The next Scottish wanderer we needed to check in with in Sydney was Miss Wood, one of my oldest friends from Orkney. Karen took us out for a lovely meal where we turned the table cloth into a work of art and Erin was handed enough balloons to carry her away on the breeze as we left 🎈 🎈 🎈 .

Burns Night is right around the corner!  Hosting the first one at my place this year 😊 (Irish.classic is indeed half Scottish btw) Made a menu of what I'm cooking up; may change Haggis to Meat Pie, just to ensure my guests show up.

Fold forming is by far my favourite technique. I love seeing how the pieces evolve into 3 dimensional forms. 😍 #foldforming #confession #lifeofajeweller

Happy new year from Orkney - where we bring in the new year by having a massive ball game on the streets on Kirkwall. It's pretty crazy... as you can see! There are two teams, Uppies and Doonies, and one goal is in the harbour! It usually lasts for hours; the longest one I think has been over 8 hours and last year one of the games only lasted 15 minutes! It's played every Christmas Day and New Year's Day and it's a huge event in the town.

Do you have any unique New Years traditions where you are?

It doesn’t matter how far away you go, home will always be home. The nostalgia is overpowering yet a thousand memories flood back the minute you step foot on Orcadian soil. The big move to Australia will always be the best thing I did but I will always be a ‘Home buddo’ #proudscot #orkney #orcadian #bornandbred #scotland #kirkwall

George Mackay Brown: Andrina and Other Stories, Grafton Books
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
~
This collection of short stories by George Mackay Brown was the first book I read by this Orcadian author, and I did not know what I was in for. Although his sentences are simple and there is not one word too much, the stories are deep and full of magic. Some were like riddles to me and I did not get their hidden meaning at all, while others spoke to my heart and touched me deeply. All stories take place in Orkney, albeit at different times, and they mostly are about the poor and weak, about life in small huts and little villages, about fishers and farmers - and now and then about a bard or a storyteller, like George Mackay Brown himself.
I definitely felt the magic of Orkney come through in these stories...
~
Bookmark bought at the St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall, Orkney, where Brown‘s funeral service was held in 1996. Secondhand copy bought at the famous Leakey‘s Bookshop in Inverness. Muffin baked by my talented cousin 😄
