We tried to find a couple of pictures of our friend Archie, who now lives in Moray, (a very romantic sounding part of Scotland), in our archives, but unfortunately due to our various computer blips over the past couple of years, they, along with a lot of other stuff have sadly vanished into the ether!
….. But we still keep in touch, especially, at this festive time of year. When Archie’s parcel arrived, no doubt after traversing many a mountain, glen, and loch …. we surmised that bells could possibly be involved, from the jingle jangle that came from within its midst, but we adhered robustly to the message on the tag “Not to be opened before 25th December”
But on Christmas morn …. with Christmas paper flying in every direction, we found that each small parcel contained a wondrous hand stitched holly leaf badge complete with a silver bell ….. we were totally overwhelmed in a jolly holly type way.Nigel’s was pinned to his new bobble hat before you could say “Jingle Bells”
….. and then he helped us pin ours on too.
What a lovely, lovely present …. and an extremly cunning one too, because we can now keep tight Yuletide tabs on Nigel as we can hear him wherever he goes …. which he hasn’t cottoned on to yet, he just thinks our Derek Acorah senses have been heightened since we watched A Christmas Carol over Christmas!!
“Thank you” so much Archie and Lynne …. for our “bonnie, bonnie” gifts, we LOVE them xxxxx
