Leap Year!


'We have a leap year because a standard year is not actually exactly 365 days long - it's 365.2422 days long, so slightly longer than we count in a standard year calendar.'

Leap year is also well known as the one day of the year were a women can propose to a man, it is said this old Irish tradition dates back to the 5th century! When St Patrick agreed to allow females to propose on one day of the year, the leap day, feb 29th.

I'v heard of a few birthdays on today, it must be very exciting when you have to wait 4 yrs for your day to come! Whatever you are up to today, I hope everyone enjoys the day and tries to do something spontaneous and out of the ordinary....

Happy Birthday Granny!

Sunday was my Granny's 80th Birthday!!

On Saturday my parents took her out for lunch, they had lunch in the Avoca tea rooms and had a nice walk around the Garden Centre. 

On Saturday evening we had a lovely tea party. She got loads of lovely pressies, including a very cute mug warmer from my sis all the way from Finland! Wish i had a photo of it!

My mom made us some lovely treats, including triangle sambos and homemade brack. Granny got loads of lovely pressies and i think she really enjoyed her day.

Happy Birthday, Granny!!
