Happy St David's Day

Happy St David's Day to everyone but specially to so many wonderful friends from Wales who have been part of my life for years.

 Way back when, childhood family holidays were spent in Trearddur Bay in Anglesey where my Irish aunt came across on the ferry to Holyhead to join us.

 Then I spent five years in Aberystwyth at the University of Wales. Most importantly, I met my husband there. And although we moved away to live in Lincolnshire, our connections with Wales have stayed strong. We have friends and writing connections with this beautiful country that have grown and developed over years of attending and teaching at  Writers Holidays. (I've just finished teaching at the latest Fishguard Weekend and can't wait to go back for the next one.) 

And today, appropriately, one of my first ever Fishguard students who has moved on to being a multi-published author, Rachael Thomas is celebrating the publication of her latest book today. (She also has a special spring giveaway so why not check out her Facebook page for a chance to win.)
So it's no wonder that Wales and the Welsh have a very special place in my heart.
Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus to you all.
