We got a letter!
We were really excited today because we got a letter. Dewi and Rolly were really pleased because it had Welsh writing on it. They are both from Wales, although Rolly is from Cardiff and Dewi is from Snowdonia so we get a bit confused with the language.
We liked the letter because there was a dragon on the stamp. That meant it was from Wales. That's Cymru in their language. We are all learning North Welsh but we're not very good yet. It's very hard and when you live in England you don't hear much Welsh so you don't get much practice.
The letter was from our friend Llechi and his angel Mummy. He's the reason we want to learn Welsh because we want to talk to him in his language. He's a slate miner and he lives in a place called Blaenau Ffestiniog and he works at a mine called Llechwedd.
The card was for Samhain. That's Hallowe'en but it isn't Welsh it's an old magic word.
