In a recent post I shared my plan to surprise everyone and decorate the house with a fabulous Christmas tree. I had already identified a suitable tree in the garden (it’s actually a bush) and had been waiting for the right moment to dig it up and bring it into the house.
The right moment came this morning.
The tall person had a lie in and De responded to my wake up call. De can’t read my mind like the tall person can so I knew she would not realise what I was doing in the garden.
I had almost completed my artistic trimming and was about to drag the Christmas tree surprise into the house when I heard the tall person talking to De.
I had run out of time, the tall person was awake and would be able to read my mind!
Sure enough, he came out to the veranda and found me and found the tree.
He didn’t say anything as I watched him re-plant my Christmas tree in the hole where it used to live in the garden.
You spoiled my surprise tall person.
He looked at me with a resigned look on his face.
“I am never surprised by your ideas Bassa”.
I liked that response. It confirmed what I already knew – we are on the same wavelength tall person but next time have a longer lie in and I may yet surprise you!
