Hapy St David's Day - Dydd Gwyl Dewi San - 1st March 2015

Iechyd Da and a Happy St David’s Day /Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sa to you all!  I’m seeing the day in with a fairly sizeable hangover, with extra drinking encouraged by yesterday’s fabulous win over France in the Six Nations.

Someone asked me a while ago what a Welsh accent sounded like. Here’s my reply:

What exactly does a Welsh accent sound like? Like Richard Burton. Like the Treorchy Male Voice Choir. Like butter across a freshly baked Welsh cake. Like Slack Blodwyn from Tiger Bay after six pints of SA. Like a warm summer breeze on the slopes of Snowdon. Like Shirley on a Vegas encore. Like Tom’s Green Green Grass. Like the sound of the onion bag bulging as Cardiff surge into the FA Cup Final.
