"There's nae hame can smoor the wiles o ye"
In the days when we had peat fires at home the last chore at night was to cover the burning peat with peat comb [ie.] peat dust, this was called smooring. In the morning the hand held bellows would be applied and the fire brought to life, thus a peat fire was never allowed to go out.
