I'm Loved !!

Iven's never been much of a gift-giver. I think he has gift-giving phobia. Around Christmas and my birthday you'll often see him staring into space with the look of a hunted animal on his face. It's gotten to the point where I rarely expect much for either of these big occasions, never expect anything for Valentine's day or our anniversary and would probably fall down in a dead faint if he bought me anything spontaneously.

Well today a miracle occurred. Iven went to the hardware store to buy a new handle for our broom (because I'd worn the last one out taking joy flights over the city every time I had PMS). He came home with the broomstick and this -



Now don't be jealous of my new toilet seat with the soft-close lid. It's not one of those fancy seats with heating. It's just not cold enough here to warrant that - even on our most bitter Winter morning.

The gift has made me feel so special - almost like the time I got a toilet cistern for my birthday (no joke). And being the first to use it ... it just showed me the place I held in Iven's heart and that made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

And what did I do to warrant such a gift? Nothing X-rated I can assure you. All I did was complain about having my butt bitten every time I sat down on our old toilet seat. And Iven couldn't bear the thought of my tooshie being hurt


Don't you all wish you had someone who loved you this much!

  9. Your hubby must have gone to the same Romantic Gift giving school as mine. I've never been as lucky to get a new toilet seat, but wait for this. I got a new tow bar one birthday for HIS boat.

  14. This is what you wrote on my blog.

    My attitude to books is that life is too short and there are too many good books o0ut there to persist with a bad one - unless you have paid for the book yourself and it's cost a lot of money.

    It is EXACTLY what I say and think all the time. And sometimes even when I have paid for it I don't finish it.
