So this week we had that super extra bonus day February 29th and leaped into my favourite month of March. Proposals were bountiful in Ireland – we had women proposing in the airport, on the pitch at half-time and that’s only the one’s that made the news! Romantic Ireland dead and gone? Fear not W.B.Yeats, it was well and truly alive on Leap Day. After a hectic few weeks, am looking forward to kicking back this weekend. Am meeting friends, going to a movie and attempting to make Julia Child’s Boeuf Bourguignon. Wishing you all a relaxing weekend.

Happy Flyday!

“When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap.” [Cynthia Heimel]

“It is a truly wise man who does not play leap frog with a unicorn” [Anon]

“Many great things indeed have been achieved by those who chose not to leap into the mainstream” [Joan Mondale]

“All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous, unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.” [Henry Miller]

“I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.” [Les Brown]

“We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success.” [Henry David Thoreau]

“When you’re young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don’t leap at all because there’s not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there’s no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?” [Sex and the City]

“Thirty days hath September, / April, June, and November; / All the rest have thirty-one, / Excepting February alone, / And that has twenty-eight days clear / And twenty-nine in each leap-year.” [Anon]
