Lost in Translation!

Note to self:-
Think before you blog!

I've just put Google Translate on my blog.
Great idea! 
Not everyone speaks English.  This will help others around the world share my wise words and wisdom (ahem)!

Except ………………… I've posted a few Burns poems ……………….!

How on earth are they going to be translated!
I also use a few wee Scots expressions … oops, I've done it again …!

Never mind!
Just to add to the confusion …. to all my lovely blog friends …..

Lang may yir lum reek!

Love, Liz

ps - It means something good ..... honest!!!!!!!

Thanks Jill - isn't it funny that we sometimes write the way we speak! Glad you like the accent. Liz

Haha. I liked that. My dad was from Glasgow and he used many sayings every day which became part of my language including that one. He lived in England longer than Scotland in the end but still nobody could understand him.
