I thought you might enjoy this little snippet of conversation from our day, we are in the kitchen and Mum is rummaging through the wine rack:
"Here you are, take this for your Girls Night in on Friday" she says, brandishing a bottle of red wine in my direction.
"Thank you" I say "But you really don't have to do that."
"It's Dads" She says
"Well, he doesn't have to then"
Then she says in a stage whisper "Don't tell him"
"You can't do that!" I exclaim
"Yes I can! Anyway, he hides the good stuff" (I'm not sure how to take this)
"What, like a squirrel?!" Oh my goodness, what is the world coming to?
"Who from? You don't drink it"
"He hides it so I don't give it away....
Well that works then!
I am starting to wonder if she is giving it to me just to get rid of it and stop him drinking it.I walk off into another room smiling as she shouts from the kitchen
"There's 3 in the airing cupboard!"
"Three what?" I shout back and then I realise....... he's not hiding them very well then!!!
PS As we head off for a sedate dog walk she thrusts the bottle into my hand again.
"Better put it in your car now love, so you don't forget it"
She's not going to tell him she's given it to me, is she?!
