I know that I should not be posting this - not yet anyway. Not until I am sure that a certain camper is at work and safely tucked up in his first meeting of the day.
That way, he won't know - so this will be a surprise. As it is his birthday an' all...
...shall I tell? Nggg, I want to, I want to!
Okay (scroll down) if you would like to know.
Or move on from this blog if you don't.
Honey, you too - move right along. Don't scroll down yet - nothing to see here, nothing to see!
...Hun' stop peeking, shall I go fetch a skillet?!
Okay...well maybe there is. A small something to see, that is.
I had a lot of fun yesterday picking out something really bright, colourful and silly to be delivered to the fella at work today.
After all, he is many timezones away so I cannot make a fuss of him in person.
After the serious formal flowers that I sent last time, I am just really hoping that the florist will put together something that is really fun and will foghorn loudly to his co-workers that today is his birthday and that they should be kind and make a fuss of him on my behalf.
The question is, for maximum silly effect, which arrangement do you think I opted for?!
If you are quick and vote via a comment now, you may even get your guess in before B posts a picture of the evidence! (At least, I hope that he will! *nudge, nudge*)
Was it A: flowers in the shape of a cake?!
Was it B: flowers in a mug that is a clear throw-back to clubbing and funny dancing in the nineties?!
Was it C: cheerful flowers in a vase printed with symbolic birthday candles (cupcakes not included in order, image is a serving suggestion only)?!
Was it D: a bucket of manly junk food for a comfort eating attack while watching a dvd?!
Was it E: the flowers presented as a present with a loud balloon attached for extra office embarassment?!
Was it F: an arrangement of flowers presented in the format of a gift wrapped present?!
Ahhh, decisions, decisions.
You know, with such a lovely array of daft arrangements to choose from, it was a tricky moment, selecting something to achieve the desired outcome (laughter, hopefully) and let him know that I am thinking about him from all the way over here in London.
Aww, ain't I sweet?
Fella, Happy Birthday. I hereby and publicly promise to cook you a birthday dinner when you get here...not long until I see you now!
