Darrell and I did enquire as to whether the village Tesco Express would be stocking any Haggis in preparation for Burns Nichte tonight, but we were sadly informed that there was no call for Haggi(s) in “dees dem parts” …………
…….. However this was music to Nigel’s ears, as he had been robustly behesting that we should really be mostly piping in bonny wee bowls of old fashioned Scott’s Porage Oats, in ample sufficiency …. in celebration of
Mahogmoney Burns Nichte …….. , after taking all the free porridge promotion in the school kitchen very much to his heart.
…… which we will follow by a further ample sufficiency of cheese oat cakes, our current savoury biscuit of choice, after saying our version of The Selkirk Grace ……..
Some hae meat and canna eat, And some wad eat that want it, But we hae porage and we can eat, And sae the Lord be thankit.
Happy Burns Night!
