Thanks Bill
I'm pretty sure I will, my allotment is behind the mill on Rosetta Rd,
champin' at the bit to get on with things, but the weather is still too cold and wet.
Regards Jock

Stoorifit, lang mey yer lum reek. Down here they banned reekin years ago and the house don't even have a lum.

For the sassanachs and ithers that don't know lowland dialect: dreich is something we know very well in Ireland but we call it

a gran' sof' day.

The scots version of a gran' sof' day is a combination of dull, overcast, drizzly, cold, misty and miserable weather. At least 4 of the above adjectives must apply before the weather is truly ..

dreich

Thanks for the welcome Everybody,
walltoall aye reekin lums are no sae common noo'adays, and we followed Ireland's good example by banning smoking in public a couple of years ago.
you are right about "dreich" but the way it is said also gives it a lot of meaning .
Liparis ,Bill, just thought you might like to know the meaning of stooriefit,(dusty feet)
In Peebles it means an incomer (a blow in) I've only been here 40 yrs but I tell
"Gutterbluids"( ie born in Peebles) that I chose to come here it wasn't an accident of birth, so you were a stooriefit for a wee while. There's no animosity though, its a very friendly place.
Regards Jock

Yes, stooriefit, I was for a few years, I worked at Castle Craig teaching gardening.
In Lockerbie from where I hailed we just called them White Settlers Laughing
All in the best possible taste, of course.
Bill.
