Dydd Santes Dwynwen

...or Saint Dwynwen's Day for anyone who isn't welsh.

St Dwynwen's Day is celebrated in Wales on the 25th of January, which is today!

St Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of lovers (ooh la la) so I guess you could say she is the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine.

She lived in the 5th century and was pretty damn cute (apparantly). She was one of Brychan Brycheiniog's 24 daughters. ( he was the king of Brycheiniog, South Wales, at the time)

Wee hotty see!

Dwynwen fell in love with a prince called Maelon Dafodrill, but unfortunately her father had already arranged that she should marry someone else.

This is where the story gets pretty crazy, believe if you will.

Dwynwen was so upset that she could not marry Maelon that she begged God to make her forget him. After falling asleep, Dwynwen was visited by an angel, who appeared carrying a sweet potion designed to erase all memory of Maelon and turn him into a block of ice.

God then gave three wishes to Dwynwen. Her first wish was that Maelon be thawed; her second that God meet the hopes and dreams of true lovers; and third, that she should never marry. All three were fulfilled, and as a mark of her thanks, Dwynwen devoted herself to God's service for the rest of her life.

She founded a convent on Llanddwyn, off the west coast of Anglesey, where a well named after her became a place of pilgrimage after her death in 465AD.

Visitors to the well believed that the sacred fish or eels that lived in the well could foretell whether or not their relationship would be happy and whether love and happiness would be theirs. Remains of Dwynwen's church can still be seen today.

So yeah..there it is..why wait until Valentines Day when you can say a big "dwi'n dy garu di" (I love you) to that someone special 3 weeks sooner ;)

Appox - What a guy!

Having received my student loan and grant and not wanting to end up blowing it all on hookers or alcohol I decided to invest in a new PC cause my laptop is shit and I've been hanging with my buddy Appox and playing a ton of steam games lately and gettting back into the PC scene, the ol' boy is even helping me choose the best parts.

So I've got the PC parts sorted, I'll show you specifics later when I've built it.

I already have a few decent games on steam, a few humblebundles and the likes but was definitely looking to invest in the valve pack and various other games on steam,

Not only did Appox help me choose my PC parts he asked around his friends for any coupons they were not using from the Christmas gift period; he then traded me 41 items!

Check my inventory :

I must give a shout-out to Appox for all his help! You should all check this guy out! He has some awesome videos! Check his youtube channel HERE!

But for good measure I have added a few of them below! Enjoy

They Are Watermelons - Ep4 - Rainbows

A Hot-Chocolate Kind of Day.

Yesterday I spent the day with my friend Ruby, we had some chocolate and just stocked up on milk, even bought some whipped cream so hot chocolate was definitely on the cards.

We started off with just a normal hot chocolate (cadburys powder) with hot milk and whipped cream, twas epic, we also decided to crumble some choc chip cookies over the top too which was fecking tasty!

Later on in the evening we found a couple of party size mars bars, and a new venture was born.

For the next hot drink I put the milk in the saucepan and began to finely chop the marsbars, which proved difficult as they were in the fridge previous; I would suggest leaving them out of the fridge if you plan to do this.

Once the milk had warmed up a bit I dropped all the chopped up mars into the pan, and mixed it until it all melted in, Just before the milk was about to boil I pulled it off the hob and put a teaspoon of hot-chocolate powder in two mugs and then poured the milky-mars goodness, gave it a little stir, swirled some whipped cream on the top then sprinkled some crumbles chop chip cookie over the top.

Thinking back I really should of taken pictures but at the time it didn't seem like something I would be writing about.

Come to think of it I still have some "Terry's Chocolate Orange with Honeycomb" and some "White Toblerone" both of which I feel would taste great melted in a mug, will probably try one of these later as I feel it could be something of epic proportions.

God Speed.

Always the artist...

I play a variety of online games and for a few ( & ) I have always been fond of making profile pictures, over the years my skills have improved but I was just cleaning out my laptop of old files and came across some images I edited from a while back; I guess this is just me sharing a few of my favorites with you.

That's all for now folks!
I also must give a shout-out to an old friend/mentor who goes by the name Joe Faine - (he made me do this)
