Nadolig Llawen Happy Christmas to all our LlandafPost readers!

December 25, 2016 - Author: melyn

Unknown office party crew singing upstairs in Porro, Llandaf, Cardiff. This was a national anthem sing-off with no conclusive winner. Hen Wlad fy Nhadau was belted out with true Land of Song Aplomb. The Inuits sang the Canadian National Anthem in English and then said, that was English, now here’s some Inuit singing. They sang a congregational song, followed by a truly magic moment which was a harmonic, throat-singing duet by two of the party. The Welsh office party put forward a great singer who sang an unaccompanied solo of the Welsh folk song which contains the lovely couplet: “Mae’n well gen i nag aur y byd dy weld yn gorwedd yn dy grud” – I’d rather see you lying in your cot than have all the gold in the world. And that’s as good a Christmas message as we can hope for at the end of this year which has seen such suffering in Syria.

Photos from today’s Insole Christmas Market

December 17, 2016 - Author: melyn

The redeveloped Insole Court in Llandaf Cardiff brings an old-world feel of the Cotswolds or Cheshire to the Welsh capital. The Christmas Market there today really helped to increase the quota of Christmas spirit. There was delicious lentil soup, Italian leather handbags and woven scarves, original pastels by local artists and lots of Festive hustle and bustle. Here are some photos I took:

Llandaf 2016 Christmas Lights switch-on

November 30, 2016 - Author: melyn

I took all of the images except for the last just before the crowds arrived. Whoville display outside Hair Flair was a highlight this year and the Grinch and friends’ costumes were fabulous.

K2 all-morning breakfast

October 28, 2016 - Author: melyn

You can eat breakfast until noon at K2. We like sitting outside with our dog when it’s dry and not too cold. The bacon baguette’s extra good and, if you ask nicely, they can cook it nice and crispy for you. (Hmmm, what time is it now?)
