No, I know it is not Christmas but it does feel like it!!
Yesterday we celebrated the birth of our second grand child, a darling boy. A healthy 6lb 4oz baby who came into this world at 2pm. Mother and baby are doing fine!
The lyrics of the poem about the days were used to teach a child the order and names of the different days of the week. The theme of this poem ensured that a child would take a lively interest in which day that they were born on! The title, whether Thursdays Child or Mondays Child, is often forgotten. We only seem to have vague recollection of a poem about the attributes to being born on different days of the week.
Mondays child is fair of face,
Tuesdays child is full of grace,
Wednesdays child is full of woe,
Thursdays child has far to go,
Fridays child is loving and giving,
Saturdays child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
Other notable happenings on 29 January were:
The birth of Tom Selleck (1945) who is in good company with Oprah Winfrey born on this day in 1954! Just thought I would add that itsy bitsy bit of gossip!
