Aunt, return and academic.

It's Rosey's birthday -- so here are three beautiful things about her! 

1. She is already a very enthusiastic aunt and she was one of the first people to know about BB (she guessed within a fortnight).

2. A couple of weeks ago, she came back safely from an expedition to Svalbard, and did not tumble down a crevasse or get eaten by a polar bear.

3. She is quite the cleverest and most hard-working of the three of us siblings -- she has a physics degree and she's working on her PhD. This seems completely miraculous to me, who disappointed all my teachers at every turn and only just scraped a BA.
