How many of you didn’t give Valentine’s Day much thought and then suddenly got up in the morning and kicked yourselves in the….in the….yes there. I did. The kids came back home from school yesterday & went on & on about Valentines Day. Seems like Valentine’s Day is no longer just about ‘that kind of love’[and I never knew;-o], friendship is also celebrated on Valentine’s Day. So Nikita made friendship bands for her friends & Naina made cards for hers. They also wrangled 2 chocolate bars out of me, lovingly gift-wrapped it, wrote some fancy words on it and took it for their class-teachers.
At first I waggled my eye-brows, then patiently supplied all the material needed for their art&craft, watched them indulgently as they talked excitedly…….and then it clicked. Ohmigosh it is Valentine’s Day tomorrow!!!!!!!
Even before I started out[in my thoughts] I knew it was too late to do much.
I’ll cook something nice.
Good idea but as a last resort....
Make a card….
Been there, done that.....
What can I do…..
I have some chocolate with me………hmmmmm
Yup, I always have chocolate with me….for emergencies u know.
The chocolate…..luckily for me was wrapped in red
And the idea grew from there….
I went all around the house picking up everything red….
A few Plums[again red]
A small bottle of Berry Juice[I’m pretending it’s wine]
Chewing Gum[flavour – wild berries…red, red, red……;-D]
I’m on a roll now…..
Fished out a wooden basket from the kid’s toy bin [the original idea was to put them together in a shoe box].
Fixed the broken handle.
Lined the basket with silver foil…..
Arranged all the carefully chosen treasures artistically…
Borrowed a red ribbon from Nikita’s accessories to tie a bow on the handle.
The gift is ready.
And I've placed it in such a way it will be the 1st thing my hero sees when he gets up;-D
*__* - While rummaging around I also came across a cute ball of red thread, a small pack of vanilla in a red&white box, lays chilli chips, red apples and a red hair band.Had to omit them otherwise it would have been like overkill.....or shd I include them, tell me quick I still have time;-P
