OMG!!! How I blushed!!!!

OK, picture the scene.....
i come home after doing some shopping to find the postie has been...popped some letters through my door and a card to say he had a parcel, but it wouldn;t fit through the letter box so could i go and collect it after leaving a 4 hour gap. So I sat there wondering what it was.....what can it be and WHO has sent it?
I know I am not expecting anything and haven't ordered anything.
So.......I wait.....and I wait......and then, 4 hours later I arrive at our local parcel depot and I go inside to be greeted by a rather dashing young i give him my card and he disappears behind a wall for a few moments.

Then he returns....with a HUUUUUGE grin on his face....and he winks at me.....and i blush a little.....and that is when he said the words that will forever be etched in my mind.......

are you Anita 'SUPER SPROUT EATER' MacDonald?..........

With a blush as bright as the autumn sunset i muttered the words....'yes, that would be me'
( i think it actually came out as a strangled squeak!!!) and I grabbed the parcel most graciously and made a hasty exit!

I just KNEW as soon as he said those few words just WHERE the parcel was from.....and Missy....if you are reading this you will now know that you will forever more need to sleep with one eye open ;).....because revenge is a dish best served cold.....unlike sprouts! Having said that I am sure they are nice cold, dipped in chocolate and rolled in cocoa powder to make truffles........

The gauntlet is thrown down......mwahahahahahahaaaaaaa! I shall endeavour to make it my life's work to get you back he!he!he!( in the nicest possible way of and thank you very much for the parcel....its sitting nestled under our tree and will be carefully opened on Christmas morning....just incase it's booby trapped!

in the meantime feast your eyes on i wish we were having these at the dinner table on Christmas day....what fun!

Incase any of you were wondering....I just ADORE sprouts.....alas my hubby and girls detest them :( and I am not allowed to cook them along with our other in the freezer I have sat a lovely microwavable bowl of them.....thats supposed to be enough for 2 to 3 to share.....well it would be rude to leave any or throw them away wouldn't it? So think of me on Christmas day when I am sitting enjoying my delicious little green friends....and I hope you will all be enjoying yours too!

But watch out on Boxing Day!

Warmest wishes Anita..xxxxx

Guess who is ONE!!!!!!!

Where HAS the last year gone? It's flown by so very fast. This gorgeous little man was ONE on Saturday! It really doesn't seem that long ago that I had the pleasure of cuddling him for the first time.......he is just soooooooooo delightful, he really is!

Anyway, on Saturday he was One Year Old and as we couldn't make it to see him then we popped round yesterday for a belated celebration.

He is such a handsome little fella isn't he?

It is a family tradition that when our little ones celebrate their first birthday we give them a small chocolate gateau for the birthday cake...... so here it is Josh.....ENJOY! He was a little wary of it to start with.....but soon got stuck in!

He is SUCH a sweetheart and is happy to share bless him. Who could resist a bit of cake when its served so lovingly LOL.

Hang on Mum! I have got a little bot of chocolate on the back of my hand I think.....hang on! I will get it ;)

Cake???? Wot cake????? I haven't seen anything....and nobody can prove anything either ;)

He!He!He! Glad you find me entertaining ;)

Let's ALL worship the God Of Chocolate
....Raise your hands with me!!!!!!! he!he!he!

Happy First Birthday Little Man, you are such a treasure and I am so delighted to be your Aunti....xxxxxx
Love and cuddles from Aunti Neek....xxxxxx
p.s. I think I can feel a layout coming on from this!
