't a daffodil princess, but it does look like I'm in a field of yellow.
Nathan helped me
for about three minutes make some Welsh cakes.
I found a flower shaped cutter that I liked, so I used that instead of just a circular one. These turned out a little more crispy than usual, maybe because I had to wait to cook them while I took Nathan to Tae Kwon Do. Oh well, still yummy!
I thought about ordering this last year and didn't - now it's not for sale anymore. Has anyone in GB ever seen it?
And it wouldn't be St. David's Day without a picture of Tennessee sent from my Dad!
