(This one is actually quite good!)
Ah, Boxing Day - apparently this used to be the day when we opened our "boxes", ie our presents. I'm not quite sure when present-opening migrated to yesterday, maybe googling it will give an answer:
*pause while I google* Oh! Boxing Day was supposed to be the day when the staff and tradesmen were given their gratuity. Hmm, wonder if I should tell my Clients about this tradition? *laughs* No, I don't expect a gratuity from Clients, it's enough that they pay me to work in their lovely gardens!
I don't imagine that many people will be working in their gardens today, we are all too fat and full up from huge turkey dinners yesterday, not to mention the weather. I'll be happy if I can get to go out for a walk around the streets.
Talking of which, even on a day like today I can't quite stop being a gardener - I always like looking at what other people are growing in their front gardens, partly to see what they have, and partly to see if they have come up with an interesting or clever way to get around the usual front-garden problems of access, no light, paving for parking, wheelie bins and lack of attention. Or even, a particularly effective combination of planting.
I'll try to remember to take pictures of anything interesting...
Meanwhile, back to the Terrible Christmas Joke of the Day:
Who hides in the bakery at Christmas?
A mince spy.
