Well, it’s 29 February. Perhaps the fact that we’re in a leap year is hardly worth a comment, but it adds a day to summer and I find things such as this to be interesting.
My grandmother found it “interesting” in a way, too. Her birthday was on 29 February – but as a girl, she missed out on that date in 1900 (because if the century isn’t divisible by 400, you don’t have a leap year).
EDIT: My periodical pension payment wasn’t in the bank when I expected it to be (normally, a few days before the end of the month). On checking the fund’s website, I found an announcement:
Pension members please note February pension payments will be paid by 1 March 2016. We apologise for any inconvenience from the delay in payment this month.”
Hmmm….didn’t they see the leap year coming?
