Happy 29th February everyone! Are you doing anything special today?
It is said to be the day when a woman can propose marriage to a man. When I was ten years old I had a crush on the bread delivery boy, so taking the opportunity afforded to me on that special day I summoned up all my courage and asked him to marry me. He replied, "Ask me again in ten years time and I might say yes"! Needless to say he was replaced by another in my affections. I think that tradition is Irish, do you know any more?
(The leaping frog is from my book " The Acorn's Story").
