The Welsh lessons were very useful but I have now stopped as they were mostly conversation and I have more need of writing. Also thay took up so much time that there was never enough time for writing. However, in the end I managed to write all the Filigree Sheepdog Stories and also to translate to Welsh 'AND THEREBY HANGS A TALE'. a good friend in the market qhol was born and brought up locally has been correcting and improving my Welsh and the Welsh text is now ready. The biggest problem was that I spent so much time commuting to hospital and nursing home that Dai has finished the Welsh corrections but I have not caught up. I was busy illustrating the Filigree book and had so much difficulty trying to paint left handed that I got whisked off to hospital before they were finished and most are still sitting on my desk in the study. At the same time as trying to do the illustrations I was trying to remember how to used Serif to format the book for the printers. I want to format the Welsh version of Teifi Dog's memoirs and get it printed and also format FILIGREE ans send off a trial version to see what it would cost with colour pictures. Meanwhile my brain is simply not working properly. I suppose at last both books will be done and I can then start on the Welsh version of ANTURIAU CI-DEFAID FFILIGRI, Any time now I shall be in the hospital in Liverpool getting the arm fixed.. I do hope it will be done soon as it is very painful and not conducive to typing.
