See you next year

This’ll be my last post before Hogmanay, the Scottish version of New Year. Being Scots we take New Year very seriously, and on New Year’s Eve we resolve to cut out bad habits, embrace a healthier lifestyle and become better people. To demonstrate our commitment to these lofty aims, we then try to kill ourselves with alcohol poisoning, get into huge drunken arguments about nothing in particular and catch pneumonia after spending the night comatose in a ditch. It’s great :)

Here’s hoping that wherever you are, whatever you’re doing and whoever you’re with, you have a great Hogmanay and that the New Year hangover isn’t too debilitating. Slainte mhath, slainte mhor!*
