However, this leaves me in an awkward situation, where I have a Mari Lwyd loitering in the entrance of my house in Caerleon. It seems a waste, having a Mari Lwyd at hand, to not then make use of it. So, if anyone is interested, I’m tempted on taking the Llanfihangel Mari out for a wonder in Caerleon on the evening of the 6th of January. In another spectacular moment of poor timing, I’m on a pre wedding, no booze, health drive (more to do with saving money for the wedding than actually being healthy for it), so the pubs I intend to visit will not be appreciated as fully as they might be usually, but if anyone fancies coming along, do feel free to drink heartily on my behalf.
Fingers crossed the Llanfihangel Mari will at least be able to stretch its legs this year, before a triumphant return to form in 2015! Do drop me a line though if you fancy helping the Mari find her way around Caerleon!
