A Brick

Stewart came home from work last night - " I've got you a surprise" he said and presented me with a rather heavy wrapped parcel. Hardly containing my excitment I ripped the wrapping off to find... a brick!

Now I know my reaction should have been "Oh darling, how lovely! It's a brick...I've always wanted one."

But instead what came out of my mouth was "It's a brick... hope you didn't pay for that!"

Very indigant he walked out muttering "It's Art - and it's not just any brick, it's sprayed silver"

Okay.....



The he came back in with another parcel and inside this were these three adorable little ceramic women, sitting chattering! They had been displayed on the brick in the shop and he persuaded the shop keeper to let him have the brick too!


It's the nicest brick I've ever had and it reminds me why I love him!

  13. I always felt he would come found to our way of thinking: I feel much better now - to think it was only six months ago he described me as weird.

    Way to go Stewart!!!

  15. Awww, bless his hand-knitted cotton socks. That's such a sweet thing to do - to wrap the brick separately, and give you that first.
