Robert Burns and as is traditional here in Scotland, we have been doing a few things to celebrate:
. Miss M made a little figurine of Robert Burns using a loo roll tube and I think it bears a canny resemblance to the famous poet! We have also been enjoying some songs and rhymes from the book you can see in the photograph.
. At school, they are learning all about their country and it's traditions and legends. This week's homework was to make a sculpture of Nessie the Loch Ness Monster using materials found at home. Miss M made hers out of salt dough and a piece of wood for the loch. She is very proud of her Nessie!
. Miss M's hair tied with a tartan ribbon for school this morning.
. Shortbread was baked and enjoyed. Recipe from this fantastic book.
. Finally, haggis, neeps and tatties for tonight's dinner! Traditionally served with a wee nip of whiskey to toast the bard, but none of that here as we are both working early in the morning!
