The responsibility of having to purchase so much chocolate, for so many ladies weighed heavy upon my shoulders….. especially knowing that their short term happiness depended on me………..
I am afraid that I was so busy checking and re-checking my list on the bus that I didn’t notice Mr Collis’s monkey sitting at the side of Mr Collis’s seat, until he coughed and said “A-hem….. remember me?”
The shop was huge ……
and chocolate was in abundance ……
But, I knew I had to stay focused on the task in hand before I could have fun …… (that will come in tomorrow’s post).
It was a good job Mr Collis’s Monkey offered to help me, because in the end we had filled 5 carrier bags ……. which Mr Collis put in his spacious boot so that it wouldn’t melt. Those ladies sure are hungry ladies!
When I got back I had to put everyone's orders together ……..
and sort out what everyone owed me …….
To be honest I was quite, quite exhausted and didn’t really fancy any chocolate …… I fancied something savoury instead.
