Yesterday’s post brought a surprise gift from Wales.
With it came two stories:
Ty Bach is Welsh for “little house” and refers to the dunny/longdrop/outhouse at the bottom of the yard.
Our wee bach in Hanmer is now going to have a new name 🙂
But I hope it doesn’t get too sh….ty about that!!!
Just in case it does I will have to carry my new bag to cheer it up ……..
I knew the Germans greeted each other with a firm handshake
and the French with a gentle kiss on each check,
and the maori’s hongi
while the Welsh cwtch …………. and I didn’t know that!!
What a fabulous word – I must remember to use it whenever I can 🙂
Thanks so much K&P – we are delighted with your unexpected gift.
We certainly enjoyed the time we spent with you and hope that one day we will meet again.
……and a lensbaby blip especially for pianopete 🙂
