I have spent a fair amount of time sorting out Christmas. Organising various food deliveries, tidying the spare bedroom, buying presents for teachers, friends, grown ups, teenagers and the dog. And I have decided that people fall into one of four categories:
- They give you a list. In the case of my children when they were small the list also had Argos Catalogue numbers on it.
- You know exactly what to buy and where to get it
- You come across something and shout “yes, that. That is perfect”.
- Or you shout “what to buy for the person who has everything” and you trawl the internet whilst scratching your head
I got an email last night from a friend who will remain nameless but let’s just call her Annie for the sake of this post. Annie had come across a product that she had declared “is perfect for the person who has everything, such as Mummy Barrow”.
The email just contained a link to said product. So on my phone I quickly opened up the link. Eager to see what on earth could have caused Annie to email me at 9.30pm with such a declaration.
A giant Martini glass?
A never ending supply of chocolate?
Nope. None of those.
Ladies and gentlemen I give you:
There is nothing further to say. I am speechless. Just so many questions. Why? Who? How? WHAT?
And now I have to write about this thing. And I have to put tags for search engines and I am not sure I want people putting those two words into Google and finding this blog.
I had a lovely post planned today all about Christmas trees. With a picture of our tree. I wrote it earlier this week when I was planning a whole week of Christmassy posts. It has pictures of our pretty lights and home made baubles and glitter.
And I think my head is going to implode.
