Burns Night is this Friday, January 25th, and celebrates the birth o’ Scotland’s most famous poet, wordsmith and lyricist, Robert Burns.
Tae be brutally honest, there is almost nae connection between Burns Night and Attic Self Storage, but in the interests o’ cashing in on what’s trending on Twitter, and tae improve our McGoogle ranking, we are prepared tae try and find one. Or two. Och aye the noo.
A wee bit o'history
Robert (Rabbie) Burns was born in January 1759 in Alloway, near Ayr, Scotland and became famous for writing poetry. Attic Self Storage started trading in March 2008 in Bow, East London, England and has become famous for providing storage space. Nae spooky synchronicity there then.
South o'the border storage solutions
However, for fans o’ the Scottish Bard, it is worth noting that Attic Self Storage is a fine (moth and moose-free) place tae store the complete works o’ Rabbie Burns in rare leather bound volumes and all manner o’ other non-perishable Celtic paraphernalia:
Swathes o’ tartan fabric (and tartan paint should you be an Interior Decorator with a young apprentice that you wish tae wind up)
Bay City Rollers memorabilia
Barrels o’ single malt whisky
Highland Games cabers and other equipment
Kilts and sporrans
Cable knit jumpers and Harris Tweed jackets
Signed portraits o’ the Loch Ness monster
Bags o’ bagpipes
Original vinyl discs o’ Paul McCartney singing ‘Mull of Kintyre’
Blue face paint
Enough sunblock tae protect a veritable ginger army from the sun’s harmful UV rays
Things ye cannee keep wi'us
Unfortunately, we are unable tae provide a permanent repository for perishable Burns Night delicacies such as haggis (sheep’s heart, liver & lungs minced up with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach), Tatties (potatoes), Neeps (swede) and deep fried Mars Bars (use your imagination, Jimmy).
Addressing the laddies and lassies
If you’re going tae a traditional Burns Night celebration this year, we hope ye enjoy the blood curdling wail o’ the bagpipes, the rich timbre o’ the toast-master’s voice and the sonsie taste o’ the haggis (Great chieftain o’ the pudding-race!) washed down with a warming whisky.
Wi' apologies tae Mr.Burns
Tae get ye in the spirit, here are a few auld poems we recently discovered at the back o’ one o’ our storage units:
