We are very excited because 2012 is a Leap Year (or intercalary/ bissextile year, if you want to be posh) and it’s something we have never experienced before, so our excitement is both palpable and tangible at the same time!
However we are not really sure what to expect, all we know is that it only happens every four years and we get an extra day rush photocopying and laminating, which is always good! We understand too that we could be proposed to at any second by a young lady, but since we now have a mutual understanding with Tallulah, that seems unlikely to happen!
…. But do we give and receive cards and presents and stuff …… or do we feast greatly? There doesn’t seem to be any 29th February protocol for us to follow, though we have searched the subject robustly on the internet.
So we have made decided to make up our own traditions, …… we are celebrating with the exchanging small ornamental frogs and having a tea which will include Leap Cakes ….. they are only really misshaped chocolate teacakes, but judging from the shop Darrell bought them from and the closeness of the sell by date we are taking a Leap of Faith by eating them!!!!!!
HAPPY LEAP DAY 2012!
And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to everyone who’s birthday it is today, it must be lovely to have an extra special nativity, but we much prefer having our birthdays (and presents) every year!
