    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    Bore da pawb, very wet & murky here in West Wales.

    My eldest is doing a bit of poetry in school & it reminded me of one of my favourite Welsh poems/sayings.

    Dwy galon, un dyhead,
    Dwy dafod ond un iaith,
    Dwy raff yn cydio’n ddolen,
    Dau enaid ond un daith.

    Which translated (as best it can be) means:

    Two hearts, one wish,
    two tongues but one language,
    two ropes that join connected,
    two souls but one journey.
