Dydd Gŵl Dewi hapus, family tree, welcome to spring and let’s go fishing

Happy St. David’s Day or Dydd Gŵl Dewi hapus in Welsh.

I’m proud to be English – I was born in Staffordshire to English parents – but equally proud of my Welsh roots.

Going back to both my paternal and maternal grandparents, that’s where the links begin and with my grandmothers to be precise.

I can remember my maternal grandmother telling me about her mom, Annie Edwards, who brought a Bible with her when she arrived from Wales.

My nan kept it in a glass cabinet and she told me she read it every day.
