Fairy Dust

If you've been around me for a while, it won't take you long to figure out that I love fairies. I have a collection started of various fairy merchandise, with Tinkerbell leading the way.
I don't know what it is about fairies that makes me slightly obsessed. I love Tinkerbell's character because she is so cheeky and has 'tude. When we moved to Edinburgh, I left a lot of my fairy stuff behind, including a collection of "Night Fairies" I had gathered over the years. I did manage to fit my favourite Tinkerbell coffee mug though and that is what I drink my coffee out of every morning. Mr. K is aware of my love for anything fairy and is patient and supportive. He even indulges my need to collect fairies every once in a while. Tinkerbell PJ's, Tinkerbell hoodie, Tinkerbell key chain and even Tinkerbell underwear are just a few of the things he has bought for me over our three year relationship.
Yesterday, upon returning from lunch out, Mr. K said he had something for me. I had known for a few days that he had a surprise because he had told me that his original plan for his week off was to have a romantic night, complete with present. Mr. K isn't really that romantic, so I was floored. We still haven't had our romantic night seeing how Mr. K is still recovering, but he did give me my present and guess what? It was a Tinkerbell figurine holding my favourite stone, an amethyst. Technically, she is supposed to be a part of Disney's birth stone collection and she is the representative for February, but I love her. Not only is she Tinkerbell, but she is holding a purple rock. If you know me, you would also know that I love purple.
I was very happy and touched  that he had picked out such a thoughtful gift. I promptly put the figurine on the little mantelpiece above our gas fireplace and gave Mr. K a huge hug.
It really is the small things in life that mean the most isn't it?

P.S This afternoon a dog trainer from the guide dog school here is coming out to assess Glacier and I and Mr. K and Roscoe. The reason for the assessment is long and I'll fill you in later, but wish us luck.

Best of luck with the assessment although, its all probably happened at this stage. Do the dogs have to be re-registered to Guide Dogs UK?
