“My Heart’s In The Highlands
Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North,
The birth-place of Valour, the country of Worth;
Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,
The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.
My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart’s in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;
Chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,
My heart’s in the Highlands, wherever I go.
Farewell to the mountains, high-cover’d with snow,
Farewell to the straths and green vallies below;
Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods,
Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods.
My heart’s in the Highlands, &c.”
Last night was Burn’s Night and last year I did a post all about him here .
As my Dad and family were Scottish and we spend a lot of our holidays in Scotland I do make a traditional Burn’s Night supper with Haggis, DH and The Boys are not fans though!!!! It was lovely!
Today DH and I are visiting a firm who make hand-made beds! Our current bed base we have had for over twenty years and it is now showing its age so are on the look out for a new one!!! Also a few house jobs to do.
I hope you lovely lot have a wonderful weekend whatever you are up to.
Hugs, Susie xx
