Who would have thought that selecting our wedding gifts of choice to celebrate the much anticipated and impending nuptials of Tom to The Lovely Laura could be so fraught ….. even after the aforementioned Tom and The Lovely Laura had gone to all the trouble of posting a matrimonial list of a present type nature on Amazon!
We did have a few idea’s of our own as to suitable gifts for the betrothed couple …… Nigel had set his heart on getting one of those crocheted crinoline lady toilet roll holders as he felt it would be something The Lovely Laura (Bride to Be) would adore and treasure forever and feel proud when visitors to her new home admired “her” exquisite taste….
Darrell wanted to buy a 3ft Asda garden gnome and I thought a door bell that chimed “Bless This House” would be rather nice ….. but as none of these were on the list when we looked, …. we decided that for safety’s sake we ought not veer from it’s path. Of course, Tom and Laura may have already put such gifts on, but other guests have beaten us to it !In the end, after much robust debate, at times heated, we all finally agreed on purchasing a
mezzanine melodious melamine bowl each.
Darrell choosing the olive one, Nigel the strawberry and I opted for the tomato one …. A most excellent choice we all decided, because they will help serve as a constant reminder to the newlyweds of the importance of adhering to a rigorous 5 a day routine (like ours), even during the first heady days of their honeymoon period …. when such regimes can be sadly forgotten!!
