Dal Lan… || Catching Up…

[cy]Unwaith eto, er gwaethaf fy mwriadau gorau, dwi ‘di methu cadw lan gyda hwn gydag unrhyw fath o gysondeb. Wedi dweud ‘ny, mae’r faith fy mod i’n hysgrifennu hwn ychydig dros fis ar ôl i mi wneud yr un diwethaf yn rheswm dathlu dwi’n siŵr.

Ers i mi fod ar fy ngwyliau, mae pethau wedi tewi. Does fawr ddim o deithio, gyda Leeds a Southampton yn ddiwedd reit ddiflas ar 7 fis prysur o deithio personol ag ar gyfer gwaith (rhaid pwysleisio mai’r dinasoedd sy’n ddiflas, yn hytrach na’r rhesymau i fi fynd ‘na).

Felly, beth oedd y pethau fwyaf diddorol yn y mis diwethaf? Wel, falch boch chi di gofyn…

Priodas Faye ag Andy
Ie! O’r diwedd, siawns i mi gyflawni ar fy addewid i fod yn ddyn gorau i Andy, a gwneud yn siŵr fod o’n troi lan yn y capel ar gyfer y briodas. Roedd y briodas a’r parti wedyn yn dipyn o hwyl (blaw am y “jôcs” Cymraeg diddiwedd). Aeth yr araith yn well na’r disgwyl, gyda phobl yn chwerthin yn y llefydd cywir (mwy na sydd gallu cael ei ddweud am araith Andy…).
[/cy]

[en]Yet again, despite my good intentions, I’ve failed to post with any degree of regularity. That having been said, the fact that I’m writing this just slightly over a month after my previous effort is surely cause for celebration.

Since the holiday, things have largely been quite settled. The ammount of travel I’ve had to undertake has decreased considerably, with a few trips to Leeds and a brief trip to Southampton being a rather lacklustre end to 7 months of work/personal trips (specifically in regards to Southampton, the destination is what I regard as lacklustre, rather than the event that took me there).

So what have been the highlights? I’m glad you asked…

Faye & Andy’s wedding
So yes, I was able to discharge my duties as Andy’s best man and see him married off to Faye. The wedding was lovely, and the reception was jolly good fun (apart from the endless Welsh jokes). The speech seemed to go down well, with people laughing at the right places (which is more than can be said for Andy’s effort).

On last pass through the speech...

[cy]Ymwelwyr
Un o’r pethau reit foddhaol am y lle newydd (a’r ffaith fy mod i nawr yn cael penwythnosau adref, yn lle gorfod teithio i rywle) yw fy mod i’n gallu rhoi rhywle i ffrindiau aros. Dwi di gael sawl un yn gwneud dros y penwythnosau diwethaf, a di cael amser da dros ben yn dal lan da nhw. [/cy]
[en]But I digress, the Bride & Groom looked very happy together, and a good time was had by all.

Playing the host
One of the nice things about having the new place (along with the free weekends that come with not having to travel places) is the ability to play host to friends who visit. I’ve had a few do so lately, and it’s been an absolute pleasure to see them. It’s not something I’ve been able to do in quite some time (having been in a flat-share before that for pushing on 2 years). [/en]

Nice view for dinner
[cy]
Cadw Tŷ
Un peth ddaru mi ddim ystyried cyn cael y tŷ oedd faint o waith sydd ‘na yn cadw’r peth. Dwi’n deall digon am beth i’w gwneud (rhedeg y hoover a phallu o gwmpas), ond dwi dal ‘di synnu gyda faint o waith sydd i’w gwneud, a pa mor aml mae angen gwneud y peth (er engrafit, do ni heb ystyried bod angen glanhau’r llwch oddi ar y fframiau yn y lolfa. Yn sicr, dwi’n deall yn well nawr pan fod Mam wedi rhoi cymaint o strach i ni fel plant am faint o waith oedd yn mynd i gadw’r tŷ yn lan.

Teledu
Ag i gloi, gan fy mod i adref, dwi’n cael amser dal lan gyda rhywfaint o deledu, ac wedi bod yn mwynhau “Mad Men” a “How I met your Mother”.

Wel, dyna ni… tan tro nesaf! [/cy]
[en]Keeping house
Something I’m having to come to grips with of late is actually keeping a house. I have a vague understanding of how such things work (surfaces need going over with the vacuum cleaner, dusters over shelves and alike), but I’m constantly surprised about how much work is involved, and how often it needs doing (it hadn’t occurred to me for instance that I needed to dust above the photo frames in the hallway…). Needless to say, I now have a better understanding of why Mum kept having a go at us when we were younger about how much work she put into keeping the house clean.

TV
Finally, being at home a bit more means I have time to catch up on TV, and have been rather enjoying “Mad Men” and “How I met your Mother”..

So, that’s your lot. Until next time…[/en]

    Awesome post. Where’re you up to on HIMYM? The new series starts next week, and it’s worth catching up by then!
