Happy Valentine's Day
How did it go at your place?
I have loved reading some of your blog posts featuring your Valentine crafts
and seeing homes so beautifully decorated.
No such fuss at our place, Mr Wren and I had a pact.
No fuss this year!
I do have a chuckle though every time we come home as this is what we see!
Hey, not bad for me making no effort at all, is it?
You see we are waiting to move into our new nest,
in the meantime, we are staying at the rather gorgeous Dusit Thani hotel.
They along with everyone in this crazy city seem to embraced Valentine's Day
with several million teddy bears!
The Thais are loving (excuse the pun) making a fuss of Valentine's Day
Everywhere we go each shopping Centre is decked out in LOVE and roses.
It is great to see the colour returned to the streets and the people smiling after last year's somberness following the passing of their adored King.
So imagine my surprise
when I was given this vase of beautiful orchids this morning.
There was a knock on the door and I was presented with these beautiful orchids by the hotel concierge with a cheery Happy Valentine's Day greeting and smile!
'Is this from you? I thought we had a pact?'
I asked Mr Wren thinking that I recognised the handwriting.
Mr Wren looked suitably shocked as I opened the card
which said Happy Valentine's Day from the staff at the Dusit Thani.
Ha Ha, 'how lovely' I said completely taken in by it.
Mr Wren was laughing, I thought of being upstaged by the hotel.
Then the truth came out, he had bought two bunches of orchids from the local supermarket and left them with a card and instructions to pretend that the gift was from the hotel staff.
The hotel obviously thought that if I was going to think this was from them that they would spruce up the rather meager offering and voila
what appeared was thoughtfully tarted up a little.
The concierge had added the red heart and ribbons, the white flowers, the gold card and placing all this in a lovely vase to be delivered
to me from the wonderful staff at the Dusit Thani
Gottcha Mr Wren!
