a better light



The Technical Advisor is concerned that my last post may not have shown him in his best light.




He is not sure he wants to be associated with the home-made panties thing.



It is hard to be the husband of a blogger.




Hard when you know that at any moment your deepest secrets may be exposed to a virtual world.


So I thought this post might show him in a better light.




Because he bought me roses for Valentines Day. Eighty pink roses. It was late on Saturday and the market was packing up, he bartered and struck a deal. He had to carry them through town, it was dark, the pavements were icy, it was freezing cold and eighty long-stemmed roses are not the easiest thing to carry when your fingers are numb with cold.

But he did it because he knew how they would make me smile. He knew I would laugh when he sprung them upon me, he knew I would gasp with delight and surprise.


He knew how much fun I would have distributing eighty pink roses around the house, filling all sorts of available vessels and he knew how I would enjoy photographing the results of my labours. So you see, home-made panties or not, he's a keeper this Technical Advisor, a definite keeper.
