Good to see you today @johnwilliams_6 & @bethan-williams-1 and thanks as usual for your never-ending patience.
I must have misunderstood what you said about the walk - I thought you were telling me it was next weekend rather than this one, but it seems it is on the 20th after all. Whatever I said in reply to that must have made even less sense than usual! Anyway I’m definitely planning to be asleep this Sunday, but I do hope to be able to attend one of the extra-curricular activities sooner or later…


#1603

Glad you could make it @chris-roberts and diolch i ti a @bethan-williams-1 am y sgwrs heddiw
Perhaps what we were saying about the walk this weekend might have got confused with what we were saying about the weekend when the clocks go back? :slightly_smiling_face:

Perhaps next month’s walk on Sat 9 November?


#1604

Aha that may well have been the problem - I definitely got hold of the wrong end of the stick there anyway.

I’ll be having fun on an intensive Spanish weekend on the 9th :grin: but I’m sure I’ll make it along to a future walk at some point.


#1605

I think i may have been stupid in just looking at location map
and thinking modern art cafe, been there before
so that’s where i went today.
On the plus side there were three ladies speaking Swedish .

Cheers J.P.


#1606

Oh, that’s a pity - and we were just next door :disappointed:
Did you get to pick up any Swedish words from thise three?
Hwyl, John

I will be at cafe Bap this morning! I am unable to come for cinio Nadolig on 17 Dec now. I wasn’t able to change this on the poll! Hwyl Bethan


#1609

See you there @bethan-williams-1
Hwyl, John
PS It seems to make changes to the Doodle poll the mouse needs to hover on the right hand side of the column with your name when a blue pen icon should appear which you click on, make the necessary change and then click on ‘Update’ - Doodle has allowed me to do this for you as I was the one who set up the poll :slightly_smiling_face:
PPS Still hoping for more contributions to the poll https://doodle.com/poll/xwabzprxdqgd9mus @RichardBuck @cat-1 @rebecca @rachaelseculer-faber @jane-18 @mouselovinlady @thomasd @claireesau @chris-roberts ! :slightly_smiling_face:


#1610

Thanks for the poll reminder, I’ll have to double check dates with my husband but I think I’m fairly free :slightly_smiling_face: I was hoping to make this morning but got my times wrong, I’ve not been able to log in from my phone for a while for some reason but seems to be sorted now!
I will come on Friday (last time I said that I ended up sleeping for most of the day :woman_facepalming: We’d had some bad nights with the baby…)


#1611

I was intending to make an even-later-than-usual appearance today but it’s not to be (dydy o ddim i fod?). I can’t make it on Fri either but am definitely intending to have my act together for next Wednesday…


#1612

Diolch John a Sue am scwrs dda heddiw. Thank you also John for explaining Doodle Poll and updating it for me! Hwyl Bethan


#1613

Hi @bethan-williams-1
O’n ni’n siarad am badelli ffrio. Wel, es i i’r siop “Home” yn Westgate, a wnes i brynu dwy badelli ffrio, un fawr ac un fach, yn y sêls. Roedd gostyngiad o 70 y cant.

We were talking about frying pans. Well, I went to the “Home” shop in Westgate and I bought two frying pans, one big and one small, in the sales. There was a reduction of 70%. (I think that I said “frying tent” rather than “frying pan”. With luck you understood.)

Sorry, I can’t come on Wednesday or Friday next week as my daughter is visiting.

Sue


#1614

Rwy ti’n wedi gwneud yn dda iawn! Gwych! Mwynhau amweld dy ferch Sue. Mwynhau coginio yn yr dwy badelli frio newydd hefyd!! Bethan

At last Cymdeithas Dafydd ap Gwilym (Ox Univ Welsh Soc) have put up the MIchaelmas term card (click on the image to enlarge it). A couple of events at least might be of interest: Caarwyn Jones (Mark Drakeford’s predecessor as Welsh PM) on 14 Nov and, of course, the Welsh carol service on 4 Dec


#1616

I’m sorry I won’t be able to make it to RB today. Hwyl Bethan

Helo pawb - for those of you who have ffurnols/plantos/kids around on hanner tymor/half-term, this resource posted by Nia on Slack might perhaps prove useful: Hwyl Hydref 2017.pdf (1.4 MB)

#1618

  • Wednesday morning, 30 Oct from 10:30am in Café Bap, Abingdon Rd

Hwyl, John
