You may remember some time ago Nigel found a foam “M” lying randomly on the pavement on his way to work and had availed himself of it with a little pleased hum ….. well, I had forgotten all about it until yesterday afternoon …..
Nigel had gone VERY quiet, and when I popped my head round the door of the room where he was, I have to admit to thinking that he was being a little furtive when he said that he was just do a bit of colouring in …. but I let him be…..as he seemed to be concentrating very hard,
……. little suspecting that there was a lot more going on than just the aforementioned colouring in ……
…… which included Nigel’s “found” foam M, great dollops of glue and copious amounts of glitter and sequins ….
After about three hours of almost complete silence, except for the odd chorus of jingle bells , Nigel came running downstairs looking for Darrell and I in a most excited state.
….. so we all gathered round and Nigel presented us with a mahoooosive red envelope with our names on …….
….. and inside was the most wonderful Christmas card we had ever, ever seen, made by Nigel, all by himself, without any help at all, not even a spelling ……. it was a very, very robustly emotional moment!
Darrell put Nigel’s card, after dabbing his eyes and blowing his nose, in pride of place on the shelf in the dining room.
