Happy St Andrew’s Day

Today is St Andrew’s Day, the patron saint of Scotland, and I just wanted to mark it because, despite it being our saints day, as a nation Scots aren’t great at celebrating it.

Here's the man himself, St Andrew.

There’s also this thing whereby the Scottish Government designated it a bank holiday, but I  only know of one person who’s off on Monday (the nearest Monday to St Andrew’s day) and that’s because her kids are off not because her employer is letting her take it as a Bank Holiday. Hey ho.

Of course, I am a bit biased when it comes to today cos it’s my birthday too!

So happy St Andrew’s Day everyone! Hope you have a great day! I certainly will!
