One unsuccessful home made loaf, a broken finger nail, (I wonder where that went) vegetable soup and The Great Chieftain of The Puddin’ Race with its accompaniments were presented and heartily tucked into. We toasted the bard with single malt whisky, (what else!) supped from nosing glasses.

From the wreckage of the ‘feast’ there’s plenty soup remaining and at least one more meal of haggis. I have enough clapshot left to last a week…

In case you’re wondering, for those of you not in the know, today, the 25th January 2009, is the 250th celebration of The Bard’s birthday. There have been Burns suppers arranged in most villages and many hotels around Scotland for most of January, to celebrate and toast Robert Burns.



  1. Thank you 🙂

    With all the left-overs, the domestic Burns celebration will continue for a few days yet!

    I’ll let you into a secret Ax. As far as I know, I don’t have any Scottish blood in me either.

  2. Och aye Ellie, you can get vegetarian haggis these days. You’ve no excuse for not celebrating your quarter’s worth of the bard.

    We had the remainder of the soup for lunch today and we’re tucking into what’s left of the rest for our dinner. I might just extend to another wee toast to the bard!
