I was out with the geekdaughter yesterday, just the two of us. She had a dentists appointment, which she thankfully behaved very well for, and afterwards we popped into the local supermarket to pick up a few things, primarily a bag of carrots, as we needed one to make a nose for our snowman!
In a rather uncharacteristically organised fashion I managed to spot a couple of things that would make good Christmas presents, including a gift pack of two bottles of the geekdaddy’s favourite beer along with a branded pint glass. This would seem the perfect gift for the geekdaughter to give him. So I picked it up, and explained to her that we would buy it for Daddy, but we had to keep it a surprise until Christmas Day. I also reminded her in the car that we had to keep it a secret from Daddy.
So as we arrive home and walk through the front door she went racing up to him yelling “Daddy, Daddy we bought you beer and glasses!!”.
I’m just hoping he’s forgotten about that by Christmas Day…
