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.
