My mum says it could have been worse and I could have arrived on Christmas eve. There are some up sides to being born on boxing day. For instance, I never had to go to school on my birthday, I haven't yet had to work on my birthday and boxing day is usually quiet and relaxed and there is no pressure to plan too much which suits me nicely. In the afternoon while the chidren were playing I slipped away into my neighbours garden (whose front garden is mainly filled with veggies) to take pictures of his carrot flowers. They look very much like Queen Anne's lace aka carrot weed but are much sturdier. I have fallen in love with them and hope they last for a bit longer so that I can take more studies of them.
