Socrates the olive tree

So, it turns out my husband and I are pretty much the same person, in that we almost brought each other identical gifts for our 4th wedding anniversary (This year it's fruit & flowers) - but he got there first. It's quite funny in a twisty little way.

He brought me an olive tree, because I've been looking at olive trees, because I wanted to buy him an olive tree - I didn't in the end because he's said things like we don't have room, or it won't survive, because he didn't want me to randomly buy an olive tree, because he wanted to buy me an olive tree - because I'd been looking at olive trees....

Can you see how this has gotten a little silly.

He also surprised me with the olive tree in an identical way I was going to do to him - down to the red bow (I know there's not many ways you can wrap a tree) - and he'd also thought about hiding it in the shed - which, if I'd have brought him an olive tree, is where I would have hid it.

I even wrote a note on his card to say do you fancy a trip to Homebase, where I'll buy you an olive tree..

Oh and he brought me the card I almost brought for him but thought was maybe a little bit girly (why do anniversary cards for men have teddies on them - why?? not that the card he brought me had teddies on it - he knows better then that)

Anyway - meet So Crates the olive tree.

Thank you sweetie xx
