To a Haggis.

January 25, 2013

 

Hello! Hope you’re well!

As some of you may know I’m Scottish and today is Burns night (an annual celebration of our favourite bard Robert Burns). Some of you may also know that the traditional Burns night dish is haggis!

And for the benefit of those not familiar with haggis I have taken the time to illustrate one for you.

Above is your typical wild mountain haggis. Typically a haggis has 4 feet, 2 are shorter on one side. This is for running up mountains sideways. Haggii are also extremely tasty and because of this are extremely rare so they’re only hunted during the first month of the year and you need a special haggis licence.

Anyways, happy Burns night everyone!

I’m Going on Holiday

March 18, 2011

Yeap! I can’t wait, it’s going to be so nice!

So where am I going? Well! I will explain on this here post-it note.

I’m off to Uist in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, It’s pretty much the middle of nowhere. I actually can’t wait to be out there with no phones of computery nonsense, I’ll be doing lots of exploring, maybe some landscape drawing and a bit of fishing.

What I’m most excited about though, is bringing my telescope. As I imagine the light pollution over there will be a lot less than here in Glasgow so I’ll get to see a lot more stars n stuff.

Anyways, Have a great week and I’ll be back soon with some tales of travels!
