Singing in the snow

Happy St David’s day!
While the Uk is covered in snow and it is still too cold for the daffodils to come out and blossom, we celebrated Wales and my name’s day.

Nick baked a wonderful salmon with leek and sauti potatoes (that’s how Yorkshire people call sauté potatoes), and I cooked a lot of sweet Welsh cakes, to be eaten with butter and jam.

If you think deaf people are not musical, you would change your mind listening to Nick singing to himself all the time. After our Wales-inspired dinner we put on Shirley Bassey. Nick and I channelled our inner divas and sang out loud her big hits on an invisible stage in our kitchen: Big spender, I (who have nothing), as long as he needs me. We were no less glamorous than her.

Il primo Marzo è la festa di San Davide, patrono del Galles. Il Galles è un paese particolare, dove le persone parlano ancora il gallese e ogni cosa è scritta in inglese e gallese. I simboli del Galles sono il porro e i narcisi, che stanno spuntando proprio ora, da sotto la neve che ha coperto la Gran Bretagna. Per festeggiare San Davide Nick ha preparato il salmone coi porri e io ho fatto le tortine gallesi, piccole pastefrolle con le uvette, cotte in padella. Dopo cena ci siamo messi a cantare Shirley Bassey, una cantante gallese, quella di Goldfinger. Siamo molto bravi nel lipsyncing.
