size matters

When a baby gets born within your circle of friends or family you usually receive a card/text/mail very soon which tells you the usual parameters. In Germany that means name, date, time, weight, length and sometimes the head circumference.

Not in the UK where apart from name, date and time only the weight (and this one of course never in the official metric system but in the old imperial one aka lb instead of kg...just to be different) seems to matter.
Apparently the baby doesn´t even get measured after birth...so if you are planning to give birth on the island and want to impress and keep up with your mainland friends then don´t forget to put a tape measure into your hospital bag ;-)
