The boy done good

I often wonder if my OH is ever listening to me but then ever so occasionally, he does something that just takes me completely by surprise and makes me realise that I really have hooked a 'good 'un'.

Take my birthday meal on Saturday night. Ages ago we'd had a conversation about approaching 30 and I left clear instructions that if I was going to do it, I was gonna do it right. I wanted balloons and cake and banners and sparkly things and generally just a massive fuss. Heck, it ain't often that I get to be the centre of attention so I might as well take my chances. Thinking he'd probably forgotten I didn't mention it again but alas, at our meal on Saturday, there it was, a table with helium balloons and confetti glitter and later on, the biggest chocolate cake I think I'd ever seen. :) :) :)

And then today, he went shopping by himself whilst I was with friends. I recieve a text saying that he'd bought me some gifts, which was surprising enough in itself but curious, I couldn't wait to get home to see what I'd been bought. In a John Lewis bag were:

Apparently, they were a 'saw this and knew you'd love them' type gift. And he was right. It just proves that ever so occasionally I can be surprised by his thoughtfulness. I think he's a keeper. :)

  1. Isn't it great when they surprise you like that? Especially when they buy you something that you absolutely love and you think 'OMG you do actually listen!'
    I got a Radley bag for my 30th which was so perfectly 'me' and so utterly unexpected. :-) x
