Hallo Eilidh,

Bha sin gl mhath. 

That was very good. No prob;ems with your use of past tense. 

Ach feuch: (but try)

> Bha i reothadh [redhadh no redhte] ann a' Newmarket an diugh.
> It was freezing in Newmarket today.

> Bha i a'cur sneachda beag an de.
> It was snowing  a little yesterday.

Bha i a' cur beagan.
(a' cur implies snowing so you don't need 'sneachd')

> Feumaidh mi falbh air an obair agam a-nis.
> I must go and do my work now.

Feumaidh mi falbh an obair agam a dhanamh.

I think these sentences are correct, but I would appreciate corrections
as well!
