Activity may be a bit restricted over the next few days, folks.

The dreaded lurgy appears to have taken itself off and I’m feeling a little better, but my mum was taken into hospital last night and will be there for a few days.

So, I may or may not have time to do much Munguining…

But, in the meantime, enjoy the great Scots words being introduced to the UK public thanks to unashamed Scots using their language in the hallowed British parliament.

Thanks Sarah.


  1. Tris, hope your Mum will be well again soon (and, of course, your good self). At the age of 99 my mother took a severe stroke and we are a long way from the nearest acute hospital, so there was a long ambulance trip. With a lot of help from doctors, nurses and other professionals, she got back on her feet with the aid of a zimmer after about 8 weeks in hospital. Her speech was affected but her mental faculties were fairly well restored. She then took it upon herself to go walkabout without assistance, fell and broke her hip (she had broken the other one at the age of 97!). She survived another operation and, although unfortunately she became immobile after that, she saw her 100th birthday and sailed on for another few years. We Scots are a tough breed right enough, and we do have a fantastic Scottish Health Service. Tell your Mum we are all thinking about her.

    Take care, both of you.
