Last Monday was very interesting indeed for me thanks to husband. After taking my wudhu (ablutions) for Maghrib, which was at like 10-something-ish-p.m. (so late kan?) I walked into our room with my glasses perched on my head. Okay so, without my glasses on, I am basically pretty much blind. Of course if something is riiiiight in front of my face (i.e. a few inches away) I can still see but any further everything is blurry. So I walked in to the room and vaguely noticed a brown package sitting on my bed and went into panic mode. I went, 'Shit, did I order something online and forget about it? Crap, I promised husband I won't be doing any shopping for the next few months.'
I basically ran to the bed, blaming my baby brains for this lapse in memory and quickly put on my glasses. Then I saw that there was a single stem of a red rose, with a packet of Lemon &Buttermilk Spongecake (which I can basically finish eating in two days flat) and a package wrapped in brown paper stuck with a post it. I went from 'Holy shit' to 'awwww….shiiiiiit!'; it was a an early birthday present from husband; a really early birthday present from him! The funny thing was that when he came home from uni I randomly asked him what did he bring back for me since my birth week (why celebrate for a day when you can do it for a week!) is starting soon.
Although I have to say that I was a bit upset with husband at first; I told him that this year we didn't have to celebrate my birthday, especially with gifts and stuff. Almaklumlah (as you know), we are expecting a baby and of course we need to prepare for baby's needs first and foremost. We still haven't bought anything for the baby other than the cotbed (which needs a new mattress and sheets) and the strollers and stuff (which also needs new padding) which are both second hand. So yeah, we are moving at a really slow pace for right now. Oh gosh, and most importantly, we still haven't gotten a breast pump yet! These things super cost a lot of money and even though I would like to think that I am as awesome (actually awesome-er) than those famous bloggers, no one is banging on my door to sponsor us stuff *sniff sniff*.
So back to the story, before this husband kept saying that he wanted to get me a tablet but I refused saying I don't really need it since I am at home and I use my laptop mostly. If I do need to use it, I would just use husband's tablet and most of the times it's because I'm bored and I want to play games (!!). As I was opening the present (feeling guilty as hell) I was thinking if he bought me a tablet I'm gona flip out because I don't want/need it. And it turned out that husband didn't buy me a tablet…he got me something even better; he got me a proper watch! Cue freaking avalanche of guilty feelings!
I've always been wearing cheapy watches; it's easy for me because I do almost everything with my watch on. Eat, sleep, go out, wash plates….well, except for shower (but I used to though) and poop. It didn't really matter at that time what event I was going to I would just wear the same watch. If it was anything overly formal, I'd ditch my watch and just rely on my trusty sidekick; the handphone. So not only was I using and abusing my cheapy watch, it was one of those that had a pretty big face that made it look kinda manly. Obviously husband noticed all this and thus got me a proper ladies sized Tissot watch. Of course I freaked the hell out! I know, for some (or even most) people Tissot is like another one of those cheapy watches that they can buy whenever, but not for me. All my life the most expensive watch I've ever bought for myself cost me RM100.00 (roughly 20.00GBP); yes I'm a cheapskate and I love it! ;p
Yes, the rose is in a Nutella jar! The rose was actually part of a dozen but I decided to put the rest of the flowers in a vase in the living room. Share the love yes? ;) hmmmm…I feel like I've already wrote so much and now I've got nothing else to say other than I am still pretty much buried under the avalanche of guilty feelings. Pffffffffttt!
Husband, thank you so so much for breaking the bank and the budget to spoil me. I absolutely love it! Now, we just have to resize it for my skinny wrist. ;p
