Off to the land of dragons!

April 30, 2008

The day after he arrived, we were off for the weekend!  We had to take care of some family stuff in Wales, so we’d decided to spend a few days extra there and make it a short break.  although he wasn’t looking forward to more travelling, I promised Amigito that this time he’d be able to move around and wouldn’t be in an envelope 😀

Here he is chatting with the driver, Owen’s sister:

He was most amused by the Welsh for monkey, which is pronounced the same, but spelt very differently! (w = oo in Welsh, there’s no k and y is a vowel and more of an ‘i’ sound)

It's me!


First Day

Amigito arrived very early, so early I’d not even actually got up… I said he could help me make breakfast, but he wanted to munch on sweets:

Breakfast? Nah, sweets!

I managed to convince him it was a bad idea, so he snuggled into my new yummy yarn instead!

yum, yarn!

I eventually got him into the kitchen, where I had to explain what potato farls are (Irish potato cakes) :

Potato what??
