Oh the shame!

As a parent you do what you can, but there are some things that are out of your control. Despite our best efforts it is looking like Lucy is going to be a south paw. A left hooker. Left Handed! Apparently surgery can't help. It look like she is destined to have bad hand writing, an inability to use scissors and an artistic temperament. At least there is a store she can go to visit others who have the same condition...

Obviously I'm joking and we don't care. Both my Mum and Sister are afflicted. But this article is very interesting. And there really is a store for left handed freaks folks. You can find it here.

Love from the Artistic Freaky Sister.

It is amazing in this day and age that there's no cure. Even if you were to tie her left hand behind her back for several years, thus forcing the correct side to improve, as soon as you remove the ropes her brain would take over and she'd start using the sinister hand again.

Still, this is the 21st century. People don't point in the street, and she doesn't run the risk of being tried by an angry mob wielding pitch-forks and blazing torches. Well, not in Camberley anyway, but perhaps they still do that in Barnes.

Lefties make great sports types. Although as Daz points out the stout folk of Barnes will spurn you!!!

Both of my two are lefties. I don't think anyone else on moth sides of the family is, so I don't know how they've managed that.

Odd, isn't it.
