Snow way to start the day
Yep...look at that. This is the weather we went out in on Saturday night. Snow. Loads of it. A bit of an occasion for us really as we often only see the snow from a distance. However, my poor wee Morris got a coating and we lost the lawn as well as the street.
However, we also had to go out to a Ceilidh. I was quite keen to go as I had never been to one before. I think the term "herding cats" best describes most of the nights antics; people going left when they should be going right "No, your other left!" some ginger haired, skirtwearing bloke yelled at me (more than once actually); the Stud was happy with his whisky and hardly noticed the weather (or me but thats another story too). I managed to get the hang of some of the dances, Imy tip is to have as much wine as you can before getting down to it 'cos you don't get much chance once the dancers get their hands on yiou!! We missed the opening of the night sadly because I threw my Scottish Heritage to the wind so that I could watch the Mighty All Blacks (sans Ritchie, boo hoo) deal to those recalcitrant South Africans. And we did of course. It was a helluva night weather-wise and the game was hard and fast too.
The Stud wore a kilt, of all nights to do that, and grizzled about the wind about his knees etc...ha!
I have included this clip because (a) it features Rugby AND (b) features Scotland and (c) I think if you squint you catch a glimpse of the gorgeous Gavin Hastings while he was still gorgeous!!
