Imagine my glee when I found out that Paolo Nutini (of A Pencil Full of Lead fame) has covered one of my favourite Burns songs. The combination makes me feel like I could jump from a mountain and not fall. I’m not patriotic by nature but this song makes me extremely happy and grateful to be Scottish.
A few days ago I applied to volunteer in a hostel in Oxford in the Summer. I reckon it’ll be a no, but if it is perhaps I’ll see if I can find something to do in Scotland.
