Happy St. David's Day!

Happy St. David's Day!

In Wales, we celebrate our patron saint, St. David, on the first of March....

The children dress up in their Welsh costumes, traditionally the boys used to wear little suits, but now it tends to be Welsh rugby shirts and little girls dress up in traditional welsh costumes, with shawls and black bonnets with lace trim.


I have busied myself like a good Welsh lady making welsh cakes for tea....yum!


And on request, I crocheted a leek for biggest boy (after a few attempts on trying to work out what exactly a crocheted leek would look like if I saw one) and a couple of daffodils for the other two,  middle said that it was far to girly, so I wore his to the school Eisteddfod (pronounced eye-stethe-fod) this afternoon. 

An eisteddfod is normally a performance of music and dance, where people show off their talents....and what a talented bunch of children there were today at middle's school....a real delight.


So, I know what you're thinking, what would the model Welsh family being having for their supper this evening?......well, curry of course!

  2. Rofl Curry !! love it.
    Oh my gosh how cute are your little uns..., course the bigger un prob would hate being called cute now, mine would die of which only makes me do it more.
    Love the leek, that is so cool and that would be the emblem I'd choose to wear, course I'd not have the foggiest notion on how to make it. I love the colour you used for your daffodils and those Welsh Cakes look yum !

  8. Yes, the recipe please....

    Happy St. David's Day to you! I had never heard of it until another commenter mentioned it in response to my daffodil post the other day - now I understand your proprietary attitude. :)

    Your boys are adorable and I quite like the crochet daff and leek.
