All week I’d been waiting for a surprise present from my boyfriend. He’d sent it as a spur of the moment thing, and kept it a tight secret. It didn’t help he kept giving me the wrong hints which would send me into a quandary wondering what it was. At first I thought it was a bag, then a stress-ball, another bag, a purse, another bag (haha…. I can never have too many bags now?), clothes and yet another bag… He teased me the whole time, just playing along, pretending to admit the truth. It killed me, but it was fun. I’m a sucker for surprises. ^_^
When friday came, nothing arrived. I was getting restless and a little annoyed. Loosing stuff in the mail seems to happen to often… I really wanted my first gift from him. During that time I indulged in the latest issues of ELLE and Marie claire in order to catch up with Paris Fashion Week 2011 (Oooh the designs this year…. mmm! The next post will be about some of my fave pieces). I also wrote another mini ritual for the earth and the souls lost during the devastation that hit Japan.
Saturday: I was in bed till gone 8am, I’m never in bed at that time in the morning, work has messed up my body clock so much I automatically wake up at 5am, even on annual leave. So I was in bed, chilling to some Maroon 5, when the door knocked really loudly from downstairs. I jumped up like an excited little girl and ran down the stairs to answer. To my ‘expected’ surprise the post man gave a white and red box to me and just wondered off as if it killed him to bring it to the house. I ran upstairs, sat on the bed or rather I jumped without breaking it, and attempted to hold my curiosity down. Bring on Skype! – my boyfriend watched me open the package slowly, as if looking for a bomb. The whole time he was telling me he forgot what it was – yeah right!
Inside the postal package was a heavy 1K box, with golded wrapping paper and a gold ribbon. Anyhoo… forget the suspense; I ripped it open et voila! Leonidas Chocolat all the way from Loveland! ♥
