Miner the mole listening to a well prepared Ma bear in her shoe protectors and see through waterproof plastic mackintosh in the light of a full moon.
The Scottish Word:

Daunder

Ah’m awa for a daunder in the Wild Wood – codgie in the knowledge that the skeeriest thing in there will be me.

Translated:

daunder, dander: a stroll.

I am going for a stroll in the Wild Wood – cosy in the knowledge that the scariest thing in there will be me.

ˈdɑndər

The Moon.

A timely time for me to feature a big full moon. This year (2016) sees the moon at its closest to the earth.

It will not be this close again for another 60+ years so make the most of it.

This biggest of big full moons happens on the 14th of November.

In Scotland it will rise around sunset and it will set about 7:30 in the morning.

To get the full effect of its increase in size you need to see it on the horizon and get trees or buildings next to or in front of it to give it scale.

Otherwise it’s just the same ole moon in the sky as always.
