Thanks to all of you who shared your thoughts on the original penknife dilemma, I really appreciated all of your opinions and it helped a lot when we sat down and made ‘the decision’…… *drum roll*…..
We bought the knife! Well, I bought the knife for, yes, it is me who does all of the present shopping in this house (ooh, another blog post there I reckon!). I will not glorify it in technicolor (went with US spelling there for trademarking purposes, yuk!), it is a very simple penknife with a wooden handle and a lockable catch. If anyone REALLY wants to see it badly, DM me and i’ll send you a pic 😉
I’m really pleased that we did:
1. It proper made his day, he grew about 3 foot and beamed, literally sun shone out of his face like some sort of alien encounter, and
2. He enjoyed his treat of Alvin & the Chipmunks…The Squeakquel, went back to playing Pokemon platinum on his DS and…promptly forgot all about it.
So you see, sometimes it’s the demonstration of faith that’s important… I think this was one of those times.
Thanks again x
