Twenty years on...

I'm well aware there has been a dearth of postings on this blog recently. The reason, you see, is that Mrs Tips and I have just celebrated twenty years of marriage. Perhaps I should rephrase that slightly; Mrs Tips celebrated and I cast my mind back to a time when I used to enjoy life. Only kidding.

Nowadays, you see, dear reader, I have to be very careful what I write in this forum as Mrs Tips has taken to reading these pages, furtively, on a regular basis.

As a present, I'd considered sending Mrs T. an offering from Arena Flowers, my especially selected 'emergency flowers' web site. Like a lot of blokes, I'm not particularly good at flowers (or picking winners for that matter, as I'm sure you'll have noticed) but I am cute enough to realise that, on occasions, an 'emergency flowers' site is worth its weight in gold, particularly when you've committed a minor indiscretion or forgotten dear old Aunt Nance's ninetieth birthday.

In the end we went for a slap-up meal instead.

Today's tip - bookmark the Arena Flowers site, just in case...

Of course there are some husbands who treat their wives to both the flowers the slap up meal!

Hey, just looking at your music to study form to, not bad, there are some good songs. One i would definately recommend is OkGo, with "Here It Goes Again". Type it into youtube, listen to the song and watch the video. A classic song.

You can't go wrong with some Arena Flowers, virtual or real! Be careful...the Mrs might use our send a hint feature to remind you of what you didn't send her!

Having had a good look at the Arena Flowers site this evening, I have to say that I am very taken by several of their stunning bouquets. The last time I received a delivery of flowers from dear Mr Tips was one snowy Valentine's Day when we had just moved house, almost twelve years ago. I am hoping that one day I will qualify for another such treat in the very near future, by that I mean sooner rather than later and not when Wrexham win the FA Cup! One can but dream.

I hasten to add that I am not dreaming about Wrexham winning the FA Cup, I dream of the flowers of course. The last time we celebrated Wrexham doing something right saw us sharing a full slap up meal of fish fingers, chips and beans, washed down with some good old Cava! Those were the days! Still, let's not forget my Wimbledon champagne. Who needs horses?

Look what you've done now, Will. Mrs Tips is 'very taken' by several of your 'stunning bouquets'. I can't believe it. She even started searching for the 'send a hint' feature on your site but, fortunately, was unable to locate it. In a moment of weakness I picked up the phone and was about to call, but then a little voice in my head said 'Are you sure you want to do this? Mrs T. might get a liking for this sort of stuff if you start now.' So I had to put the receiver down.
