'ello 'ello 'ello! Whats going on 'ere then ? ;-)

A certain someone's birthday is coming very soon!

But what to give him?!

Just after we were married, I recall racking my brains !

I had no idea what to get dear Mr S!

And then, lo and behold, I saw an advert in Country Living:

Dumb waiters, hand crafted!

' Ah ha ', thought I rang the number in the advert

and after a long conversation and much secrecy...

Mr S 'number 2' was born!!

(OMG it's bad enough living with one of them, let alone two!!) ;-)

At the time, Mr Snippets was a proud member of the Devon and Cornwall Police

and so it seemed rather apt to present him with this lovely dumb waiter.

Incredibly, I think it's quite a likeness!! And I do remember

laughing my head off when it arrived!

Of course, he was not Mr Snippets at the time,

that name being relatively new!

Anyway...hope you all have a lovely weekend...and behave yourselves!

I'm off to Totnes tomorrow ... present hunting!

Now he looks like the kind of policeman who'll issue something delicious rather than a ticket.

Happy birthday Mr. Snippets!
