wacky word list

At the bottom of the blog I have added a list of words. These are Scottish words that I have heard being used here and what they mean in North America. I'll continue to add to the list when I come across more words. It is hard enough trying to understand the accent here without them throwing in words I've never even heard before! Hopefully the list will help anyone thinking about coming over here :)
If you've been to Scotland and have any words you think should be added to the list, let me know and I'll put them up.

Yep, it was the 24th. We went to Glasgow for the day and I've given Amy a few days to start blogging it, but I might just have to do it.
