It was late. The kids were all settled for the evening, and the chores were out of the way. Time to relax.
Mr Goldfish approached me. His hands were hidden behind his back. He had that sweet puppy-dog look in his eyes. "I've got a surprise for you"
Now what wife wouldn't appreciate a gift like this? I was so excited. I may in fact have danced a little jig. A handful of old telephone cables he had discovered while cleaning through the study. Who needs diamonds?
No. He wasn't planning to tie me to the bed with them. Nor proposing that I tie him to the bed....
See that tiny bit of red and green wire poking out from one of the cables? I'll be crocheting with that. Or maybe knitting. Perhaps macrame? Who knows!
I wonder what other colours I will find hiding inside?
