A Guid New Year to ane an’ a’

A Guid New Year to ane an’ a’

A guid new year to ane an’ a’
An’ mony may ye see,
An’ during a’ the years to come,
O happy may ye be.
An’ may ye ne’er hae cause to mourn,
To sigh or shed a tear;
To ane an’a baith great an’ sma’
A hearty guid New year.

A guid New Year to ane an’ a’
An’ mony may ye see,
An’ during a’ the years to come,
O happy may ye be.

O time flies past, he winna wait,
My friend for you or me,
He works his wonders day by day,
And onward still doth flee.
O wha can tell when ilka ane,
I see sae happy here,
Will meet again and merry be
Anither guid New year.


We twa ha’e baith been happy lang.
We ran about the braes.
In yon wee cot beneath the tree,
We spent our early days.
We ran about the burnie’s side,
The spot will aye be dear,
An’those that used to meet us there,
We’ll think on mony a year.


Noo let us hope our years may be
As guid as they ha’e been,
And trust we ne’er again may see,
The sorrows we ha’e seen.
And let us wish that ane an’a’
Our friends baith far an’ near,
May aye enjoy in times to come –
A hearty guid New year!


Meaning of unusual words:
winna=will not

November 2009

November was a very good month for photography, 23790 hits on the website mainly due to the 6 nations trophy visit to Shrewsbury Rugby Club , Robyn’s 16th birthday party and  2 business shoots . Shropshire images ranked well also. Best financial month so far too with kidz in sport football shoots busy in order to get the book out by end of November.

So how do I top that? well, looking to do more business shoots , already booked one and also have a Rugby team and individual shoot.It’s unlikely to be a top month but planning for 2010 is the key. Finding that niche whether it be in Sport and Business keeping the Landscapes and Travel for pleasure.

Anyway, looking forward to a good month and a more prosperous New Year.
