Cat lazing on the lawn leaps to alert attention at the commotion in the tree.
The Scottish Word:


“You are one long yirr – if ye dinni watch ‘n tak heed it’ll likely be the deith o ye.

Pleepin awa wi-oot pause.”


yirr: make an outcry, keep complaining.

“You are one long moaning pain in the ear – if you don’t take care and be mindful it will likely be the death of you.

Piping on without pause.”
