Cha chuala mi an litir bheag, ach leugh mi e!
I didn't hear the little letter, but I read it!

Bha mi cho thoilichte!
I was so pleased!

I understood all but maybe two or three words without resorting to the dictionaries! It made me feel like all of this hard work is starting to pay off! biggrin.gif Of course I know that it was geared toward beginners, but this let me know that I'm not a beginner anymore!

Hal Wizard, ciamar a tha thu?

QUOTE
Cha toigh leam a' gearr an fheur!
I don't like cutting the grass!

Tha mi a' smaoineachadh gum biodh e na b' fherr a sgriobhadh-
I think it would be better to write-

Cha toigh leam a bhith a' gerradh an fheir
After words like 'cutting', 'making', 'fixing', 'eating' etc. Any following definitive noun must go into the genitive. So you are literally saying 'cutting of the grass' - a' gerradh an fheir
opening (of) the door - a' fosgladh an dorais
Playing (of) the pipes - a' cluich na pioba

D do bheachd a Fhaileas? Am bheil sin ceart?

Tha sin ceart smile.gif.

Hallo a chardeain - hello Friends,

tha i nas fhuaire a-nis air an t- eilean agus tha beagan uisge ann

It is colder now on the island and it is raining a bit.

Co - dhiu, tha mi cho toilichte air sgath gum bi laithean dheth agam a-maireach agus Dihaoine.

However, i am so happy begause I'll have my days off tomorrow and Friday. biggrin.gif

We did a tour round the north end of the Island in the car with the parents of Bruce. laugh.gif

I almost forgot how beautiful it is.

Feumaidh mi falbh a-nis - gheibh sin dinnear snog sa Chuillin Hills laugh.gif laugh.gif

D mu dheidhinn...
What about....
D tha sibh a' danamh aig an deireadh-seachdain?
QUOTE

In Gaelic there is no word for 'a' or 'an' so -
Good night = Oidhche mhath
A good night = Oidhche mhath biggrin.gif

Uill, 's dcha gum bi mi a' dol dhan amar-snmh no rudeigin mar sin, leis a' chlann.
Well, I'll probably be going to the swimming or something like that with the children.

Ach a-nochd...Bidh mi a' dol dhan taigh-sheinnse airson deoch no dh. beer_mug.gif
But tonight i'll be going to the pub for a drink or two.
