Mae'r hanes fi mywyd...


Mi hefyd, diolch.


Why does 'i mi godi' form the past tense in this case? You either conjugate the verb or use 'gwneud' as an auxiliary, but neither has been done here; shouldn't it be 'Gwnes i godi'?


"ar ôl i..." means "after" but doesn't specify tense -- you get that from context.

So it could be "after I got up" (past), "after I get up" (present/generic) or even future.

Though since in this sentence, the second part is past, the first one will presumably have past tense meaning as well.
