It’s Saturday, the seventeenth day of February. The weather was good enough for working in the garden. We needed to put up some extra fencing for preventing the dog escaping into the wood. It is naughty. It chased the cat into the wood. The cat can climb trees and hide itself in some bush - but the dog became tangled in the brambles. I had to rescue it – and was scratched by prickles and thorns.

I have looked after two grandchildren today (as well as two dogs, two cats and two rabbits). I am more than tired, I am exhausted! I do not have enough energy to write many words.

Keniver bledhen thew Gool Valentin an pajerdegves dedh a vis Whevrel. It’s Wednesday, the 14th day of February. It’s a special day for two reasons. First reason? Do you have a sweetheart? You can send a card or buy a present, perhaps flowers. Why? Because it’s Valentine’s Day. Saint Valentine of Rome is the patron saint of lovers. He was a priest in a temple. He was martyred (beheaded) in the third century for helping Christian couples to marry. Every year Valentine’s Day is on the 14th day of February. Nessa reson: hedhyw thew an kensa dedh a Corawys.

Tuesday, 13th February. The forecast was right. There was plenty of rain in the night - it has made a lake outside our front door. We’ll need to go out through the side door or the back door.
