Happy St Andrew’s Day!


I’d like to wish all my blog followers a very Happy St Andrew’s Day.

It’s time to enjoy a grand supper of haggis,  neeps and tatties and a wee dram of single malt.

I have so many very happy memories of suppers with friends and family on this day in times gone by: in Perth, St Andrews, Hong Kong, Singapore, Düsseldorf and Chepstow, and many other places around the world. But I won’t bore you with my own personal reminiscences, I’ll just leave you to enjoy sharing the rest of Scotland’s National Day, and enjoy your feast.

    I am only half Scottish so maybe I’ll just have the neeps and a wee dram 😉 Happy St Andrews Day!

    • No excuses! I am half Scottish too.

      My Mum was from the Highlands and my Dad is from Yorkshire, so that makes me one of the most generous men on Earth, right?

      And I just love haggis!

        Ah – my dad is Scottish and my mum is an East End girl. Which makes me rather scary sounding, I think! I have to confess to not being a fan of haggis but tatties & neeps are fab – and of course the fabulous lorne sausage! Yum!

      • Gets even more complicated for both of us!
        I was born in the London Borough of St Pancras, so almost a Cockney (hear the Bow Bells on a very quiet day!).
        So I could be a Scottish Yorkshire Cockney! 😃
