Burns Night was approaching. I went to Tesco to get neeps - but they had sold out. I went to the corner shop - they didn't do them. At lunchtime at work the next day, I went to another Tesco. No neeps. On the way home from work on the 25th I popped in to a Co-op. Sold out. Neeps, neeps! My Burns Night for some neeps! The great neep hunt was not going well. I was neepless in Newbattle.
My guests would, I decided, just have to make do with carrots.
