Ding Dong Merrily on high, Diane is feeling happy!! (Sing it to the tune - it sounds much better!!).
Well my little bloggy friends, how are things where you are? I do know that there are several of my friends out there that are having stressful times at the moment, and some who I really wish would feel much better healthwise. That would be my main wish for all of you as the new year approaches, 2013, that you all have a healthy new year. That surely is the main thing we could have in our lives (yes, I know that money helps as well!) as life can be pretty dreary if you are suffering and in pain for a lot of the time.
Last evening I went out with a good friend of mine for a pre-Christmas meal, as we won't get chance to meet up now before I leave for France on the 22nd December. Her birthday is on the 28th December, so I was feeling quite chuffed that I had everything all organized, and took along her Christmas and birthday pressies to give her.
Now then, and here's where the title of this post comes in, I was really pleased with the birthday present I had bought her, as I knew it would be just her. Anyway, we were sat there eating our meal, and chatting away, when she put her handbag on the table. My mouth dropped open in horror. "Oh, that's a lovely bag", says I. "When did you get that one?". "Oh", she says, "I bought it yesterday."
Well, you have probably realized that the bag sitting on the table was the very same bag that I had lovingly wrapped up for her birthday earlier in the day. "Oh bum," were words that were going through my mind!
She said that she would change it, but I felt really bad then, so I think I will have to brave the shops once more and look for something else for her. Of course, if she hadn't brought that particular bag with her last night, I wouldn't have known about it!
Hey ho! You can't win them all.
Sending blessings and warm wishes your way my friends. Take care.
