A package arrived in the post yesterday morning for Darrell, naturally he was very curious as to whom it had come from, …… he was also very excited. I played dumb and said “It looks like a special sort of a parcel that ought to be opened in your bedroom, where you can be on your own, in the quiet, to embrace the moment……”
So he struggled up the stairs with it, up to his room, still wondering out aloud what it was and where it had come from.
What he didn’t know was that I had been in cahoots with a “certain someone’s dad” who had sorted something very special out for Darrell's birthday …. but it was a little late because that “certain someone” had been away on holiday round the time of his birthday.
Then it went very, very, quiet and then I heard a little gasp …
“It’s from Stacey ….. and she’s got ginormous writing! And she’s put a heart on the exclamation mark just for me …… how very romantic ”
Then Darrell opened the parcel …. “Oh my good giddy aunt!” he gasped again
“It’s Stacey’s book and she’s signed it for me, with a kiss and a huge heart in her signature ……
“I am so overwhelmed I’m overcome as well!” he said as he stroked where Stacey had written and stared at his card. I didn’t see Darrell again until about three o’clock, when he came down for a hobnob and cup of tea, his eyes were a little red, but I didn’t say anything! Thank you Stacey’s Dad for making this such a special day for Darrell xx
