Sunday, 4 December 2011If a deal looks to good to be true…it probably is!
Have you ever wished you hadn’t tried to save a few bob, (and with it the embarrassment, loss of respect and the sight of disappointment in your partners eyes!) but instead just gone down the tried and tested route? Well I think, maybe Mr PB may just wish that!
Now it’s fair to say that all I ever wanted was a lovely rockery at the bottom of the garden in which to plant my mini alpines and ferns? Well it couldn’t be that much to ask for could it, not from my capable Northern husband?
So after much extensive and serious ‘man research’ (or procrastinating according to me) seems he made the outrageous discovery that the average rockery rock costs about £3 from the local garden centre! As an engineer and closet ‘tight git’ he rapidly estimated that the 50 rocks required for said rockery would cost £150 of our hard-earned cash! In all honesty he’s not miserly, but he does like to shop around and grab a deal so off he went to Google ‘rockery stones’ while announcing that any money saved could go towards a new sun lounger for me, in which to relax whilst admiring my new rockery.
‘mas, mas tree’
It was so funny when we asked if he wanted to put a bauble on the tree, he promptly lobed the bauble he was holding which hurled into the tree …and somehow did get lodged between the branches rather than falling right off. His confused look as me and my partner were in fits of giggles only made us laugh more.
It will be a miracle if the tree lasts until Christmas…this morning there was a fresh pile of needles where he had bashed a few baubles!
But isn’t that what Christmas is all about?
Loved waking up and walking into the lounge to be greeted to the Christmassy smell of the tree…here’s hoping the bauble bashing will just be a novelty for the next few days! 🙂
