Oh, joyless it certainly is, and bitter too. Good job there’ll be a warming dram later to honour Rabbie Burns, the people’s poet.
It’s a double whammy today – £25, a pony, featuring the Burns £10 note. 25th January being Burns Night, I think we have today all wrapped up. Plain as the nose on Rabbie’s face.
We remain in crisis however, with n’er a haggis to be found at the shops this morning. I do make a rather fine vegetarian haggis myself but that rather misses the point. I like a McSween’s myself.
