Every Friday, before coming home, I have a Welsh lesson where I "help" a Year 7 and I thought that I would take advantage of my newly learned skills to introduce you to my inspired Christmas gift from Jack...(I apologise now to real Welsh speakers for any obvious mistakes, please be kind!)
"Am Nadolig ces i ukelele glas newydd. Dwi'n hoffi mae ukelele glas achos maen fedigedig. Mae ukelele efo fi o'r enu Hector..."
This sort of translates as : "For Christmas I got a new blue ukelele. I like my ukelele because it is brilliant. My ukelele is called Hector..."
As you can see I am not going to win prizes for my fluid Welsh speaking and as yet I haven't a clue how to make a sound with Hector...but I am trying with both and who knows maybe one day I will be able to play like this...
....but in Welsh!
#The Lisa Hannigan album 'passenger' was also a gift for Christmas and it is wonderful!#
