burns night

tartan wreath for the front door

st andrew flags and tartan bunting on the fireplace

the celebration tree with tartan bows

and rabbie burns

and thistles and celtic brooches

and bagpipes

haggis, neeps and tatties

a wee dram

background music

decorated dog

we ate scotch broth to start, the traditional main and then clootie dumpling with shortbread (i managed to find a recipe for microwave clooties! i don't do steaming for 4 hours...)

we made the traditional speeches, addressed the haggis, read poetry and sang auld lang syne

and i found that whiskey really aids a restful sleep!

'lang may yer lum reek' (i know it's usually said at hogmanay but seems befitting tonight too)
