I’m relatively new to following Jill, but I’m fair enjoying it. I’d hate wir heritage to disappear as I love the Doric and I dabble in writing Doric poems. I wrote a wee booklet a lang time ago caad “Smile a Fyle” which I sold and split the proceeds atween the school I worked in at the time as a PSA and a childhood cancer.

I was born and brocht up in Keith but bide in Alford noo. I’m an aul mairrit wifie wi twa grown up bairns an three Granbairns, so I get plinty o bosies.

Anither even o my hobbies is playin the bagpipes. I’m a member o Inverurie Pipe Band and I fair enjoyed meeting up wi them twice a week afore this virus kicked off. Athing has been cancelled since lockdoon an I dinna ken fan we’ll get back. They’re jist like an extended faimily an I canna wait to see them A again. Onywye, that’s enough o me ramblin on! Keep up the Great work Jill.

My Uncle Bob’s Dad wis a wunnerfae chiel

He telt A’ us bairns that Ee washed it in milk!
We held on tae ilky wird that Ee spoke!
A magical man lik this, widna joke.

Ae day, there wis fower o’ us kids in Ees flat.
A’ the big fowk could hardly hear themselves chat.
Bob’s Dad gaithered us A’ roon aboot ees knee.
He didna raise ees voice, he wis special ye see.

He telt us a very special secret that day.
We a’ listened closely tae fit he’d tae say.
He said that he’d fairies at the fit o’ ees yard.
Bit we’d hiv tae be quait, and we’d hiv tae look hard.

We’d get a much better view, fae the stairs in the lobby.
He’d stand there for ‘oors, it wis kinda his hobby.
He showed us far tae be, tae see pretty well.
He told us his fairy wis caad Tinkerbell!

Well, maist o’ the day in that lobby we bade.
An’ we A’ saw Tinkerbell, well, thats fit we said!
An’ the grown-ups got bletherin’ wi’ cuppies o’ tay.
Aye, Bob’s Dad wis clivver, widn’t ye say?!

Fin yer daen Jolly Phonics

As in sin or sit or sun!
Which brings ma on, conveniently
Tae the sang ca’ad “Auld Lang Syne”
Can ye see a “z” in the hinmaist wird?
It jist isna “Auld Lang Zyne!”
Ma heid gings feel fin I hear a “zyne”
Ma hubby shouts at the telly.
Should we hiv tae pit up wi a’ these “zynes?”
Not on your flippin nelly!!
So, fit exactly is a “zyne?”
An’ fa put it intil wir sang?
We hiv tae eradicate these “zynes”
We canna sing it wrang!
So come on fellow sufferers
Dinna zit in zilence!
We canna zing these zilly “zynes”
Nor will we resort tae violence!
We’ll educate them that dinna ken.
We’ll hiv tae gie them a sign!
We’ll post a blog upon the web
For the sake of Auld Lang Syne!!
