At 8:23am this morning I got a text message;
“Would you be interested in a lettuce, broad beans and maybe peas? don’t want to bring them to mmcc if not…i’m going away 2nite and can’t eat them” It read.
“Yes please. Thanks Gill.” I replied.
I wanted to add; “Have you got a bottle of wine to go with that?” but I have learnt the hard way that humor and text messaging don’t always mix very well so I decided against it.
When I arrived at work I found this.
I was chuffed. She had given me a whole bag full of goodies. Artichokes, an onion, a lettuce, beans, peas, Swiss chard, mint, sage, chives, 2 kinds of parsley and to my surprise a bottle of red wine. She must be a mind reader.
“It’s all organic…” She told me. “…from my garden, even the wine.”
Thank you Gill. 🙂
When I picked up Zeph from school I told about my present.
“What do you think we should make with it?” I asked.
I wanted him to say we could make a souffle with the artichokes and a spring salad with the chard & peas.
But he didn’t.
After an abnormally long pause she said;
“I don’t know. Daddy can we go to the park?”
Indeed, what was I thinking. Let’s get our priorities right.
