31st December approaches.

Up-to-now my practise sessions have been handled quietly on the Chanter, but in order to be up to speed on the big night I must now start practising with the full kit and caboodle. I apologise for any untoward noises that you hear in the background of my Forum responses.

p.s. to those of you that are South of the Border: "Happy Christmas"

I'm just a few miles from the Scottish border. Should I be worried!?

  PurplePenny 19:55 18 Dec 2006

No apology necessary. I will be happy to hear sounds of the pipes. Can I have "The Dark Island" please?

*chuckle* May I be the first to congratulate you on spelling "practising" correctly? It's a pet hate of mine when people get it wrong. Happy new year, two weeks in advance.

Go on pal, give it a blast. Have a brilliant Hogmanay.

I gather that Christmas is becoming a bigger festival in Scotland and is challenging New Year as the big event.


Cosmo Edinburgh is a great place to go, especially at New Year.

"...turn it doon a 'wee eddie,
ya wee baa heed".....lol

And caution with the barley wine and bucky!

No worries, always nice to hear the pipes in Scotland. Even more so at hogmanay time.

Thank you for the warning the earplugs are in and the defenders are on.

WHAT- What you say dear? I do wish she would speak up

in the company of a hundred or so assorted Scots and friends. The haggis will be duly piped in and someone will address it. A good time will be had by all, of that I have no doubt. I'll also bet money that I'll be the only Welshman present.

Wind in your pipes, wee eddie.

Now dont talk like that FE as a Welshman you should stand up and be proud, you even have a rugby team to be proud of these days!!

I have always liked the Welsh in fact we have some Hill Radnor & Kerry Hill on the farm!

A guid New Year tae ane an aw,

An may ye nee'er hae cause tae murn,
Tae sigh or shed a tear!
Tae ane an aw, baith great an sma,
A hertie, Guid New Year!

For wee eddie and aw Scotland.
